American Pie - Moving Straws
This is kind of nit-picky, but in the first scene where the four guys are in the restaraunt, sitting at the booth, the straws in the cups keep moving around as they switch between shots.

In the final lacrosse game, Oz moves in to shoot with his right hand. After they show him shooting, he finished up with is left hand. Pretty talented huh?

well of course the straws are gonna move, straws aren't usually cemented in a cup to where they can't ever move. they might have taken drinks during or between shots to actually move the straws.

in the lacrosse game the people playing (like oz) weren't really them (DUH) but oz did do the end of that scene (where he scored) and the directors didn't notice the slip up until it was too late. And about the straws SO maybe they were drinking i mean i know it sounds wierd but people do that with straws in drinks

I have been looking at slip ups on this web-site for some time now and this is a great example of what I refer to as "an overzealous watcher". This is someone who watches movies looking for stuff to put on the web-site. Congratulations, your "slip up" has wasted like 5 minutes of my time, first I had to be annoyed by readng it, then I had to type this unnecessary response. Let's try and find actual slip ups in movies, ok.

You're right...this is TOTALLY nitpick! But oh well. If the camera kept switching around through different scenes like you said, it would've been very difficult to notice the straws moving...and even if you do have very good eye sight, people DO drink their drinks you know? I mean, how many times, when you've gone to a restaurant, have you made sure your straw stayed in exactly the same place all night? Characters on movies are made to look realistic...therefore, it would've been totally normal for the straws to move a bit!
