Revealing mistake: A quick mistake happens when Brenda and the girl crawling out of the TV get in a fight. Brenda throws the punch, the other girl falls over, and for a quick second her dress flies up too far and you can see where the makeup (that makes her look dead) on her legs end and you can see her real thigh.
Continuity mistake: After George has closed the well, the alien appears. Cody and Cindy gasp, and you see Cindy putting her arm on Cody's right shoulder. George climbs up from the hole and puts his hand on Cindy's shoulder. When it cuts, Cindy's hand is on Cody's left shoulder and George's hand is on Cody's right shoulder.
Continuity mistake: When Cindy is surfing the Internet for the lighthouse, you see her clicking on different links. When she has clicked the "Page4" link, you see the mouse pointer start moving. Then it cuts to Cindy and back to the screen again. You can see the mouse pointer move from the exact same position in the exact same direction.
Revealing mistake: When Tom comes down to the basement you see him coming down a narrow stairway. Later when Cindy says "there's something on the other side of the door", you can see a shadow walking back and forth behind the door. That shouldn't be possible unless the thing behind the door can walk through the walls in the narrow stairway.

Continuity mistake: When Father Muldoon is knocking on Cindy's door, she walks towards it. It is a frosted glass door, but you should be able to see if someone is standing behind it. We can't see Muldoon standing there at all. It cuts to Cindy opening the door, and then back to Muldoon standing in the door opening. We can also see a painting in the hall, and when Cindy closes the door we can see the painting through the glass door. How come we didn't see Muldoon?
Continuity mistake: When Tom is talking to George at the farm about his hip-hop dreams, on his right hand he is wearing a glove and is also holding another glove. The glove stays on all during the conversation, and we never see him take it off. Then, when George gets his head stuck in the bus, you can clearly see both of Tom's hands - empty.

Continuity mistake: In Cody's room, when the color drawing is on the bed and when Cindy holds it in front of her, we see it includes the sky, the house/chimney with smoke, the boy, the arrow, etc. In the close-up of the drawing, there are now three large spaceships drawn under the sky, between the house and the boy.
Continuity mistake: When Pamela and Jenny try to turn the television off, you see Jenny lying in bed while Pamela gets up heading for the television. In the next shot, you see them both running towards it side by side. Jenny could not have gotten up that fast to be running beside Pamela.
Continuity mistake: When father Muldoon has arrived and asked where Cody is, there is a shot of the table where Cody just sat and you can also see a shelf on the wall. Later, when Cindy comes back home and finds George lying unconscious over the table the shelf is different and is screwed on higher up the wall.
00:13:35 - 00:43:35Mortug
Continuity mistake: After George has beaten up Cody with a baseball bat, when the boy staggers towards Cindy, he has a big scratch on his forehead. Then the next time we see him, only about thirty seconds later in the same scene, he's fine and the scratch has miraculously healed.
01:02:00 - 01:03:00
Other mistake: When Cindy is watching the tape for the first time and we look up the cellar stairs there are some coats hanging to the left. Later in the movie when Cindy is in the cellar she recognizes the stairs and realises she is in Tabitha's old family house. The same coats are still hanging there, in exactly the same places. Wouldn't Tom have thrown all the old stuff that belonged to Tabitha's family when he moved in?
00:36:00 - 01:06:25Mortug
Continuity mistake: When George says to Cody that he wouldn't be a good father Cindy is looking at George. When it cuts, Cindy is facing Cody and holding her hand on his shoulder. When it cuts again, Cindy is looking at George again and it's obvious that she doesn't have her hand on Cody's shoulder.
Continuity mistake: Before the rap contest when George removes his headset and looks into the mirror, you can see the hood of his jumper hanging over the jacket on his left shoulder. When it cuts from behind him you can see the reflection in the mirror that the hood is tucked in under the jacket and no longer hanging over his shoulder.
Revealing mistake: When George comes through the window at the club he is actually supposed to be thrown out. But he comes running out and there are no people up there who can have thrown him out. There are two guys standing there on each side of the window. They were probably placed there so it would seem like they threw him out.
Revealing mistake: When Cindy gets to Tom's house and Sue is calling for George, you see Sue and George walking away. You can see in the background that they have boarded up the windows. On one wall the window is blocked by planks, and the other wall has been totally covered with planks and there is sunlight coming through cracks in the planks all over. It is obvious there is no wall behind the planks. Where did the wall go?
Continuity mistake: When Brenda unplugs the TV because it keeps turning itself on, under the TV in a little compartment you can see three stacks of videos and they are piled up untidily. But when the TV starts to leak, the videos are piled up neatly and also the video cases have changed and the video piles have moved further apart.
