Crazy in Alabama picture

Revealing mistake: Check the scene in slow motion when Peejoe's eye gets damaged by a stone flying off from a lawn mower. The eye doesn't get hurt in the shot when it is hit by the stone, and a close-up shot of the flying stone is reversed, i.e. it's actually flying into and not out of the lawn mower, in an angle where it couldn't be just popping up and down. (00:41:00)

Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai picture

Revealing mistake: When Louie is driving from the mansion, at several times it is obvious that he is not really driving the car. When the car is going straight ahead, he often turns the wheel, and vice versa. This is most obvious just after Vinnie has died, and Louie is asking "Vin? Hey, Vin, you with me over there?". The car is then going through a 90 degree bend in the road, but Louie does not move the steering wheel at all.

Anna and the King picture

Revealing mistake: Tuptim's, the king's new concubine's hair is a very obvious wig. The reason may be that for the second half of the film she had to shave her head and the scenes weren't shot in order. (00:32:00)

Varsity Blues picture

Revealing mistake: In the game where Moxon has the 40-yard Scramble (against the Broncos) Tweeder seems to teleport around the field. He starts out on the far side (waving his hands), then has a block on the far side (as witnessed by the close yard marker), the scene cuts and he's on the near side of the field blocking (Moxon runs behind him), then he's on the far side (as Moxon gets up from diving Tweeder is behind him). Some fancy editing going on there.

The Cider House Rules picture

Revealing mistake: When Homer is sitting outside (on a dock?) reading a letter from Dr. Larch you can see through the envelope and the letter because the white paper is thin. You can tell there are writings on the letter but it is equally obvious that the envelope is blank with no address written on it.
