They're so obvious, it's a crime they haven't been removed or changed.

Sometimes, even the most well-produced movies and TV shows can fall victim to glaring mistakes or plot inaccuracies that can make the audience cringe.

Here are 7 painful mistakes in movies and TV shows that make us wince and keep us from getting caught up in the story.

1. The Eyes of Harry and His Mom in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

The most authentic moment in the Harry Potter series is when Harry is constantly reminded that he has his mother Lily's eyes. However, in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Lily is portrayed with brown eyes, even though the character is described in the books as having green eyes, and Harry himself has blue eyes in the movies.

2. Mustache Change in Avengers: Endgame

In the last Avengers movie, there was a continuity error with Tony Stark and his mustache, which drastically changed shape and color over the course of the movie. Apparently, Robert Downey Jr. had to reshoot some moments and by that time he had already shaved his mustache. Well, there is no way we can ever be mad at Iron Man.

3. The Bullet Holes in Pulp Fiction

Bullet holes can be seen in the walls of Brett's apartment before Vincent and Jules start shooting in the opening scene of Quentin Tarantino 's masterpiece movie. This error went unnoticed during the production and made it into the final cut of the movie. But we guess we can forgive Quentin for anything.

4. The Coffee Cup in Game of Thrones

During a scene in the show's final season, a Starbucks cup was accidentally left on set beside Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen. The mistake went unnoticed and made it into the episode, causing a buzz on the Internet, but HBO later issued a humorous statement about the incident, and the cup was digitally removed. But the North remembers everything.

5. Tran's Shirt in The Fast and the Furious

Inaccuracies in clothing, hairstyles, or jewelry positions are common in movies. In The Fast and the Furious, there is a noticeable inaccuracy that occurs during the race scene between Jesse and Tran. In one shot, Tran is seen wearing a sleeved shirt, but in the next shot, he is suddenly seen wearing a tank top.

Fast and Furious characters can travel to outer space, who says they can’t change their clothes while racing?

6. The Demogorgon Piece in Stranger Things

A minor flaw in Stranger Things that fans have noticed is the presence of the Demogorgon figure in the Dungeons and Dragons board games that the characters like to play. Although the show is set in the early 1980s, the figure was actually released only in 1984.

7. Garrett’s Body in Wednesday

During one of her visions, Wednesday witnesses the death of Garrett Gates, a normie who was in love with Morticia and regularly stalked her. However, the scene of his death is inaccurate, as the position of Garrett's body changes with each shot.