Continuity mistake: When Brenda goes to fetch the popcorn from the living room, the little table she gets the popcorn from has a couch beside it. When she picks the popcorn up the couch is about a foot away from the table, but when Brenda fights Tabitha, the couch is now right beside the table.
00:24:00 - 00:25:30Hamster
Continuity mistake: When Father Muldoon arrives he lights two candles on a table. The candles weren't on the table earlier, but they suddenly appear after Muldoon knocks on the door (visible on the far left side of the screen when Cindy approaches the door). Then they disappear and appear again.
Other mistake: When we first get to see Tom's house it is that there is nothing else than a corn field on the left side of the entrance to the house. Later when we see Tom running out of the house looking for Sue, trees and bushes suddenly appear on the left side instead of the corn field. Also the above shot of the house property later doesn't match what we've seen earlier.
00:03:50 - 00:04:35Mortug
Continuity mistake: When Cindy is walking along with her boss talking, her boss is holding a folder as he walks along, in his left hand. Then when Cindy hits her head on the microphone and falls, the folder is suddenly in his right hand, so that her can pull her up with his left hand.
Continuity mistake: In the scene with the final showdown between Tabitha and Cindy, just after the lights go off and come back on Tabitha grabs a chainsaw, fires it up, and brandishes it above her head. When she does this, the blade is to the left, the extra handle on the end to the right. However, there is a quick shot change (to Cindy picking up the leafblower), and when we look back at Tabitha, the extra handle has switched to the left, and we can breifly see the blade is now on the right. Then there is another quick shot change, and when whe cut back, it has reversed directions back to normal.
Continuity mistake: When Brenda is watching the TV and says "the whole world gotta stop..." she turns around and walk toward the couch. Then it cuts to the TV, then back to Brenda still walking towards the couch. By this time she wouldn't be walking towards it but she would stand right next to it.
Continuity mistake: When Cindy is in Cody's classroom you see Cindy picking up a drawing. In the background on the left side you see a table with a blue chair pushed into it. Later when George is kneeling by the table, the chair has been pushed away without anyone being near the that table.
Continuity mistake: When they are gathered down in the cellar, right before Cindy says "are they gone?". Have a close look in the background. There is a lot of stuff and mess there. Later when Cindy has the flashback from the tape we see the exact same corner as earlier, but now it is cleaned up and the ladder has been placed there.
01:00:10 - 01:06:20Mortug
Continuity mistake: At the very end of the movie after the wedding, Cindy and the other guy drive off, leaving Cody behind. We see the boy running after them along a straight road. After Cindy stops short of striking the child, Cody is then hit by another car coming from his right hand side and they're suddenly at a crossroads. They weren't at the crossroads a couple of seconds earlier.
Continuity mistake: After talking to Cody outside of the school, it shows Cindy pulling away. A few feet away, you can see a blue trash bin, as well as a blue banner hanging from a building. Inside the car, Cindy pulls a few feet away way from those two things. However, after she notices Cody is not in the car, it goes outside the car again, and Cindy is shown at the same place as before, but did not move there.
Continuity mistake: When Cindy is in the cellar and Tabitha is standing right behind her following her moves, Cindy then tries to surprise Tabitha by quickly turning around. Tabitha then jumps to the side and stands still for about half a second. Then it cuts to a wide shot and you see Tabitha slightly move to the side again and her hair swings (which it wouldn't as Tabitha was standing in that position for a second already).
Revealing mistake: When Tabitha's mother falls off the cliff you see her fall out of view. But when it cuts you see she has landed on a log. Problem is that the log is connected at the top of the cliff. She would fall directly onto it and we would still see her. In fact we would be able to see the log as well.
Continuity mistake: In the cellar, Cindy walks backwards into a shelf and knocks off a jar of marbles. Look more closely, and you'll see the jar fall off, then smash into the shelf below, leaving a pile of glass on it. But as the shot changes, you can see the shelf again, and the glass has disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When Cindy is talking to the oracle you see the oracle sitting in her chair. It cuts back and forth between them. First the oracle doesn't have anything under her left arm, then suddenly there is a leopard pattern looking pillow under her arm. Then it's suddenly gone again.
Continuity mistake: In the beginning, when we first get to Tom Logan's house, you see there is not any smoke coming from the chimney. But later on, when we see the shot from above the corn field and the house, you see smoke coming out of the chimney. I doubt Tom would have made a fire because he ran out of the house immediately after hearing Sue screaming, and he had just gotten out of bed.
00:03:55 - 00:05:35Mortug
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Cindy gets an envelope with some pictures in it from Brendas mother, Cindy is holding the envelope and the pictures in her left hand and as she is looking through the pictures she puts the pictures behind the envelope. When it cuts no pictures are behind the envelope, but all are in front.
