The Matrix picture

Character mistake: When Morpheus is explaining to Neo the reason the Matrix exists, he states that a human being gives off 25,000 BTUs of body heat to help power it - this is just not true. Even human beings that are running a marathon can't give off that much heat, and the humans in the Matrix are all lying down, not moving.

The Sixth Sense picture

Character mistake: When Cole and his mother are stuck in traffic due to an pedestrian accident, a cop ignites a flare to place on the road by the car that hit the pedestrian. The police were already on scene, traffic was gridlocked up and down the street, nothing was moving, and he places the flare about 2 feet in front of the car - a move that is unsafe (potential fuel leak) and unnecessary. It would never be done on a city street, and never in heavy traffic. (01:27:25)
