Beetlejuice

Other mistake: When Adam's headless body runs into the hallway to go shut the attic door, you can see a reflection of his body when he crashes into the banister. Ghosts don't have reflections, as seen in the beginning.

Other mistake: If the Maitlands cannot be seen in a reflection being ghosts, then Lydia would not have seen them in the attic window in her camera, as that uses a mirror to reflect the image through the viewfinder.

Other mistake: When Adam and Barbara have their sheets on, trying to scare the mother, they walk out in failure and Lydia takes pictures of the ghosts - polaroid photos fall out (too quickly) and Lydia picks up one which is already developed - they take longer. (00:39:25)

Revealing mistake: Adam and Barbara aren't supposed to have reflections, but when they enter the recreation of their home (just before they meet Juno), their reflections are shown perfectly in the glass display case that holds Delia's sculptures, behind them. (00:32:55)
