Plot hole: Andy is suspected of having killed Eddie Caputo, because he was at the scene when Eddie's house blew up and Eddie was killed. But there are glaring things that go unquestioned: None of the cops seem to think it's strange that a six-year-old kid would travel by himself so far to some random house in order to blow it up. The South Side neighborhood where Eddie lives is halfway across the city from Andy's apartment. How did Andy know where Eddie lived? How do the cops think he even knew Eddie at all? None of them address this most puzzling problem.
Continuity mistake: Between shots when Maggie falls out of the window, the length of the wall in between the three windows increases. In the first shot the wall in between each window is half a brick long, In the wideshot the wall has increased to over a brick long. The whole arrangment of the bricks around the windows differs - obviously two different sets.
Continuity mistake: After Maggie has been killed, on the same night Karen talks to Andy about Chucky, telling him that he's just a doll. Karen then tucks Andy in bed. As she tucks him in, Chucky is on the right side of the bed and is falling off of the pillow, down by the side of it. Yet when it cuts to a closeup, Chucky is now perfectly positioned in the centre of the pillow.
Continuity mistake: When Andy returns to the apartment, he goes to his room and shuts himself in his spacious cupboard. In the cupboard there's a pile of toys including a red remote-control car, a baseball bat etc., and between shots the pile of toys changes. Eg. when Andy looks at the pile, the baseball bat is totally exposed, yet when he picks up the remote-control car the bat is wrapped in a sweater.
Continuity mistake: When Chucky's fried, decapitated body comes out of the vent and grabs hold of the policeman's neck, the policeman whirls around and knocks a basket and another object off of the TV. The shot goes to the other three, but when it goes back to Chucky and the cop, the items are back on the TV, untouched.
Visible crew/equipment: When Chucky has the voodoo doll of John, he walks along, then says "And you have a date with death!" After saying that, he turns, prior to stabbing the voodoo doll. After he says it, and turns, you can see the large, bald, shiny head of a puppeteer, crouched behind him!!
Continuity mistake: When Andy is about to brush his teeth, Maggie takes all of the bowls and plates from beside Andy's birthday cake and starts putting them away in the cupboards.

Continuity mistake: Andy puts Chucky in a rocking chair that is missing a runner on one side, then he goes for a tinkle. Yet we then see Chucky has gone from the chair, and the chair is now rocking, with both the runners intact. Then later when Andy returns the runner is missing again.

Continuity mistake: In the opening shot of the scene of Andy's birthday, the camera pans across the Barclay's living room and stops in front of the TV.

Continuity mistake: When Karen struggles to keep the door shut, as Chucky tries to pull it open, Chucky stabs his knife through the door, cutting Karen's hand. Between shots the hole made by the knife gets mysteriously longer, and all the holes Chucky makes in the door seem to change shape/size/location. Also, when Chucky stabs through the door, cutting Karen, a small stain of blood is left on the door. Between three consecutive shots the blood is there, then disappears then reappears.
Continuity mistake: After Andy has been taken away from Karen for a few days, Karen returns to her apartment with Chucky and demands the doll to speak.

The wooden beside cabinet that sits to the right of the bed, is about a foot away from the bed. When it cuts to Andy saying "Chucky", the cabinet now sits right next to his bed.

Continuity mistake: When Maggie goes to pick Andy up and take him to bed, she walks over, and there is a box on the floor. In one shot she stands with one foot either side of box, standing over it. It cuts and the box has now moved to being beside her, and she no longer stands with it in between her feet. There is a saw laying on the floor from the "Good Guys Tool Box Set" which disappears between these two shots as well.
Visible crew/equipment: At the end of the film, the burnt head and body of Chucky are thrown across Karens bedroom, below the window. The body twitches, then suddenly jumps up. The body's (one) leg actually doesn't touch the ground! The body rises with no real support, so if you look under the body, you can see a black rod/sheet (coming from through the carpet), pushing the burnt body up.
Deliberate mistake: In the scene where Mike is in the car and Chucky attacks him, pulling the skipping ropes around his neck and stabbing a knife through the carseat etc., in all the wideshots of the car driving, the stunt driver wearing what looks like a black woolly hat replacing Mike is blatant.
00:54:15 - 00:55:45Hamster
Continuity mistake: Karen, Andy and Mike are shut in Karen's bedroom and Chucky has the opportunity of getting into the bedroom via two doors - a door leading to the hallway, or a door leading to the bathroom. The door leading to the hallway has a key in it, on the side of the door facing INTO Karen's bedroom. Yet later, Chucky runs down the hallway facing the outside of Karen's bedroom door, and first there is no key in the keyhole. Yet when Chucky smashes the door open, there is now a key in the keyhole on the outside of Karen's bedroom door.

Continuity mistake: When Mike Norris opens Karen's bedroom door, looking for Chucky, the camera pans around Karen's room and on top of her TV you can see a wicker basket, some books and a vase. Yet later when Chucky finally gets into the bedroom and chases Karen and Andy, and in following scenes, the vase has gone from the top of the TV.
01:13:25 - 01:18:20Hamster
Other mistake: Chucky emerges from the fireplace, engulfed in flames, walks to the couch and is seen crawling on the couch before falling to the floor and burning on the floor. And yet nothing else catches fire, and the few tiny flames that do drop, like on the corner of the wooden table, don't spread and put themselves out.
Other mistake: When Karen is fighting Chucky for the first time, she's holding him, but also pushing him away. At one point he's about arm's length away and she moves her hands so she's not holding him and he's not holding her, but he doesn't fall. In the next shot, his legs are up against Karen's body.
