Scrooged

Deliberate mistake: In the end scene at the TV set, Scrooge tosses a coin out the window, and the camera follows the coin as it falls in slow motion. The people in the control room also watch this on their monitors. Problem is, this is a live broadcast and filming/watching something live in slow motion is impossible.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film before Frank starts singing, watch the guy to his left (screen right) in the plaid shirt. He goes from being next to him to behind him and jumps around a few times in the scene.
