Continuity mistake: When Norman is getting ready to test himself, he lies down on the bed, fastens himself in and the doctor goes to the computer. However, when it shows him being brought in to the chamber he has several electrodes connected to his chest and head.

Continuity mistake: When Peter shoots his web at his bedroom lamp and pulls it across the room, it smashes against the wall and breaks. But when Aunt May is talking to Peter from the door seconds later, the lamp is back on the dresser in one piece.

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Mary Jane is being mugged by four men, Spider-Man throws two of the men into two windows behind Mary Jane. The shot switches to Spider-Man beating up the other two guys. When it cuts back to Mary Jane the two windows are intact.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: When Peter Parker first discovers he can climb up walls (while in citizen clothing), he tests it out by climbing up a building in an alley. During this scene, you can clearly see his clothes hanging out forwards, indicating that the scene was filmed with him crawling along a floor horizontally.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: The scene at Columbia University was filmed on an unseasonably warm spring day, however, the costume department had provided the high school extras with cold-weather clothing. The real Columbia University students can be seen in the background wearing shorts and t-shirts by contrast.

xx:xx:xx

Visible crew/equipment: When Spider-Man is rescuing Mary Jane from falling to her death from the balcony, he catches her and spins his web to the balcony to save her and they bungie to just inches from the ground. As they are preparing to bounce back up the shot rotates 90 degrees and you can see the counter weight that pulls them back up coming down to the ground. It's a weird one, this - there's a sound effect as the weight comes into view, so it's meant to be there (or else the sound's just a cover), but it can't be anything he attached his web to, as it was stuck straight onto the balcony. If it's falling, they should be too - his web's not pivoting around anything.

Continuity mistake: In the final battle, the blood on Spider-Man's chin and under his nose keeps disappearing and reappearing.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Spider-Man saves the baby from the burning building, it's amazing that the baby and the blanket are so clean - no soot, smoke damage, charring, etc. The firefighters have obvious soot around their noses from trying to breathe in that area. Did Spidey manage to give the baby a bath before presenting it to momma?

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Other mistake: When Jameson is flipping the pictures of Peter's first batch of photographs, you can see (in slow motion or if you have really good vision) that the 3rd picture he looks at changes into an entirely new photograph, when he puts it down. The one he's looking at is Spider-Man on the side of a building, but when it's on the desk it's Spider-Man kicking a thug in the face. The one he then looks at changes too - it was about to have a bit of sky on the left, but then turns into a photo of a street from above, with no sky visible.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Peter is talking with Mary Jane outside the diner where she works, watch the positioning of the shadows in the background. As the camera shoots from Peter's point-of-view, the sun is casting shadows up the street. When the shots change to MJ's point-of-view, the shadows are pointing down the street, as if the sun had just moved ahead several hours.

xx:xx:xx

Other mistake: When the tram with all the kids is falling, the kids are yelling. The adult behind them isn't yelling & looks bored.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Spider-Man is chasing the crook with the gun, the crook shoots 7 times through the roof of the car. Shortly afterwards you can see 9 bullet holes in an overhead shot. As the scene moves along there is another overhead shot (just after Spider-Man jumps the bridge) - no bullet holes. Seconds later the bullet holes return.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Peter first learns he can climb walls after running out of school, his shoes are different when he is on the wall compared to when he is on the roof.

