New this month Continuity mistake: When the reporter tells Dex this is his 500th case solved, there are extras in the background cheering. One of them to the right of shot is a man with ginger hair, moustache and beard. In one shot, he is wearing a light beige blazer, purple bow tie and white shirt, but in the next shot, when the reporter asks what is his secret, he is suddenly wearing a brown jacket, green bow tie and black shirt.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Dex is being interviewed in the park, he is holding the basket of baby kittens that he rescued. He is never shown handing the basket to anybody else, but just seconds later, as everyone leaves and Dan arrives in the scene, the basket of baby kittens has suddenly vanished.
New this month Revealing mistake: During the food fight, after Mr. Clean hurls a watermelon from the roof top, it lands on the ground, causing a pink explosion and a few shots are shown of the Brand X soldiers being blasted back and landing on the ground. In one shot of the soldiers landing on the ground after the watermelon explodes, some of the soldiers can be seen floating above the ground.
New this month Continuity mistake: When the food fight begins, Dex has two sets of two people pour a bowl of hot chocolate over the roof of a building that the Brand X army are attempting to climb. In the next shot, the hot chocolate that is being poured is now only one entire set of hot chocolate.
New this month Continuity mistake: When the lead Brand X soldier tells his army to retreat after the Ikes throw the food at them, he turns around and sees the army retreating and runs after. When he starts running, shadows cast from the buildings can be seen, but in the next shot, those shadows are nowhere in sight.
New this month Revealing mistake: After Dex has the bowls of hot chocolate poured over the roof, the rest of the Ikes then begin throwing food off the roof at the Brand X army. Most of the food that they are throwing just appears to be popping up on the screen from practically nowhere.
New this month Revealing mistake: When the Ikes are throwing food off the roof at the Brand X army, Mrs. Butterworth says "Take that, dear" whilst throwing pancakes from a large pile towards the army. The first pancake she throws lifts itself off the pile before she touches it.
New this month Character mistake: When Dex discovers Hairy Hold, Maximillius, Lola and Mr. Clean looking over the dead bodies, Dex asks who had died and Maximillius tells him that the dead bodies are of everyone who they through out of the Copa-Banana earlier on, but Dan and Lady X are the only ones missing. However, a few scenes later, at the U.S.D.A meeting, many of the people who were present at the Copa-Banana and threw out are present at the meeting and are not dead.

New this month Continuity mistake: When Dex and Dan run into the doctor's laboratory, Dex runs in first, followed by Dan who trips whilst walking in. Dan is then shown tripping over and over, with one shot of Dan tripping facing the laboratory, and the second shot of Dan tripping facing the doorway, but in neither shot is Dex anywhere in sight. Dex then suddenly reappears a few shots later.
New this month Revealing mistake: In the laboratory, when Dex tells the doctor he needs him to analyse what he borrowed from Lady X, it is apparent that when Dex first shows it the doctor, there is nothing in his hand. He just appears to be pretending to hold something. It is not until two shots later, that the object he shows to the doctor is visibly in his hand.
New this month Continuity mistake: In the store, when the Brand X woman throws a chicken leg towards Dex and Dan, the two fall from the shelf they are standing on. In the next shot, as they begin to fall from the shelf to the floor, boxes of dusting products have suddenly appeared in the space where they were standing, that were not there before.
New this month Continuity mistake: A kid playing with Sunshine kicks a melon towards Dan and it splatters leaving goop from the melon all over the ground around him. When Sunshine walks over to Dan a couple of seconds later, the goop from the melon has suddenly vanished from the ground.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Dex and Sunshine are having dinner in the park, as Dex says "I'll be fine. Have to be. To make sure nothing bad happens to you", there are various foods on the table in front of him, such as a bowl of apples, a pineapple, a banana split and a bunch of grapes. A couple of shots later, a sundae has suddenly appeared in front of Dex on the table out of nowhere.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Dan's plane is descending into the tree, there are two groups of gnomes shown near the tree after Dan breaks through a window. A couple of shots later, in another angle of the plane descending, there is now only one group of gnomes standing near the tree.
