Continuity mistake: On his last pizza delivery before he gets fired, when it first cuts to the receptionist and the room that she is in, the clock is very high up in this shot, above the receptionist's head, then in the following shot when the receptionist is looking in Peter's direction, the clock is much lower.



Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film when we see Peter in Jameson's office, the black guy says, "Five minutes to deadline Jonah." Jameson raises his hand to him, but in the following shot it's a lot lower. Also, when he's talking about a food poisoning scare, he raises his hand high up to the right, yet in the following shot, it's far to the left of him.



Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film, Peter bumps into Dr Connors. Peter has his bag on his left shoulder but in the previous shot you don't see him put it on his left shoulder.



Audio problem: When Aunt May gives Peter his birthday money, before she says, "Can you believe that it's two years next month since he was taken?", we see her from the side, and the motion of her jaw shows that her lips are moving before she speaks. When she says, "Were I to face the one responsible.", there's another shot of her from the side, and as she continues, ".for what happened", her jaw doesn't move at all. In the same shot, when she says, "Oh, I don't know what I'd do", once again the motion of her jaw show that her lips are moving before she speaks.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Peter is riding his scooter to Mary Jane's play, after the music fades out you see a black convertible being chased by several police cars. The black convertible is rammed forcibly, and you see many hideous dents on the side of the car. Thirty seconds later, after Peter is done talking to the kids, we see the same car from the same side it got rammed into, but the hideous dents have vanished.


Continuity mistake: When Dr. Octopus is robbing the bank, NYPD squad car 4619 arrives on the scene. However, squad car 4619 was badly damaged during the pizza delivery car chase earlier in the movie - an awfully quick fix.

Continuity mistake: In the elevator scene when Peter/Spider-man first loses his powers, we see a man standing outside the elevator holding a dog on a leash.

Continuity mistake: As you are listening to the bank guard tell Doctor Octopus, "Put your arms up! All of them!", look at the money cart inside the vault. It goes from just a few items on it at first, to having a multitude of items on it, as well as around it, in later shots of the scene.

Continuity mistake: Close to the middle of the film when Peter is in the big room where MJ announces her engagement, when Peter is finished talking with Harry at the bar he gets pulled away by Jameson, Harry then turns around and drinks, yet when it cuts to a shot of Peter and Jameson walking away, look in the background and Harry is still looking at Peter walking away.

May Parker: We need a hero, couragous sacrificing people, setting examples for all of us. Everybody loves a hero, people line up for 'em, cheer for them, scream their names, and years later tell how they stood in the rain for hours just to get a glimpse of the one who told them to HOLD ON a second longer. I believe theres a hero in all of us, that keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble. And finally gets us to die with pride. Even though sometimes we have to be steady and give up the thing we want most, even our dreams.



Dr. Curt Connors, Peter's one-armed teacher in the film, is the man who will later become The Lizard, one of Spider-Man's longest running enemies.
