Movie and TV Mistakes: DOH!

Which movie has the most mistakes, like factual errors, visible crew or equipment, continuity mistakes, etc.? According to, the movie with the most mistakes is "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl," with 220 mistakes, followed closely by "Apocalypse Now," with 219 mistakes, "The Birds" (212), Star Wars (209), and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (203).

Example of a factual error in the movie "Spinal Tap": In the scene where Derek Smalls is having trouble with the airport security the gate only beeps when he walks 'in'. The gate would beep no matter what way he walked through it.

Continuity problem from "Cuckoo's Nest": In the scene where the boys are playing blackjack, watch McMurphy's (Jack Nicholson) cigarette as he talks to Martini about the rules of the game. It changes length throughout the scene.

Who thinks of these things?
