Footloose

Continuity mistake: During the "chicken race" there is a wide shot showing both tractors with a few meters between them approaching each other very quickly. Then Ren's shoelace gets caught, he tries to jump, and Chuck jumps off his tractor several seconds later. With the speed shown in the wide shot, the two tractors would have collided in an eye-blink. (00:29:05)
