This is Spinal Tap

Continuity mistake: At the Record Label party, where the band meets Bobbi Fleckman, Nigel is wearing a coat. In another shot where the band meets Sir Dennis Eaton Hogg at the same party Nigel has no coat and different shirt.

Factual error: In the scene where Derek Smalls is having trouble with the airport security the gate only beeps when he walks 'in'. The gate would beep no matter what way he walked through it.

Continuity mistake: While the band is performing Stonehenge, the windscreen on Nigel's microphone appears and disappears a couple of times.

Martin: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?
Nigel: Exactly.
Martin: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?
Nigel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?
Martin: I don't know.
Nigel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Martin: Put it up to eleven.
Nigel: Elevn. Exactly. One louder.
Martin: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?
[Pause.]
Nigel: These go to eleven.
