Visible crew/equipment: In the scene during the American bandstand, at the end of the song when the teacher is dancing in front of the band members, the crews can be seen. The dressing and the hair doesn't match Grease era at all, and someone is sitting on a director's chair as well. (01:06:20)

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where they are singing Grease Lighting - the part when the fuzzy dice float to Kenickie - after he takes them "out of the air" and swings them around, then lets them fly - if you look close to his head you can see the white string they were attached to when they were "floating".

Revealing mistake: In the soda shop, the waitress turns off the lights with her elbow because her hands are full, but she misses the light switch by 6 inches. (00:55:10)
