Corrected entry: At the time of the break-in at Jim's house, Edward is wearing dark clothes and a cap unlike what he can be seen wearing at other times throughout the film. He has previously demonstrated an inability to dress himself, and with this in mind it is strange that everybody assumes that he committed the burglary by himself.
Corrected entry: Near the end of the film when Edward is carving ice sculptures in his castle, the camera pans close to one of them, making it very obvious that it is made of hollow clear plastic. The use of a fan (though not actually visible) to blow the "ice shavings" out the window is also quite evident. (01:35:05)
Corrected entry: After the neighbors hurry towards the mansion, Kim is left behind and hears gunshots. The police leave and the whole neighborhood begins to walk up the hill to the mansion to investigate themselves what happened to Edward. The next shot shows Kim running up the vicinity of the mansion to find him herself. How did she get up there so quickly?
Corrected entry: When Edward runs his scissor hands over the inventor's face, there is only a little blood, but when we see the blades, they are covered in blood and both sharp sides of a pair of scissors are bloody, which is impossible if he had just run the blades over his skin. He would have had to be cutting to get that effect.
Corrected entry: Just before Edward runs his scissor hands over the inventor's face, look closely at the blades. They already have blood on them.
Corrected entry: When Edward is cutting the woman's hair, his hands are on the back of her head, but it is obvious that his scissor hands are not touching her head.
Corrected entry: Near the end, Edward cuts the Inventor's face. But in the opening credits, you see the dead inventor lying on the floor with no scar.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Edward is cutting a dog for the first time, we can clearly see that the dog is a sort of fat and is a shaggy type dog, however, when the dog runs to the owner after it is cut and fancy looking, we can see that the dog is all of a sudden skinny and looks like a poddle type dog.
Corrected entry: After Edward's rampage through town, he sits on a curb, and a shaggy dog approaches him waiting for a haircut. Edward snips the hair away from the dog's eyes in a closeup shot, yet in the next shot there is no fur on the ground.
Corrected entry: When Edward is cutting Joyce's hair on the lawn, there are clouds in the background. But when we see closer shots of Edward's face, the sky is completely blue. Also, the clouds change dramatically from shot to shot.
Corrected entry: When Peg gets into her car, she adjusts the side view mirror. The mirror is mounted inside a one-piece housing, meaning the outside housing can't be moved. When the camera does a close up on her hand to look in the mirror, she moves the whole mirror, meaning that there were two mirror set ups used.
Corrected entry: When Edward is cutting the hair of Joyce's dog, you get a low angle shot of Edward's face and at the bottom of the screen you can see the edge of the table, but there is no dog on the table.
Corrected entry: The entire neighborhood is supposed to have bright "Easter-colored" houses (as part of Tim Burton's artistic look), however, when all the husbands in the neighborhood get in their cars to go to work, in the top right hand corner of the screen, you can see plain looking houses.
Corrected entry: When Edward first sees the water bed, he pokes a hole in it, but later that night, there isn't a hole.