Continuity mistake: When Tom gets down to the cellar you see George standing by something that is covered by a brown carpet. When it cuts to Tom walking you can see a trash can suddenly appear on the right side of the brown carpet. Not easy to see cause it happens kind of fast, but if you roll it in slow motion you can see it.
Continuity mistake: When Cindy is at the Oracle's place and sitting down on a chair, you can see an ashtray on the table beside her. When The Oracle is putting out her cigarette you can see the ashtray has changed position. The ashtray has moved closer to the lamp and the two candles on the table.
Visible crew/equipment: When George exits the classroom some kid throws crayons after him. You can see the hand throwing them. Now, you can say that it is the kid's hand, but take in mind that from that angle Brenda would have seen the kid who threw them, so she wouldn't have had to ask them who threw them.
Continuity mistake: When Agent Thompson blows up the Mother Theresa picture you see everybody running away and jumping to the ground before the explosion. When it cuts to Thompson and the president running through the hole that was made by the explosion, there is a man lying on the floor right beside the hole and a nun standing by the hole. They shouldn't be in the picture at all since they all ran away.
Revealing mistake: When Cindy reverses into Cody after realising she'd left him behind, you can tell the switch to dummy if you pause it in the right place. Also - when the dummy lands after being thrown back, it springs back up, almost hanging in mid-air for a second. It's obvious the dummy is being carried on wires, but without being blatant enough to be a deliberate gag.
Revealing mistake: When Cindy, Cody and Sue have made the hole in the cellar floor and unveiled the well, there is a shot from inside the hole. We see the well and the huge hole they have made. We also see a wooden plank wall surrounding the well with sunlight coming through the cracks. However, if we look up the hole we see a door, and behind that door there is supposed to be some stairs. Because there are stairs, there could not be any sunlight coming through the cracks, since the sun wouldn't shine there at all.
Other mistake: When Cindy slides the knife under the door she says that the aliens are hideous and gives a description of what they look like. When Mahalik comes crashing into the basement, George says, "There's two of them at the door." Cindy never said how many were there she just said what they looked like so George couldn't have known how many aliens were at the door.
01:01:40 - 01:02:40
Revealing mistake: When the oracle tells Cindy not to worry about the vase you see her bumping into the vase by her side. At the same time you can see the pillar on the opposite side of her moving. Like someone standing beside it accidently bumps into it before dropping another vase onto Cindy's head.
Continuity mistake: When the president is welcoming everybody to the White House and we can see the sign that says "Mother Theresa Community Awards". If you look to the left, you can see an old black couple. In front of them, you can see a white couple. When it cuts to a shot from behind them, you can see the white couple has moved farther to the right.
Continuity mistake: When Brenda holds Tabitha back by the head when they fight, Brenda says "That's all" to her, and between shots, Brenda's arm moves from being beside her, with her fist clenched, to behind her, with her hand rested on her back, to beside of her with her fist clenched again.
Continuity mistake: When the 'hood' show up, just before the aliens appear, they all start having a fight. One of the men says 'Your Mama' and he is rolling up a cigarette by his face. But in the next shot, his hands are down by his side, and he's even acquired has a gun in one hand.
Continuity mistake: When CJ and his gang arrive at the cornfields, CJ says "Let's go do this.." and you can see his gang behind him. Then in a wide shot he says "...Cause I'm hyped right now" and you can see the gang behind him again, but this time they are standing in different places.
Continuity mistake: During her wedding, Cindy throws her flowers over her head and we see a group of women dive for them. However, in the next shot, the President emerges from the pile-on with the bouquet, even though he was not in the pile-on originally. (Regardless if the intention was to surprise the audience, this is still a continuity error.)
Continuity mistake: When they are in the cellar you see Cindy reaching for a knife. On the same table as the knife you can see different items. A pincers, a grindstone, a screwdriver and so on. In the next shot you can see all these items are replaced by similar but yet different items. The grindstone in the next shot are larger than the other. The pincers in the next shot are smaller than the other and so on.
Audio problem: When George comes out of his house he wears headphones. When Tom lifts up the headphone piece in order for George to hear him you can hear the music. But when George takes the headphones entirely off there isn't a sound coming out of them, and he didn't turn off the discman because it is in his pocket.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where George, (the Eminem wannabe) is leaving the farm on the bus, his head gets squashed between the doors of the bus and his beanie and bandana fly off into the road. Then they show the onlookers saying stuff like "ouch" and "owww". Then they show his head again and it has the beanie and bandana on.
Deliberate mistake: When Cindy is leaving the elementary school and doesn't realize she leaves Cody, she drives for awhile (about 300 feet or so), she's talking and she keeps driving when she realizes Cody isn't in the car, it zooms to the exterior of the car and it shows it stop, then she backs up and the school is only like 40 feet away.
