In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, you can visibly see a cameraman in the shot during Harry and Draco’s dueling scene.

In Hitch, Will Smith’s character has an allergic reaction, and only one side of his face swells up. Later on in the night, the swelling switches to the opposite side.

In Soul Surfer, they wrapped green tape around AnnaSophia Robb’s arm to digitally remove it from the movie, but in the trailer you can see where they forgot to edit it out.

In Ocean’s Eleven, Brad Pitt’s shrimp cocktail container changes from a glass to a plate, and then back to a glass again.

Jurassic Park: The Helping Hand

Fans of Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park likely remember the scene in the film in which giant velociraptors chase Lex and Tim Murphy through the kitchen.
