The Terminal
The Terminal mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Viktor and Amelia are having dinner in the terminal, Enrique fills her glass very full. However, in the shots with only Amelia, the wine level changes to be significantly lower, though she never touches the glass. (01:26:00)

Revealing mistake: About 30 seconds into the movie, when the camera is panning down the flight status board, the letters are flipping through to form the correct words. However, the board is digitally animated, and some of the sequences of letters scrolling (such as one square going from L to M to N) loop without making any sense, like in the line above the yellow "The /Terminal" (U, V, W, U, V, W, U, V, W.). (00:00:30)

Joe Mulroy: You better be careful. You know those flight attendants ain't like regular women, Viktor. They're flying back and forth between all those time-zones kinda messes with their biological clock or something. Always ready for sex. Why do you think they can't stop smiling?
