Sirius Black: Brilliant, Snape. Once again you've put your keen and penetrating mind to the task and as usual come to the wrong conclusion.
There is a portrait of a woman with a baby to the left of the Fat Lady's portrait. The baby is director Alfonso Cuaron's daughter, Tess Bu Cuaron. See more...

Harry's scar does NOT change sides in the boggart scene - various shots in that scene are filmed in a mirror. Also, as with the other films, differences between the book and film aren't movie mistakes.
Continuity: At Snape's class when Hermione shows up and Ron says "Did you see her come in?", you see Potter turning around facing Hermione. When it cuts to Snape saying "Now, which one of you can tell me the difference..." you can see Potter is now looking at his book. When it cuts back Potter is facing in Hermione's direction again.
Continuity: During the DADA lesson, as Lupin jumps between Harry and the Boggart, to their right there are two tall containers, beside one another, standing against the wall with different items in them. The items change in the following shots, including the 'mirror reflection' shot. When the balloon whizzes past the back of the class and the camera spins around, the two vases are much farther apart, but in the next shot facing Harry, they're together again.
Other: When Dumbledore first introduces Lupin as the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, the camera pans to the Gryffindor table. You can see that Ron and Hermione are sitting opposite each other with their dinner sets in front of them. Then Malfoy insults Harry, then when it cuts to Ron saying "Shove off Malfoy" Ron is now sitting opposite the girl who was beside Hermione and not Hermione herself, and the girl couldn't have just moved across because all of her dinner set is in front of her too, perfectly set out.
Revealing: When Malfoy and his friends are beaten up by an invisible Harry, Malfoy is dragged along by Harry. In the SECOND shot when Malfoy is dragged along (which is a close shot of Malfoys legs up in the air) look closely (perhaps slow-mo) in the bottom right hand side of the screen and you can see a bare hand move into view, quite close to the screen. This can't be Malfoys because he has gloves on.
Continuity: When Harry and Hermione travel back in time, Harry walks towards Buckbeak, planning to save him. There are pumpkins around Buckbeak and there is also a black cauldron near him too. The pumpkins and the cauldron move between shots during the scene as do other items in the background, and nobody touches them.
Continuity: When Marge floats off, Vernon is holding onto her, and Marge's dog is biting Vernon's trouser leg. In a closeup the dog is pulled well onto the Dursely's back lawn, as he bites Vernon's trouser leg, yet in a following wideshot the dog is dragged from the patio and onto the lawn once again, whilst biting the trouser leg.
