Demolition Man

Other mistake: During the scene where Phoenix is questioning the leader of the future society in his office, he says at least one word (hell) that he should have been fined for, and isn't. We see that there is a ticket printer in the room in a later scene, when Savage sets it off during his own confrontation. (01:06:50)

Other mistake: It seems curious that the museum, even in the weapons display, would have functional firearms and LIVE munitions of any sort, even if no one would be interested in ever taking and using them.

Other mistake: When Simon Phoenix kicks through the windshield of the police car during his first fight with the SAPD, the windshield easily breaks into several large segments, as opposed to spider-webbing like real windshields made from safety glass do. Glass that would completely shatter and collapse into the car from a simple kick would be completely unsafe and illogical for a society that's supposed to be more technologically advanced than ours.

Other mistake: As Phoenix starts to say, "Spartan? John Spartan? They'll let anyone into this century," you can see the podium Phoenix is ducking behind shift to one side unnaturally, indicating an editing error.

Other mistake: The Verbal Morality Code seems to be applied in an almost haphazard fashion. Several times throughout the movie, both Spartan and Phoenix swear, and do so near an area where they should be vocally reminded of breaking the code, in fact have been previously reminded, and in spite of them not moving from that location are not warned again in the face of repeated swearing.

Mistakes

When Spartan and Huxley arrive at the cryogenics place to battle Phoenix and what remains of his gang, Phoenix sees them on the monitor walking into the building and you see Spartan on the left and Huxley on the right. The camera angle changes to an inside view and Spartan is now on the right.
