Saturday Night Fever

Deliberate mistake: The same group of people wearing the same clothes, including a dancer and bartender, are shown sitting around a bar on two different disco nights. On the first disco night we see them when Tony leaves the bar to go outside after being informed by Joey, what Double J is doing in the car. We see these people again at the start of the second disco night, both nights when we see them, the song "If I Can't Have You" is being played. (00:21:20 - 00:56:30)

Continuity mistake: In the beginning sequence of the movie, as John Travolta is walking down the street, he looks at two girls whom he apparently thinks are cute. In the scene with the second girl, whom he stands in front of while attempting to make a pass at, the heavy-set female extra behind this girl, who is wearing a white shirt and carrying a bag with a tomato on it, first is walking behind the girl in the same direction she is going (coming toward Travolta), then in the next shot is seen walking away from Travolta and the girl, and then in the next shot is back to her original position and is walking behind the girl again.
