Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers - Not so Graceful Elf
In the epic running scene where Gimli, Aragorn & Legolas are tracking down the Uruk-hai who nabbed Merry and Pippen, if you watch closely, about half-way through as the camera pans left (I think, could have been right) you can see Legolas stumble over some rocks before quickly continuing running as though nothing happened. I know this may sound trivial at first but after noticing it the first time, I always see it and can't help but laugh at the irony.
Visual Proof! See the examples below and post your pictures too.

I looked for that to. It does look like Legolas trips, but then I zoomed in and watched it. If you're talking about what I think you are, Legolas is really stopping and waving to Gimli to get him to hurry. They should have made it more obvious, though.

The thing is that tripping is something that never happens to the Elves. In the books Tolkien says they walk like they would glide, like they are weightless, e.g. the part at the Caradhras - Legolas is walking over sixfeet-deep snow with no problems.

Well he really was tripping, as we all did many times, but watching the hot Orlando tripping makes me laugh...

Haven't you ever tripped before??? Besides, each scene that they shoot costs a lot of money, so I don't think they thought it was worth wasting all that time and money to reshoot the scene just because he tripped a little bit. Plus, who cares??? Orlando Bloom is hot!!!! Lol!! :D
