Thank You for Smoking

Continuity mistake: In the final dinner meeting of the Merchants of Death (MOD Squad),the gun lobbyist gets a piece of pie with cheese on it, takes a small bite; then the alcohol lobbyist attacks it with her fork for a bite, pulling all the cheese off and toppling the little American flag in it. In the next shot of Bobby eating, and a closeup of the dessert, all the cheese is back on it and the flag is upright again.

Continuity mistake: During the Subcommittee Hearing scene, the person sitting behind Nick Naylor, on his left, changes repeatedly between shots: Right before he is asked to come forward, the chair is occupied by a woman in a blue shirt. When he sits down, a man is seated there. Immediately after one of the senators asks, "What about the children?", the woman is back - but only for a few seconds.
