Many people were a fan of this 1969 romantic comedy musical film, which was directed by the great Gene Kelly. The film won three Oscars and four Academy Awards. Despite this, it wasn’t a big commercial success. And still, many people loved the costumes and glittery dresses, which perfectly fit the film’s time period of 1890. And yet, despite the exquisiteness of the outfits, there was something particularly off with one beautiful dress. It seemed to be transformed in only a few seconds.
What we are referring to is one scene where Cornelius (played by Michael Crawford) is dancing with a girl who is decked out beautifully in an extravagant red dress. During this scene, it is quite obvious that the dress has its flaws, as is seen by the hem dragging on the pavement and thus dirtying the bottom of the dress. During the next scene, the girl notices that her dress is dirty, so she sets off to change into something cleaner. This happened in a very short span of time. While this is a tiny detail, it nonetheless is a flaw that is worth noting.
"Pirates of the Caribbean": Redcoats, Really?
What's there not to love about the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise? There is this one thing that history lovers surely noticed..the uniforms designed for the British Soldiers. They were seen in the infamous red coats, but that uniform wasn't used until the late 1700s.
Since the movie's premise takes place in the early 1700s, the uniform's use wasn't quite accurate. That doesn't mean the film wasn't fun!
Pirates of the Caribbean III: Singapore Wasn't Called Singapore
The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has grossed over $4.5 billion worldwide, making it the 14th highest-grossing film series of all time. The film series has had people hooked from its first release in 2003 with "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl." This first film grossed $654 million worldwide. The films continued to see success and the next film, which was released 3 years later, earned almost $1.1 billion at the worldwide box office. The third film, "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End," was released in 2007.
During this film, the Black Pearl crew are on their way to Singapore in the 1700s. However, all history fanatics out there will know that the area we know today as Singapore wasn’t Singapore at that time. It wasn’t named Singapore until 1819, when the British established a trading post there. When the movie took place, the area was ruled by the Johor Sultanate, which consisted of parts of modern Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia. This historical oversight is overshadowed by all the great things the films manage to do, like combine horror, romance, and comedy to create something very unique.
Closer: Portman's Bra Goes On Strike
If you thought that bra malfunctions on the list were over, you’re mistaken. In this 2004 star-powered film, Natalie Portman joins the rankings of wardrobe malfunctions with some trouble in the bra department. While you would expect the character to show some skin considering that she plays a prostitute, the young actress hadn’t before shown more than a little of her stomach or cleavage.
But, in one scene in the film, while Portman is having a conversation, she has a wardrobe malfunction when her bra goes on strike, leaving her to show more than she would have preferred to show. This goes without saying that more was shown than the actress or director had expected.
The Notebook: James Marsden's Hair Is Constantly Changing Color
Regarded as one of the best romantic comedies by many women out there, 2004’s "The Notebook" huddled together many girls for movie night and many couples (not by the men’s choice.) But, this favorite romantic comedy still has its faults, despite its success at the box office and cult following.
Many loved the film thanks to the passionate love that Noah and Allie have for one another. And yet, others are drawn to the film because of the wealthy Lon Hammond, Jr. He looks great; there’s no denouncing that. But, his hair seems to have a special power that leaves even the most sparkling of vampires in despair. From shot to shot, his hair seems to make the impossible possible and changes colors from black to brown. If you are able to look past that and enjoy the movie for what it is, then you might thoroughly enjoy yourself.
