Corrected entry: In the scene where Peter and his class are on the field trip, the female scientist begins talking about the different types of spiders. Two spiders change position. The first one we see is on the side of the glass, as if it's trying to climb up, then when Pete is about to take its picture, it's suddenly resting on the floor of the case. The second one is sitting on its web and when the camera returns, the spider has webbed up three mice and is in the process of lifting them up.
Corrected entry: When Peter and Aunt May enter the house after the graduation ceremony, it sounds like Aunt May calls Peter 'Phillip'.
Corrected entry: Watch the spinning razor blade that goes off to the left when Goblin attacks Spidey in the burning building. Spidey dodges it, and it shoots off to the left - and totally disappears.
Corrected entry: When the students visit the lab with the genetically altered spiders, the female scientist says spiders belong to the Class Aranae. Actually, Aranae is the Family, and spiders belong to either the Class Arachnida or the Class Chelicerata, depending on which classification you use. This is a huge error - 'family' and 'class' are very specific taxonomic terms which no real geneticist would ever mix up or use interchangeably. (00:06:15)
Corrected entry: In the wrestling scene, the cage is ceremoniously locked. As soon as Peter defeats Bonesaw, the cage is raised and the sides separate. How did it get unlocked so fast?
Corrected entry: During the scene on the roof after the Green Goblin knocks Spider-Man out at the bugle, you see the Goblin talking to Spider-Man. When Spider-Man first wakes up and the camera pans to the Goblin, you see him open his yellow eye shields. Then, when the camera shows a close-up of the Goblin talking to Spider-Man, you can clearly see that his eye shields are closed. Then when the Goblin leaves Spider-Man to think about joining him, his eye shields are open and he closes them and takes off.
Corrected entry: When you first see the cable car (at the end) it says Universal Pictures. When you see the car the second time, it says Roosevelt Line.
Corrected entry: During the end sequence, Spider-Man originally did his final swing through the World Trade Center towers, landing on top of the tower with a flagpole on top. This was changed after September 11th so that he lands on the Empire State Building instead. However, during the pan around him after the landing, you can still see the Empire State Building, which he just landed on, in the background!
Corrected entry: When Peter gets out of the car when Ben gives him a lift, we see there is a bit of his costume sticking out under his shirt, but when we see him a second later, the costume can't be seen.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, when Peter is chasing after the school bus you can clearly see a bridge ahead of the bus. But neither the bus, nor Parker, go under the bridge.
Corrected entry: If the Green Goblin had the capability to build radiation bombs (like the one that incinerated the board members on the balcony in a split second), then why did he bother using anything else when fighting Spidey? He could have killed Spidey instantly anytime he wanted if he had those bombs.
Corrected entry: When Spider-Man chases his Uncle's murderer into the old building, Spider-Man sneaks up on him and smashes his head through the two glass windows in a door. Spider-Man smashes his head in one. But if you look when he smashes the killer's head through the second window, it's the exact same shot.
Corrected entry: During the movie, Peter acquires a "spider sense" that warns him of danger even if he doesn't see it himself. In the apartment fire scene the Green Goblin disguises himself as a woman with a blanket to surprise Spider-man, every one in the cinema can easily see it is the Goblin thanks to the shape of the blanket over the awkward pointy mask, Spider-man even reaches out for the "woman" and nearly taps her in the shoulder yet the spider sense never goes off.
Corrected entry: In the building fire, there are 2 windows still intact at Spider-Man's arrival. He busts out one by swinging through it, and when he leaves with the child there is an explosion which blows out the other window. Thus no windows should remain intact. But, when Spider-Man goes back into the building to rescue "the woman" (Green Goblin) he smashes through another window.
Corrected entry: Peter Parker use a manual focus, manual wind camera throughout the film, yet in the sequence where he photographs himself as spider-man, the camera happily auto-winds and auto-focuses.
Corrected entry: When Spider-man jumps on his uncle's car chasing the dude who shot his uncle, Spidey punches through the roof. Later, when the car crashes, there's no more hole.
