Zombieland (2009)

Revealing mistake: When the eye doctor becomes hypnotized to put the wrong drops in her own eyes, if you watch the bottle nothing ever comes out of it that could cause her to scream.

Revealing mistake: When the pickup truck stops short and the Creeper goes through the cab, the truck flips over frontwards. If you look near the rear axle when it flips over you can see the puff of white smoke and the cylinder that helped to flip the truck.

Continuity mistake: When Bucky jumps on the hood of the bus to get back in, the Creeper flies from in front of the moon towards the bus causing all the kids to run away. Bucky can still be seen staying put on the hood when they run - however in the next shot of all the kids running you see him at the front of the pack which would have not been possible given that he didn't run right away.

Suggested correction: You're close. They did use a stunt double but you don't see the double "scrambling off." The stunt double is barefoot and the person you see clearing the shot is wearing shoes. Most likely a stage hand helping the stunt double with the landing.

The Hangover (2009)

Continuity mistake: When the guys are sitting down for breakfast, it is clear that in some of the far away shots during that scene "Carlos" is not the same baby as the shape of the baby's eyes are different.
