10+ Mistakes In 'Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets' That You Definitely Didn't Notice

Alright people, these are the mistakes that have happened throughout the second Harry Potter movie. This has been an ongoing series, and if you want to see the one for Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone click here.

1. Harry's Eyes

WB

This truly must be a world of magic and mystery, because throughout the whole movie Harry's eyes change from green to blue.

Maybe that has something to do with Voldemort?

2. You Can Clearly See A Cameraman In The Dueling Scene

WB

It's kind of hard to see in this picture, but all the way to the left at the moment where Snape picks up Malfoy (post duel) you can see a cameraman.

3. The Open/Closed Howler

WB

It's obviously a magical envelope, so I won't give it too much flak. However, when Errol drops off the Howler, the seal is open.

Howl-ever (thank you, thank you), when Ron goes to open it, the seal is closed.

4. "I Didn't Get Rid Of The Bandon Banshee By Smiling At Him"

WB

There is an interesting line that makes Professor Lockhart even stupider than he is, and also outs him as a fak early on in the movie.

Banshees can only be women, so the above line is false.

5. Snapes Uses Expelliarmus

WB

During the dueling scene, Snape uses Expelliarmus on Professor Lockhart and he flies backward... his wand still in hand.

The whole point of the expelliarmus spell is to disarm your opponent.

6. The Bewitched Knitting Needles

WB

When Harry enters the Weasley's house for the first time, he sees a pair of bewitched knitting needles putting together what looks to be a blanket?

Anyways, the knitting needles are clacking together but not actually making any stitches.

7. Harry Doesn't Know Much About Snakes

WB

When Hermione and Ron tell Harry he's a Parselmouth, he says to them: "I know. I mean I accidentally set a python on my cousin Dudley once".

But it wasn't a python, it was a boa constrictor.

8. Fake Hedwig

WB

In a way, I'm actually pretty happy about this mistake.

When Harry gets denied access to platform 9 and 3/4, he smashes into the wall with his trolley. So does Hedwig, or should I say the Hedwig doll.

9. When Professor McGonagall Threatens To Expel Them

WB

Or at least when she tells the trio that she's "not going to expel them".

It wouldn't be up to her, as Dumbledore is the headmaster and would have the final say.

10. Blood On The Sword

WB

After Harry stabs the Basilisk, he yanks out the sword and it hardly has any blood on it.

However, when he brings it into Dumbledore's office it's at least 50% covered.

11. The CGI Dobby

WB

At the beginning of the movie, when Dobby is running around Harry's room making a fuss, Harry's eyes aren't fast enough to keep up with the CGI model.

Apparently, neither was the puppeteer who gave him something to look at in the first place.

12. The Dursley's Good Hearts

WB

There is a scene where Vernon says the line: "purely out of the goodness of our hearts" then clutches the wrong side of his chest.

However, maybe this was done to show he was an idiot.

13. Ink Pot Open, Ink Pot Closed

WB

When Harry is communicating with Tom Riddle's diary, in one shot we see that the inkpot beside him is open.

Then, when we cut to his POV, it's closed.

14. Black Pole Out Of Nowhere

WB

During this scene, when Harry is looking at the shrunken heads in the Diagon Alley shop, in the next shot (when it cuts out to a wide) there's a random black pole that was never beside him.
