Clue

Deliberate mistake: The same footage of Ms. Scarlet screaming when the cook falls out of the freezer is used when Wadsworth falls out of the freezer. (Note the cigarette.)

Deliberate mistake: When they are bringing the Cook's body into the study, it's obvious the Cook is actually the Cook's double because she is much thinner and takes up less space in the doorway. (00:34:40)

Casual Person

Deliberate mistake: When Mrs. White is screaming after the power cut, she then says "Help me!" multiple times. It's obvious the "Help me!" lines are just a recording played over and over. (01:03:15)

Casual Person

Deliberate mistake: When the chandelier smashes after Colonel Mustard and Miss Scarlet are freed from the lounge and at the end of the first ending, the light level doesn't even go down. (00:53:15 - 01:20:30)

Casual Person

Deliberate mistake: Wadsworth was explaining how Miss Scarlet killed the cop. It then showed her killing him. You can see that she stopped the lead pipe behind his head so it wouldn't show a violent and bloody death.

Wadsworth: The game's up, Scarlet. There are no more bullets left in that gun.
Miss Scarlet: Oh come on, you don't think I'm going to fall for that old trick.
Wadsworth: It's not a trick. There was one shot at Mr. Boddy in the study, two at the chandelier, two at the lounge door, and one at the singing telegram.
Miss Scarlet: That's not six.
Wadsworth: One plus two plus two plus one.
Miss Scarlet: Uh-uh. There was only one shot that got the chandelier, so that's one plus two plus ONE plus one.
Wadsworth: Even if you were right, that would be one plus one plus two plus one, not one plus two plus one plus one.
Miss Scarlet: Okay, fine. One plus two plus one...SHUT UP! Point is, there's one bullet left in this gun, and guess who's going to get it!
