National Lampoon's Vacation

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, when Clark says he's not falling for the salesman tricks, Clark and Rusty start to walk back to their old car. Before the next shot, you can see Rusty walk past the back of the car and almost make the turn to the passenger side of the car. In the next shot, you see Clark trying to open the door while Rusty just starts walking up to the driver side of the car.

Continuity mistake: When Christy Brinkley appears in the Ferrari and Beverly D'Angelo is asleep in the car, Beverly's head is facing towards Chevy Chase. When they go to a shot of Chevy, Beverly's head is facing the other way. This continues back and forth throughout the entire scene, although she moves some.

Continuity mistake: When the officer stops Clark about the leash, Clark gets out of the car and is talking to the officer. If you look into the car when they show Clark nobody is in the car, but Aunt Edna, Ellen, Audrey, and Rusty are all on the vacation.

Continuity mistake: When they are on the looping roller coaster, they come to a point where it is a long drop in to the loop. However, in the next shots of Clark and the security guard, the coaster is going round a curve, and in the next shot it is back on the straight drop.

Continuity mistake: When the family finally makes it to Wally World, they park at the back of the lot with the car facing the park. As they pull up the shadow of the car is on the passenger side (right side), however only moments later as the family is running toward the entrance their shadows are on their left. If you look closely you can see that they are running from the front of the car, and the shadows should still be to the right.
