Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home picture

Other mistake: After they take off from California, Kirk gives a heading to Alaska. He then tells Sulu "full impulse power", and Sulu says "aye, ETA 12 minutes." Full impulse is 1/4 the speed of light. No way they would use speeds like that to go a few thousand miles.

Back to School picture

Other mistake: After his wife has a party at their house, Thorton Melon (Dangerfield) decides to have a swim in his pool. The camera shows Melon as he is about to dive into the pool from the edge. The camera cuts away and a much "thinner" Melon is seen doing a flip into the water. Watch carefully as the "thinner" man makes his dive. You can clearly see his hairpiece fly off the top of his head.

Night of the Creeps picture

Other mistake: There is a scene at the beginning of the movie where the two main male leads are walking near a frat house having a party. The shot with the error starts on a frat banner and then pans down and across to the female lead (Jill Whitlow) and stops with her in the center of the screen. At this point, her legs are transparent.

Jumping Jack Flash picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Terry is at the computer, and Jim Belushi's character surprises her while pretending to be a Sperry repairman, they keep turning the monitor on and off. But the last time you hear a beep, which is supposed to be Terry turning off the monitor, her hand is nowhere near where the button would be. They obviously added the sound effect later.

A Fine Mess picture

Other mistake: When Turnip runs off with a horse suppository up his hindquarters, the policemen shoot at him being all in a straight line with each other - in fact it really looks like they should be shooting at each other if those guns were real. (01:05:55)

Chopping Mall picture

Other mistake: Walter Paisley is cleaning the floor and encounters the first robot. The whole reason the robots are patrolling at this point is that the shopping centre is supposedly closed to customers, as it is nighttime. However in this scene you can see quite a few people shopping on the upper tier of the mall above Paisley.
