Continuity mistake: When Jade and Jesse begin making out in the car, Jade is climbing into the backseat with both her hands around Jesse. When it cuts, Jade has her right hand on the driver's seat. (00:08:05)

Continuity mistake: When Tiffany is talking with the gothic guy that has Chucky on his stomach, you can see Chucky's eyes change position. First they look at Tiffany then they look straight forward. (00:16:00)

Other mistake: When Tiff picks up Chucky to throw him into the crib, you can tell that the Chucky doll is inactive and not on or alive. (00:21:20)

Continuity mistake: When Tiffany puts the doll dressed like a bride in the cage with Chucky, she throws a handful of rice in Chucky's face and most of it falls off, but the next time we see Chucky a lot of rice is sticking on his face. (00:27:05)

Other mistake: In the beginning, when Tiffany has just had her soul put into the bride doll, she is reading the "Voodoo for Dummies" book and Chucky tells her that the page she is looking for is in Chapter Six, page 217. When she flips to it, the camera shows the top of the page before panning downwards. On the top of the page it very clearly says "Chapter Eleven". (00:31:45)

Deliberate mistake: When Tiff (as a doll) lights her Zippo you don't see her clicking the flint, even though one can hear a 'clicking' sound. (00:33:35)

Continuity mistake: When Warren gets nailed, his face is contorted in a certain way. When the kids are leaving his house, his face is shown again and the contortion is very different. (00:41:15)

Knever

Continuity mistake: When Russ is lying down on the honeymoon bed you see him lying on his stomach. When the shot changes he is lying on his side with his legs crossed. (00:53:40)

Mortug

Revealing mistake: When the gay friend finds the dead chief in the van, he gets out and runs in front of a lorry. Watch closely and you'll see the blood starts flying before he has even disappeared behind the truck. (01:04:05)

Revealing mistake: When they are all in the camper van Tiffany gives Chucky a biscuit then walks away from him, from the way she gave him the plate, they would have all fallen off. (01:07:35)

Plot hole: In the end of the film it is heard the police want to exhume the body of Charles Lee Ray from his grave site in New Jersey. Now when Chucky and the crew get to the grave site they find and kill a coroner who is digging up the body. He is the only one there at 1am, by himself, a lonely coroner without any police officers, after all this is a police investigation and I doubt the cops would have him there alone. Then right at the end the Detective who is hunting them arrives. Now he is a cop from Lockport, about six states away. A. Why did he drive all that way to see the body? B. A cop from all the way down there shows up but no new Jersey cops are at the scene?

Continuity mistake: When Chucky kills the coroner there is a generous amount of blood splashing on the gravestone. But in the next shot we can see that he is standing next to the gravestone. Chucky shot the coroner in the back of the head since he was looking in the other direction and is falling on his face, so there should be no blood on the gravestone.

Continuity mistake: Jade is in the grave when she throws the amulet to Chucky. Seconds later, after Jesse shows up, it cuts to her standing out of the grave, but she wouldn't have had time to climb out yet.

Continuity mistake: Just after Chucky blows up Needlenose's cop car a bonnet or something flies off. In the next frame someone is in the payphone then a fraction of a second later they are outside it running away about three feet from the payphone as it disintegrates.

Continuity mistake: In the first film, when Charles Lee Ray died and the Police Officer found him, his eyes were open, his mouth closed, his face clean, clothes in perfect condition, and head staring straight up into the sky. When Chucky holds up the picture of him dead in this one, his eyes are shut, his mouth is open (and there's blood coming out of it), his face is dirty and facing to the side, he's missing parts of his clothing (e.g. his tie), and his shirt is now wide open. His body is still in the same place it's was when he died, because the floor is the same, and there's doll boxes around him.

Plot hole: When Tiffany locks Chucky in the wooden cage, (The "Nursery" she calls it) you can see her lock the top. The problem is that the lock is put on in such a way that it would not actually keep Chucky in the cage. It is on the top of the cage, but doesn't connect with the cage at any other part. It simply wouldn't work.

More quotes from Bride of Chucky

Trivia: The decision to turn the Child's Play/Chucky franchise from a slasher-horror to a dark comedy series was inspired by several factors. In addition to 1996's meta horror-satire "Scream" making self-aware horror-comedies popular, series creator Don Mancini also felt that by the time "Child's Play 3" had come out, Chucky had become such a pop culture icon, he might never be properly "scary" ever again, since people were too familiar with him. And thus, in order to keep the series fresh, he and producer David Kirshner decided to make the fourth film more comedic and self-aware in tone.

More trivia for Bride of Chucky

Question: It was discovered that Chucky was able to transfer his soul into Andy's Good Guy in the first movie by not only saying a chant but also using a magic amulet. So why, in the other three movies, when he is starting the chant does he not need the amulet to transfer his soul out of the doll into someone else, but in this movie, he needs to use it if he wants to return to his own body?

Answer: There's two possible explanations. First, and the most likely, is that this is simply what's referred to as a "retcon." (Short for "Retroactive Continuity") A term to describe new information/rules/backstory/etc. that are introduced in order to alter the path of a story, or impose new ideas into a narrative. In this case, the series creator and writer Don Mancini needed a reason for the characters to go on a road-trip, hence he created this new idea for an amulet that Chucky need to obtain. And basically, Mancini himself has admitted that he will often change the rules for the series as needed from film to film based on the story he wants to tell, which makes this the more plausible explanation. The second possible explanation is that you could argue that the amulet will allow Chucky to transfer his soul regardless of how long he's been in the doll's body, surpassing the time limit imposed in previous films. But in all seriousness, the former is the more likely explanation. They just needed a new story-element to justify the road-trip aspect of the story.
