You won’t find anyone claiming to go to the movies or watch TV shows just to catch up on bloopers. However, as they exist, people also enjoy seeing the flaws.
And these gaffes happen in productions all the time. From an untimely laugh to a cable framed in the scene that shouldn’t be therethere are still examples of slips committed by actors, directors, continuity writers and producers.
As our desire – in addition to informing – is to bring fun to you, we put together a list of the best and most unusual steps on the entertainment ball. Check it out and have a good laugh!
1. game of Thrones
game of Thrones is one of the most successful series of all time, but like any great production, it has not escaped bloopers throughout its episodes.
One of the show’s most famous failures happened in the eighth season, when nothing less than a cup of Starbucks – yes, that famous coffee shop – appeared at the tableduring an episode.
There were those who thought it was indirect advertising, a common practice in entertainment, but HBO published a note saying it was a mistake.
two. Star Wars IV – A New Hope
First of the films in the original trilogy, Star Wars IV – A New Hope, falls in the line of classic films. What also became classic was a stormtrooper headbutt during one of the scenes.
Always attentive to what he was filming, even to prevent recording errors, George Lucas noticed the actor’s bump, but decided to keep it in the film and even inserted a sound system for the beat.
3. pulp Fiction
Anyone who follows Quentin Tarantino’s filmography is certainly passionate about pulp Fiction. Now, has that same fan ever caught this flaw in one of the film’s most iconic scenes?
When the characters of John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson are ready to execute a person, another actor comes out of a room and fires shots at them. Due to a continuity failure, the holes appear before the shots.
4. A beautiful woman
A beautiful woman it’s a classic from the Afternoon Session, but that doesn’t take the movie off the blooper list. In the scene where Julia Roberts and Richard Gere have breakfast, a funny situation occurs.
Throughout most of the sequence, Roberts eats a croissant. At the end of the scene, she is eating a pancake with her hands. However, the open framing shows that there were no pancakes on the table. What a bore, huh?
Over 10 seasons, we could show several bloopers of Friends – one of the most outstanding series of the 1990s. Therefore, we selected a sequence of “replacements”. Curious?
It’s just that in some scenes, the actors were momentarily absent from the re-recording of an excerpt, being replaced by their stunt doubles. It so happens that whoever directed these scenes was not always able to cut them out of the frame.
6. Fast and furious
in the first movie Fast and furious the scene where Jesse loses the race to Johnny Tran – which leads to the climax of the conflict with Toretto – there’s a staggering blooper.
The scene shows Tran’s character initially wearing a black button-down shirt. Moments before the flag, the actor is wearing a tank top. Nothing like a continuity error, right?
7. Youth in Rage
Indie classic from the 1980s, Youth in Rage follows young Mick O’Brien, who is sent to juvie after accidentally killing a rival’s brother.
In the film’s most famous fight scene, a cameraman is seen in the middle of the battle wheel. It’s one of those recording errors so absurd that you wonder how they let it air.
8. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
the franchise Lord of the Rings also committed his gaffes, but we highlight the sequence of The Two Towers. Merry and Pippin were captured by Orcs, and during a battle they try to free themselves from their bonds.
In just a few seconds, the characters appear with their hands bound, released, and then bound again. A franchise-sized continuity error – big!
9. Brave Heart
Anyone who lived through the 1990s knows the importance of Brave Hearta film produced, directed and performed by Mel Gibson, which tells the story of William Wallace fighting King Edward I of England.

Despite the 5 Oscars, including the one for best picture, the feature missed some recording errors, like a car in the middle of a bloody battle in the middle of the 13th century.
10. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
Another franchise that was very successful in theaters, Pirates of the Caribbean did not escape the gaffes. In The Curse of the Black Pearlfans found at least 15 bloopers.
Of all of them, we will highlight what we consider the most absurd: in one of the scenes on the boat, the production team appears with the pirates. Certainly much worse than a continuity error!
