30 Epic Mistakes You Probably Never Noticed In Popular Movies


30 Epic Mistakes You Probably Never Noticed In Popular Movies

A proof that nothing is perfect.

Even the most talented directors, producers, and actors occasionally make mistakes. Famous works like Suicide Squad, Star Wars, Game of Thrones, and Marvel film Black Widow have all committed some of the most unbelievable mistakes. Eagle-eyed people have spotted awful movie inaccuracies.

Besides, the epic mistakes in our favorite movies, ranging from plot scenes to sometimes technical aspects, are just proof that nothing is perfect. Without any further ado, listed below are some mind-melting mistakes alongside brilliant performances you’ve possibly never noticed. Scroll through and enjoy!

Peter Dinklage In Pixels [2015].


The 2015 Adam Sandler video game comedy was essential without admiration. However, a concern was Peter Dinklage from Game of Thrones, who portrayed an obnoxious video game champion ‘Eddie The Fireblaster Plant’ bizarrely comically.

Alan Rickman In Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves [1991].

Kevin Costner’s performance in the Robin Hood adaption Prince of Thieves may not have ignited Sherwood Forest, but the same can’t be said for his co-star Alan Rickman. The Die Hard actor, who played the Sheriff of Nottingham, produced a superb performance, and there wasn’t anyone better at what he does.

Pretty Woman. 

The brunch scene from “Pretty Woman” has an inaccuracy. Unless you are so enamored with Julia Roberts’ beauty that you disregard what she’s eating, you probably didn’t notice her food changes from scene to scene. She starts eating a croissant, and a pancake is in her hands a moment later.

Fast And Furious [2001].

In the 2001 film Fast and Furious, they committed a grave error by switching out an item of clothing. When Tran and Jesse compete in a race, Tran is first dressed in a short-sleeve T-shirt that later transforms into a tank top.

Leonardo DiCaprio In The Great Gatsby [2013].

Warner Bros

Baz has always appeared like an unexpected choice to adapt F Scott Fitzgerald’s literary masterpiece due to the bombast and flair of his films. Leonardo DiCaprio, who is always excellent, was perfectly cast as Gatsby, striking the perfect balance of uncertainty, arrogance, and poignancy. 

Adam Driver In Star Wars: Episode IX- The Rise Of Skywalker [2019].


The final installment of the “Skywalker Saga” has plenty to be disliked, from the dialogue to how it all but abandoned the story arcs initially assigned to characters like Finn (John Boyega) and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran). With its masked antagonist Kylo Ren forced to go through many stories, Adam Driver didn’t cease to produce quality work, but then the force was undoubtedly low, and Driver did walk away with no damage to his reputation.

Florence Pugh In Black Widow [2021]. 

From veterans like Robert Redford and Michael Keaton to new stars like Michael B. Jordan, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has attracted great actors to its shores. Florence Pugh played Yelena in the 2021 blockbuster Black Widow and is one of the best up-and-comers. She is said to be so much better than Scarlett Johansson, who plays the lead in the movie, and the script was just not good enough.

Raul Julia In Street Fighter [1994].

The legendary Addams Family actor Raul Juliá sadly died in 1994 at 54 from a stroke. While it may seem terrible that Street Fighter was his final epic film, it was such a bad one. Raul’s role in it is nothing short of a cult phenomenon.

Michael K. Williams In Assassin’s Creed [2016].

Even by the standards of video game adaptations, Assassin’s Creed was bad. The characters and plot almost defied belief, and usually, bankable actors like Michael Fassbender were quite ridiculous in the 2016 film. But among all of this, the Wire’s Michael K. Williams gave a memorable performance as Moussa, a Haitian assassin.

Phil Hartman In Jingle All The Way [1996].

The late Phil Hartman practically made a living by vastly outperforming his co-stars. Hartman was referred to as the glue amid his eight-year tenure on Saturday Night Live, a time when the show’s reputation was at its lowest. However, he couldn’t keep the Christmas comedy Jingle from falling apart. 

Uma Thurman In Batman & Robin [1997].

Warner Bros

Uma Thurman’s performance in the movie from 1997 was better suited to the part than anyone else’s. She played the fern femme fatale Poison Ivy with comic ferocity. Uma did a fantastic job portraying the role of Poison Ivy, especially considering how well-groomed she was, how snarky she was, and how colorful her disguises were. 

Margot Robbie In Suicide Squad [2016].

David Ayer’s supervillain dirge Suicide Squad received universal condemnation from the critics. However, Margot Robbie’s performance was praised, and the Australian actress later returned to the part in two other films.

10 Things I Hate About You. 

Bianca inadvertently shoots her gym instructor with an arrow while training, which makes for a mildly comical moment. When a woman runs for help, you can see she first ran before halting and giving the camera a strange face.

Spider-Man [2002].

