Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Continuity mistake: At the Great Wall of China, Nuclear Man points his hands forward and explodes the wall in front. As of then, there's no continuity between the position of his hands and the location of the places exploding.

Continuity mistake: When Lenny leads his car with the cops in, the car is facing a very short road ending in a small mount of rocks. The following wider angle shows a very wide open space with grass and a huge cliff.

Visible crew/equipment: Nuclear Man descends close to the statue of liberty to fight Superman. For a brief glimpse his supporting wires are seen.

Revealing mistake: It is way too obvious that when Luthor holds the dollar bill, his arm and hand have been replaced by a robotic prop. His arm manages to move without involving all the bones connected to the shoulder and the back.

Revealing mistake: While Superman carries the Statue, there's a close shot of Nuclear Man showing his fingernails. The movie behind is playing the wrong way, and gives the sensation that Nuclear Man is flying backwards.

Revealing mistake: When Superman is wounded on the neck, and when the italian villagers are saved, the same male falsetto voice is used to add a (crappy and out-of-sync) "Oooh!" and "Aaaah!".

Revealing mistake: The close shot of people panicking when the Statue is about to crash against the pavement shows an old woman with a red wool hat and a white scarf. Many scenes later, when Nuclear Man lands on Metropolis, the same lady is seen, wearing the same clothes.

Continuity mistake: Seen from inside the train-driver's seat, the tunnel is darker and with lights on both sides, but a shot of the tunnel alone shows it brighter and with no lights on the left side. Then it cuts back to the previous angle and everything changes back.

Continuity mistake: Nuclear Man lands in Metropolis and the cab driver on the left swaps several times from having his arm inside the car in the wide angles, to outside the cab's window in the close-ups.

Continuity mistake: When Mrs. Warfield waits for Clark in her office, there's a white sculpture on the table. From the back it's away from a brown object, from the front it's very close to it.

Revealing mistake: When in space, Superman punches Nuclear Man on the back, he turns around and his face has turned blurry and black, but his body keeps the same colour. In the immediate close-up the face's colour is fixed.

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).
