Catching goofs on film has been one of the most romantic activities associated with film buffs. And some of the on-screen mistakes have over the years acquired a legendary reputation among film lovers. The thing is, there are many more than one would expect. Why? Because movies are incredibly complex projects which involve big numbers of people, each of them with their own specific task, but in a constant flux of movement and activity that has to be coordinated impeccably.
Sometimes, however, as in any other job, mistakes do happen. Some are almost unnoticeable, while others are just hilariously crude. Here are 18 you should definitely know.
1. Jurassic Park
It’s hard to notice a studio sprinkler simulating rain when you have a Tyrannosaurus Rex right in front of you. When you do notice it, it kind of looks like the dinosaur is shooting water up like a whale does.
2. Despicable Me
Did you happen to notice the kiss that one minion places on the head of another? Probably more of a well-calculated detail, rather than a mistake.
3. Terminator 2: Judgement Day
Although he is a Terminator, that knife definitely should not have bent like that – proven by the physical injuries the Terminator sustains later in the movie.
4. Year One
An extra getting friendly with a goat might be the only thing worth remembering from this Jack Black/Michael Cera comedy.
In reality, Jack probably would have lost his hand. It ultimately would have mattered little, though.
6. King Kong
The extras in this scene were so scared of King Kong that they didn’t even care about the fact that their wigs were falling off.
7. Raiders Of The Lost Ark
The gun versus sword fight scene was so mesmerizing, you probably didn’t notice the incredibly lazy butcher in the background who is flailing the knife gently, probably in order not to distract the audience members.
8. Mr. Nanny
As the film is quickly drawing to a close, while Hulk Hogan is riding away on his bike, there is a person in the background whose activity suspiciously looks like throwing a dog in the water.
9. The Wizard Of Oz
Those definitely don’t look like ruby red slippers…
10. Star Wars
In this iconic Star Wars scene Mark Hamill clearly missed his stunk kick, while Boba Fett is flying to his doom in the background.
Everybody knows Peter Parker can kiss while being suspended upside down, but what about those windows who seem to have miraculously fixed themselves?
12. Titanic (2)
Wait… how did he get that life-jacket?
13. Ocean’s 11
In this scene, Brad Pitt goes from holding a wine glass, to holding a plate of food, then back to the wine glass in a matter of seconds.
14. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
What does a cowboy do on a pirate ship?!
15. You Only Live Once
At the end of the film there is an explosion and the beautiful white cat totally freaks out. The actor kept it tightly pinned to his chest to keep the scene going, but the terrorized face is clearly visible.
Who knew XIII century Scots wore baseball caps?

17. Shaun of the Dead
Chris Martin from Coldplay getting zombified!
18. The Emperor’s New Groove
Another one that must have been done on purpose: here, the cactus looks like a llama.
