Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Audio problem: When Lex enters the military bunker, officer Goram's voice is obviously dubbed and sometimes the audio doesn't match his lips.

Continuity mistake: When Nuclear Man is born, both hands are clenched. He opens and extends the right one first, then the left. A frame later the right hand is slightly clenched again.

Revealing mistake: Right after Lex, disguised as a soldier, orders the launching of the missile, there's a shot of the truck carrying it. The driver is a bad mannequin that looks very much like a scarecrow.

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.

Revealing mistake: After the power plant 'swallows' Nuclear Man, the needle meters have the word AUTODIESEL UXBRIDGE written inside. Uxbridge is the British city where the scene was shot, therefore not the fictional Metropolis.

Visible crew/equipment: Obvious stunt double for Christopher Reeve when lifting the lady to the China Wall; note his thick sideburns, big forehead and skinny build.

Continuity mistake: When Superman catches the falling girl by the Big Wall, his hair is pointed upwards, obviously due to a big amount of hair fix to simulate a moving hair. A frame, later, from another angle, the hairstyle is different, no sign of the hair fix.

Revealing mistake: During the Metropolis destruction, when a cab crashes against the cab in front, the first car's trunk blows out and the FX system (an air-bag similar system) to make this happen flies all over the place.

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).
