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.

Continuity mistake: When the family is getting into the car to go to the wedding one grandmother says to the other "let me in". The grandmother gets out to let the other grandmother in but the first grandmother never gets back in the car, she just pretends to. You can see her hiding behind the cars as it backs down the drive. Both grandmothers are in the car when they see Long Duk Dong on the lawn.
