Continuity mistake: While all the boys are trying to escape with ET, there are black brake levers/clamps on Michael's and Greg's bike handlebars, and brass brake levers/clamps on Tyler's and Steve's handlebars, but in some closeups this changes. For example, after Steve shouts, "Let's split up," Michael's are brass, when Tyler pulls off his balaclava his are black, and when Greg shouts, "Tell me when it's over," his are brass. Presumably bikes were switched for closeups.

Continuity mistake: After Gerry gets smacked in the face by the 'broken' suspender clasp, we see the silver clasp land under the dresser. Yet, when he's moaning and lifting his leg to get onto the bed, we can actually see the clasp still intact on the front suspender that came loose, which is dangling right behind him (just look between his legs). Of course, in the next shot, that clasp is gone. Since the silver clasp is one of the plot points, this is bizarre to say the least.
Continuity mistake: When John and Catherine are in the hangar at the runway, the Cessna's tail number is N3035C. When the plane is shown in the air, the number is N3973F. When they land, the tail number has changed back to N3035C.
Continuity mistake: In the bedroom scene the girl is holding a clear cup full of beer. The camera goes off her and when it comes back she is holding a blue cup. The camera goes back off her then on her and the cup is clear again. [This mistake does not appear in the unrated version - the blue cup scenes were shot specifically to secure an R rating from the MPAA because the contents are obscured.].
Continuity mistake: When Sam is in his bedroom, after he finds the Cube sliver it falls and dramatically burns a hole through the floor into the kitchen. But Sam's bedroom is over the living room (there is nothing on the ground floor below Sam's elevated bathroom, and in the first movie Jazz hides in this open space), and the kitchen is actually located between the den and dining room, at the other end of the house. If they were to follow the actual floor plan of the house, the Cube sliver would have landed in the area of the piano in the living room, but where would the fun have been in that?
Factual error: When Packard and his men arrive on the island, they are seen wearing ALICE gear (All-purpose Lightweight Individual Carrying Equipment). The film takes place in 1973, that type of gear would've just finished testing phases in 1973. The soldiers would be more accurately equipped with M-1956 Load-Carrying Equipment (LCE) or M-1967 Modernized Load-Carrying Equipment (MCLE).
New this week Continuity mistake: Late in the film, Clare becomes unpopular again and a girl throws a drink at her shirt. The stain the drink makes changes considerably when she is cleaning it in the bathroom mirror (it is darker and more messy). The stain then is back to what it was earlier after that (before we see her wish for her mother to be alive).
Factual error: Throughout the first battle at "Hacksaw Ridge" some of the men are seen pulling the pins of grenades with their teeth. In actuality, the pins on the grenades (both modern and old ones) take at least 7 pounds of force to release the pin. If someone did that, they'd either cause severe damage to their teeth or maybe lose a couple.
Continuity mistake: When Gaston and Le Fou approach the village on horseback, they watch Belle through a telescope. In the shot from behind, Le Fou has to stretch out to reach the telescope when Gaston passes it across and his fingers barely touch the end of it, but when the view changes to the front the horses are closer together and he is holding the telescope firmly in the middle.
