* On one public-domain DVD of the Franchise/SherlockHolmes movie ''Dressed to Kill', the spine spells the hero's name as "Sherlok Holmes."
** In ''Film/SherlockHolmes'', the opening credits feature a newspaper headline proclaiming "Sherlock Holmes Aides Police." Apparently, Holmes has aides... who are police.

* Lynne Truss wrote that her impetus to write ''Literature/EatsShootsAndLeaves'', a book about punctuation and the misuse thereof, was seeing a poster for the film ''Film/TwoWeeksNotice'' and noticing, to her horror, that there was no apostrophe after the word "weeks".

There is actually a valid psychological reason that this happens as often as it does. Our brains have an inbuilt tendency to automaticallly corect th speling as we read (see?), which makes it easy to read around typos. And when it comes to titles and headlines, we naturally assume that for something as big and important as that, of course somebody else would have caught a big obvious mistake, right? So if they're not careful, or if they're rushing to meet a deadline, even a trained professional copyeditor can overlook the biggest error until it's too late. As well, cover designs tend to be done at the tail end of the production process, so the time crunch can make it that much easier for an error to get through.

* {{Music/Ministry}}'s ''The Land Of Rape And Honey'' was reissued on CD by Wounded Bird Records after being briefly out-of-print. Said reissue lists the title track as "The Land Of Milk And Honey": Given the word that's replaced, this ''could'' be taken as {{bowdlerisation}}, but that seems unlikely since the album title wasn't changed along with it.

* ''Film/{{Idiocracy}}'' features several things spelled incorrectly on covers, signs, people's clothing, etcetera. Justified due to the average IQ of the world's population dropping to about room temperature in Celsius.
