Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene with Darth Vader and Oscar the Grouch, watch Darth Vader's eyes. You can see the light screens and crew reflected in his eyes in every shot.

Continuity mistake: When Kahmunrah first appears on Archie Bunker's chair, the propeller beanie cap hanging on the side of the chair disappears in the close-up.

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: While Custer is guessing the Indian woman's name the monkey behind her appears and disappears.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Larry and Amelia escape into the VJ Day photograph, Larry is seen speaking to a sailor in dress blues. Throughout the exchange the rating badge on the sailor's arm changes from crossed keys, the insignia for storekeeper to lightning bolts, the insignia for radioman several times.

Revealing mistake: When Larry and Amelia's plane takes off, the cables it is held onto easily rip off from the canvas. For security measures, a real cable would be made of steel, therefore ripping the structure instead of just snapping like a string.

Revealing mistake: When Amelia and Larry are flying, his hair doesn't move a single inch.

Continuity mistake: When Larry's chauffeur takes him to the museum, the car passes way after a blue lamppost, but in the close-up it parks right next to it.

Continuity mistake: In the opening sequence Sacajawea is placed in a crate of tan, straw-like packing material. When Larry visits the museum a few hours later, Sacajawea emerges from a crate full of white packing "peanuts" (styrofoam pellets).

Continuity mistake: When Octavius and Jedediah escape through the hole in the metal container in the close-up, the shape of the hole changes in following shots.

Super Grover

Other mistake: When Larry first enters the main storage room, he has to go by the guard Booth. A voice says "ID" then acknowledges that it's "Brundon, later dude". When it shows Larry from behind it shows a clear shot of the inside of the entire security room. It is completely empty. Did a ghost ask for the ID?

Other mistake: In the fight scene between Larry and Kahmunrah, Larry throws the tablet to Amelia Earhart and she opens the gate, but she didn't say the magic words to open it or even worse she doesn't know those words as Kahmunrah.

Factual error: Larry and Amelia Earhart both fly the Wright Flyer using a stick control. It was actually controlled using a mechanism attached to the pilot's hips whereby he could turn the aircraft by shifting his body from side to side.

Factual error: On the shoulder of the Tuskegee Airmen, their 'American Flag' patch is seen having 50 stars. At the time of WWII, the US flag only had 48, and 48 would have been the number they'd wear.

Audio problem: When Larry sees the bust of Theodore Roosevelt in the Smithsonian, he calls out "Teddy!" But if you listen carefully after that he says "Robin!" probably referring to Robin Williams who plays Teddy.

Continuity mistake: When Larry and Brundon are saying good-bye both times, their distances between each other keep changing great distances instantly.

Starchild

Continuity mistake: As Kahmunrah is entering the combination 3.14159265, the last two numbers that he is entering is 95, not 65.

Continuity mistake: Custer explains to the Indian girl and the primitives how to attack and there's a close-up of the monkey with his hand on his chin. A second later, a wider angle shows the hand resting on the side.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: Roosevelt enters the scene and Larry greets him. The Indian woman's arms change from being crossed to down and next to the hips between shots.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: During the glowing torch commercial, the actor opens a drawer with metal stuff in, but in the wide angle a wooden stick appears.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: The way crates are placed differs enormously between the moment before and after the dinosaur throws Ben Stiller flying. Watch the crates on the back: First they are spread apart, perpendicular to the animal, but when Stiller lands they're parallel and close together to hide the safety crash mat in between.
