Election

Visible crew/equipment: When Paul and Lisa are in Mr. McAllister's office complaining about a conflict of interest, Lisa says, "She's just doing this to get back at me," and you can see the shadow of the boom mic on the ceiling swing back and forth.

Visible crew/equipment: When Walt the principal announces over the speaker that Tammy Metzler is out of the running, the set's light reflection is cast on the window behind him.

Continuity mistake: When Jim is introducing Paul at the elections assembly, we first see his right hand on the microphone and his left hand on the microphone stand. They it cuts to a close up but now his left hand is on his lap.

Trivia: Near the end of the movie after Mr McAllister gets fired and we see full-screen shots of newspaper articles detailing the election scandal, if you pause the film at the third newspaper article (with the headline 'Carver Student Plans Lawsuit') and read it, you'll see that the director had a bit of fun with the viewing audience by inserting a couple of paragraphs into the middle of the story: 'If you've paused the film in order to read this entire article, your time would be better spent renting "Citizen Ruth" from your local video store. Do you know how hard and unthankful (?) a task it is to write these fake few stories for newspaper movie pages? I've got better things to do.'
