The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When Peter has just seen MJ leave her house for school and is walking along the pavement by the cars following her, he stops when she does and practises talking to her. Look behind him. You can see the bus turning the corner and coming nearer to them. The shot stays on Peter when the bus rounds the corner, cuts to Mary Jane and then goes back to Peter. The bus would have been much nearer than it was in the second shot at the speed it's going. (00:20:00)

Then in the next shot from further away his hands are back by his head. (01:49:10)

Continuity mistake: In the middle of the film when we see Peter, Harry and Norman Osborn talking, Norman says "Perhaps you could tell me who she is, this mystery girl Harry's been dating" If you watch Harry, in one shot he has both arms on the table and in the following shot, he is one arm up and is scratching his head. (00:57:35)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When we see Norman Osborn testing out the formula with the other doctor, Norman comes back to life and grabs the other doctor, in the first shot from the front when he grabs him, his fingers and knuckles are straight against the doctors neck, yet from the back we see now its more of a fist. (00:16:50)

Continuity mistake: At the Unity Festival, when the Green Goblin flies past on the glider, the camera cuts to a shot of the balcony, and behind Harry and MJ there is a man in a black suit that takes a picture (you can see the flash from the camera). But when the camera cuts to a close up, the camera that was in his right hand has vanished and is now a glass of wine. (01:03:40)

More trivia for Spider-Man

Question: When Aunt May says to Peter in the hospital, "Everyone else knows", why does Peter suddenly look scared/concerned?

Answer: Remember that Green Goblin (Norman Osborne) just found out that Peter Parker is Spider-Man. Aunt May's comment about everyone knows he loves Mary-Jane concerns him because he now realizes that Green Goblin might find/kidnap Mary-Jane just to lure Spider-Man into a fight. This is the basis for the whole reason he can't be with her, as he would be potentially putting her in harm's way all the time if they got together.
