10 Movie Mistakes in Film History That Only the Fans Have Spotted
Everyone enjoys movies. Yet, there comes a time we, as an audience, start overlooking the surprising costume details even the producers may not have recognized. In this article, 5-Minute Crafts has compiled such costume malfunctions, mistakes, etc., that went unnoticed in the movies, but only the fans spotted them quickly.
1. Titanic (1997)
We all remember the young and beautiful Kate Winslet as Rose’s character in Titanic. Remember the scene when she raises her head so we can see the beauty mark or mole on her left cheek. Then again, that same mark appears on her right cheek throughout the movie and when she’s talking to Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio). If you haven’t noticed it yet, check it out again.
2. Braveheart (1995)
In the past, the Celtic tribes used blue body paint (woad) during the battles, but it stopped around the end of the Roman era — 800 years before the Braveheart film events. In Scotland, kilts were worn hundreds of years after Wallace’s time. Also, the organized rules for kilts and patterns used in the movie were actually Victorian inventions, which should have been much later than this film’s time.
3. Dirty Dancing (1987)
In Dirty Dancing, the beloved ’’Baby’’ character went from a shy girl to a confident teenager with her dances and moves. However, something wasn’t just right because Baby’s denim shorts were in the 1980s style, but the movie took place in 1963.
4. King Arthur (2004)
This movie takes place around 400 A.D., yet we see the knights on the saddles with stirrups. However, it wasn’t until centuries after the fall of the Western Roman Empire that metal stirrups were introduced in Europe.
5. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)
The Harry Potter movie events take place in the 1990s. In the film, Dudley Dursley (Harry Melling) sits in the living room in shorts with the G-Unit logo at the bottom. The fun fact is that it’s a brand that 50 Cent founded in 2003.
6. The Danish Girl (2015)
7. Django Unchained: Django Time Travels (2012)
Indeed, Django’s sunglasses made Jamie Foxx’s character look cool in this movie and attracted many of us. The fun fact is that the movie takes place in the 1858s, and those shades weren’t around then.
8. Pretty Woman (1990)
Vivian (Julia Roberts) stole our hearts in the beloved rom-com Pretty Woman. In one scene, while Vivian was taking a bite from a croissant, suddenly, upon taking the second bite, it wasn’t a croissant anymore but a pancake.
9. Notting Hill (1999)
One of the unforgettable goofs in this lovely movie could be when William (Hugh Grant) was sitting in a hotel suite across from Anna (Julia Roberts) to interview her. The two wide, brass door handles didn’t go unrecognized when they quickly changed to narrow, brass, and closed-lattice finger plates in the follow-up scene.
