Did you catch that? Hollywood's movie blunders

Did You Catch That? Hollywood's Movie Blunders

Even after all the money and man hours spent to craft a major Hollywood movie, mistake or two always slips through the cracks.

From Johnny Depp's unusual shipmate in Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl to a Storm Trooper snafu in Star Wars, we're examining the most infamous movie blunders.

Let's start with Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl. Look at the left edge of the screen and you'll see that a movie crew member in a cowboy hat is caught in the scene.

In Days of Thunder, Tom Cruise plays racecar driver Cole Trickle. However, there's a script slip up when a co-star introduces herself as Claire, and then says 'hi Tom!' instead of 'hi Cole!'

Yes, even beloved Braveheart isn't blunder-free. In 13th century Scotland, horseback was the best way to get around ... but in super slow-motion, there's one detail that was actually missed: a car! Maybe it was Mel Gibson's ride back to the hotel?

The overlooked error in Star Wars looks like it hurt. When the stormtroopers break into the control room, the guy on the right hits his head on the door frame. Ouch.

It's a gunshot gaffe in Hitcchcock's classic North by Northwest. When you watch it on replay, the kid in the background plugs up his ears before the gun goes off. Guess he was tired of hearing that loud blast.

I know it's an old movie (but one of my favs.) In Le Mans Steve McQueen crashes & gets a bloody lip. In following scenes he has no sign of fat lip or even a bruise.

In Commando with Swartznagger, the scene with the porsche, it is rolled on its side and he flips it back over and gets in and drives off, the car he drives off in is in mint shape no damage to the side it rolled over on.

I think you should forgive the filmmakers for that one, since you have blundered Mr. Schwarzenegger's name

The best one was in Rich Man Poor Man when Nick Nolte gets into a fight and takes out his opponents Right eye which they show patched the following week it was the opposite eye that was patched

I have seen Braveheart many a times and I must admit to never having seen a car in it. And yes I know a car shouldn't have been around the 13th century Europe, just like corn and potatoes.

Photography blunders are for the most part humorous to see and don't realy spoil the entertainment. What bugs me are scripts that change history in so called "based on a true story" or biographical movies. They should be required to reveal in the opening of the movie the license they took in changing actual events.

I did not miss the 'blunders', I just didn't care what mistakes were made. Note to AOL; Every single movie has at least 1 blunder. So, go through the 50,000 films and find them, then tell us about them. We still won't care. Why? Because we are/were happy with the film(s) before 'Oop's, there was a mistake' came along.
