The Witches

Other mistake: When the evil witches get their just desserts, Lois Leffour's friend Julia Whitman is choking on the Formula 86 bottle. Even though the bottle is small, Julia should have either seen it on the spoon, or felt it when she put it in her mouth. Instead, Julia swallows the bottle and coughs it up during her transformation into a mouse.

Other mistake: When the Grand High Witch, the Woman in Black, and the other witches are counting down the seconds for Bruno's transformation, Luke temporarily steps out from behind the screen. Yet none of the witches in the front row notice him.

Other mistake: Before the Grand High Witch starts the meeting, Luke is watching the witches sit down, and he doesn't recognize the Woman in Black. This doesn't make sense because the Woman in Black attempted to kill him during the treehouse scene before any of them arrived at the hotel. The Woman in Black is even the first witch who tries to capture him when he runs on the stage.

Visible crew/equipment: When the baby in the baby stroller is rolling down the cliff hills, a safety wire attached to it is briefly visible, as Luke chases after it.
