Mistakes from the 50 best movies of all time

Stacker Logo By Jacob Osborn of Stacker | Slide 1 of 51: Hollywood movie-making takes time, money, cooperation, careful planning, and a painstaking knack for detail. But even the most meticulous preparations sometimes can’t spare a film from its share of goofs and mistakes, to the delight (or chagrin) of observant viewers. The majority of these goofs take the form of simple continuity errors. For example, a glass might be full in one shot and empty in the very next. Other mistakes appear by way of historical misfires, major plot holes, visible camera equipment, or crew members getting caught in a shot. And every now and then, the annals of cinema are graced with a goof of epic proportions. White cars in the background during a battle scene in “Braveheart?” Seriously, Mel Gibson?

Since even the world’s greatest films are prone to the occasional flub, Stacker is embracing the imperfections and listing mistakes from the 50 best movies of all time. To determine the rankings, Stacker derived a score based on equally weighted IMDb ratings and Metacritic scores. Only English-language movies released in the United States were considered for the list, and each film needed at least 20,000 votes on IMDb to qualify. If the movie didn’t have a Metascore, it was not included. Here, check out mistakes in the 50 best movies of all time.
