Continuity mistake: When Papa is showing Buddy the sled at the beginning of the film we see the Clausometer (the middle odometer)and the indicator is pointing to the left at around 15 (9pm position). As Papa gets in the indicator is now pointing at around 35-40 (10pm position). Later in the scene when it show a closeup of the meter it is back to 15 and then the last shot of it its 35-40 on the meter. The changes are instantaneous between shots and there is not enough time for them to move that much.

Revealing mistake: When Buddy is in the mailroom dancing on the table, you can see the sides of his pants flare out around the hips to see the outline of the harness used when he's low to the ground during some of the dance moves.

Continuity mistake: In the snowball fight scene we see some snowballs hit the rock behind them. The snow on the rocks keeps disappearing and reappearing between shots.

Visible crew/equipment: Widescreen only. When Buddy is chasing down Michael after school, just before the camera cuts if you look at the far left of the screen you can just see a boom mic entering the shot.

Continuity mistake: In the scene in Central Park as Santa speaks with Michael, Santa's arm is either on the book of Christmas lists, or off it, as the scenes switch between looking over Michael's shoulder and over Santa's shoulder.

Continuity mistake: Watch the shoppers behind Buddy after the Gimbel's supervisor announces Santa's upcoming visit. Without enough time to have moved between shots, a guy with a yellow elf hat is standing where a lady with a black coat has been.

Revealing mistake: The number of snowballs the bullies throw at Michael and Buddy is very unrealistic. There are about five kids, and yet at any given moment, there are dozens, if not a hundred snowballs in the air.

Continuity mistake: When Buddy first meets Jovie, she is wearing much more make-up by the end of the scene. The amount of lipstick increases quite a bit, for example.

Continuity mistake: After baby Buddy crawls out of Santa's bag at the North Pole workshop, he is partially sitting on the edge of the bag, grasping the leg of a teddy bear. The next shot and the baby is over a foot from the bag, and not holding on to the bear's leg, which is still in the bag.

Continuity mistake: When Buddy is lying in the roll-out bed in the living room of his father's house and asks to be tucked in, his father does so. His father comes back up and ends up having a red thread on his shirt. The shot switches to Buddy, then back to him and the thread is now on his right arm.

Continuity mistake: During the scene where everybody is caroling, there is a close up of the boy telling his dad that he is just moving his lips. In this closeup, the man in the background is just standing there smiling, but in the very next shot, we see him singing.

Continuity mistake: When Buddy's dad opens the present from Buddy, he holds it directly above the box. In the next shot, a closer shot, he is holding it next to the box. The following shot shows him holding the present directly above the box again.
