Cruel Intentions picture

Revealing mistake: In the swimming pool scene between Annette and Sebastian, a positioning mark can be seen quite clearly on the floor. [The swimming pool used was freezing cold, about 40 degrees, so Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon were freezing (look close and you can see Ryan shivering), and so were the camera crew, that they didn't repeat the shot, so the positioning mark was left in.] (00:28:05)

October Sky picture

Revealing mistake: When Homer placed the rocket on his fence and lit it his friend asked "Should we get behind somethin'?" That's when the rocket explodes. When you see them fly back you don't need to slow motion it because you can clearly see the wires attached to their backs.

Interceptors picture

Revealing mistake: When the Interceptor team flies in their cargo plane to Mexico to investigate the UFO crash, several shots filmed from the front show the six of them all in the cockpit (not in the body of the plane.) They're seated as they might be in a car, three across, front and back. The window of the cockpit looks remarkably similar to a station wagon windshield, down to the large rectangular front windshield, and even the rear view mirror is in place.

Plunkett & Macleane picture

Revealing mistake: When Plunkett and Macleane emerge from prison they walk through a gap between a woman cooking and a circle of people around some men fighting, Macleane first, followed by Plunkett. As Plunkett passes through the gap he kicks a basket over and a blue gas cylinder with an orange pipe rolls out from underneath.

In Dreams picture

Revealing mistake: When Claire jumps down into the silo filled with apples, the whole top layer of apples bounces, which indicates that there is only a thin layer of apples instead of apples all of the way down. Soft material would have been under the apples during filming. Rotting apples wouldn't have that sort of give normally.

Dead or Alive picture

Revealing mistake: When the man accidentally coats his hand in breading and cooks it in the boiling oil, you can tell his hand has not been damaged at all. The breading on the outside is just a little cooked, but his skin underneath seems perfect.

Three Kings picture

Revealing mistake: When they find the paper map sticking out the Iraqi soldier's bottom it is neatly rolled up and straight. One should imagine it being quite crumpled after having spent some time in this particular hiding place. (00:08:00)

The Boondock Saints picture

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Rocco kills the two 'goodfellas' in the restaurant, he hides his gun by holding the gun behind his coat. Before the shot switches, you see the gun go off, yet the hammer is down the entire time. The revolver could have been single or double action, but the hammer would still have to have gone back. It is easier to see the gun go off on the NC-17 version or on the deleted scene, but you do see the flash on the R version.
