Corrected entry: When Balthasar arrives at the Mantua Outfields to tell Romeo of Juliet's "death", he tries to comfort Romeo, who promptly shoves him off letting his shirt fall open as he walks away. As he falls down in the middle of the field and begins screaming Juliet's name, his shirt is still open. But, as he gets up his shirt is suddenly done up.
Corrected entry: At Romeo and Juliet's wedding, you see Juliet's maid at the end of the aisle towards the door. When she starts walking toward the front of the church, the camera cuts to a shot of the boys choir. When it cuts back, the maid is at the end of the aisle towards the front of the church. We should have seen her in the aisle in the shot of the boys choir, but she's not there.
Corrected entry: When Mercutio has just been wounded by Tybalt, he leaves the stage area and dies on the beach. there is then a long, still shot of Romeo sitting with Mercutio then running off to his car to chase Tybalt. If you watch the rather large Montague to the left of the screen, he edges away off screen so that the action behind him can be seen. This may not have been a mistake however, it does look as though someone is telling him that he is blocking the shot so he tries to be subtle.
Corrected entry: During an early scene at the Capulet mansion, Gloria Capulet and the nurse are searching frantically for Juliet. Before she appears to them Juliet is bathing and her hair is soaking wet. In the next shot when she appears before them in a bathrobe her hair is almost completely dry. (00:16:45)
Corrected entry: After Romeo kills Tybalt, the priest hides him and the nurse visits him in hiding with a message and a ring from Juliet. This is no more than a few hours after the killing, and the ring is inscribed with "I love thee" on the inside. When would she have had time to get that done? Especially when she's not allowed to leave the house except to go to church?
Corrected entry: When Romeo shot Tybalt he fired three or four times, however, there was only one bullet in the gun. When Tybalt was about to duel with Romeo he had a crony eject all but one bullet from his gun and reholster it. That was the same gun that Tybalt dropped and Romeo shot him with - he wouldn't have had time to reload during the car chase.
Corrected entry: When the Montague boys are driving away from the gas station, the hose breaks away from the nozzle, spraying gas all over Benvolio and the station. However, we never see anyone actually put the nozzle into the gas tank.