New this month Plot hole: After Lady X is taken away, the doctor arrives with an antidote that can bring the Ikes back to life, which he then gives to Polar Penguin who is just sitting in a Copa-Banana chair in the middle of the street. What exactly was Polar's dead body doing there? Last time he was seen, he was at the Copa-Banana and had died from his injuries, but his body is shown sitting in a chair in the middle of the street. The doctor creating an antidote that would undo his injuries was completely unplanned, so there is no real reason for his body to be out in the middle of the street like this.
New this month Revealing mistake: The exact same shot of Mr. Leonard's car beginning to pull out of the store after closing Marketropolis is used three different times in the movie. The first time is one minute into the movie. The exact same shot is used 11 mins 55 secs into the movie after Brand X visits. The third time is 41 mins 55 secs into the movie after Dex and Dan get into the office. This shown by the car being parked in the exact same place, the car showing the exact same movements and the car hitting a trolley, all positioned in the same place, on each occasion.

New this month Continuity mistake: When Cheasel realises he is standing on a train track, he says to Dex "You despise me, don't you?" As he says this, watch the building in the background, directly behind him. In the next shot, Cheasel has suddenly moved, as shown by his position in relation to the building.
New this month Revealing mistake: Many of the animated extras shown outside the red carpet at the Copa-Banana are shown waving and cheering, but not at any actual person walking along the red carpet. They just appear to be cheering towards the carpet, but their is no-one standing or walking in the direction they are looking towards.
New this month Character mistake: When Dex is rescuing the three baby kittens from the Fat Cat Burglar, he says to the burglar "I'm giving you one last chance to hand him over before I cash in your coupons for you." The Fat Cat Burglar is holding three kittens hostage, so in this context, Dex should have said "hand them over" and not "hand him over."
New this month Plot hole: When Dex is rescuing the baby kittens from the Fat Cat Burglar on the hot air balloon, whilst it is flying over the city, the four hairless hamster henchmen fly off the balloon and plummet down onto the street. Dex then saves the baby kittens and lands in the park, where two of the henchmen are shown landing in the park after plummeting. Three problems with this. 1) The henchmen fell before Dex saved the kittens and made his way down to the park, so how did they land on the ground long after Dex landed on the ground? 2) How did they land in the park if they plummeted from above a street? 3) How are there only two henchmen shown landing when four of them were shown falling all at once?
New this month Other mistake: When Cheasel attempts to cut the wires to the telephone pole, he takes out a chainsaw, bumping into a wire with the chainsaw slanted, then bumping into part of the pole with the chainsaw straight. He chops through the pole at a straight angle, but the area where the pole begins to detach from was never touched by the chainsaw.
New this month Other mistake: When Cheasel is about to be trapped by the wrecking ball, he is shown with his head and neck visibly extended whilst the ball is shown placed over his back. The wrecking ball then crushes Cheasel but his head and neck are crushed along with him, even though the ball was only shown landing on his back.
New this month Continuity mistake: When the woman with the baby in the store throws Dan out of the shopping trolley, Dan is thrown onto a trolley with Brand X products. Whilst he is being thrown, the Brand X products are seen in the far background, and there is only one row of Brand X products shown in the trolley. When Dan hits the trolley in the next shot, there are now suddenly two rows of Brand X products, stacked on top of each other.
New this month Continuity mistake: At the start of the scene where Hairy Hold, Maximillius, Lola and Mr. Clean are looking over the dead bodies, the scene starts with a far away angle and zooms in on the group. From the far away angle, it is only the group and the dead bodies shown in sight and no-one else. Mere seconds then pass and Dex has suddenly appeared out of nowhere.
