Continuity mistake: When Lenny calls Homer about free doughnuts Hans Moleman is in the background (in Lenny's scene) then Homer drives to the lake to dump the pig crap silo and he runs over Hans Moleman, But he was at the doughnut shop so he couldn't have gotten to the lake in time.

The Simpsons Movie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Marge and Homer are in the backyard with the silo, there is a drawing of a pig on it, but in Homer's close-up with part of the silo in the background, the part of the silo that's visible should have the pig drawing at the top, but it does not.

Continuity mistake: After Lou shoots at Bart's skateboard, before Bart flies past the truck's windshield, when we see Krusty Burger across the street (note the post and triple window), the road surface has double solid yellow lines.

The Simpsons Movie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Lisa sees Milhouse near the end, the door on his house hangs askew from the right door jamb and there is nothing above it. However, after Colin shows up, in the next shot when Lisa jumps up, the door now hangs askew from the left door jamb and there is wiring hanging above it (from the broken light fixture). Also note that the roof is much lower. Additionally, Lisa's position when talking to Colin changes - first they're standing to the left of the house, then to the right of it, then in front of the stairs at the center.

The Simpsons Movie mistake picture

The Simpsons Movie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the angry mob breaks down the front door of the house, the door knob is on the right side of the fallen door, at Chief Wiggum's feet.

The Simpsons Movie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After the news broadcast about the silo being discovered in the lake, in the first shot of Homer nailing the bedroom door shut, the blue panel drapes and valance have become beige (seen right behind Lisa and Bart).

Continuity mistake: When Bart looks out the bedroom window, and Ned tells Bart that he and his family should crawl out on the plank to his house, the pair of blue panel drapes and tiebacks have turned yellow.

Continuity mistake: After Homer nailed the bedroom door shut and then mimicked the sound of a chainsaw, when the hands of the angry mob push through the holes again, we see Marge and Lisa sitting at the edge of the bed where the bed's tall footboard should be. The footboard is back when Spider Pig pushes the plank off the windowsill.

Continuity mistake: When Marge and Homer are watching the news about the silo found in the lake, the TV sits on the dresser in front of their bed. The TV has vanished when Lisa runs into the bedroom, and when Marge tells Homer to go out, face the mob and apologize for what he did, the rest of the wall is visible, sans TV.

Continuity mistake: When the silo has been dumped and the pollutant begins spreading, there is no rope on the ground behind the car, but when Homer gets back into the car to drive away, there is a bunch of rope lying on the ground behind the car.

Continuity mistake: When Homer dumps the silo, in the overhead shot as it sinks, the car is parked right at the shoreline, then as the pollutant spreads in the water the car is much farther up on shore.

Continuity mistake: When Marge and Homer are in the yard with the silo, while she's telling him to dispose of it safely, the back porch light fixture is gone, but later reappears.

The Simpsons Movie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Bart walks into Krusty Burger, in the overhead shot the trash receptacle that's beside the door has a plain, flat top with nothing atop it. However, in the following shots the top of that trash receptacle has changed, it now has two raised side lips, and there are also two trays on it. Its height compared to the window behind it drastically changes as well.

Continuity mistake: When Bart walks into Krusty Burger, Ned gives him a pair of blue pants to wear, but after the commercial is filmed, when the pig stands on its hind legs with Homer, we see Bart's leg under the table and he's wearing his shorts, not the long pants.

The Simpsons Movie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the exterior shot of the Simpson house, before showing Homer and Marge watching the news about the silo being found in the lake, we see the side window (facing the Flanders' house, from which they escape later) is a horizontal sliding window. However, from inside the bedroom and also when they are escaping, that same window has changed to a vertical sliding window.

Continuity mistake: Right before Homer yells out of his bedroom window, when the shot moves forward, passing through the large angry mob, we see the mob walking down the street which is perpendicular to the front of the Simpson house (not the street in front, that runs parallel to his house). The problem is that after the dome was placed, when Homer screamed in the backyard, there was an overhead shot that zoomed out and we saw there are homes across the street from his house, no perpendicular street.

The Simpsons Movie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After the dome is placed, when the Simpson family runs out the back door of the house and Homer shouts, there is only one window on the second floor, above the back door. There should be two windows. The light fixture on the wall beside the door is also gone in some shots.

The Simpsons Movie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After Marge has brought Homer to see Maggie outside the dome, and then he thinks he's out of the dome, when he runs back into the house the water spigot attached to the house has vanished.

