Enemy of the State

Character mistake: After the Congressman is killed, the killer dumps pills on the floor of the car. Then the car is then rolled into the river. At about 15:07 the news reporter mentions that the Congressman's heart pills were found in his lap. This would be impossible because the pills and bottle would float and the pills would dissolve in the water. (00:03:45 - 00:15:05)

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film, after the shootout, there's a shot with the camera zooming in on a newspaper at Will Smith's front door. If you pause it right once the headline fills the top of the screen, you'll notice all the paragraphs are just repeated, word for word. Additionally the word "received" is misspelled.

Trivia: During the brief occasional shots of the satellite you can hear Morse code. The code translates as CQ, which is amateur radio speak for 'is anybody there?' - hardly spy stuff.
