Lethal Weapon 2

Other mistake: When the car blasts out the container, the pallets which the money was on, don't come out with the money.

Bungleboy

Other mistake: When Riggs kills the guy who murdered his wife by dropping that cargo crate on him it's obvious the crate has no bottom and it falls around him, not least because the body's height doesn't change as the crate falls, there's no sign of impact or crushing, he just stays perfectly upright as it hits the ground.

Suggested correction: This is simply not a mistake - we obviously know that the filmmakers didn't really crush an actor, but there's no visible clue of the SFX "deception."

ReRyRo

Other mistake: During the "high speed chase," Murtaugh stops the car so that Leo can retrieve Riggs' dropped gun from the side of the road. He picks it up and runs back to the car. Murtaugh says, "Give me that," and takes the gun from Leo. But, Murtaugh, being in the driver's seat, wouldn't be able to reach over the passenger seat and a foot or so outside of the car to grab the gun from Leo. It looks like someone in the passenger's seat just reached out and grabbed it.

Deliberate mistake: The way diplomatic immunity is depicted in the movie is extremely inaccurate. While technically a sufficiently ranking diplomat could perform the acts shown in the movie without being subject to arrest, their home government would be requested to turn the diplomats over for trial, or the diplomat would be declared persona non grata and expelled from the country. A drug smuggling ring and murdering multiple policemen is far, far more serious than actual crimes that diplomats have been expelled (or handed over for trial) for in the real world. Additionally, the consul general and his officers would not be considered diplomats. They would only have limited consular immunity with regards to "official acts" in the course of consular business.