xx:xx:xx

Factual error: When Harry is talking to Mary Jane on the phone, she hangs up on him and his cell phone produces a dial tone. Cell phones do not have a dial tone.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Peter Parker confronts Uncle Ben's killer in the warehouse, after Parker slams him through the glass windows in the door, the killer drops his gun and pulls out a knife. After he is disarmed of the knife, Peter kicks him up against the wall. At this point the killer has the gun back in his hand.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Peter is drawing up ideas for his costume the hand is that of comic artist Phil Jimenez, current artist of Wonder. Phil Jimenez is right handed and Tobey is left handed. In one of the cuts the pen is in Tobey's left hand but it shows him drawing with his right.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: During the kiss scene the camera changes view back and forth. From one angle it's raining, in other it is not, then at the end it's pouring as if in a storm. They had to do that scene at least 3 times.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the cafeteria scene, Mary Jane slips on some spilled orange juice that causes Peter to catch her. A short while later when Peter gets up to leave the cafeteria, running away from her enraged boyfriend, the spilled orange juice is not there.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the final cemetery sequence, Peter and Mary Jane square off for a little heart to heart, with her touching his face tenderly with her black leather gloves. The camera intercuts between front views of both: in hers, her fingers are touching his ear lobe, in his, they are a inch below his ear lobe. In one quick cut of hers, the hand has disappeared completely, then in mid-sentence as they cut back to Peter, it's there again.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Peter is taking out the trash, and begins talking to Mary Jane, as she walks toward him you can see her underwear sticking out above her pants. As the shots change, this underwear seems to appear and disappear.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: During the World Unity Festival, the Green Goblin seeks revenge upon his ex-coworkers. The Goblin throws a pumpkin bomb at them that makes them all disintegrate and disappear. One of his coworkers had a wheelchair with him, which survives the Goblin's bomb and remains on the balcony. (You can see the wheelchair while they are being bombed and after they disintegrate, all in the same shot.) For the rest of the scene, the wheelchair has disappeared from the balcony.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: During the World Unity Festival when the Goblin attacks, there is a shot of Peter tearing off his shirt exposing a costume that is low cut at the neck. However, in the scene when Spider-Man and Mary Jane kiss in the rain, the costume comes halfway up his neck.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Peter is talking to Mary Jane outside the diner, the same man is seen walking behind Peter 3 or 4 times - biggish man with a flat cap on. First when Peter says "so you're acting now?", then when he talks about Harry not living on earth, then again when Mary Jane walks off.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the World Unity Festival, as the balcony first collapses, a blond woman and a man are running to get out of the wreckage. But in the next shot, the same couple just stand under the falling balcony looking up and Peter uses webbing to pull the standing-still couple to safety.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the school cafeteria after Peter saves Mary Jane, he notices the fork that is stuck to his hand. If you look at the back of his hand, the spider bite is gone. In the next scene, it is back again.

xx:xx:xx

Other mistake: When the cable car is dropping and swinging around, the occupants of the cable car remain standing in the same position. They should have been thrown to the floor when the initial drop was halted, and should have been tossed from side to side in the car as it swung around.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Peter and Mary Jane are talking outside the diner, her trechcoat collar is first lying flat, then is tucked in, then is flat. It happens several times when the shot goes back and forth from Peter to Mary Jane.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Spider-Man is taking snapshots of the armored car burglary, one of the burglars says "watch the street". As the camera snaps you see them pointing rifles or machine guns towards the sky and when Spider-Man lands on them to dispatch them, the weapons are gone...

xx:xx:xx

Other mistake: After Spider-Man saves MJ after the World Unity Festival and is swinging quickly away, he is carrying her so that she is facing backwards. When we see a shot of MJ smiling, however, her hair is blowing very lightly in the direction they're heading.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Deliberate mistake: In the scene just before the final fight between the Goblin and Spider-Man, Spider-Man gets knocked through a wall and rolls right up against another wall, but when the bomb flies in as he's getting to his feet, he's suddenly in a much more open area with no wall anywhere near him.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Peter Parker runs into the alley and tests his wall-crawling for the first time, when he runs into the alley the wall he climbs is brick covered with dirty black soot/fungus. After he begins his climb it is completely brown.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Peter stands up after being bitten by the spider, there's the reflection of the cameraman with headphones on the television set behind him.

Dr Wilson
Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Peter Parker is chasing the school bus for the first time, the bus stops and it is entirely visible that there is nothing in front of the bus. When the camera is switched to the inside of the bus to show Peter stepping inside to apologize to the bus-driver, however, a tractor-trailer suddenly appears only yards from the front of the bus (visible through the windshield). Some road markings also appear.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Other mistake: When Peter is jumping from building to building after he first learns he has powers, you can see that he is jumping over the same alley over and over, only taken at different angles. The clotheslines (and the shadow of them on the wall) is a good pointer.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When talks to Mary Jane on the cell phone, it's already been mentioned that cell phones don't have dial tones, but additionally, if we couldn't hear Mary Jane actually talking, it wouldn't make sense to hear her hang up either.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Peter wakes up and discovers he can't see through his glasses, you can see a phantom hand on the left sliding out of view in the mirror. This happens the last time Peter tries to see through his glasses. It's not a reflection of his hand due to the angled edge - it's on the main part of the mirror.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: Jameson is sitting in his office when another man bursts through the door. Jameson jumps and turns to look at him twice- first in the wide shot, and again in his closeup.

