Trading Places (1983)

Corrected entry: When Winthorpe tries shooting himself in the head and the gun fails to discharge a bullet, he tosses the gun aside. The sound the gun makes when it fires and hits is a very poor sound effect and could not have fit realistically into that scene.

Correction: Wrong. It is completely realistic. What is not realistic is the sound effects normally used for gunshots in the movies - real guns sound nothing like they do on the screen. The sound effect here sounds like a live recording of a real (blank) shot.
