Other mistake: The scare leaderboard shows scarers by their surnames, except Randall, who is shown by his first name only.

Continuity mistake: When Sully and Mike are practising, their chairs are switched. Sully's is on the right Mike's is the left. When they sit to watch the commercial, they are switched back.


Continuity mistake: When we first see Waternoose, he says a single touch of a child could kill them. A yellow guy throws his pencil and pad forwards out of his hands. When Waternoose walks over to the three people, the pencil and pad has moved to the right of the yellow guy without ever being touched.

Casual Person

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.

Continuity mistake: When Mike is performing his standup routine in a boy's room near the end of the film, his eye quickly switches from green to blue, and then back to green right before he says "your room."

Continuity mistake: When they go to the Scare Floor to put Boo back in her door, Mike swipes the card key and the numbers "240492" appear on screen. In the next shot, the numbers on screen are now "43496". (00:39:10)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: In the apartment, Sulley leaves a trail of Kreature Krisp for Boo to follow. The first one he places is white, which becomes green in the next shot. It's obviously the same one in both shots because of its position in the doorway. (00:31:00)

Casual Person

Plot hole: When Sully and Mike are talking in the toilets, during Boo and Sully's Hide and Seek game, Boo comes running in screaming and upset because she's just seen Randall, and he's not too far behind since all three can hear him talking offscreen to the CDA before entering the toilets, but how did Boo get to Sully faster than Randall without him seeing her, and how did Randall not hear her screams since they're all in the changing rooms which have an echo?

Continuity mistake: Two people put an employee of the month picture of Mike and Sulley on the wall. The photo is noticeably crooked. In the shots of the two people talking to Mike and Sulley, the photo is correctly positioned without being touched.

Casual Person

Boo: Mike Waszowski.

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.
