10 Worst Movie Mistakes Of 2021 (So Far)

Even when you try and enjoy a movie, some mistakes are too blatant to ignore.

The average film is so rife with bloopers, you don't have to try hard to find them. It doesn't matter if the movie in question is an indie flick or a $200 million blockbuster - there's bound to be plotholes and continuity errors galore.

But just because there's a few blunders here and there, that shouldn't spoil the fun. In fact, spotting anachronisms and goofs can be hilarious. (That Jeans Guy crewmember who accidentally popped up in The Mandalorian became so popular, he was incorporated into Star Wars lore.) So, even if you spot an inconsistency in a scene, most viewers just go along with it.

Still, every once in a while, there is an error that is so ridiculous, it can ruin the entire experience. You might see an object switching location in-between shots, a piece of tech in the wrong time period, or a boom mic popping into shot. Some of these gaffes are so easy to avoid, it's baffling the film crew didn't notice them.

They may not be the biggest movies mistakes of the year but they are definitely the ones that bugged viewers the most.

10. Lion's Whiskers - Coming 2 America

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

Coming 2 America kicks off with King Akeem of Zamunda discovering he has a bastard son called Lavelle. When Lavelle wishes to join the royal family, the king warns him he must pass several gruelling trials to be eligible for the throne.

Although Lavelle wishes to prove his worth, he becomes terrified when he learns one of the tests involves cutting off a lion's whiskers. Even though the potential prince succeeds at retrieving his prize, how he accomplished it doesn't really add up.

While the king of the jungle approaches him, Lavelle snips the lion's whiskers on the right side. But in the next shot, the whiskers on the left are cut instead. Not only that, the whiskers are unmistakably white during most of this scenes but become darker and two-toned when Lavelle is holding them.

What makes these errors so bizarre is that the lion in this scene is computer-generated. Considering it would've taken months to render the creature, you'd think one of the animators would've clocked how the colours don't match and the cut whiskers switch from right to left.