Krista

Continuity mistake: After Peter punches Flash in the guts during the Flash/Peter hallway fight scene, in Mary Jane's closeup she looks surprised, and behind her on her right is a surprised guy wearing glasses. After Flash's friend says "Jesus Parker, you are a freak," and Harry says "Wow, that was amazing", the same guy suddenly appears on Mary Jane's left, looking happy and clapping. It cuts to a closeup of Mary Jane and the same guy appears back on Mary Jane's right, looking somewhat surprised again.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Other mistake: During the shots of newspapers with articles about Spider-Man, if you look closely at the shot of the newspaper article just before the shot of Spider-Man putting on his mask, the second column is repeated in the fourth column - easiest to spot is "NYPD spokesperson, Sean Young..." appears twice.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the cafeteria Peter web-slings a tray, with hardly any corn on the plate. Then Peter flips it onto Flash and suddenly there's a whole lot of corn on his back.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: At the end when Spider-Man dumps the brick wall on the Green Goblin, the wall is still in one piece after it's landed in the long shot, but when the angle changes, the wall's almost destroyed, and the Goblin pushes his hand up through rubble.

xx:xx:xx

Visible crew/equipment: When Mary Jane is on the balcony at the Oscorp Festival and the Green Goblin causes part of it to start falling apart, the wires and chords causing the balcony to fall down and pull back up can be seen.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: During the bridge scene the wire supporting the tram/cable car was obviously anchored on the other end when the Green Goblin was holding it, because the car's suspended on a near horizontal line, with the regular support at one end and the Goblin on the other. All well and good, and even after Spider-Man grabs Mary Jane we see the car drop with the wire still looped through the pulley, both ends visible. In the next shot from above though, the other end of the wire's disappeared, and the car's now just hanging off a single cable which is attached to the top of the car. How'd that happen?

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When MJ kisses Peter in the cemetery, his head is leaning towards his left, and in the next shot, his head is leaning towards his right.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: Flash attacks Peter in the school's hallway. We are supposed to witness Peter's incredible speed in one shot, as he dodges a punch in slow motion. Flash's bracelet, however, is motionless. The speed of the punch would throw it back and forth, as it does throughout the rest of the scene.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Peter accidentally flings the tray of food on Flash it hits him on the left shoulder but when Flash stands up the stain temporarily jumps over to his right shoulder.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Peter is trying to talk to Mary in the cafeteria you can see behind where he is standing there are numerous people and tables between him and the back wall. Peter then sits down and in the very next shot his table is one table away from the wall behind him. The shot may be lower but is from the same angle as before.

xx:xx:xx

Lummie

Continuity mistake: In the final fight scene between Green Goblin and Spider-Man, the damaged eyepiece over Spider-Man's left eye keeps changing its damage pattern between shots.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: After rescuing Mary Jane and leaving her at the church, Spider-Man apparently uses a trampoline to jump off the ledge - he jumps up onto something before springing off. Mary Jane then runs forward and clambers around something to get close to the edge.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: When the Green Goblin attacks J. Jonah Jameson at the office, Spider-Man shows up. Goblin turns his glider to face his nemesis. If you look closely, you can tell that it is a rotating rig, and that the film was sped up. Goblin's body shifts abruptly while he turns, and the fire in the background is moving too quickly to be at normal speed.

xx:xx:xx

Audio problem: When Mary Jane is about to fall from the balcony and the Green Goblin appears in front of her, we hear him say, "Hello, my dear," but his mouth is not in sync with those words.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Mary Jane and Peter are talking in the street right after she left the diner, every time a car passes by behind her and then the camera goes to Peter, those cars would mysteriously vanish since you can clearly see that there are no moving vehicles behind him.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In Jameson's office you can see a building across the street through the window, but when Spider-Man is gassed and falls out, a shot from the street shows Spider-Man falling from an extremely high building that has no other buildings near it.

xx:xx:xx

Factual error: Why would Columbia University have the "most powerful electron microscope on the eastern seaboard" in the same lab room as it would have the spider lab, which is a biology/genetics study? Electron microscopes are useless for studying DNA. The electron beam turns molecules into sludge. All but the toughest organic samples have to be coated with metal as protection, and you can't do this with DNA.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: DNA labeled with heavy atoms can be seen in electron microscopes. While DNA sequencing isn't yet viable with electron microscopes, transmission electron microscopy DNA sequencing could be possible. Given the fictitious advancements in science seen in Spider-Man, it's possible they can successfully sequence DNA as well.

