A Shock to the System picture

Revealing mistake: When Graham and Stella are in bed, the camera shows only their arms intertwined as if he's lying on top of her. She's gasping loudly in response to his thrusting, but their arms never move back and forth to reflect this, so it's clear they're not really having sex.

Edward Scissorhands picture

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Kim comes home early from the camping trip, Edward is startled and begins stabbing the water bed, thus causing it to spring many leaks. If you actually look at the bed, it isn't jiggling like a water bed should and the water is just spraying out even in places he isn't stabbing.

My Blue Heaven picture

Revealing mistake: Vinnie places two coin-filled water bottles in the trunk of his car and closes the trunk. As he is walking around the car to get in, the back of the car suddenly sinks down, which by itself indicates a special effect, as springs don't behave that way. But in addition, the rear tires, which would appear flattened if under a heavy load, are completely unaffected by all that "weight."

Ernest Goes To Jail picture

Revealing mistake: There are a couple times you can see the tape that marks where the actors are supposed to stand in the shot. In the beginning, when Bobby and his brother walk in on Ernest trying to get a cleaning machine to work, look on the floor and you will see some tape in the shape of a T. Bobby will move his feet to the T. Also when a criminal begs for Nash's help because he killed someone, and Nash walks forward, look on the floor to see another tape T, and what do ya know, Nash stops right on the T.

Nuns on the Run picture

Revealing mistake: Near the beginning of the film, when Charlie and Brian steal the Honda there is a shot where Brian says "Charlie, slow down, think". By comparing the view outside of the car window in this shot to the surroundings of the previous and subsequent shots, we can see that it was filmed out of sequence, and in a different part of the parking lot.

Death Warrant picture

Revealing mistake: Outside the courthouse, there is a sudden downpour and the rain is coming almost straight down. Cut to a close-up of Van Damme and the rain is suddenly heavier, coming in at much more of an angle, and it's noticeable that Van Damme is not even getting wet. Cut back to the scene where Amanda is walking away, the rain is now back to being more vertical, is lighter and this shot shows that Van Damme's hair has not been touched by a single drop of rain.
