Edward Scissorhands

Plot hole: At the end of the film, we see Edward carving ice sculptures in his mansion. How did he get the ice up there? First of all, it takes place in a warm climate and I didn't see a freezer up there in the castle. He couldn't have gotten ice from town because firstly he had scissors for hands and couldn't have gripped the ice. And, even if by some miracle he could, he wouldn't be able to buy any from town because everyone in town but Kim was convinced that Edward was dead, she told everyone that they killed each other. And Kim didn't bring it to him because she told her granddaughter in the end that she never saw him again after that night. So where did he get that ice?

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Winona is running into the mansion and up the steps, right before the shot changes, you can see what looks like part of the crew on the left banister by the bottom of the window.

Edward Scissorhands mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Kim is watching Edward cut the roses, in closeups she's quite close to the curtain, and it's hanging straight down. In the wide shot she's slightly further away, and the curtain is angled outwards because she's holding it back with her hand.

Continuity mistake: At the "bed time story" scene, the granddaughter of older Kim is covered all the way to her neck. A couple of shots after, she's suddenly covered just below her chest.

Dr Wilson

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Edward is giving dogs haircuts, we see he has a table, the table switches between one and two tables between shots. When we see a diagonal view of Edwards face, the table is in two, otherwise, it's one table.

Continuity mistake: All thoughout the movie, the scars on Edward's face keep moving and changing sizes and depth.

Plot hole: When Edward gets locked in the room at Jim's house after the security alarm goes off, the police deactivate the system and the door unlocks. But how does he get out of the room? The door opens inward, so he couldn't have pushed it open, and he cannot turn the knob to let himself out.

Continuity mistake: Edward stabs Jim and crashes him through the large attic window. Eight smaller window sections remain at the top of the opening, two rows of four small windows. All the outside shots (looking up at Edward and Kim) show the two lower left windows broken out, from the inside all eight windows are intact.

Continuity mistake: When Edward pushes Jim out the window, he stabs him in the stomach first. When Jim is backing toward the window, we can see a rip in his shirt where he was stabbed, but when his body is on the ground, there is no rip and the blood is much higher than where he was stabbed.

Continuity mistake: When Edward eats at Kim's house for the first time his lips have makeup only on the middle, to make his mouth look smaller. On further shots throughout the movie his lips are fully painted and his mouth looks normal size.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film, the Avon lady is at a customer's door. In back shots a piece of her hair on the right is loose and looking messy. On front shots it's straight.

Continuity mistake: Many of the bush sculptures that Edward creates in the neighborhood are significantly taller than the original shrubberies.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Kim comes home early from the camping trip, Edward is startled and begins stabbing the water bed, thus causing it to spring many leaks. If you actually look at the bed, it isn't jiggling like a water bed should and the water is just spraying out even in places he isn't stabbing.

Continuity mistake: When Edward saves Kevin from getting run over, he cuts his cheek. The blood disappears from his face after Jim gets out of the van and the camera goes back to Edward and Kevin.
