Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Revealing mistake: When Nuclear Man flies through the ceiling for the first time, the first glass he crashes into is noticeably different than the others surrounding it, revealing it's a prop.

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.

Suggested correction: The RT-2PM "Topol" nuclear missile was carried on a MAZ-7917 mobile launcher - essentially, a huge truck - from which it was launched. The truck was not damaged by the rocket exhaust.

That's exactly my point. Plus, given that the truck is a blatant miniature prop.

Other mistake: When Lenny has the prison guards locked in the car and is putting the top up, the steering wheel is spinning but the front wheels aren't moving. The amount of revolutions of the steering wheel is mechanically impossible also.

Lex Luthor: Lenny, I've always considered you the Dutch Elm disease in my family tree.

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).
