13 Times Movie Makers Made Jarring Mistakes And Thought We Will Not Notice

8 months ago

Certainly, achieving perfection in a movie’s every detail can be challenging. Audiences, however, expect to avoid glaring bloopers—such as costumes from the wrong era or objects magically vanishing or appearing. While opinions vary, many of us find these mistakes distracting and prefer not to encounter them while watching a film.

1. Titanic

The makeup of the Edwardian era was quite different from what we see on the face of Rose, the main character of Titanic. Lips were supposed to be red, and rouge was applied to get that healthy, rosy flush on the cheeks. Also, eye makeup wasn’t that common, as the eyebrows were the main focus in this era.

2. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

In To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, the cardigan Lara Jean is wearing was inside out in one scene and looked normal in the next.

3. The Lost City

In The Lost City, Sandra Bullock did the adventure in a skin-tight jumpsuit and doesn’t look like to have a pocket. So, it’s a fair question to ask, “Where did she keep her phone?”

4. Alexander

Angelina Jolie in Alexander looks stunning, but there are a few mistakes. At the time, fabrics weren’t sewn together. Also, a noble woman would never appear in public without a belt. The Ancient Greek costume was a chiton (an undergarment draped about the body) and a cloak on top of it called a peplos.

5. Marie Antoinette

While working on Marie Antoinette, the costume designers tried to show the atmosphere of the time, but there were no Converse shoes in the 18th century. The dresses in the film didn’t have as much lace as they should have, which was very indicative of the Rococo style of the time.

6. Cleopatra

Here’s another example of changing history in order to make the look more interesting. Cleopatra ruled from 51-30 BCE when there could be no clothes that even remotely resembled those worn by Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra. But as the Egyptian Empress, Taylor was very memorable in this role.

7. Mean Girls

In Mean Girls, Cady came from Africa. But the picture in her room shows her riding an Asian elephant instead of an African elephant. It turns out it wasn’t even an elephant since the actress admitted she was sitting in a wooden box covered with a blue blanket. So, in this case, it’s the editor’s mistake for not doing enough research about the African elephant.

8. Lord of the Rings

Unfortunately, even the creators of The Lord of the Rings made a mistake. When Sam says goodbye to Frodo, we first see Sam wearing a vest that disappears in the next shot.

9. Dirty Dancing

In Dirty Dancing, Johnny is meant to drive a car. But if you observe what changes the car’s gears, called the gear shift, you can tell that the car is actually not moving and is just resting.

10. Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood

In Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood, the character of Brad Pitt wears a Bullhead watch that didn’t come out until 1970, and the film is set in 1969.

11. Silver Linings Playbook

In Silver Linings Playbook, the main character, played by Bradley Cooper, wrapped his feet with duct tape while sitting on the floor. But in the next shot, the tape is gone, and Jennifer Lawrence is wrapping his feet for him.

12. Doctor Strange

In Doctor Strange, doctors are doing brain surgery without masks. For surgeons, their assistants, and scrub nurses, this is impossible in real life.

13. Alpha

And the patterned sole in Alpha is definitely a mistake because the film is set when there could be no soles like this.
