10 More Movie Mistakes You Can't Believe You Didn't Spot

You'll never see these movies quite the same way again.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

There likely isn't a movie in existence that doesn't have a single mistake, whether a quick continuity error, dubbing mishap, or special effects gaffe.

It is quite literally unavoidable where film productions - dealing with hundreds of moving parts and crew members - are concerned, and that's absolutely fine.

All the same, sometimes mistakes are so strange or so apparent that audiences might kick themselves for not noticing them sooner. But for sure, once you've seen these mistakes, you're never going to be able to un-see them for basically the rest of your moviegoing life.

These mistakes certainly seem obvious when they're pointed out like this, even though the overwhelming majority of viewers have seemingly been too wrapped up in all the excitement to notice.

In some cases you have to wonder what the cast and crew were thinking during both shooting and editing, that they missed something so blatant.

And yet, this speaks to how chaotic and time-poor the average movie shoot is, and if we're being quite honest, how little the average overworked crew member probably cares about "insignificant" mistakes like this. All the same, they're in your brain now...

10. The Lifeguard's Magic Shoe - Jaws

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Steven Spielberg's Jaws is such a perfect organism of a movie that it's incredibly easy to forgive its flaws, or perhaps even gloss over them entirely.

Case in point, almost exactly half-way through the film, the shark enters a pond area and attacks a man who is out rowing a boat near Michael Brody (Chris Rebello).

The man's boat is overturned and he falls into the water with the shark fast approaching him, at which point we can clearly see that the man is barefoot and definitely not wearing any shoes.

Except, a few shots later when the shark devours him and we see his severed leg hit the bottom of the ocean floor, he's very clearly wearing a white tennis shoe.

Considering how iconic - and, to kids of a certain age, traumatising - the shot of the severed leg is, it's honestly surprising that more viewers haven't noticed this discrepancy over the years.

We can assume there was some miscommunication between Spielberg and the movie's prop team, or that the actor playing the victim simply removed his shoes without anyone noticing.
