What makes this movie goofs site different
from the others?
1. Most movie spoilers are eliminated
or warned about.
2. Goof-contributors are always
credited with desired web or e-mail address.
4. Visitors are encouraged to add
comments, corrections and explanations to goofs. Why
would one point of view be enough?
When and why did you start this
I started this site sometime in 1997. I saw some movie
goofs in a magazine and thought it would be a nice
idea to make a web site about them. And now, here I
am after all this time, still collecting goofs, and
I don't see an end to it. Without you, the visitors,
this site would have died years ago. I want to thank
a goof (or comment), but it was never added. Why?
There are 5 reasons for why your goof was not added:
1. The goof was already listed.
2. The goof was totally and utterly false.
3. You submitted movie trivia to the movie goofs
site. Go to the movie trivia site.
4. You did not specify which exact goof you
commented on, your post was not added. (I will not
read through hundreds of goofs to find find out which
exact goof you commented on.) Always specify what you
5. The goof got lost in my mail box (very rare).
it take such a long time before submitted goofs are added?
1. I am one person maintaining this site (as
a hobby). I do everything manually. I have a life,
which includes studying.
2. The process: first I copy the goof from my
mail box, then I paste it on the correct page on the
correct place. Then I read quickly through the goof
and correct the spelling/grammar. After that I copy/paste
the name of the goof-submitter and link his/her name
to desired e-mail or website address. I also have to
include what type of goof it is and what movie format
is (TV, DVD, VHS or Theatre). Then I make a link from
the index page to the page, where the new goof is added.
Finally, if necessary, I place my own comment or correction
after the goof.
3. Often people forget to mention what specific
goof they are referring to when adding a comment or
correction. Then I have to read through all the goofs
of a movie and try to find out which of them the comment
or correction is referring to. I am not Sherlock Holmes.
4. Sometimes I have to find out which year a
specific movie is made or what the correct title of
the movie is. I have to do research to get the facts
5. When the amount of
goofs for a movie exceeds 8, I make a separate page
for that movie. Making a page for one movie takes a
while: adding director, cast and links to posters and
Why are some goofs censored? For
example like this:
"When <blank> gets shot..."
To prevent spoiling someone's movie watching.
I would be pretty annoyed if I read a goof where the
plot is revealed. Well-known movies are not censored.
E.g. The Titanic, Star Wars and the like.
What's that blue-ish text all about?
Oh, text colored like this?
That's my, the webmaster's, comments/ thoughts/ additions/
point of view.
Do you check the accuracy of the
No, I put all goofs I receive on the site and let
the visitors correct them. If I am sure of the inaccuracy
of a goof, I won't add it, or I will add it and explain
why it is false.
What are gaffes, flaws, flubs, blunders,
They are synonyms to goofs. In other
words: they mean the same thing as the word "goof" does.
They are mistakes.
How do I post comments/corrections/explanations
to existing goofs.
First you go to the goof submitting page
and choose correct subject. Then you copy the text
of the goof you want to comment on into the biggest
text field. After that you place your comments under
the original text and hit the submit button.
