Caddyshack

Revealing mistake: When Carl is caddying for the priest during the bad weather, the wind is so strong that it is almost blowing them over but the trees are not moving in the background.

Revealing mistake: Lesser caddies sneaking around the golf course are seen with the print of their T-shirt in reverse (mirror) image, suggesting a decision by the director (Harold Ramis) to influence the on-screen direction of movement.

Revealing mistake: During the opening credits, the gopher is tunneling under the grass and plowing it up as he goes.

Trivia: The scene where Ty is practicing late at night before the big game and "plays thru" at Carl's place was actually filmed after the movie had already wrapped and was largely improvised. The film makers thought a scene with Chevy Chase, who had left Saturday Night Live after the first season, and Bill Murray, who had replaced Chase in the second season, would be a nice comic touch, so they added one (literally) at the last minute.
