Factual error: When they are refuelling the helicopter (as a zombie approaches quietly from behind) the actor has put the gas nozzle not into the hole for the gas tank, but into one of the foot-holes that helicopter mechanics use to climb up to the top of the helicopter to do repairs. It doesn't even fit properly. (00:22:55)

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene during the American bandstand, at the end of the song when the teacher is dancing in front of the band members, the crews can be seen. The dressing and the hair doesn't match Grease era at all, and someone is sitting on a director's chair as well. (01:06:20)

Revealing mistake: There's one bit where we see the shark slamming into a boat and gliding along the side with its mouth open.

Visible crew/equipment: Just before Laurie stabs Michael with the knitting needle you can see that one of the window shutters is open and that the wind is ruffling the curtain. When the camera gets closer and the curtain is out of the way you can see the huge fan in the studio being used to simulate the wind outside. (01:19:50)
