Police Academy (1984)

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the movie when Mrs. Fackler runs through numerous backyards, including swimming in one part, to stop her husband from joining the Police Academy, her robe is soaking wet. When she gets on top of the station wagon, only her hair is wet, her robe is mysteriously dry.

Factual error: It was mentioned the museum has $3 million in gold bars. At 1978 prices, that is about 280 pounds. Gold is fairly heavy and the size of the bar shown in the film looks like 25 pounds. Assuming about 25 pounds per bar, I counted 134 bars or 3,350 pounds or almost $36 million dollars. I guess a big stack of gold bar looks better than a small stack of 11 bars.

Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the movie when the car goes through the guardrails and is falling down the mountain side, at first the car is seen coming down sideways, driver side facing down. Then it mysteriously changed to be right side up in the next shot when it crashes.