Continuity mistake: When Marge brings Homer to see Maggie outside the dome, but she's not there, he soon starts cheering and in the dome's reflection he raises his right arm which means it's his left arm that is actually raised, but when it cuts to Marge and Homer (in the view from outside the dome) it's his right arm that's raised in a cheer.

The Simpsons Movie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Marge sits on the back porch swing knitting 'dome sweet dome' and sees Maggie outside the dome, she runs inside to get Homer. The back door is right behind her and it's a solid door, with the round window missing, though the window does reappear.

The Simpsons Movie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: With the second set of options spread across the desk, when Cargill starts manipulating the President's option choice, there is a blank wall to the President's left (the wall faces the viewers). Also note that in this shot the table behind the President (with framed photos) is gone. When Cargill walks away from the President holding 'option 4', that blank wall now has a built-in bookcase, a table and chair.

Continuity mistake: There is a blue Presidential flag behind the President, with windows on both sides of that blue flag, but after viewing the security camera footage of domed Springfield, the window on the far end has become a solid wall. That window returns when Cargill influences the President's choice of options.

The Simpsons Movie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Russ Cargill spreads the second set of the five options across the President's desk, the Oval Office background is actually backwards - note the ship painting over the fireplace and pictures on the wall. The background keeps flipping between being backwards and the correct way until 'option 4' is chosen.

Continuity mistake: When Russ Cargill provides the President with the first set of five options and spreads them across the desk, the handle on the mutated squirrel tank is perpendicular to the president, but in the next shot the handle has flipped around and is now parallel to the president.

Continuity mistake: After Russ Cargill goes through the eye security system, in the overhead shot as he enters the Oval Office, we see the Seal of the President (on the rug) centered between the two couches, and there are two red chairs behind each of the couches. However, when Cargill holds up the tank with the mutated squirrel, the large round Seal is off to the side of the couches and one of the chairs is gone from behind the couch.

Continuity mistake: When Lou scrapes Bart off Krusty Burger's triple window, Lou is pushing Bart forward in front of him, so Bart should have fallen on the ground somewhere to the front/side of Lou. However, in the next shot Bart is lying on the ground about 20-30 ft behind where Lou had been standing, on the grass that's in front of the door.

The Simpsons Movie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Lisa goes door-to-door with the petition, the door on Milhouse's house has two grooved panels, a tall, 12-panel window, a light fixture above the door, and there's a tree between it and the blue house next door. When Lisa sees Colin and Milhouse again near the end, some of the features of the house have changed - unrelated to the damage Springfield's homes have suffered. The door now has three grooved panels and no mail slot, the window is much shorter, and the light fixture above the door is gone, with no hole in the wall if it had been broken off. The tree between the house and the blue house next door has changed position on the grass as well.

Continuity mistake: When Nelson punches Milhouse in the stomach, there is a hose hanging below the window attached to a spigot, and the front door has two grooved panels on it, but when the dome approaches and Milhouse swallows his inhaler, the door is flat and smooth, and the hose, its holder and spigot have vanished and been replaced with a bush.

The Simpsons Movie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When everyone is saying "Lord hear our prayer" at the church, Milhouse's dad Kirk is seen wearing a blue suit. Yet when Grandpa is freaking out, Kirk is now wearing a red suit.

Continuity mistake: When Homer dumps the silo in the lake, there are the words "Pig Crap" on the front and there is no writing on the back. However, when Lou and Eddie find the silo later in the movie, the "Pig Crap" words are there, but the words saying "Return To Homer Simpson, No Reward" has appeared out of nowhere.

Continuity mistake: When Homer leaves the bar Eski-Moes (in Alaska), he catches hold of a truck, which propels him up the hill in front of his cabin. However, he runs outside a few minutes later and floats away on the heart-shaped iceberg, which has suddenly appeared on a lake that was never there before. The road that the truck was on earlier is gone.

Continuity mistake: The Simpsons enter a motel (Red Rash Inn) to hide, and it's clear from the outside that the building is only one story high. But when Homer flings back the curtains to reveal the buildings and billboards, it appears that the motel room is located on a much higher floor, since the view seems to be level with the building tops.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where they are climbing the rope to escape the dome, the hole seems to be very wide. Yet when Homer is on top of the dome the hole is very small.

Continuity mistake: The thickness of the dome changes from when it's dropped on Springfield to when they are escaping.

Continuity mistake: The size of the round window in the church changes size throughout the film.

Continuity mistake: When Homer heads to the lake to dump the silo, the car's rearview mirror disappears and reappears.

