Did You Catch These Obvious Mistakes In Famous Hollywood Movies?

Anyone that watches movies usually watches because they have an interest in what it’s about. Some of those people have a good knowledge about the time frame that the movies are set in. Some, however don’t, but that doesn’t mean they can’t spot an obvious mistake. In terms of Hollywood budgets and what they spend on these movies, mistakes are inexcusable. Over the years there have been plenty of them.

Every once in a while you’ll hear someone say something that is supposed to be true in a movie but really isn’t. A good example of this would be “Eight Men Out." During the trial of the ballplayers, Buck Weaver stands up and shouts out his batting average during the World Series. In that classic scene, he actually says the wrong batting average, a fact that is way too easy to verify.

It’s not always lines and facts though. A lot of times there are costume mistakes. Today we will look at several of those that have happened over the years. Mistakes like how can someone be wearing a digital watch in a movie that was set decades before they were invented? Or the fact that Kevin Costner uses a telescope 300 years before they were made.

A lot of these are pretty funny when you think about it. How can mistakes like what you are about to see, happen and make the final edit of the film?

Saving Private Ryan

Black jump boots weren't worn until the 1950's. During the time the movie was set they wore brown jump boots.

My Girl

The movie is set in 1972. Mood Rings were not made until 1975. Clearly producers missed this fact.

Glory

This person in a Civil War movie is wearing a digital watch. Regular watches weren't even created until 1923. Someone obviously missed this glaring mistake.

American Hustle

The movie was set back in the 1970's. The Rolex watch wasn't made until 2005, so why is Stoddard Thorsen wearing a 2005 Rolex?
