The Usual Suspects mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the cop car's being hijacked, a sledgehammer's slammed down right in the centre of the windscreen. A second later, a shot from inside the car shows the impact point as down in the bottom left corner. (00:31:40)

The Usual Suspects mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Right before they rob the police car, a Boeing 747 (four engines) is seen in shots of the plane coming into land. When the plane is shown from behind, it is a Boeing 767, with only two engines and fewer main landing gears. (00:30:10)

As Good As It Gets mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Simon has a rack of pool balls on his coffee table. When Melvin is telling Simon about the bacon, the 2 ball (solid blue) is near the telephone. In the next shot, the dog jumps up to get the bacon and now the 3 ball (solid red) is near the phone. (01:01:20)

Continuity mistake: When we see Melvin's bedroom, when Simon is looking for the dog, the shelf above his bed is half filled with books and bottles of water. By the end of the phonecall with Carol, the shelf is completely filled. (01:58:15 - 02:01:20)

Killing Me Softly mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Alice and Adam get in the cab outside the bookshop, the number on the back of the taxi is 90167, there are no other markings on the back and the Y on the number plate has a long stalk. When they're pulling away from some traffic lights later, the number has changed to '14290', there are the words "fairaway 95" on the back and the 'Y' has a small stalk. Note that, since the number plate (K651EYW) stays the same, for at least one of the shots they were driving a car around London with the wrong plates on. (00:08:30 - 00:09:25)
