Watching one of my all-time favorite movies, "Hoosiers", on our new DVD player we got for Christmas. I cannot figure out one thing in the movie, and I think the people in charge of Continuity in the movie missed this:

Near the beginning, the character of Buddy, one of the players, is kicked off the team by Coach Dale for shooting his mouth off, and you don't see him in the ensuing practice, or the first game of the season.

Then, magically, he shows up in game #2 as if nothing happens. An error on the part of the movie-makers? Or is there some unknown reason that I missed why he is suddenly back on the team?  Smile

Any "Hoosier" fans know why?

Nitpickers.com to the rescue! In the movie as originally filmed, there was a scene explaining Buddy's return, but it was cut from the finished version in order to keep the movie's run time under two hours. See http://www.nitpickers.com/movies/comments/30159.html.
In my experience as a "Master Nitpicker" on Nitpcikers.com, having reviewed at least a couple thousand submissions, I would add that plot holes of a similar nature are not uncommon in movies due to the fact that many scenes are frequently lost during the editing process.

Illiciting another chuckle is the clock above the main view screen on the bridge of the Enterprisein Star Trek VI that the producers mysteriously added.

They lose hopeless track of the timeline at least once, and in another case, you see that Mr Spock and Mr Chekov have apparently worked so long and hard and accumulated such banner careers in Starfleet as to be rewarded with duty at 1 in the morning (Chekov at the helm drunk.......if it were a 727, he'd be in deep puppy pudding, but it's only a starship.)  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Oh, I have another Star Trek gem: How about in "The Undiscovered Country" when Kim Cattral's character (damn, I can't remember her name offhand), has been found out as a conspirator against the peace treaty. Kirk is talking "on screen" with Sulu. When we first see Sulu, Cattral is standing in front of the view screen; back to Kirk, who asks a question; back to the view screen to Sulu-no Kim Cattral; back to Kirk; back to the view screen-lo and behold, Kim Cattral is standing there again! Back to Kirk, then back to the screen-she's gone again!

Continuity must be a wonderful job!  Big grin

Continuity errors are fun, aren't they  Smokin cool In addition to the editing process, they often result from the fact that movie scenes typically take much longer to film than their screen time would indicate. For instance, a scene that covers only a few minutes of screen time might have taken several days to film. Subtle changes in outdoor light levels or an actor's physical appearance (e.g. beard growth, puffiness around eyes) during that time can create a continuity error. Moreover, movie scenes are seldom if ever filmed in the same order that they will appear.
Most movie production companies employ people to look out for possible continuity errors. Even so, things occasionally slip through. A perfect example is in the biggest-budget movie of all time, Titanic; although the scenes on the ship take place over only a couple of days, the length of Kate Winslet's fingernails change noticeably.
