Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Factual error: When Nuclear Man takes the publisher of the newspaper out into space. Humans cannot breathe in outer space. Even if they could, wouldn't she burn up in re-entry? It can't be Superman's powers are transferred to someone he's touching, otherwise in the second film he could never have crushed General Zod's hand...

Factual error: If the Russian cosmonauts need special suits to survive out to space, so should Lacey when she is taken by Nuclear Man.

Factual error: When the villain takes the reporter into space (the earth is just a circle off in the distance), then weakens and lets go of her, not only does she start to fall, she starts to fall straight down and has to hang onto him. (Oddly enough, he's not falling). Did somebody inject normal earth gravity into mid-space?

Factual error: When Superman addresses the UN, the delegate presumably representing the United Kingdom appears behind an "England" sign - "England" is not an international entity represented at the UN, while the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is.

Factual error: Superman and Nuclear Man fly around the world fighting at incredible speed. Everywhere they go, including places as widely spread as New York and China, it's daytime.

Factual error: When Nuclear Man isn't receiving daylight he "dies", yet when he dives into the volcano he manages to come out as if nothing happened.

Factual error: Superman places the nuclear missiles in the giant disposable bag in space, throws them at the sun, and the bag burns up when it hits the sun. In reality, the bag would have burned up long before hitting the sun.

Casual Person

Factual error: At the beginning of the movie we're told that the Statue of Liberty is in Metropolis. However, the subway billboard states that it's in New York.

Factual error: The Russians launch a missile which stands upright on a truck. The energy needed to send it beyond the atmosphere would need such a huge fire blast that it would've caused a big explosion when in contact with the truck's petrol deposit.

Mistakes

When Superman and the super villain are fighting on the moon, when Superman flies in and lands at the beginning of the fight, you can see the cables that are suspending him.

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).
