Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Continuity mistake: In the hotel room, the swimming pool's waters are flat, then when Superman arrives at the terrace behind they are very rippled, then a frame later it cuts to Lois greeting Super and they are totally flat again.

Continuity mistake: When the movie starts, the cosmonaut is standing up straight on the spaceship. A frame later he is laying horizontally plus he is suddenly attached to some sort of tube.

Continuity mistake: After Superman ducks the moon rock, there's a close-up of Nuclear Man's black boot stepping on Superman's boot, yet in the next angle, it's Nuclear Man who's yelling in pain. It should be Superman instead.

Factual error: If the Russian cosmonauts need special suits to survive out to space, so should Lacey when she is taken by Nuclear Man. (00:02:50 - 01:20:20)

Trivia: Near the end of the film, Superman gives a press conference in front of a bluish mirror-glass building which is meant to be the Daily Planet skyscraper in Metropolis (which we all know is New York, sort of). The shot is framed so you can only see the bottom of the building - necessary as it is only about 3 floors high, and is in fact the railway station in Milton keynes, England, about 400 yards from where I work. Even the crowd have a vaguely British look about them - presumably passers-by were recruited and stood there in their own clothes (this would matter less now - Brits look more American than they did in the Eighties).
