The Goonies

Other mistake: In the scene where Mikey, Brand and Mouth are listing the exaggerations Chunk has come up with, Mouth says "And I bet it was even more amazing than the time you ate your weight in Godfather's Pizza." When he gets to the "Godfather's Pizza" bit, it becomes clear that this has been dubbed over the original filmed scene, as his mouth does not match his words in the slightest.

Continuity mistake: All the Goonies get soaked while in the Old Moss Garden wishing well, but when they are seen again in another part of the cave they are all dry, and there is not a sign of being soaked.

Continuity mistake: When the back of the Fratelli's ORV is riddled with bullet holes, you can see they make a distinctive backwards "L" shape above the Jeep letters. Later, when Chunk examines the ORV, the bullets holes are now in different places than they were before. Also, the license plate that is seen on the ORV when it is hit by the bullets, changes design as well.

Continuity mistake: Before Chunk opens the Fratellis's door, Data looks at Mouth, and then turns his head at Chunk while smiling. A frame later, from a new angle, he is still looking at Chunk and repeating the previous movements.

Continuity mistake: When Jake Fratelli is in jail, the position of the sign on his chest changes between the first and second shot. The right tip is first touching his chin, and a frame later it's 15 cm below.

Continuity mistake: When the cop is reading Jake's suicide note the distance between one side of the scarf and the other keeps changing between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Data is about to slide through a cable to enter the house, the sky swaps from bright blue coloured in the close-ups to yellowish early dawn type in the wide angles.

Continuity mistake: During the initial chase, the way Data's sweatshirt folds over his utility belt keeps changing through shots.

Revealing mistake: When Data falls into the hole and is saved by his Pinchers of Peril, which is attached through his left sleeve, the real stunt cable behind him is visible.

Continuity mistake: When Data shoots the suction dart at the orange drum, he stands in front of grey drums and other junk, but in the close-up as Data opens the belt's dart compartment, the area behind him is completely different.

Continuity mistake: During the jail escape, when Jake is trying to open the locked door, there is a close-up of Mama Fratelli shouting, "Jake, up!" and we see a police cruiser parked on her left. When they leave, in the overhead shot that space is empty, but next shot a vehicle is there, though it isn't a police cruiser.

Other mistake: When the Inferno is in the cave the vessel's sails hang or are furled a specific way on the masts, but when the ship sails past the beach the rigging differs significantly.

Continuity mistake: When the kids first see the Inferno, in the wideshot facing all of them, Brand stands between Stef and Mouth with Data and Mikey off to the side, but next shot facing the ship Brand is now at the other side hugging Mikey.

Continuity mistake: When the kids first see the the skeleton bone keys, Stef and Andy are arm in arm with each other, but next shot facing the skeleton Stef is standing behind Andy.

Continuity mistake: When the first police car makes a U-turn, to chase the Fratellis, the squad car's front passenger window is rolled up, as the officer's hands are on the steering wheel. But in the next interior shot, facing that window, it's rolled down - there's even a black wire hanging over the bottom of the open window, to the left.

Continuity mistake: When Mouth goes down the hole in the fireplace passageway, the cooler base is right beside the fireplace, but when Mikey pushes Data and his backpack into the hole, the base is farther away. When Brand pulls the log holder over the hole the base is back, right beside him, but when Chunk heads for the basement window the base is farther away again.

Audio problem: When Data turns on the 'bully blinders', the others are blinded by the light. As they follow him we hear Mouth shout, "Who is that? Oh Stef that's you, watch out! Data!" his mouth is not in sync with any of it.

Continuity mistake: In the first overhead shot of Chester Copperpot, his entire ribcage and his right arm bone are visible. In the following shots the boulder lies more than halfway up his ribcage and the arm bone is not visible any longer.

Continuity mistake: When the Fratellis drive away from the Lighthouse Lounge with the corpse wrapped in the black plastic, the boys duck down behind a rock and a large piece of driftwood. Their positions are completely different between the front and back shots.

Continuity mistake: There is a rather tall plant beside the Walsh's front door, in the corner, that keeps moving from the corner to the front of the draperies, then back again, throughout the early scenes.

Mouth: Is this supposed to be water?
Mama Fratelli: It's wet, ain't it? Drink it!



When the Fratellis first catch up with the kids, Data yells out, "Holy S-H-I-T". On the DVD Commentary, Ke Quan explains he spelled out the word because his mother did not allow him to curse. He figured if he spelled it, that it didn't really count as cursing.
