Hoffa

Revealing mistake: Very poor diopter work on the Las Vegas stage: the audience is "split in half", one part very blurry behind DeVito's head, and the other half crisp and clear.

Revealing mistake: Several times in the movie you can see really poor backdrop work, such as the stars in the opening scene, the hunting scene in the woods, the Capital building from Hoffa's office and from Kennedy's office, the truck line towards the prison, and a few others.

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when the hitman walks out of the diner, the camera focuses on the car in the parking lot, cuts back to the hitman, then cuts back to the car. The problem is the shadows in the first shot of the car are about half a meter long, but a few seconds later they are two meters long. Obviously both takes of the car were taken hours apart.
