Hairspray

Audio problem: When Corny introduces himself at the auto show, the audio is not in sync with his lips.

Factual error: Although the film is set in 1962, it uses the song "You Don't Own Me" which wasn't released until 1963 (and didn't become a big hit until 1964).

Continuity mistake: During the "Limbo Rock" segment, the scene changes from shots of the council members dancing at Tilted Acres to Penny and Tracey's parents watching it on TV. The queue of the council members waiting in line to go under the pole changes between shots.