New this month Revealing mistake: When Dan is crashing his plane the first time, just as Maximillius shouts "He's gonna crash again", both he and Sunshine are looking upwards towards Dan. Dex is looking upwards in the same direction, but his eyes are facing a different direction than the direction Sunshine and Maximillius is looking.
New this month Continuity mistake: In Dex's office, when Dan tells Dex he has a club to run and that he can bet the Copa Banana is going to be buzzing, there is a rug visible beside Dan. Two shots after this, the rug beside Dan has suddenly vanished. The rug reappears when Dan goes to leave the office.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Cheasel is holding Polar Penguin, he is first holding onto Polar with his left hand. Dex then tells Cheasel to put him down and he is suddenly holding Polar with his right hand. Cheasel then drops Polar in the next shot with his left hand.
New this month Continuity mistake: Just after the Fat Cat Burglar says "It is you, the great Dex Dogtective who's about to take a fall. Or should I say, be pushed", the shot cuts a wide angle where the hairless hamster henchmen are cornering Dex. Behind Dex is a henchman wearing red who is standing behind Dex on his left, but in the next shot, the henchman in red is suddenly standing behind Dex on his right.
New this month Continuity mistake: When the Fat Cat Burglar tells the hairless hamster henchmen to exterminate Dex, the shot cuts to Dex quickly gulping a raisin. In this shot, the henchman wearing red is standing directly behind Dex. In the next shot, the henchman in red is suddenly standing more to Dex's right.
New this month Plot hole: After Dex saves the baby kittens from the Fat Cat Burglar, he makes his descent to the park where a crowd is waiting for his arrival to celebrate his 500th consecutive case solved; the 500th case being Dex saving the kittens. The problem is, Dex only saved the kittens, and therefore only solved the 500th case, mere seconds before landing in the park, so there is no way the news of this could have broke in that short span of time, and nowhere near enough time for the crowd to be ready in the park for his arrival. The crowd leaves immediately after, so it is clear they were there for Dex and could have not been there for anything else.
New this month Audio problem: When Vlad Chocool is first introduced, a bird bumps into him and Vlad yells "Watch where you're going. I'm flying here" at it, then gets hit by the Vlasic Pickles stork and yells "Would excuse me kill you? Oh great, now I forgot where I was going." His mouth doesn't match up the dialogue when he says this.
New this month Revealing mistake: When Dex is first introduced, he is standing on top of a hot air balloon with four hairless hamster henchmen and the Fat Cat Burglar surrounding him. When Dex first appears onscreen, the henchman wearing yellow behind him can be seen with his right leg floating above the hot air balloon surface.
New this month Revealing mistake: When Lady X is introducing herself to Dex in the Copa-Banana, in the shot where she says "I've heard so much about you", there is an extra visible in the far background who appears to be floating in the air, and was not animated into the shot very well.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Dex shows Dan the cases he is yet to solve, he reads the headlines from the articles on his cork board to Dan, saying "Raisin riddle a mystery. Leads dry as prunes." Whilst he is saying the line, he is directly facing the cork board, but in the next shot, he is suddenly standing perpendicular to the cork board.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Cheasel is attempting to entice Dex with some products, there is a wall visible in the background behind him. The shot cuts to an extreme close-up of Dex, but when the shot cuts back to Cheasel, he is suddenly much further away from the wall, than when he was shown two shots prior.
New this month Audio problem: When the hamster henchman fall from the hot air balloon, the Fat Cat Burglar supposedly says "My mother would be so ashamed" but it is apparent that when he gets to the M in ashamed, the the line comes to an abrupt stop, despite their being no reason for him to stop speaking. It comes off like he's saying "ashame" rather than "ashamed."
New this month Plot hole: Dex tells Dan to take Lady X to the expiration station for recall which he then does, but within less than a minute, Dan has returned to the group. No way could he have taken Lady X to the expiration station and made it back in that short of a time frame.
