Continuity mistake: When the door to Shrek's house is first opened (just after the honeymoon), it opens into the house. Every other time it opens to the outside. It's not a two-way door, because you can hear it hit the doorframe. (00:04:50)

Suggested correction: How is that a mistake? Lots of doors open both ways.

Doors that open both ways are called a double swinging door and use sprung hinges (or gravity) to bring it back to the center/closed position when not being pushed. It can go both ways because there is no stop casing for the door to hit against when closed (or frame is that is the design). We see Shrek's door hit a stop when slammed, and hear it hit the stop. Meaning there IS a stop, so it is impossible for the door to swing past it, meaning it is impossible to be a double swing, but we see it go in and out in different shots, which would be impossible.

Phoenix

Continuity mistake: Puss saves the Gingerbread Man from drowning in the castle's moat by catching him with his sword, however, he is on Donkey's back and the drawbridge is a couple of meters above the water. So the sword would have to have been 2-3 meters long to get down to the Gingerbread Man.
