You Probably Missed This Really Obvious Flaw In The 'Harry Potter' Movies

Harry Potter is one of the most loved film series of recent times. Therefore by telling you that it is flawed in so many ways I'm effectively opening myself up for a world of abuse from Potter fans.

However, news flash for you - all of the movies are littered with errors and plot holes.

One of these flaws doesn't seem like such a big mistake, but when it's put into context it becomes quite a bit of a humdinger.

Right from the beginning of the first film, the seed is planted for the whole 'you have your mother's eyes' story line. It's the way in which people recognise Harry when they can't see his scar, it's the main reference to his similarities with his mum and it's the reason Snape stays loyal to Harry - because he can see Lily in his eyes.

So, you'd think that throughout the films, at least one of the directors would have made it so that their eyes were the same. In reality, Harry and his mother always have different coloured eyes.

Once you see it, it's so blatantly obvious.

Lily is portrayed with green eyes, whereas Harry, right from the time he is shown in his cot, through to the end, has blue eyes.

Apparently Daniel Radcliffe was given contact lenses to wear, but he had to keep taking them out because they irritated his eyes. Still, in this day and age with all the technology in films, maybe computerise them? Maybe make his mums eyes blue? There's plenty of ways they could have side stepped the error.

It's not even like there's a valid excuse for it. It's a famous and predominant line throughout the franchise, surely they'd think to make their eyes match?

Again, it doesn't seem major, but when the line 'you have your mother's eyes' is repeated over and over again, you'd expect some kind of attention to detail.

To be honest, whilst we're on the topic of continuity, the girl who plays young Lily in The Deathly Hallows pt 2, doesn't even have the same colour eyes as Lily. Hers are brown.
