Spy Kids

Continuity mistake: In the opening shot of the film, as Carmen sits by the window, Ingrid walks past the table in the hallway when she enters the bedroom and on the table are flowers and a doll. Behind Carmen, a red cloth is draped over the tall dresser. In the following shots a lamp (lit) makes its appearence on the hallway table, the doll's position changes and the red cloth on the dresser not only changes position, but in many shots one side is actually gone. (00:00:50 - 00:06:40)

Continuity mistake: In the kids' room, when Ingrid approaches Juni to remind him about the wart medicine, Juni's red and yellow cars are on the blue dresser behind Ingrid. Then when Ingrid finishes telling the spy story, as she says, "Trading espionage for parenthood," the cars' positions differ, and when Juni says, "It needs monsters," they change position again.

Continuity mistake: At the wedding, as Ingrid starts to nervously walk up the aisle, the people she passes on her left not only change position while they're still on her left side in three consecutive shots, in the next few shots quite a few guests actually change sides and/or are now nearer the groom.

Continuity mistake: At the wedding of Ingrid and Gregorio Cortez, when the planes come a bunch of pages fly out of the large bible the pastor holds. In the next shot of the pastor he's now holding a small bible with a different cover. (00:05:25)

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: When Ingrid is in the bedroom at the vanity table, the tray of makeup with the lipstick at the back is reflected in the large center oval mirror directly behind it. However, in the next close-up as she types on the makeup, the mirror's back wood support and the bedroom wall are behind the makeup, not the mirror. It is only in the next shot, as Ingrid finishes typing, that the mirror actually turns horizontally to expose the wood support and wall. (00:07:35)

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: Near the beginning of the movie, when we see Floop's castle for the first time, the camera zooms in on it as Lisp welcomes the investors, and we see Floop looking out through his puzzle piece shaped window. The puzzle window Floop looks through in the exterior shot is completely different than the puzzle window in the interior shots. (00:13:05)

Continuity mistake: In the exterior shot looking in through the puzzle window, the black book behind Floop changes position in a following shot. As Floop counts down, when the men move the tables the large glass pitcher changes position. Then, when Floop says, "One!" the chair with the purple seat is in front of the large chair to Lisp's left, yet when Johnny jumps over Lisp, the purple chair is gone. (00:13:15 - 00:14:30)

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 the large doors to the grand room open, robot Johnny runs up the corridor towards Lisp and the door to the virtual room as well as its two signs, are at the end of the corridor. Yet when Gregorio and Carmen 'drop in' on Floop's table, the wall with a window is at the end of the corridor. Then when Minion receives the Third Brain from the robots the virtual room doors are visible, however in the following shots the wall with the window is back once again. (00:14:30 - 00:52:30)

Continuity mistake: When Lisp is introduced to and then flipped by the robot of the president's daughter, Minion stands directly between the doors and the straw figure. However, in the next close-up he stands between the straw figure and the huge pineapple. (00:15:05)

Continuity mistake: After the red alert alarm goes off, Uncle Felix grabs the kids' emergency backpacks. When he places them on the table their positions differ greatly in the following shots. (00:20:35)

Continuity mistake: After Uncle Felix turns the dial to the secret chamber behind the bookcase, the position of safe door, books and other items differ in the shots facing the long hallway and the shots facing the bedroom. (00:21:15)

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 Carmen and Juni are getting into the boat/submarine for the first time, Juni can be seen sitting down in one shot, and then sits down again in the next shot. (00:21:50)

Continuity mistake: After Carmen and Juni board the Super Guppy boat/sub, the Thumb Thumbs break through the bookcase creating a mess at the secret entrance. When Carmen runs back out to retrieve the locator, in the shot facing Carmen's back as she crawls in the distance, the bookcase/door is intact. (00:22:30)

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: While Juni and Carmen are in the Super Guppy, the top of boat, above the controls, actually differs within the sequence of shots on the water. Their heights differ as well. (00:23:00)
