Despicable Me

Other mistake: When the ride finishes, there is no sign of a safety bar in Gru's cart.

Continuity mistake: When the three girls are walking away from Gru, they are about to walk past Fred's driveway. In the next shot, they have already walked past the driveway within a split second.

Factual error: The Times Square Jumbotron has a ticker-tape message beneath it. Some of the letters have sections missing, presumably to represent broken bulbs. If this is the case, the missing parts would not scroll with the message, as it's only the constant switching on and off of the bulbs that gives the impression of movement.

Continuity mistake: When Gru enters his place with the girls, the dog bites the newspaper he holds and leaves pieces of paper scattered on the floor. When the angle changes the floor is clean.

Continuity mistake: During one of Gru's attempts to break into Vector's house, he is targeted with many bombs. In the first shot, only one of the bombs is colored red on the end. In the next shot, at least half of the bombs are colored red on the end.

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Perkins crushes the apple, it switches from his left to right hand between shots.

Continuity mistake: Justin, the boy with the toy aircraft running away from his mother, towards the pyramid in the beginning of the movie, has the toy in his left hand while going up the ramp, while falling and as he begins traveling up through the air but when the angle of view changes it is in his right hand until he lands on his father.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where they're in the air close to the end of the movie, when Margo tries to jump to Gru's plane, Vector grabs her and points the squid launcher at Gru, then the moon hits Vector, knocking him and Margo off his ship. When Vector climbs back up to his ship, the moon's gone. It couldn't have rolled away because Vector's ship didn't move in that short time.

Continuity mistake: At the very end of the movie the 3 girls are performing on stage. Agnes is wearing white tights, but after the platform raises them all above the house she no longer has tights, just bare legs.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Gru goes to get Agnes, Margo, and Edith from Vector from his "lair" (after giving him the moon) he puts his face against the camera and it displays Gru as taking up the full screen. When he then punches the camera it shows only a small portion of the screen is taken up.

Continuity mistake: Gru and two minions run through the air vent and fall through a hatch. There was no sign of the hatch in previous shots.

Continuity mistake: In the very first shot of inside the orphanage, the tape mark on the floor is at least 3 feet away from the desk. The three girls stand behind it and 2 shots later we can see they are standing about an inch away from the desk. Then when Miss Hattie stands up, the tape is now a foot away from the table.

Continuity mistake: When Gru tells the minions what he's going to do, one of the minions take out a torpedo. The angle of the torpedo changes between shots.

Factual error: When Vector is bragging to himself in his bathroom after stealing the shrink ray, he fires it at the sink. The sink shrinks, but there should be water spraying out of the pipes. There is none. Same thing with the toilet.

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Perkins tells Gru to get their money back, he crushes an apple in his hand and drops the remains onto the floor. When the angle changes, the remains of the apple have disappeared.

Continuity mistake: It's bright daylight (seemingly morning or early afternoon) when Gru goes down to the lab to reveal his plan to steal the moon. His speech is punctuated with him posing in front of the moon in the night sky, even though it was daylight just a few minutes earlier.

Continuity mistake: The girls shoot the freeze ray at Gru and he gets covered in ice. After his flashback he falls back and the ice shatters. But when Gru says "But I...", the ice has disappeared.

Continuity mistake: When Margo is reading out Vector's cookie order to Vector, Edith and Agnes are seen putting the last six boxes of cookies on the table. The cookies aren't there in the next shot.

Continuity mistake: When the girls put a mud pie on Hattie's desk, the leaves on it keep changing from wilted to perfect between shots.

Factual error: When the moon is regrowing, it destroys the ship (which is pushing it further into the sky), yet the moon is still pushed into the sky anyway, even though there isn't anything to push it. Even if only the cockpit was destroyed and the rocket's engine was still there, it still wouldn't have been strong enough to push the moon into orbit anyway.

During the scene in which a minion is stood behind a record deck you can see on the front left of the deck a logo not too dissimilar from the Blu-Ray logo, but for the use in this film it was edited to read as Gru-Ray.
