Sometimes when we’ve been made aware of a movie mistake, we watch it again and wonder how we could have missed it before. This is especially true if the mistake shows up in a beloved movie we’ve all seen a hundred times.
But in a way, it’s more surprising that a viewer caught that mistake at all. With how easy it is to be lost in the excitement of a great movie, it would take some keen observational skills to catch something amiss in the background.
It’s even more impressive if the mistake is only visible for a brief period, but I suppose it’s possible to see something that doesn’t feel right and not know what it is until you slow it down.
But however the cinematic detectives among us uncovered these mistakes, they were kind enough to share them for everyone to enjoy.
So here are 16 mistakes that seemed to hide in plain sight. Tell us which ones surprised you!
