THREE (two subtle)!
The subtle scene in the 'Scary Movie' with 'Signs' where the police officer's hat gets slightly bigger in each scene.
Then in the awful movie, 'Idiocracy' where the hospital sign is messed up because they used a font that was too big for the name to fit on the building.
3. Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus. That whole movie was a scene.

This movie is well made, but I didn't enjoy it very much.
The movie itself is very well written. The Oliver (the boy), St. Vincent (the neighbor), and Daka (the dancer) are all cast perfectly and their characters are both interesting and multidimensional.
Oliver (the boy) is shown to be fairly mature and self sufficient, and is then given a baby sitter. The friendship between the Oliver and his bully feels completely contrived, and does not make much sense. Maggie (Oliver's mom) shown many times, but her character feels underdeveloped.
The movie is always progressing, and each scene contributes to the movie as a whole, but it doesn't feel like it while it's happening. It feels very slow. I likely would not have finished it had I been watching it for free on television. I also do not plan to ever re-watch this movie.
Finally, the genre is listed as comedy, but it plays more like a drama with comedy on the side.
