Spy Kids

Continuity mistake: When Juni handcuffs the metal box to his wrist, it switches back forth from his right wrist to his left over and over again. (00:35:05)

Continuity mistake: Lifejackets appear magically on the two kids when they emerge from the inside of the weird bubble ship. When they re-enter, they magically disappear. Likely, they simply didn't want the actors to be on a boat without a lifejacket, but there could've been a more graceful way to do it. (00:22:50 - 00:24:05)

Continuity mistake: In the first shot of Floop's castle, when the camera pans towards Floop, he holds a ball of clay in his right hand. When it cuts, it's in his left hand. (00:12:40)

Continuity mistake: When Carmen and Juni go into the clothing store, a Thumb Thumb hits the door. Moments later, the clothes trolley goes flying out of the door. It should have run into the unconscious Thumb Thumb, but the Thumb Thumb is gone. (00:42:15)

Continuity mistake: At Ingrid and Gregorio's wedding, when they escape after they hold hands, in the close-up the parachute leg straps are not around Igrid's thighs, they are dangling at her back as they run to leap off the cliff, whereas Gregorio's are set right. Yet in the next wide shot, as they jump, the straps are secured around both of her thighs. (00:06:00)

Continuity mistake: The handcuff with the broken chain that is stuck on Juni's wrist, actually changes its position to the opposite way, while on the same wrist, in some shots the single bar faces out and in others the double bar faces out. For example, when Juni speaks into his watch and says, "I'm toast!" the double bar faces out, yet in the park when Juni spins as robo-Carmen approaches him, the single bar faces out. (00:41:00 - 00:48:10)

Continuity mistake: When Ingrid is telling the kids the story in the beginning of how she fell in love with their dad, she mentions how nervous she was on the day of the wedding until she was walking down the aisle and saw him for the fist time. Then, as they said "I Do" was when the planes came and they escaped during the ceremony. But later on in the safehouse Carmen finds pictures from the wedding,including one of Ingrid and Gregorio together. So when were those taken?

Continuity mistake: After Ingrid and Carmen disappear through the ceiling, when robots Carmen and Juni appear, in the corridor towards the stairs there is a tall silver pedestal. When Carmen and Juni actually battle the two robots, as Carmen pulls robo-Juni's hands behind his back, there are multi-colored lights all over that pedestal. (01:13:00 - 01:15:45)

Continuity mistake: When Juni and Carmen sit in the park, as Carmen holds the locating device, Juni holds the Floop and Fooglie figures and starts to set them down. In the next shot, the Fooglie is already down, but Juni now holds the Third Brain, its small sack with the long cords and Floop. The position of the backpack changes between shots as well.

Continuity mistake: When the kids take the map from Machete, there is no hat on the headboard, no table, no lamp or drink and his pillow has vertical lines. Yet in the following shot when Machete wakes up to hear the rumble of the plane's engine and realizes the map is gone, numerous things change drastically. The headboard, though similar, is not the same one, his pillow now has broad horizontal lines, there is a yellow hard hat hanging on the corner of his headboard and a lamp on a small table with a large drink on it, are beside the bed!! (00:55:50 - 00:56:45)

Continuity mistake: When Carmen and Juni are in the Super Guppy being chased by Thumb Thumbs, they zoom towards the one-manned small boat. In the shot facing the small boat, its motor faces to the right of the Super Guppy, yet in all the following shots the boat now faces the opposite direction! Oddly enough, it's not a flipped shot. Also, in the shot facing the front of the Guppy as it actually flies over, the man sits much lower in the boat, before he bends down. (00:23:35)

Continuity mistake: When Carmen and Juni drop from the mini spy plane near the castle, in the first shot as they fall Juni does not wear his air tank and regulator as Carmen wears hers, however, as they hit the water he wears it. (00:59:00)

Continuity mistake: The characteristics and features of Floop's castle differ hugely in the exterior shots of the castle and the interior shots. One crucial example is all the windows in the grand room which are visible in interior shots, yet not in the exterior shots. (00:13:25 - 01:09:05)

Continuity mistake: When Minion chains Gregorio and Ingrid in the robotics lab, the position of the colorful link chains that bind them differ in consecutive shots. (01:04:25)

Continuity mistake: When Juni and Carmen are swimming underwater into Floop's Castle, Juni admits to peeing in the water. Then once they're out of the water the clothes under the wet suits are dry.

Continuity mistake: When Ingrid and Gregorio are tied up at Floop's castle, the amount of rope wound round Ingrid differs from shot to shot. First there are seven strands, then six, then five - which is the first shot as the laser cuts, and all are not aligned straight. Then, in the last shot, as the laser still cuts through in the extreme close-up, there are six strands again which now lie perfectly! (00:29:30)

Continuity mistake: When Gregorio and Ingrid drive the kids to school, Juni's tie is first under his seat belt, then it is over the seat belt, and once again under the seat belt. Plus, the seatbelt near Juni's collar differs between his reflection on Floop's screen and the real Juni.

Continuity mistake: When Carmen and Juni confront their doppelgangers, after their parents ascend into the circular opening, at the end of the corridor there are many things, including two tall yellow lamps, near the window, as well as two large globes sitting directly on the floor, against the side wall nearby. However, after robo-Carmen throws Juni across the floor (btw, he disappears in the second shot), when he runs back up the corridor everything (no kidding) at the end of that hall changes and now the large globes sit on stands! (01:14:40)

Continuity mistake: When Juni and Carmen reach the door to the Super Guppy, Felix puts the locating device down on the black bag with both handles down and then leaves. However, when Carmen retrieves the locating device the left handle is upright, though nobody touches it. (00:21:25 - 00:22:30)

Continuity mistake: When Juni opens the front sub window unintentionally, from a back shot he has his hands up on the control panel, then when it cuts to a shot facing them, Juni's hands are down by his side. (00:24:15)
