Kim Possible

Character mistake: It's merely training, but her opponents are hostile and want to exclude her from playing, so it's funny then that they don't call Kim out for her actions being egregious fouls; she brings the ball trapping it between her feet in multiple cartwheels (you can't just hold the ball between your feet for prolonged amount of times and 'carry' it). You could also say she kicks the ball at an opponent's face on purpose, which is equally unsporting. (00:24:00)

Continuity mistake: Kim's mom is setting the breakfast table. She dodges the drone once as she has two bowls in hand, and when the drone charges at her again she is already pouring cereals from the box in one. Moreover, the drone in the POV hits the box when she is holding chest - high, but in the following shot Alyson Hannigan is holding the box higher. (00:08:55)

Continuity mistake: Dementor is dissolving the Earth globe with the black slime; during the scene the shadows on the table keep changing. In particular there's a large round shadow floating over the goo roughly matching his head movement when he asks why it turned pink and sparkly, totally gone in close-up. (00:03:10)

Continuity mistake: Kim picks up the papers Athena had in her bag, of course by cartwheeling. The papers are different from one shot to the other, though; the closest one to the purple bag was a series of sheets pinched together and folded up irregularly, but they are much more neat when she grabs them, not to mention, closer to the bag itself.

Continuity mistake: In the fast food scene, in some shots the 3 drink cups are aligned in a group of 3, in others they are scattered in different parts of the table. And especially during the surreal conversation when Dog says he wants to be a dog when he grows up, the straws in the drinks change; they are bent at a roughly 45° angle at first, and parallel, but then switch to different angles. When Athena starts barking, one points up and one points down. (00:29:25 - 00:31:15)

Continuity mistake: Athena shows Kim the cosplay pic she took at Comicon, with the dog posing as Ron. Kim's hands are touching (or hovering by) the phone in the wider angle but not in the close-up. Similarly, when a few moments later she says "I didn't really have any friends" etc, the phone switches from her left hand to the right between shots. (00:30:25)

Continuity mistake: Establishing shot of the soccer field, all the team is in front of Kim. The last row of players has the rightmost one well on the outside of the second row, but in the view with camera in front of Bonnie, the squad is compacted to be in frame, the player in question now being behind the very tall rightmost player in the second row. (00:23:25)

Continuity mistake: On the ramp fighting Dementor's goons while Ron is working on freeing up the doc, Kim disposes of the first two with an armdrag. The way they land is incoherent with what is shown during the sequence when she drags a third towards her with the hook, as the downed opponents keep changing position and even the direction they face. (00:04:45)

Continuity mistake: After the fiasco that gets Athena super-popular, she is talking with Bonnie. When she says goodbye to sit at Kim's table, people on the background appear between shots (such as the black guy who was a shot earlier to the right of the frame, and suddenly is to the left). (00:51:45)

Continuity mistake: When Kim receives the kickoff ball from Bonnie, her ponytail is in front of her shoulder, as opposed to being behind her back in the following shots. Same switch happens when Ron squeaks "Let's go KP!", you can see the different position during the split screen. (00:23:30)

Continuity mistake: When Kim starts doing cartwheels with the ball between her feet, all the girls that were relatively close suddenly become much more distant (otherwise, since it's such a dumb and unpractical move, they would have caught up on her pretty immediately). (00:24:10)

Continuity mistake: Drakken is in the lair with Shego. As he says "we used to have our own entire island and now we're squatting in a pile of garbage", Shego has her arm first lowered along her side, then raised all of a sudden, and back to lowered. (00:21:25)

Continuity mistake: Kim taps the Kimmunicator in a close-up; the hair is draped over both shoulders, in front of the right one her red hair flows all the way down her chest. When she is shown talking with Wade, her hair is out of the way. (00:02:40)

Continuity mistake: Carrying the sports laundry and equipment, Kim stumbles upon a girl who is crying. In the first shot when Athena is talking to her mom her right hand is down her hip, which becomes right on her hip in the next shot. (00:28:15)

Continuity mistake: Kim uses her laser lipstick to carve a hole in the skylight of Drakken's lair. You can see her trace a mostly regular arc, almost perfect in the 3-6 quadrant, but in the reverse shot, that part of the cut is all bumpy. (01:09:25)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, the content spilled by the barrel of chemicals tipped by Ron catches fire; the position of that drum as Ron runs off is entirely different from what happens when the ignition is shown. (00:02:25)

Sammo Premium member

Revealing mistake: Ron leans against a barrel and sets in motion a series of events leading to an explosion. For being able to tip it with such a modest push, it is obvious it was empty (confirmed also by how it bounces). (00:02:20)

Continuity mistake: Ron falls on the guys that are trying to push Kim off the bridge; in the first close-up of his crazy impact he loses his helmet, but in the wider angle the stuntman seen from behind is still wearing it. (00:01:55)

Continuity mistake: Kim is 'appointed' equipment manager, and a big laundry basket is placed in front of her. Between wider angle and close-up the white sock is in the corner moves from the longer side to the shorter. (00:25:05)

Continuity mistake: Athena just showed up with her new look. Ron says "It's extra you" to Kim, and she laughs. Her hair is styled differently than in the rest of the scene, in front of just one shoulder and not both. (00:37:50)

Trivia: When Kim throws a henchman over the railings onto Professor Dementor, the henchman lets out a Wilhelm scream.
