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)

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.

Revealing mistake: In several scenes (e.g. in the deli & in the tunnel, at the end) the ice cubes used to cool Elvis down are obviously not real ice.

Entrapment picture

Revealing mistake: Before entering the Petronas Towers on New Years Eves, Jones emerges form a limousine. In this shot, as in the next few shots, there is a lot of flashing lights from photo cameras. However, when we get a shot form the crowd, these flashes of light appear out of nothing. No one is holding a camera and flashes come from places where no people are standing. Clearly, these flashes are added later.

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.

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.