Factual error: In the graduation scene, watch for the giant spiky orange flowers behind Norman Osborn. These are tropical birds of paradise flowers which grow all over California but would never survive in New York. [Confirmation of that: one contributor was taking a studio tour at Sony studios in Culver City, CA on March 26, 2001, and saw the filming of the graduation scene, complete with Tobey and Kirsten zipping by sitting side-by-side in the jump seat of a golf cart.]

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the building is on fire, you see a fireman (helmet has 57 on it) assisting in getting the residents out of the structure. Take notice that the fireman has an annoying strap hanging down from the top of his helmet. Eventually that strap disappears and a convenient microphone comes into focus. Stick around, because the microphone has a vanishing act too.

Continuity mistake: When Peter shoots webs around his room and hits the rocket over, all that is on the nightstand is the cool light bulb lamp, the picture and the Dr. Pepper can. When it flips back to the nightstand again you can see some weird green alarm clock next to the overturned picture.

Spider-Man mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When Peter is just getting to the science lab at the beginning right after his friend gets out of his fancy car, if you look at the extras walking behind the two, you will see a BRIGHT red haired girl walking by, going towards the building, but when the camera focuses on Peter the girl is there again, walking the opposite way on the other side of the huge sidewalk. You see her about 5 times going back and forth to the building. The first few times she's alone, then she's walking with another girl.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When we see Spider-Man protect the armoured car and take out the thieves, we see that Spider-Man throws a robber over his head and the robber hits a wall. The following shot his position has changed lying on the floor.

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene in which Peter and Flash are fighting in the hall, Harry runs up to Mary Jane to see what is happening, seconds later Peter jumps up to avoid Flash's friend charging him from behind. In the shot of Peter flipping in the air, you can see that Harry is no longer standing next to Mary Jane, a girl in a blue sweater is. After Peter lands, the camera cuts back to Mary Jane and Harry is once again by her side.

xx:xx:xx

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Spider-Man catches Mary Jane as she falls off the balcony, in the shot from above there are two columns lying on the ground - one on the right as we look at it, a few feet from the red area and parallel to it, and one on the left at an angle. In the shot of them landing, the one closest to the red area has disappeared.

xx:xx:xx

Jon Sandys
Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: At the World Unity Festival, Peter is taking pictures. When he looks up at Harry and M.J. on the balcony, his camera, which has been your average "right handed" camera throughout the film, magically becomes a "left handed" camera. The shot's obviously been reversed - his parting's on the wrong side as well.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Peter Parker is walking behind Mary Jane, just after they both leave for school, and Mary Jane's father is yelling at her on the street, you see the yellow bus approaching behind them, with no car in front of the bus. As the camera angle changes, you see a black convertible pull up to pick up Mary Jane, and it arrives before the bus, even though the car was nowhere to be seen a second prior.

xx:xx:xx

Other mistake: There is no way possible that MJ, would have been able to fall from the height that she fell from while being knocked from Spider-Man's grasp onto the edge of that cable car during the bridge scene. It's hard enough to believe that she would be able to withstand the force of being knocked around in circles while holding onto a web much less landing directly onto the edge of a cable car.

xx:xx:xx

Rollin Garcia Jr

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film when Spider-Man is beating up the Green Goblin against a wall, Green Goblin reveals himself, and suddenly the distance from Spider-Man has changed from being really close as in face to face, to about 2 foot away.

xx:xx:xx

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When Peter runs into Mary Jane leaving her job at the diner, when she says "some dream, huh?" she wraps her jacket around her and folds her arms. After a brief cut of Peter her jacket's open - she then says "don't tell Harry", wraps her jacket around herself and folds her arms again.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene on the street, right after the crook escapes with the wrestling money, Peter is standing watching all the people rush to his uncle Ben - there is a girl wearing a black leather jacket, white shirt and black go-go boots walking with 2 guys. When Peter runs to his uncle, she is behind him. When Peter pushes through the crowd, the girl is already there, to the right of the shot.

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the part of the balcony where Mary-Jane is starts to break, there's a lamp on it. It vanishes the following shot, then reappears some shots later.

Dr Wilson

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, we see the bus driving on the right side of the road. When the shot goes to the guy eating the doughnut, look outside the window and the bus is about 2 feet (if that) from the curb. Yet, when we see Peter in the rear view mirror, there are now a lot of cars parked at the curb that we didn't see in the previous shot.

