9 Movie Fails Messed Up The Story Timeline That Make Viewers So Confused

Before making a movie, a lot of planning and forecasting goes into the production, right from the first shot to the final cut. The depth and breadth of things that could go wrong between these two points are immense. Despite it, some movies avoided total on-set implosion and actually ended up with spectacular results.
Even the most successful movies indeed have at least one (or more) notable error. Even directors who are known for their strict attention to detail are sometimes bound to mess up during movie production. Obviously, it's a part of filmmaking, and eagle-eye fans can spot mistakes and continuity errors.
We've completed a compilation with some scenes that are clear instances of these fails. Click here, here, and here if you want to see more.

If you’re a fan of “Friends”, you remember that Phoebe learns she is pregnant during the 4th season after accepting to be the surrogate mother to her brother Frank Jr. and his wife’s babies. At that time, Ross starts dating Emily, and Phoebe’s belly was growing.
It is weird that Ross said before Phoebe gave birth to the triplets that his relationship with Emily lasted 72 days. In that timeframe, they did a lot, from getting married to having a quarrel and breaking up at the same time Phoebe gave birth. It means that she was only pregnant for 10 weeks.
