Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Other mistake: When Harry falls out of the car as he and Ron are flying above the train, his hand misses the door handle completely and he should have fallen clear to the bottom of the gorge. However, in the next shot and after, he is hanging onto the handle quite firmly.

Other mistake: While downstairs Vernon hears Hedwig's squawks, as well as Dobby and Harry's exchange in the bedroom upstairs, distracting enough for them all, including the Masons, to take note. The noise upstairs illicits a reaction from everyone, which Vernon explains is a noisy cat. Yet when Harry very noisily chases Dobby down the steps, Dobby slams into the wall and Harry lands with a loud thud (not remotely 'catlike'), Vernon, who stands on the other side of the shared wall, pleasantly continues his story to his rapt guests, who are also not distracted by the noise. To suggest that such loud noises coming from the hallway right beside them would not draw any reaction from anyone, Vernon and the Masons included, is preposterous.

Other mistake: In the ending credits, the character of Hannah Abbott is listed as "Hannah Hufflepuff."

Other mistake: In the beginning of the movie, when Dobby is hitting himself with the lamp, you can clearly see that the first swing stays a few inches from his head, but he still grunts and shakes his head in pain.

Other mistake: When Fawkes carries Lockhart, Ron, Harry, and Ginny out of the Chamber, you can see their shadows on the rocks. Fawkes' shadow is also visible, but his flapping wings aren't seen.

Other mistake: Dutch DVD Only: After their crashlanding at Hogwarts, Harry and Ron are taken to Snape who tells them the Willow has been standing there "since before they were born". The Dutch translation reads "over a thousand years". It's a minor mistake on itself, but in Book 3 we learn how long the Willow has really been standing there and that's nowhere near "over a thousand years".

Other mistake: This is especially apparent when Harry and company are flying out of the Chamber, but can be seen throughout the movie: when the characters are hanging, their feet are still flat and stiff, as if they are still standing, instead of straightened, as if they are hanging in the air.

Other mistake: When Tom said that he set Hagrid up Harry said that Hagrid is his friend. In Icelandic subtitles it is translated that Harry is his friend.

Other mistake: Near the end of the film, when Harry is leaning on the sink about to change into Goyle, we see his reflection in the mirror. In the reflection, it shows his face is starting to change and his skin is bubbling up, but his actual face (which we see part of in front of the mirror) is not changing at all.

Other mistake: When Harry and Ron find out Lockhart is a fraud, when Lockhart says: "My boy do you use your common sense? My books wouldn't have sold half as well if people didn't think I'd done all those things". Watch Harry, he's mouthing his lines.

Other mistake: When the car crashes in the Whomping Willow, it is turned and moved around a couple of times. Meanwhile, Hedwig is sitting on her perch, not moving at all.

Other mistake: When Harry is talking to Dobby in his bedroom on Privet Drive, Dobby begins banging his head against the dresser to punish himself. If you look closely, you can see that there is a slight delay between the time that Dobby's computer-animated head appears to hit the dresser, the time you hear the thump, and the time when the drawer moves and the dresser shudders.

Other mistake: Dutch DVD Only: After the duel Harry tells he told the snake to keep away from Justin. In the subtitles, Justin's name appears untranslated. Later when Justin falls prey to the Basilisk he is called by name again but this time his name is translated to Dutch in the subtitles, namely "Joost".

Other mistake: Harry now has Dudley's toy room and Dudley's is next to his, however when there is a shot outside the house there is only the one window on the left side of the house and not much space between it and the left outside wall, where is the window for Dudley's very narrow room?

Other mistake: Just before Hermione gives Harry and Ron the two drugged cakes for Crabbe and Goyle in the food hall, snow is falling and to a fairly low level. In spite of this, and it being a continuous shot, as the camera lowers down, the snow ceases, but right at the end of the shot, the camera view raises up a significant amount where we should be able to see the falling snow again, but someone wanted to save pennies on the VFX budget, because the snow has gone.

Other mistake: When Hermione is running around the Quidditch field to blow up the bludger, she makes it around the massive Quidditch field in seven seconds flat.

Mistakes

At the beginning of the scene near the end of the movie with Lucius Malfoy fuming at Dumbledore in his office, Malfoy's hair is fanned back behind his shoulders. The lighting in the room illuminates the back of his neck, where you can see his real, short brown hair.

Trivia

In the scene where Harry and Malfoy are flying on their brooms, there's a shot where Colin takes a picture. Listen to the music right after that. The music is the same music used in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones during the chase scene on Coruscant (John Williams did the music for this film and all the Star Wars films).
