Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century - Artificial Gravity?
Go to the end of the movie, when Zenon is trying to figure out the code to enter to stop the virus from eating away at the computers. When she enters the right one, the computers stop for a few seconds, and they show the Space Station from outside; the station stops rotating, thus the artificial gravity stops, and they should float. But in the next scene, they show everyone still standing, as if there was gravity. If the rotation that brings gravity is shut down, how can they still be standing as if there WAS gravity? Whoops!

The real slip-up here isn't that the people didn't float, it is that the station stopped moving so quickly. If you had a space station spinning in space and the computer crashed, the rockets firing to create the spin needed to create the artificial gravity would turn off, NOT reverse, therefore the station wouldn't come to a halt instantly, it would slowly lose it's spin taking days or even weeks to lose all the spin for the station to come to a complete halt.

Well, yeah, I guess thats true, but you can't exactly give everyone wires so they just "fly" and anyway. I don't think many people will notice that one.
