Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Continuity mistake: When Rooney gets out of his car and walks up to Ferris' front door his jacket is unbuttoned, when he gets to the door it is buttoned.

Continuity mistake: After Ferris picks up Sloan from school in the Ferrari, he is seen speeding off towards the end of the parking lot (there's an exit and then a few more stalls before the end of the lot). He gets into 2nd gear before it cuts back to a shot of Mr. Rooney. As we see Rooney's face, we hear the Ferrari running through 2nd gear and into 3rd. This is impossible as they would've had to slow down to make the exit or they would've run off the end of the lot.

Plot hole: When Jeannie encounters Mr. Rooney at her house, she attacks him and calls the police. Later, the police pick her up for filing a false report. Why? Surely they would've seen signs of an intruder such as a dropped wallet on the floor and footprints in the mud right next to the house.

Continuity mistake: Ferris steps out of bed and raises his arms in an 11 O'clock position to open the blinds. From the angle behind the arms are raised in a 3 O'clock position.

Continuity mistake: When the movie starts, Ferris's in bed, his fringe all over his forehead. A frame later it's brushed sideways.

Ferris: Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
