Ransom

Deliberate mistake: When the media truck follows Mel, he comes to a traffic light and stops. When he throws away the van's keys, he speeds off from the intersection. Why are the cars at his left not driving? They look like they have parked there and with no drivers present in the car. Weird for a very busy road.

Continuity mistake: When Mel Gibson pulls up at the road crossing, there is a red car in front of him. But in the next shot when all the kids walk across the road, it is gone. Then in the next shot, it returns.
