Adventures of Aladdin

Continuity mistake: During the fight with the vizier's overgrown lizard, Zamir draws the attention of the "big ugly belching beast"' insulting it. The lizard is looking at him, and he's on the beast's right. Aladdin then faces it, but the bad guy force-throws a rock at him and the beast turns towards him, to the left. Zamir then draws its attention again tossing a sword, that hits its...left eye. He was on the other side. (01:06:10 - 01:06:50)

Continuity mistake: In the uphill trip to the Vizier (now Sultan) 's palace, Samad says "To be honest, I'm not in such a hurry to meet up with a wicked man wielding a genie." Aladdin approaches him in a wide shot where everyone's hair and clothes are still, while in every other angle everything is awfully breezy. (00:52:35)

Continuity mistake: Talking about the lamp, the British-Arabian friend of Aladdin says "There's something more below the surface here." Naveena in frame has her hair behind the ear, but at the cut, she has her ear covered by a long bang. It keeps switching back and forth depending on the camera angle. (00:25:10)

Continuity mistake: After Aladdin meets the 'Sultana' for the first time, with his buddies informing him about what just happened, throughout the whole scene the same extras move with jumpy continuity between shots. Very recognizable the veiled pink girl and a really tall dude in a brown robe, or Aladdin's friend himself at the beginning. (00:09:35)

Continuity mistake: Aladdin, his friend and the princess have been captured and are in the presence of the self-appointed (through the genie) Sultan. The lighting of the scene differs between shots, with clear light areas in the front view of the trio and homogeneous shadow from the back view. (01:03:00)

Continuity mistake: When Aladdin and the beautiful woman not legally allowed to be called Jasmine are talking in the forest, she has a lock of hair on the front of the shoulder in the side views, but not on the close-ups, when it disappears behind the large earrings. (00:43:50)

Continuity mistake: As the Vizier is creeping the Sultana out with backrubs, a servant pops abruptly in frame with a message on a platter. He is holding the platter in a different way (thumb fully on it when he talks about the white horse) between shots. (00:37:10)

Continuity mistake: The Genie creates a royal palace for Aladdin, who pranks him, acting unimpressed. He then cracks up and throws an arm over his shoulder. He is holding the lamp in that hand, but at the cut, he's holding it in the other hand. (00:35:20)

Continuity mistake: Aladdin's friends are getting into a burping contest (no, really). Naveena says "That stench is worse than a dead camel's backside." without holding her glass, which is in her hand in the shots before and after. (00:29:30)

Continuity mistake: When Aladdin lands with his magic carpet in front of (not) Jasmine, (not) Jafar and two guards, the guards have their weapons at rest while just mere frames earlier they were pointing a spear and a sword at him. (00:39:20)

Continuity mistake: The Vizier has figured out Aladdin is the prince. Meanwhile, "Ali" is walking with the Sultana; in the whole sequence he has the light of the sun (or moon, hard to tell) on him, or not, depending on the angle. (00:42:40)

Continuity mistake: The Vizier orders the Genie to change the princess' clothes into something else, and he magically poofs them into red silks. Next time we see her, she is back into the same clothing the Genie transmutated. (00:51:10 - 00:53:55)

Continuity mistake: Naveena's scarf opens up between shots when Aladdin asks her "Please" after her brother's death, and gets back wrapped around her neck when she slaps him. It keeps going back and forth during the scene. (00:57:50)

Continuity mistake: Aladdin has destroyed the last of the illusionary lamps; In the side view he puts the wand vertical and holds it with the left hand above the right hand. Cut, and it's the exact opposite. (00:20:15)

Continuity mistake: The genie poofs Aladdin's friends into a room. During that scene, Naveena's hair is styled differently depending on the shot angle. It either has visible bangs, or does not. (00:40:35)

Continuity mistake: Aladdin wakes up in the cave after the Vizier shoved him in. Kneeling, he picks up the lamp with his right. "This makes you Sultan?" he asks, with the lamp in his left. (00:22:50)

Continuity mistake: When Aladdin deals with the three objects in front of the tic-tac-toe pattern, the ones which have vases on top with arms have a different orientation in every shot. (00:16:45)

Continuity mistake: The genie changes Aladdin's clothes into those of a prince (so we are told), but his face remains dirty. Except in the close-ups, when it's nice and clean. (00:33:25)

Continuity mistake: Aladdin hopscotches through the lava pit; he has no wand in hand when viewed from behind, but in close-ups he is firmly holding it in his left. (00:18:00)

Revealing mistake: A basket with fireworks catches fire. When the basket is flung into the air, they forgot to add the CGI for it, so it's not burning at all. But the effect is there in the second shot, when Aladdin bicycle kicks it away. (00:06:00)
