Spider-Man mistake picture

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)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When Norman Osborn finds out he is the green goblin from his mirror reflection, watch closely at his hair in the reflection and the real him, his hair in his reflection has a thick strand of hair hanging over his fringe, and the actual him, has his hair without any parts hanging over his fringe. It changes about three quarters of the way through the scene. (01:13:35)

Continuity mistake: After Uncle Ben dies and Peter takes off down the alleyway there is an obvious cut to a green screen. His hair was flowing in the air, then becomes suddenly flat with no wind passing. (00:42:50)

Continuity mistake: Close to the end of the film when the Green Goblin bursts in the window of Aunt May's house, in one shot you can see she is leaning by the side of the bed, and in all other shots she has her head on the bed. (01:27:05)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: In the big carnival scene when the Green Goblin has thrown a bomb at the balcony the shot cuts to Peter and he sees two people about to get crushed by a falling rock. If you slow it down you can see that they are facing Peter with the woman on the right and the man on the left. The shot changes and they have there backs to Peter and the woman is now on the left, the man on the right. (01:04:15)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When Norman Osbourne is in the tank, there is a close up on him at one point, and he has an expression of despair and fear on his face. But in the next shot, a wide one showing the green gas filling the chamber, Norman has a completely different look on his face. (00:16:35)

Continuity mistake: In the end sequence between Peter and Mary Jane by Uncle Ben's grave, as the camera switches perspectives, there's a wayward lock of Peter's hair that disappears then reappears in different shots. (01:49:20)

Continuity mistake: When fighting the Carjacker, Peter dropkicks him using a pipe. When Peter does this, the Carjacker has his cap on as he moves out of frame. When moving into the next shot, the Carjacker no longer has his hat, which now disappeared into thin air, never to be seen again. (00:47:50)

Continuity mistake: In the Thanksgiving scene where they are waiting for Peter to arrive, Peter swings onto the side of the building and drops down onto the balcony of his bedroom. To soften the drop onto the balcony, he bends his knees. When he unbends them and takes off his mask (the next shot) he is in the center of his bedroom, not on the balcony where he landed in the shot previous. (01:25:50)

Continuity mistake: When Peter is taking out the trash, and MJ walks out and says, "Were you listening to that?". Watch Peter as he turns around to look at MJ twice. (00:27:40)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When Peter is talking to Mary Jane in front of the diner, a light maroon colored caddy passes by twice. The first time when she says she just got off a job, the second when the boss shouts at her. Sure, there could be two cars the same color in NY, but with the same driver...? (00:55:15)

MCKD

Continuity mistake: When Peter catches up with Mary Jane outside the cafe, there is a motorcycle that passes by Mary Jane. When the camera cuts back to Peter there is no evidence of a motorcycle passing, not even a sound. (00:55:40)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film, when they are at Norman Osborn's funeral, just before and after they kiss, Peter's hair keeps changing.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film when the class is being shown around the museum, the class moves on. In the background a black guy with a red t-shirt and black overalls walks away. In the following shot of Peter's face, the same black guy walks off again. (00:08:45)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: After the wrestling match when Peter goes to collect his money only to receive 100 bucks, he argues with the guy, if you watch, the guys hand is on the money bills, yet in the following shot, his right arm as well as his hand are on the desk. (00:40:00)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: In the lab experiment scene, Osborn's pulse is tracked on a computer screen, which shows his pulse numerically, and graphically, and emits a 'beep' with each beat. When his pulse accelerates, the meter races higher, but the beeps, though fast, sound consistently at the same rate. (00:16:55)

Continuity mistake: After Mary Jane slips while carrying the food tray and the food is thrown into the air, the shot facing the ceiling showing the food falling shows the bowl of jello to hit first and the apple to hit last, while the next shot shows Peter catching the apple first and the bowl of jello last. (00:21:10)

Continuity mistake: When Jameson is talking to his coworker in his office, the other man holds out a paper. From one angle it's in his left hand, and from another angle it's in his right.