01:20:25 - 01:21:10Casual Person
New this month Continuity mistake: When the hot chocolate has been poured over the Brand X, the leader of the army is standing ahead of the rest of army. The shot then cuts to an angle above the building where the others then begin throwing food from the roof and the leader of the army is no longer visible.
New this month Continuity mistake: At the Copa-Banana, when Dex is at the bar, Lady X begins talking with him and Dex then stands up to talk to her, whilst still standing beside the bar. He remains standing in the same place as they talk, but when Dan appears, Dex is suddenly standing much further away from the bar.
New this month Continuity mistake: After the first Copa-Banana scene, Dex is back at his apartment and pours some milk into a cup. When he finishes pouring, some of the milk he was pouring spills onto the table and the milk that is spilled on the table begin to land to the left of the cup. The shot then pans around to close in on the cup of milk, and an error occurs in the animation, as in the same shot, the spilled milk moves around the cup to a different position at another side of the cup.
New this month Revealing mistake: When Dex pours himself a cup of milk after leaving the Copa-Banana, the shot pans around the the table. When the shot pans around the milk carton and cup, Dex's legs have been animated over the edge of the table, giving the impression that he is hovering over the table.
New this month Other mistake: Whilst Dan's plane is crashing the second time, there is a shot from behind the plane where it shows the plane headed for a tree and also shows the plane mere meters from it. Dan spends the next twenty to thirty seconds trying to maneuver the plane and also attempting to pull the ejector seat, before finally crashing into the tree. Given the short distance between the plane and the tree in the reverse angle and also the twenty to thirty second gap of Dan attempting to maneuver the plane, as well as eject, the plane would have definitely crashed into the tree in a much quicker time than Dan had spent attempting to fix the plane.
New this month Continuity mistake: As Dan's plane is crashing into the tree, in the shot where a gnome is heard saying "Women and children second. Gnomes first, gnomes first", Dan is in the pilot seat sitting down. In the next shot, Dan is suddenly standing in the seat, whilst hitting the plane with a hammer.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Dex tells the Fat Cat Burglar he is giving him one last chance, the hamster in yellow behind him is standing mostly still with some upper body movements, but in the next shot, the hamster in yellow is suddenly spinning around in circles.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Dex shows Dan the four carrots ring he plans on giving to Sunshine, as Dan says "You got four carrots?", Dex's hand is around a couple of inches away from Dan. The shot then cuts to a closer angle of Dan and Dex's hand is nowhere in sight.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Lady X is giving a speech to the people of Marketropolis, the Brand X woman is scoffing down food, and the food is spilling over the floor around her. The woman then accuses the koala standing next to her of burping, and the food spilt over the floor has vanished.
New this month Other mistake: When Dex is walking down an empty street, Cheasel appears between his legs before moving his body around so that he is in front of Dex, whilst his head and neck remain in the same position. If Cheasel had his head and neck between Dex's legs, he would not have been able to move his body around Dex, as Dex's legs would have been in the way.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Dex and Lady X are dancing, a Brand X machine gets damaged when it gets spilt in water. When sparks begin emerging from the machine, Dex and Lady X are standing right next to it, but in the next shot, they are suddenly standing far away from it.
New this month Audio problem: When Lady X appears in Dex's apartment, she is holding a disc that she throws backwards. A glass shattering sound effect is heard, but there are no glass objects shown where the disc was thrown. If it was the disc that was shattered, then the glass shattering sound effect being played was the incorrect sound effect to play.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Dex takes Sunshine over to her dinner, Dex is carrying Sunshine and spinning her around. There is a shot from behind them where Maximilius says "All right. Your table's ready", where Dex stops spinning Sunshine around, but in the next shot, Dex finishes the last spin a second time.
New this month Revealing mistake: After Mr. Clipboard stomps on the bag of chips, Mr. Leonard begins to walk over to it saying that was a perfectly good bag of chips. In the far background, there is a sign in the background listing what is located in the aisle. The shot begins to pan in towards Leonard, and some of the animation on the sign in the background becomes erased, leaving some of the colour and detail on the sign incomplete.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Dex is showing the articles on his cork board to Dan, there is sunlight visible on the cork board. In a closer angle of the cork board, the sunlight is no longer there. The sunlight is suddenly visible on the cork board again in the next shot.