Continuity mistake: At the start of the film in the scene with Aunt May and Uncle Ben talking, Uncle Ben picks up a green plate. When he goes to pick it up, there are books, or something, resting by the microwave, which changes position between shots.

Revealing mistake: When Peter catches MJ's falling lunch, the apple lands on its side and doesn't move at all, despite it being round and the tray being moved about so abruptly. Blatantly glued down.

Continuity mistake: When Peter is practising throwing spider webs in his bedroom, his first attempt hits a model rocket and it breaks in many pieces. A few shots later when he finally hits the Dr. Pepper can, as he whips it across the room you can see the rocket back in one piece, just leaning against the wall.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the film when we see Peter waking up and reaching for his glasses, in the previous shot he didn't have the blanket on him or over his shoulders, it's in the background on the floor, yet when he reaches for his glasses the blanket is on his shoulders.

Spider-Man mistake picture

Other mistake: In the scene after Spider-Man stops the convenience store robbers, it shows a newspaper article. This article virtually repeats itself. Here's what you can read: "Witnesses claim an unknown masked man was seen exiting the Ling Deli after stopping two suspects from attempting to rob the establishment. Police spokesman John Young said "we've heard of Samaritans, but in 20 years I've never seen anything like this." The two suspects were taken to the county jail....(cutoff)....attempting to rob that same establishment. Police spokesman John Young said "we've heard of Samaritans, but in 20 years I've never seen anything like this." The two suspects were taken to the county jail."

Revealing mistake: During the final fight with the Goblin, Spider-Man is up against the wall and the Goblin goes to stab him with his "quad bladed knife". Spider-Man grabs 2 of the blades and while pushing back you can see all 4 ends of the blades vibrating up and down as if they were made out of rubber.

Continuity mistake: This is towards the end of the scene where Mary Jane had an encounter with the thugs and Spider-Man comes to save the day. After beating up the thugs, Spider-Man leaves through some dark alley way and Mary Jane looks around to find him. Suddenly, Spider-Man comes down his web, upside down, along a wall. She's about 3 feet away when he starts speaking, but when the angle changes and she jumps around she's right in front of him.

Continuity mistake: In the final fight scene, between Spider-Man and Green Goblin, when Spider-Man goes down, suddenly Green Goblin has a kind of weapon on his hand, when in the rest of the fight scene he had nothing.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film just before Norman Osborn's glider zooms in and kills Norman, Norman is standing right by the hole in the wall, yet when the glider hits him, he has moved quite some distance to his left and is now at a large part of the wall.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Peter is following MJ up the street, there are two cars and a jeep in the background. When Flash picks up MJ and speeds away, Peter runs from in front of the jeep, which was further down the street. Also there is now only one car in front of the jeep, instead of several.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie when the students are in a museum, we see a spider pulling up a sack of crickets. The sack changes position between shots.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: Peter Parker climbs his first wall in an alleyway. Look carefully at his shadow - it is directly in front of him on the wall the whole time, indicating that he is being lit from directly behind. The only thing behind him is the opposite wall. The only possible light sources would be from the opening of the alleyway (which would have cast a long shadow to his left) or from above (which would have cast a long shadow behind him).

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Osbourne is on the table with the wires attached to his chest they go from both pointing to about 2 o'clock, to both nearly being vertical, to being one vertical, one angled, then just before he bursts out, the one of the left's pointing down.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Peter and his uncle are talking in the car, they are parked on the side of a one way street, with their car in the same direction as the traffic, but when the camera is on the uncle, you can see cars going in the opposite direction reflected in the windows behind him.

xx:xx:xx

Audio problem: When the Green Goblin gases Spidey after crashing through Jameson's office window, you see him fall and hear him almost immediately hitting the ground even though the window is several stories up. I think it is the sound of him falling onto the stunt mat.

xx:xx:xx

Other mistake: After Uncle Ben gets shot, he is clutching his wound. When Peter shows up, they hold hands until Uncle Ben dies, yet there is no blood on Peter's hand. If Uncle Ben were just covering a gun shot wound, wouldn't there be blood on his hand, which would then be on Peter's?

Revealing mistake: In the final punch-up, shortly before Osborn reveals himself, Peter pulls the Goblin to his feet and pushes him against a large foot/foot and a half thick brick wall, which wobbles.

