Monsters, Inc.

Audio problem: When we see Mike during the slumber party, we hear seven bells ring for the seven filled cylinders, but there are only six cylinder-filling noises. (00:16:50)

Audio problem: When Mike and Sulley walk through Monstropolis, Mike goes to his car. An automatic unlocking sound from the car, but the keys Mike is shown holding appear to be the keys one would use to manually unlock the door. (00:07:20)

Suggested correction: Monstropolis is shown to have many things that operate differently from the real world. It isn't such a stretch to consider that car keys work differently as well.

Audio problem: Jerry counts down from seven. When he has to say one his mouth opens, but he doesn't actually say one. (00:14:38)

Especially when filming something like this, so the numbers aren't accidentally recorded.

Deliberate mistake: When Boo laughs repeatedly while playing hide-n-seek with Sully in the men's room, nothing happens to the electricity - no surges as with all other times she laughs. [In the audio commentary by the directors, they explained that it would've been distracting if an energy surge occurred every time Boo laughed, so they simply didn't address the issue. A reasonable course of action, but still a mistake.] (00:37:30)

Henry J. Waternoose: There's nothing more toxic or deadly than a human child. A single touch could kill you. Leave a door open, and one can walk right into this factory; right into the monster world.
Trainee: I won't go into a kid's room. You can't make me.
Henry J. Waternoose: You're going in there, because we need this. Our city is counting on you to collect those screams. Without scream, we have no power. Yes, it's dangerous work, and that's why I need you to be at your best. I need scarers who are confident, tenacious, tough, intimidating. I need scarers like... like... James P. Sullivan.

Trivia: Mike and Celia have dinner at Harryhausen's. This is a tip of the hat to Ray Harryhausen, the great stop-motion animator.

Question: At the end of the movie, Fungus is seen amongst the employees promoting doing fun stuff, but since he is seen assisting Randall, and generally helping him and Waternoose with the scream machine earlier on, shouldn't he have been banished (like Randall) or hauled off by the CDA (like Waternoose) when the whole plan came to the CDA's attention?

Answer: Fungus was an unwilling lackey, not a co-conspirator.
