What Movie Had the Most Mistakes in 2010?

posted by Nell Minow

Iron Man 2 has the ‘most mistakes’, according to a new poll from MovieMistakes with 46 mistakes. Runners-up included “The A-Team” as number 2, and two Leonardo DiCaprio films, “Shutter Island” and “Inception” as third and fourth place, followed by “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” “Kick-Ass,” “The Other Guys,” “Toy Story 3,” “Salt” and “The Karate Kid.”
Mistakes were found by attentive movie-goers in a range of categories including continuity errors and factual mistakes. For example, in “Iron Man 2″ Ivan Vanko’s fake passport says Russkaja in Russian. That term is used for females. And In the opening senate scene, the Senator’s jar of water keeps turning around and moving closer/away from the sign with his name on between shots.
Of course no list like this is definitive. The top box office films are the ones with the most identified mistakes because more people see them and more people see them more than once. But it is still a lot of fun to read through for the “gotcha” thrill and for the fun of seeing how passionate people are about movies.

    This sounded like a fun article to read for the ‘gotcha’ entertainment, but when I click on the “read” link embedded in your post, it simply leads me to the Barnes and Noble page promoting the e-reader, The Nook. Where can I go to get the full story of the movie mistakes of 2010? Thank you!

    Thanks, Donna — I’ve corrected the link. It’s more a list than an article, but I think you’ll enjoy it.
