Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

New this month Other mistake: Near the beginning, when the Dursleys' house begins shaking, none of the objects fall nor do the curtains shake.

Add time

Other mistake: When Harry, Ron and Hermione rush to Hagrid after the end of the year exams, and Harry is saying something that ends with, "Why didn't I see it before?", Hermione is mouthing part of that line.

Other mistake: When Harry receives his first letter in the mail, Dudley snatches it from him before he has a chance to open it. Then he gives it to his father (Uncle Vernon), and Uncle Vernon says "Who'd be writing to you?" If you watch Dudley carefully, you can see him mouth what Uncle Vernon is saying.

Other mistake: During the Quidditch match, when Hermione and Ron are talking, they mouth each other's lines.

Other mistake: In the Quidditch scene when Harry and the Slytherin seeker are chasing the snitch and are trying to bump each other off course you can see Hogwarts in the background. They pass Hogwarts twice while going the same direction.

Other mistake: During the Quidditch match, Hermione looks in her binoculars up to where Harry is. If you look at the reflection in the binoculars you can see Harry flailing around. She then looks over at Snape, but when we see the reflection in the binoculars we still see Harry, as if she were looking up towards him.

Other mistake: When Neville flies away but falls off it is obviously animated. When he falls behind the crowd of students they are covering up Matthew Lewis, the actor who plays Neville, but the place where Lewis and the animated Neville fell are different.

Other mistake: During Neville's ill-fated flying lesson, as he approaches the statue from behind, we see that the statue is placed atop a round turret with alternating levels of bricks around the top of the turret. Neville's robe then snags on the spear of the statue. When we see the front of the statue as Neville falls, the statue is now standing atop a flat, level section of wall.

Other mistake: When Harry, Ron, and Hermione go after the Philosopher's Stone, the harp stops playing. They look up at the dog, but its shadow is cast on the ceiling above them as well as on top of them. This shows there were lights behind the 3.

xx:xx:xx

Other mistake: In the scene where Ron and Harry are on the train to Hogwarts, the window to the compartment is open. We know this because the chocolate frog jumps out the window and is swept away by a pretty strong wind. Since the window is indeed open, shouldn't there be a visible breeze thoughout the compartment?

xx:xx:xx

Other mistake: In the scene near the end of the movie where Harry boards Hogwarts Express to go home, Hagrid stands on the platform and waves goodbye. He is wearing a coat and looks huge, as usual, but you can see when he waves, that his hand seems rather small compared to the rest of his huge frame.

xx:xx:xx

Other mistake: While Harry is sitting on the troll's shoulders, the troll grabs Harry's right leg and pulls him off, but in the next shot the troll now has Harry hanging upside-down by his left leg.

xx:xx:xx

Super Grover

Other mistake: Percy Weasley is obviously talking to the Gryffindor first years when they first enter the Gryffindor common room, but there are too many first years. There are 5 boys and 5 girls in each dormitory, so 10 first years in each house, but in the shot there are obviously almost 20 students there, not including Percy.

Quotes

Albus Dumbledore: Ah, Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans. I was most unfortunate in my youth to come across a vomit flavoured one. I must say since then I have lost my liking for them. But I think...it might be safe...to have a nice toffee. [He has a bean.] Alas. Earwax.

Mistakes

During the Quidditch match Harry's broomstick tries to shake him off, due to the spell. After Hermione tells Ron, "Leave it to me," in Harry's last close-up before he flips over, the seat that is attached to the broomstick, to make it more comfortable for Dan Radcliffe to sit on, is entirely visible. Glimpses of other seats can be had during the match as well.

Trivia

For anyone who hasn't read the book: The inscription on top of the Mirror of Erised says "erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru oyt on wohsi". If you read the inscription backwards it says "I show not your face but your heart's desire".