It would not be your fault if you missed a small mistake in “Spider-Man” (2002) because it occurs during a genuinely exciting scene. Spider-Man likely kissed Mary Jane’s backdrop without anybody noticing. 

Mathew Lillard In Scooby-Doo [2002].

Warner Bros

No other characters in the 2002 film adaptation of the cartoon Scooby-Doo came close to Matthew Lillard, whose huge, risky portrayal as the clueless slacker Shaggy Rogers is a master class in comprehending the task.


In the scene where Jack is painting Rose, Leonardo DiCaprio mispronounced “sofa” and instead said “bed.” Though he quickly recognized his mistake, James Cameron decided to leave this little flaw in the film.

Philip Seymour Hoffman In Along Came Polly [2004].

The late Phillip Seymour Hoffman was an actor who could give even the most superficial parts weight. The best illustration of this is in the critically panned rom-com Along Came Polly, where Hoffman gave an electrifying comic performance that stole not just a scene but the entire movie from Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston.

Oscar Isaac In Sucker Punch [2011].

Even by filmmaker Zack Snyder’s usual standards, Sucker Punch was an ugly mistake. The film, a fiction about a woman who tries to escape a mental institution through made-up universes, was ridiculed by critics. However, Oscar Isaac performed surprisingly well as a repulsive facility orderly.

Kristen Stewart In American Ultra [2015].

While Kristen Stewart has starred in some of the best films, she has also been in several awful productions. In the 2015 stoner-thriller American Ultra, she played the lover and handler of Jesse Eisenberg’s amnesiac CIA sleeper agent. Stewart did a remarkable job in this film, despite being horrible and never living up to its fantasy idea.

John C Reilly In Kong: Skull Island [2017].

On paper, Kong: Skull Island looks like it would be entertaining. But the film was a major disappointment. The sole saving grace was John C. Reilly, who briefly starred as a World War II aviator stranded on Skull Island after his plane was shot down.

Michelle Pfieffer In Grease 2 [1982].

The 1982 sequel to Grease fared worse than the original. But the 23-Year-Old newbie star Michelle Pfieffer, whose charisma and talents withstood the stench of the schlocky affair, was Grease 2’s one genuine redeeming feature.

Martin Freeman In The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey [2012].

New Line Cinema

The Lord of the Rings trilogy inspired Peter Jackson’s Hobbit prequels. Few people were ready for how awful they turned out to be. And if you can get beyond the terrible CGI and overly ambitious plot, you’ll agree that Martin Freeman was a fantastic choice for the role of a young Bilbo Baggins. No one plays a cheerful, put-upon everyman quite like him.

Anthony Hopkins In Transformers: The Last Night [2017].

Anthony Hopkins has been known to occasionally fake it, so when he receives a screenplay, he reportedly marks some pages with the initials “NAR” (No Acting Required). For this Transformers sequel, he undoubtedly made a ridiculous effort to be interesting in his character as a knowledgeable astronomer who has studied the history of Transformers.

Ewan McGregor In Star Wars: Episode III –Revenge Od The Sith [2005].

The driver wasn’t the only actor who bravely tried his best to give a strong performance in the Star Wars movie. Throughout the first two of George Lucas’s criticized prequels, McGregor’s portrayal of Obi-Wan Kenobi was criticized, but by the third, he found his footing.

Max Von Sydow In Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close [2011].

When the 9/11 movie first came out, it was criticized for being “exploitative” and seeking to capitalize on the tragedy of real life. However, Max Von Sydow’s performance spared the chops because of his touching – and wordless – performance as an elderly renter. He even received recognition for his efforts when he was nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.

Thomas Hayden Church In Spider-Man 3 [2007].

Sam Raimi’s trilogy finale was a chaotic mess of plotlines, too many foes, and bad haircuts. But Thomas Hayden Church, who plays the destined Flint Marko, AKA Sandman, who yet manages to escape the carnage with his head held high, is the one actor who truly conveyed melancholy in the film.

The Dark Night Rises.

You may have observed it was daytime before the police started chasing in a scene from The Dark Night Rises, but it abruptly changed tonight. Many individuals didn’t notice this abrupt and unnatural change because the situation was so vivid.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl. 

The pirate style is so unique and striking that it is obvious there was a person in the background wearing a cowboy hat and sunglasses. Unintentionally, one of the crew members most likely made the cut.

James McAvoy In Split [2016].

Split, the horror film from M. Night Shyamalan, had many issues, but McAvoy’s outstanding performance wasn’t one of them. It was a difficult feat to accomplish to play, basically, eight characters in one, but he pulled it off with finesse.

Tom Hanks In The Ladykillers [2004].

Buena Vista Pictures

The Coen brothers’ filmography includes The Ladykillers. It is viewed as their low point and Tom Hanks, who compellingly reinvented a role Alec Guinness played in the classic Ealing original, is in no way to blame for that. Hanks had never played a criminal band leader before, yet he was unctuous, intelligent, and incredibly evil.
