Continuity mistake: After Ken reverses the steamroller after running Otto over with it, you can see a red patch signifying his splattered body in front of the roller. However, a few scenes later, Otto is seen alive. (Otto was originally meant to die, until test audience feedback influenced a change of mind on the part of the filmmakers.)james1000
Continuity mistake: In a bus scene Crash is shown holding a guitar talking about being in the majors. In one scene he's just holding the guitar, the next he has a pair of sunglasses in his hand while holding the guitar. The next scene the sunglasses are gone. A couple of shots later the guitar is sitting in the seat next to him. When Laloosh challenges Crash to a fight, he's holding the guitar again.
Continuity mistake: During the horse and buggy ride to the church through downtown New York, when one of the girls is holding the reins by herself, you can tell there is a person under a red blanket at her feet (I guess to protect her while filming in case something goes wrong,) and only a moment later, the same blanket is black.
Continuity mistake: During the bear in the cabin scene, after Chet puts the door back up, shortly after, you'll see the door is on the floor while Roman is fighting the bear with the oar from the steps. (Also, note in that same shot, you'll see the bookshelf was destroyed to pieces with its books all over the floor. That scene was never shown and must have been cut from the movie).
