11 Goofs That Neither Film Directors, Nor Editors, Nor Even Producers Noticed, But We Did

2 years ago

When filming a movie and TV series, film directors try to pay attention to every little detail to make the movie look believable. Hundreds and even thousands of people can work on a single movie. However, even a multi-million dollar budget and a big crew can’t guarantee that you won’t find any goofs in the completed film.

At Bright Side, we put together a list of movie goofs that moviemakers didn’t notice, but attentive viewers did.

The Witcher (2019)

Based on the book series of the same name by Andrzej Sapkowski, the Netflix TV series The Witcher immediately became very popular. However, some details caused mixed emotions in the fans of the books. For example, Ciri, who lives in the 13th century, looks more like a modern woman as she gets older. “When did she find time to get her eyebrows and eyelashes done?” fans wondered.

Little Women (2019)

In one of the scenes with Timothée Chalamet, we can see a plastic bottle in the background. And if you look closer, you’ll see another bottle made from metal.

Downton Abbey (2010)

The creators of the Downton Abbey TV series put a lot of effort into making sure the costumes correspond to their historic era. However, this didn’t save them from a small mistake in Mary Crawley’s undergarments. The drama unfolds in the Edwardian era starting in 1912 when long corsets that didn’t cover the breasts became trendy. But in one of the scenes, Michelle Dockery puts on a classic model which fully covers her breasts.

Gladiator (2000)

In historical movies, we often see costumes that correspond to modern trends. Gladiator is one of these movies. And it doesn’t matter that Lucilla, Marcus Aurelius’ daughter, was a fashionista in her time, it’s hardly possible that she could have had a bone corset in the 2nd century.

The Last Duel (2021)

In one of the scenes of the movie The Last Duel, Marguerite de Carrouges is petting a Boston Terrier puppy — a breed that originated around 1875. But the events of the movie took place in 1386.

Murder on the Orient Express (2017)

On his first night on the Orient Express, Hercule Poirot puts on a sophisticated “shield” for his mustache. However, on the second night, we can see Hercule lying in bed without it. This forgetfulness contradicts Poirot’s scrupulosity and looks like a mistake made by the moviemakers.

Mary Queen of Scots (2018)

The movie begins with the scene where 19-year-old Mary Stuart returns from France to Scotland in 1561, and ends with her execution in 1587, covering a period of 26 years.

Throughout the entire movie, the queens’ looks don’t change except for their hair and the smallpox scars on Elizabeth I’s face, who was played by Margot Robbie. It’s a miracle!

300 (2006)

Even if all of the costumes are well-thought-out, underwear can give away mistakes made by costume designers. This is what happened in the movie 300. It’s a mystery how a modern bra could appear in Ancient Sparta.

Judy (2019)

In one of the scenes, the main heroine, portrayed by Renée Zellweger, is eating cake with her right hand. But Judy Garland’s fans know that she was left-handed, thus wouldn’t have done this. It’s interesting that in the earlier scene where the heroine was signing autographs, the moviemakers took this feature of hers into account. But after that, they probably relaxed and forgot about it.

The Revenant (2015)

The events of the movie unfold in the northwest of America in the 19th century. The main hero, Hugh Glass, finds himself in extremely severe winter conditions. He has to find a way out of the woods alone and take revenge on a traitor.

The only thing Glass has is a water flask. He has neither a knife nor a blade. Despite that, his mustache doesn’t seem to grow at all.

I, Tonya (2017)

When Tonya takes part in the 1994 Winter Olympics, we can see new ice skates on her feet in the scene where her lace gets torn. But the truth is that figure skaters perform during competitions in the same skates they usually wear during training. So the boots should be noticeably worn-out as we can see in old videos.

Do you often pay attention to movie goofs? Do they ruin your impression of the movie you’re watching? Tell us in the comments below.
