Alice in Wonderland

Continuity mistake: The colour and position of the teapots on the Mad Hatter's table is an absolute chaos: First they're pink, yellow and white, then in the close-up green and blue teapots appear. When Alice stands by the head of the table the colours change again and they stop moving despite the music still sounding.

Continuity mistake: The Cheshire cat says "of course he's mad too" while standing on the middle part of a very long branch. Shot swaps to a front angle and the branch is shorter and he is really close to the tree trunk.

Continuity mistake: When Alice becomes a giant a wide shot of the garden shows the main entrance's broken door leaning on her left foot. First of all, the rabbit managed to open it before she burst it with her foot. Second of all, when she shrinks, the door appears magically back in its place.

Continuity mistake: When Alice eats the cookie in the rabbit's place her foot grows huge along the stairs, down to the entrance and out to the garden without knocking a single object except the poor rabbit. When the angle changes to a shot outside the house suddenly all of the furniture has magically appeared out of nowhere next to the shoe.

Continuity mistake: When being a giant inside the house, Alice extends her arms and they're quite short. A couple of shots later she remains the same size but her arms are now 5 times longer to allow for her to open the windows on the front. This has nothing to do with the magical cookies.

Continuity mistake: In the close-up of the oyster shells a salt shaker suddenly appears. There was no shaker previously; as a matter of fact, the carpenter said he was going to bring one but he never did.
