Animal House

Audio problem: When D-Day, Bluto and Flounder are running out of Wormer's office after the horse died, there is a sound effect of them screaming as they flee the scene. This exact same sound effect is used when the boys run out of the all-black bar, except Bluto and D-Day weren't there; it was Flounder, Kroger and Boon. (00:30:40 - 01:17:15)

Audio problem: At the bar after the tall black man asks to dance with the boys' dates, he lifts the booth table up off the floor. There's a sound like it's being forcibly ripped out of the floor, yet the table has a round bottom with no visible bolts or screws. While it may have been heavy, it wasn't secured to the floor.

Audio problem: When Bluto is using the ladder to look in the sorority house, the ladder gives a clanging sound like an aluminum extension ladder. The ladder Bluto is using is a single frame wooden ladder which wouldn't make any clanging sounds at all.

Trivia: During the scene where John Belushi is sneaking around, you see him slip and then get back up. The slip was accidental but the film makers left it in the movie.

More trivia for Animal House

Question: Why didn't the mayor try and have the Deltas arrested for both the mayhem they caused at the parade and that one of them may have had fun with his underaged daughter? Obviously the audience knows the member didn't but the mayor doesn't.

Answer: There's no indication that the Deltas didn't face legal ramifications from their actions at the parade, nor that Pinto didn't get in trouble (when we last see him, he's literally being chased by the mayor). The film ends at that point and, although the film provides title cards telling us what happened to the characters far in the future, we don't see the immediate aftermath.
