Correction: The young man who played Razamataz is called Michael Jackson but he is not the same Michael Jackson of "Jackson 5" and "Thriller" fame. The Michael Jackson in "Bugsy Malone" has never knowingly acted before or since.

Corrected entry: At the start, when Roxy The Weasel takes the blind alley down Perito's bakery, a women starts yelling out of the window in a foriegn language. Once she has finished, she shuts the window, and - like magic - there is no pane of glass.

Correction: I watched this sequence time after time and can not see anything wrong with the window.

Corrected entry: All the vehicles used in this film are pedal powered, yet all of them use the sound effects of a petrol engine when it is obvious that none of the vehicles have engines fitted.

Correction: It's a joke, like the plane in "Airplane!" having a propeller noise despite being a jet.

Corrected entry: When Dandy Dan's gang are on their way to invade Fat Sam's, there are three cars. When the cars turn the corner look at the gun truck, the gun falls out of the man's (on the right) hand.

Correction: People drop things in real life, not a mistake.

Corrected entry: Moments after Babyface screams 'Geronimo', the guard at the door gives chase. In the following shot the guard is standing still. In the next shot he is again chasing Babyface.

Correction: The sequence looks like it is the same guard in all three shots, but in fact, it is 2 different guards. You can tell by the doors behind them.

Corrected entry: During the car chase, after Fat Sam meets with Dandy Dan in the woods, the tyres screech even though they are on dirt roads.

Correction: As corrected in other movies, it is possible to squeal tires on a dirt road, if it is hard packed under the loose stones, such as a clay-based dirt. I've done it myself, and surprised myself while doing so.

Revealing mistake: When Tallulah and the girls are acting in the Fat Sam's Grandslam song look at Tallulah as they sing the 'Ra da da da da da' bit. She looks straight into the camera.