New this month Continuity mistake: After Dex finished reading the headlines from the articles about Sunshine's disappearance to Dan, he starts speaking to Dan. When he starts talking with Dan, saying "The only case...", his arms are by his side, but as soon as the shot cuts, his right hand is suddenly near raised.
New this month Continuity mistake: As the crowd of people in the park begin to leave, in the wide angle shot, watch the background behind Dex. There is a large quantity of red flowers, a building to the left of shot in the far background and a forest further back than the flowers and the building. The shot cuts to Dex saying "The real secret is that I am scared out of my mind Dan" and the entire background changes. There are now trees that have suddenly appeared behind Dex in the background, the red flowers are now way further back than in the previous shot and a building has suddenly appeared on the right hand side of the shot, while the building to the left of shot shown in the previous angle has moved to another part of the park, as shown when Dan tells him he can do it with him to help him.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Dex confronts the Fat Cat Burglar, in the wide angle where he says "one last chance", the henchman in yellow behind him is standing on a white coloured section of the hot air balloon. In the next shot, the henchman is now suddenly standing between a purple section and white section of the hot air balloon.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Dex and Dan are flying on the bottle through the town inside the ice-cream products, Dex tells Polar he needs to warn the other Ikes that Brand X is behind the rub-outs. In the shot where Dex says "Bring as many Ikes as you can to the Banana tonight", the area that Polar is standing on appears to be in the sunlight. The shot cuts to a closer shot of Polar, where the area he is standing in appears to be much more shadowed.
New this month Other mistake: The Brand X general instructs two of his soldiers to seal Dex and Dan into Mr. Leonard's office. The two soldiers do this by jumping onto a tube of glue which squirts onto the top of the door, moves around to the edge of the top and moves downwards, however the soldiers only jumped on the glue. They did not do anything to move the trajectory or direction of the glue.
New this month Audio problem: When the balls of fruit are being hurled towards the crowd after the Brand X army fire at them, whilst the balls are in the air, the sounds of the balls being launched are heard. These sound effects should have been heard when the balls are being launched, not while flying through the air.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Mr. Clipboard tells Mr. Leonard he wants to test the Brand X elixir, Mr. Leonard says "Brand X, huh", beginning to put his hands on his side, but in the next shot, his hands are suddenly off his side, slightly raised and clasped together.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Dex is walking down the red carpet at the Copa-Banana, he is being interviewed by a news reporter and begins to turn around a corner in the carpet. In the next shot, he is suddenly walking down a straight line, then reaches the corner a second time.
New this month Revealing mistake: When Dex takes out the cheese when the hairless hamsters advance on him, the hamster in red doesn't appear to be looking at the cheese. His eye movements are pointing towards the hot air balloon below him, but his head is moving in sync where Dex is waving the cheese, suggesting that he is supposed to be looking at the cheese.
New this month Other mistake: After Dex lures the hairless hamster henchmen away from the hot air balloon with a piece of cheese, they leap off the balloon to try and reach the cheese and they plummet to the ground. When the final henchman is falling from the sky, Dex and the Fat Cat Burglar are visible in the far background, but they are paying no attention to any of the henchmen plummeting and are instead just looking at each other. Given the fact that the Fat Cat Burglar has just lost his henchmen and Dex needed to make sure they were out of the picture so he could rescue the baby kittens, there is no real reason that they would ignore the henchmen falling.
New this month Plot hole: When the supermarket changes into the Marketropolis world for the first time, all of the inhabitants are able to come outside, but a large quantity of cars can be seen driving the streets. The market only changed into their world, and allowed them to come outside mere seconds earlier. This is too quick for the inhabitants to create this quantity of cars driving in the short span of time.