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.

You see a shot of the Green Goblin throwing his hands up next to his head, then a close-up shot of his face where he says "oh" but there are no hands. Then in the next shot from further away his hands are back by his head.

Other mistake: When Spider-Man tries to punch the Green Goblin before he says "impressive", the Goblin blocks his punch. However, the punch would not have hit the Goblin even if he hadn't blocked it. There's nothing to suggest the Goblin moved at all, so why would Spidey punch through mid-air when he's trying to hit the Goblin?

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film when we see MJ hugging Peter, in one shot you can see she moves her hand to his neck and close to his ear, yet from the front view, her hand is still on his back.

Continuity mistake: When Spider-Man is fighting the thugs that attacked Mary Jane, at one point he lifts a thug in the air and they are in the middle of the street. After it cuts to Mary Jane, now Spider-Man is holding the thug in the air with one foot on the curb.

Audio problem: When Goblin is on the bridge with Mary Jane and the cable car, Spider-Man screams, "Don't do it Goblin!" but there is clearly no mouth movement whatsoever under the mask.

Continuity mistake: In the fight with Flash Thompson (in school, his first fight), when Peter grabs his hand, first he is grabbing him by his watch, then a little bit lower in a different shot, in the next shot by his watch again.

Deliberate mistake: There's a purple tent below and to the right of where MJ is trapped on the breaking ledge. When the Goblin is kicked off of his glider by Spider-Man, he falls to MJ's left but lands in the tent on the right.

Continuity mistake: While Peter is talking to Mr Jameson in his office around the middle of the film, he picks up the phone and calls in one of his assistants. When he suddenly appears at the door he moves the phone away from his ear twice.

Continuity mistake: When the owners of Oscorp are asking Osborn questions, just after he says "back to formula," his position in the room changes within a second.

The-Immortal

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.

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

The-Immortal

Revealing mistake: At the end of the movie, when Peter is placing Dr. Osborn on the couch after he died, as Peter is lowering him, Dr. Osborn's hand changes from being stiff to the hand moving to help being put down. While it's possible it was a natural reflex, I don't think that they are able to help lower themselves with their own hand. Dr. Osborn had been dead for a while anyway.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

Movie_Freak 1

Factual error: During the bridge scene, when the Green Goblin first holds Mary Jane by her throat, his left thumb is visible. All further shots show no thumb under Mary Jane's chin. Actually, the left hand then seems to be holding Mary Jane by her right shoulder. Even when Mary Jane, who is not a super-human, is held by her throat, she is able to move her head, look down and scream.

Visible crew/equipment: At Thanksgiving dinner, when Aunt May looks outside when she sees something, the reflection on her glasses shows what appears to be a green screen.

Continuity mistake: The scene in the hospital is supposed to take place in winter, since it's after Thanksgiving, but the trees visible outside the window are in bloom.

xx:xx:xx

Audio problem: Immediately when Peter and Harry walk into the room with the genetically engineered spiders, Peter says something like "Wow, that's amazing." His mouth does not move.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

Factual error: When Spider-Man is hanging under the bridge holding the cable car and the Goblin charges at him the final time, he gets hit on the head by a gas can presumably thrown by one of the motorists watching from the bridge. However, for the can to have hit when and where it did, it would have had to curve out and around a four foot railing and some ten feet of concrete and steel before making its way underneath the bridge and some distance in to strike the Goblin. Not only was this an incredible curve ball that was precisely aimed at a target not directly visible by the person who threw it, but it still managed to impact with enough force to knock the Goblin off course.

xx:xx:xx

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.

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.

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...?

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.

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

Factual error: In the scene where Peter is clinging to the ceiling of his room with Normand Osborne looking for him, a drop of Peter's blood falls to the floor. It should simply splatter outward, but we see it "splash" upwards as if it was a bucket of blood hitting water.

Continuity mistake: When Peter runs out of school just after he beat up Flash, he runs into an alley and looks at his hand which is at waist level, then it cuts to a different view, his hand is now at neck level and one of his fingers is pointing up, then the shot after his hand is back to waist level and all fingers are straight and pointing down.

