Continuity mistake: When the landlady shows Judy to her "luxury apartment" note the position of the vertical deadbolt lock affixed to the front door and jamb, but the next morning when Judy leaves for the ZPD, as she unlocks the door the deadbolt lock has moved higher up on the door and jamb (note wallpaper). Additionally, just as Judy opens the door we can see that although the interior deadbolt is affixed higher, its key cylinder on the exterior side is much lower, which makes no sense, but then the deadbolt is back to normal.
Other mistake: Duke is running through the city while dragging Max by his leash. A close-up shows Max being pulled between the bars of a metal fence, but the gap is much too small for Duke to have passed through.
Continuity mistake: Norm, Socrates and the lemmings are walking in the snow after Norm is unsuccessful about telling the others about the houses made by the humans. There is a trail of footprints in the snow left behind Norm from where he was walking. About thirty seconds later, Socrates flies away and the footprints behind Norm have suddenly vanished.
Continuity mistake: In the first scene, the old alien man comes to pick up his spaceship and Ratchet instructs him to "Now, let's fire up that mag booster." The old alien pushes the switch forward to start the mag booster. Later in the movie, Ratchet flips the switch backwards to "engage mag booster" as Clank commands.
Continuity mistake: In an early scene with the Scrat on board the alien space ship, he accidentally increases the artificial gravity, and there is a control panel indicator with the word "GRAVITY" in English. In a later scene when the ship is out of control and a danger warning flashes in front of him, it's written in an alien language.
New this month Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the movie, the principal puts on his hat which turns his hair green. But you can see the green paint has already been applied before he puts his hat on.
Plot hole: There's no way that Eddie and Nana left the flooded theater without getting a single drop of water on them. The water flooded up to the ceiling and there's no other way to exit besides the front doors, and Moon's secret exit, which also floods. They do not leave through either way.
Continuity mistake: As Moana lands her boat on the island's shore, Hei Hei the chicken falls onto the sand and starts to walk into the water. An ocean wave pushes him back toward the shore. In the long shot, several people are approaching the boat but the chicken has vanished.
