Sixteen Candles

Revealing mistake: When Carolyn and the Geek are in the parking lot across from her church, Carolyn gets some help as she climbs over the side and out of the Rolls-Royce - as opposed to using the door. As she makes her way over the side, you can see that she steps onto a step-stool or similar above-ground block before stepping down once more with her next step onto the pavement. There is no such step on the car itself.

Other mistake: The chunk of hair that Ted has in the car is in a ponytail, and much longer than the hair cut off in the door.

Ginny: I really love Rudy. He is totally enamored of me. I mean, I've had men who've loved me before, but not for six months in a row.