Factual error: In the scene where the angry mob is attacking the Simpsons in the tree house, Grandpa Simpson is shown aiming a double-barrel shotgun, which he then pumps to ready it for firing. There's no such thing as a double-barrel pump-action shotgun.

It then cuts to a close up and now you can see the opossum tail in Cletus' right hand. There is no time for him to have grabbed it from anywhere.

Continuity mistake: Homer leaves Eski-Moe's with nothing in his hand. Then he grabs onto the back of a truck with still nothing in his hand. Homer lets go of the truck and zooms to the house and there's still nothing in his hand. But when he opens the door, there's suddenly a bouquet of flowers in his hand.

Continuity mistake: When the Simpsons are driving to Alaska, Homer puts the poster of Alaska on the window. Marge then removes the poster and we see the van is going out of control. In the next shot that shows them screaming, we can see they are driving totally normally judging by the view from the back window.

Continuity mistake: In the shot where we see Homer first in The Ball Of Death, two pink tents are visible in the background. But when it cuts to the wide shot, the two tents in the background have disappeared.

Audio problem: When Homer fails motorcycling around The Ball Of Death, the shot cuts to inside the Ball Of Death. About a second after the shot cuts inside The Ball Of Death, Homer is heard sighing. But his mouth doesn't move. A sigh like that would require his mouth to move.

But after Marge, Bart and Lisa have jumped into the sink hole and it cuts to a wide shot, Drederick Tatum is seen a lot further away from the sink hole than he was previously - look closely to the right of screen in the wide shot, that's where Tatum is.

But if you look in the shot where the car is lifted up, you can see there is no sign of Fat Tony's assistant.

Other mistake: When Homer falls through the roof into the house we see Grandpa sitting somewhere other than the ground floor or the second floor. The problem is the Simpsons' house has an attic on top of the second floor and below the roof. The length of the attic's floor and the house around it are totally the same, so really what we should have seen was the attic, not Grandpa sitting somewhere.

Continuity mistake: When Homer is doing his chores, he covers the sink hole with the sand box and the sand starts sinking too. About a minute later as Bart is hanging off the roof just as Homer falls into the house, Maggie is seen in the background in the sand box, but there is no sign of the sand sinking.

Not only that, but he and Bart are headed in completely different directions.

When he's hanging onto his father's shirt, Bart first grips the bomb's handle with his palm and fingers facing the front of the bomb, with the clock. Then when he's hanging onto his father's hair, Bart's hand has flipped around and he's now gripping the bomb's handle with his palm and fingers facing the back of the bomb. Something to look out for is the shot just before the close-up of Chief Wiggum, because as Bart raises his arm the bomb actually flips over in his hand while we're watching. Quite impossible.

Continuity mistake: After Homer and Marge watch the news about the silo found in the lake, when Homer walks to the window we see that there are two blue panel drapes with tiebacks on the left and right side of the sliding window.

The Simpsons Movie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Homer is driving toward the small Alaskan booth, right beside the booth there is a tall flagpole with two raised flags, but when they leave the flagpole has vanished, though it should be seen in this shot since it's on the same little 'island' as the booth. Also note that the snow on the booth and island has vanished.

Continuity mistake: When Bart walks into Krusty Burger, in the overhead shot we see Ned and his sons sitting on stools with bases attached to the floor. In the next close-up, Rod and Todd Flanders' stools are in different positions - note the checkered floor.

Continuity mistake: After the book knocks over the AA meeting's coffee machine, when the group of people run out of the church, the ground in front of its doors is flat and leads straight to the walkway.

However, in previous and following shots there are stairs at the front of the church, and the area of grass only between the church and sidewalk/street.

Continuity mistake: When Russ Cargill holds up the tank with the mutated squirrel to the eye security system on the wall, there is a square piece under the handle to secure it to the top.

The Simpsons Movie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Lou shoots at the skateboard Bart goes flying in the air, and in the next shot (before he flies past the truck's windshield) we see Krusty Burger across the street (note the triple window and post), and there is a tall, long bush between the street and Krusty Burger. That bush vanishes in the following shots.

Factual error: Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie Simpson take the train from Alaska to Seattle, Wash. (The train shown in Alaska, is the exact same one that arrives in Seattle). This is not possible as there is no train, (passenger or freight), that links Alaska to the southern 48 states, including Seattle, Wash. Homer Simpson does not take the train to the southern 48 states.

Continuity mistake: During the bike stunt at the end, Homer's hair flows in some shots, but is completely rigid in others.
