Plot hole: Prior to the final show, when the horsemen are performing separately at different locations in London. [Scene X] Jack is busy with his card swap trick. While others are doing their tricks too, [Scene Y] McKinney is believed to be tricked once again by his face sharing brother at another location... Dylan gets a call and then he calls everyone to wrap up and meet somewhere. [Scene Z] Jack also wraps up and leaves the place... OK. Later after the expose in final show McKinney tells the story about how Jack successfully hypnotized his brother [in the Scene Y]. How could Jack be at two different locations at the same time? He was performing somewhere else when he did hypnotism at another location and then wraps up his trick back where he started.
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.
New this month Continuity mistake: After Dory reads the wall map while she's in the glass carafe, when Hank hides behind the rolling cabinet there's a long shot of the corridor with him at the far wall, then in the next shot from behind Hank a drinking fountain has suddenly appeared on the wall to the left between two pictures.
Factual error: Women's stockings had seams in 1944. When people are dancing at the party in Bayfield's apartment, the backs of women's legs appear in enough shots to show that their stockings, anachronistically, are seamless.
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: At the end of the movie, when Alice grabs Dave and starts kissing him on the bench, she is barefoot and doesn't have any shoes on. A second later, in the next shot, she has flip flops on. Then the shot changes again and she is once again barefoot, without any shoes on.
Continuity mistake: When April changes into a school girl's outfit to distract Dr. Stockman's assistant, she grabs a miniskirt and ties it around the skirt that she's already wearing. But we never see her take this particular skirt off. It just magically disappears. She is also wearing pantyhose which suddenly changes to over the knee stockings.
Continuity mistake: After the meeting with the ghost of the mansion Erin hugs Abby and she gets the ectoplasm from her, but in the next shot it disappears.
Continuity mistake: While travelling with the novelties salesman, a passing car's occupants yell about the bag of groceries on top of the car. As the camera faces the salesman's car, he puts up the window advertising the fake bag gag. As the camera faces out towards the passing car, the window goes up again. Later, a truck passes by, and the salesman does the same thing, but the message is now in Spanish, without the man stopping to change it. A moment later, the window advertisement (seen from inside) appears to be in English during the same scene.
Continuity mistake: When Justin Bieber takes out his phone after being shot, the time on the phone is displayed as 1:48AM, but seconds later, when the camera pans down on the phone before the scene ends, the time displayed on the phone is now 1:51AM. Three minutes did not pass during this time.
Continuity mistake: When Lady Susan is counseling her daughter Frederica in her bedroom, the shot shows an unlit candle on a dresser behind Lady Susan. The shot changes back and forth between Frederica and Lady Susan. When the shot changes back to Lady Susan, the unlit candle is gone, though there is no one else in the room.
Continuity mistake: In the car-chasing scene with the Jaguar, the pursuer drive three different cars, In real-life they drive BMW e92 M3 coupes, in game-graphic BMW M4 coupes. And that one which crashes right into the Volvo is a BMW e46 coupe.
Factual error: Kim is seen using a first generation iPhone in the 2006 scenes. The iPhone was not released until summer 2007.
Continuity mistake: In the 3 wheeled vehicle, Bennie is driving and Conner says "Women do not go for that whole constipated Debbie Downer look." A shot shows Bennie's hair blowing wildly in the wind, then cuts to a view from Conner and suddenly Bennie's hair is straight and still, then cuts again and once again his hair is blowing.
New this month Continuity mistake: When David and Tom, as Mr. Fuzzypants are free falling from the building roof, David and Tom are falling with the building facing behind them. They turn around to face each other and are now shown with their side facing the building, but when David deploys the parachute, he is suddenly back with the building facing behind him again.
Audio problem: In the final conversation between Limus and Bardot, the robotic effect usually applied to her voice is missing.
Factual error: The limo shown is a 1990 (or later) Cadillac. It has large halogen headlamps and not the dual headlamps of a 70-71.
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.
