She's All That (1999)

Trivia: The real name of the high school seen in this 1999 film is Torrance High. Its campus was also used as the location for the exterior shots of Sunnydale High in Buffy The Vampire Slayer (seasons 1-3), which makes it a clever cameo by Sarah Michelle Gellar (mentioned in the other trivia entry).

Deliberate mistake: At graduation, after Troy is handed the diploma, in the overhead shot the graduates on the left and right stand-up from their seats, then turn and walk towards each other. All their seats simply disappear between shots. Obviously done deliberately for the dance sequence, but a mistake nonetheless.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show mistake picture

Trivia: A life-size bronze statue of Riff Raff dressed in the finale's space suit was erected in Hamilton, New Zealand in 2004, in a tribute to RHPS creator/writer Richard O'Brien. The following is inscribed on the plaque: "It's astounding! Where we stand is the birthplace of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. On this site stood the Embassy Theatre, the home of Hamilton's Late Night Double Feature show, and the barber shop where Richard O'Brien cut hair and daydreamed from 1959 to 1964." WETA Workshops, of Lord of the Rings fame, designed the statue.

Enchanted (2007)

Enchanted mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Giselle, Robert and Morgan are at Bella Notte's, on their table the pizza pan sits atop a chrome stand. In some shots the stand has a chrome cross bar, between its side legs at the base, and in other shots that cross bar is gone. (When setting up for the shots within this scene, the props guys simply turned the stand upside-down sometimes, which resulted in the cross bar either being on the table, or directly under the pizza pan thereby disappearing.)
