Adventures of Aladdin

Revealing mistake: Jafar (rather, Vizier Maghreb) throws a tantrum after the Sultan's decision to give power to his daughter. In the following scene, he is going out with the Sultana. The scenery shown has an incredibly fake CGI feeling, including some suspiciously static human figures on a green lawn. To confirm the suspicions, once the market scene is over and the Vizier winks Aladdin into his grasp, the same panoramic view, verbatim, is presented, including the same ant-like static human figurines on the lawn.

Revealing mistake: Aladdin's friends are trying to explain to him that he just met the new ruler of the city. The friend, Dariush, says "Allah has given him eyes and he doth not see." Zamir, the friend with the British accent (that kinda feels like a mistake on its own) interrupts him; "Stop that. You're not a holy man." And by "interrupting" I mean that literally cuts him off as Dariush began to say the word "Words", from his following line "Words of the righteous may fall from any lip", which obviously make sense only as a retort to Zamir. The actor messed up and was blurting his line early. (00:09:40)

Revealing mistake: Aladdin and his friends are in the middle of nowhere outside of the cave. At the beginning of the take when Zamir says "Start properly, from the beginning", Havon Baraka is looking straight into the camera, turning his eyes to the others only later. (00:24:25)

Revealing mistake: Aladdin uses the rope horizontally to move past the fire on the floor. Obvious CGI flames get to his clothes and to him, but he does not break a sweat or feel any pain. (00:17:55)

Revealing mistake: In the scene with Dariush sucked away by the dust devil, he is supposedly struggling with the pull of the whirlwind as he clings to a plant, but you can see his arms bent and the bushes undisturbed. (00:53:20)

Revealing mistake: "Prince Ali" descends on a magic carpet surrounded by fireworks...in a hall that is roughly 20 feet high. The scene is played 'straight' and not as parody. (00:39:10)

Revealing mistake: When Aladdin's friend pops out of a window, the CGI effect used given the lack of a real palace set built is of questionable quality. (00:42:20)

Revealing mistake: In the middle of the desert banquet scene, sand is lifted off the ground a second before the genie belches. (00:29:40)

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)
