Enemy of the State

Visible crew/equipment: When Will Smith and Gene Hackman are fleeing the fortress, Will shoots at the pursuing truck with the shotgun, causing it to flip. As it lands on its top, the tube used to launch the pole that flipped it is visible.

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.
