Shallow Hal

Visible crew/equipment: When Hal goes outside after his special "seminar" in the elevator with Tony Robbins, he hails a taxi and walks over to open the door when he notices that a woman is also opening the door. As the shot pans back from the taxi and he is apologizing to her, you can clearly see a boom microphone reflected in the triangular window, moving back and forth. (00:17:00)

Visible crew/equipment: When Jack Black and Jason Alexander are in the gym, Alexander talks about cankles. Watch the upper left hand part of the screen. The boom mic dips into the shot at least twice.

Continuity mistake: When Hal's co-workers bring him a cake for his promotion, Rosemary takes a slice out for herself. They change shots a couple times, and the size of the piece missing from the cake changes several times, and the layers of the cake change as well.
