Superman II

Deliberate mistake: The kid who falls into Niagara Falls spends 28 seconds falling before Superman catches him. Niagara Falls is 51 meters in total height. Considering how fast something falls, the kid should have hit the water long before Superman ever entered the scene. (00:39:30 - 00:40:00)

Casual Person

Deliberate mistake: When the villains rampage the White House, the flag's base remains on the ceiling, and the flag pole falls inside the house. So the final scene with Superman carrying the flag and its base as if it had been previously stolen or destroyed, is nonsensical, but it looks very patriotic indeed.

Deliberate mistake: Luthor and Teschmaker visit the North Pole protecting themselves against the cold. Lois manages to wander around with a mere, but sexy, shirt.

Revealing mistake: In the final scene, Superman is returning the White House's flag to its rightful place, flying over the fountain on the lawn...which is frozen solid in place. Obviously a photo backdrop.
