Continuity mistake: When Joe accidentally hits the Eiffel Tower, it topples over to the right. Yet later when the team (minus Sarah) are standing in front of the Tower, it is now shown as having toppled to the left.
Revealing mistake: Although the movie is filmed with puppets on strings, their movements and their surroundings are made to look as realistic as possible. This nitpick shows a moment when that doesn't happen. As the terrorists begin shooting up Paris, one terrorist runs down the street (in front of the bakery) as citizens run in every direction. One puppet (a female wearing a dress with yellow and white stripes) runs off camera to the left. After she runs out of the shot, the shadow of the puppet appears on the building corner (left side of the screen), being lifted up and out of the scene.
Revealing mistake: When Joe blows up the Eiffel Tower in Paris at the beginning, it smashes into the Arc de Triumph which then shatters. But as bits of the building go flying off into the Seine River, they bounce off the hard surface, showing it to be plastic not water.
Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Spottswoode is being televised on the auditorium's monitors, he tells everyone to go home to their countries, he then tells them to thank Gary. The next shot shows Gary and Lisa on Kim's balcony when a spotlight swings over to them and highlights the pair. However in the next shot, a close-up of Gary and Lisa, they are not spotlighted, but in ordinary light and shadow. (01:30:10)Kenneth Noto 1
Continuity mistake: During the vomiting scene, there is vomit down the front of the Gary's shirt, when the camera cuts away it disappears, then after the next cut it reappears again.
Continuity mistake: When Gary is remembering at the start of the film the incident with his family and is looking at the picture in the mirror, you can see there are 4 people in it. The next shot when Gary is speaking with Spottswoode the picture (to the left) has changed to being just 2 people in the picture.Lummie
Factual error: When Team America (minus Gary) go and fight the Koreans in their planes, there is a shot where rain is dripping down the front of the cockpit. If they were flying, the water should be streaming backwards off the plane because of the wind, not dribbling down.