Continuity mistake: In the scene in Jameson's office after he throws his cigar out the window and the Goblin throws it back, when Jameson is looking at the cigar on his desk, he is sitting at an angle. Right before the Goblin crashes in, Jameson is sitting perfectly straight at the desk, with both hands on the desktop.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Spider-Man finishes beating up the thugs and after Mary Jane kisses Spider-Man, when you watch the one shot from the side, Mary Jane only starts to put his mask back on. But when the angle changes, Spider-Man's mask is properly on when Mary Jane didn't even move her hands.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the Thanksgiving dinner scene, watch Mary Jane's arms after Norman asks Peter to repeat how he got hurt. When she is shown close up, her arms are folded. In the long shot, her hands are in her lap. They jump back and forth between the two positions.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: During the scene where the apartment building is on fire - a woman points directly up and exclaims, "Look up there!" while Spider-Man is still swinging towards the fire from several blocks away.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When MJ and Peter are discussing the beating that Peter gave Flash that morning in school, MJ says, "He's just glad you didn't give him a black eye for graduation." This scene takes place the day after Peter was bitten by the spider, when the weather is cold. High school graduations generally take place in June or late May - so any black eye Peter might have given Flash would long be healed up by graduation.

xx:xx:xx

Other mistake: When Spider-Man enters the burning building, the Green Goblin jumps out from under a cloak, punches him in the face and Spider-Man is thrown backwards. However, for Spider-Man to be propelled back the way that he was the Green Goblin would have had to punch him in the torso. Spider-Man's head should have snapped back first when the Green Goblin hit him.

Revealing mistake: When Peter is doing his web tests in his bedrooms for the first time, when he pulls the lamp at him, you can see a string like object around his wrist, obviously to pull the lamp.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Osbourne tries the performance enhancers on himself, he takes off his labcoat and throws it into a corner. We see a long shot of the lab, and the coat is in at the base of the pillar. In a subsequent long shot however, the coat has moved a foot or so.

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the scene in which Peter is introduced to Norman Osborn in front of the museum, keep an eye on the Volvo parked behind the Rolls Royce. When the camera first faces Mr. Osborn (Willem Dafoe), the Volvo in the background has the window rolled halfway down. Camera switches to Peter and Harry, then back to Mr. Osborn. This time the window is all the way up. When the camera comes back to Mr. Osborn again, there is someone leaning in the window talking to the driver. The next time the camera comes back to Mr. Osborn, the window is again halfway down.

Audio problem: At Norman Osbourne's funeral, we see Harry from the side saying to Peter that he is like family, but his face doesn't move when he talks.

Continuity mistake: When Uncle Ben's killer enters the warehouse he reloads his gun and pulls the slide back to cock it. Later, when he points the same gun at Peter, you can hear the distinct sound of the hammer being pulled back. However, despite cocking the gun twice, you can see that the gun is not cocked.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Peter runs downstairs the morning after his bite, Uncle Ben is startled from drinking his coffee. From the front angle, Uncle Ben is holding the cup with two hands. When he turns to look at Peter and the angle changes, he's holding the mug with only one hand.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Osborn is getting ready to radiate himself at his laboratory, he drinks the small bottle of anti-coagulant before stepping into the chamber. He then smashes the bottle on the ground to his left. But in later shots you see no evidence of the fragments of the glass bottle.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the final battle scene, Goblin's costume alternates between clean (green) and dirty (white/dusty) throughout the scene.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Parker is chasing the robber into the abandoned warehouse you see the a shot of the robber holding the gun in his left hand and carring the money bag in his right hand. However the next shot you see him load a clip into the gun with the bag in his left hand and the gun in his right hand.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Spidey is stopping the armored car robbery, he dispatches several thugs with some fancy, acrobatic fighting. When he lands, a money bag is visible in front of him that wasn't there in the wide shot.

Continuity mistake: When Osborn awakens in the vault, the position of his hand grabbing the doctor's throat changes positions depending on the angle.

Revealing mistake: When the car jacker who stole Uncle Ben's car is being chased by the police, they seem to be doing a high speed pursuit. However when the car goes over the corner and demolishes a stand, a cut shows the inside of the car. The digital speedometer is reading 15-17 mph, hardly much of a challenge for the police to catch.

Factual error: In the museum, Peter and his friends are real-time videos of live, moving biological specimens shot through 'the largest electron microscope on the Eastern seaboard'. You can't film live specimens in an electron microscope. The electron beam only works in a vacuum chamber, in which the specimen - invariably dead - is held. The microscope is identified as a scanning electron microscope - current technology - and nobody can fire an electron stream through air. The electrons will collide with gas molecules and scatter, ruining the image.
