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.
Visible crew/equipment: Right after Kim Jong Il finishes his "Ronery" song, the camera pans out to reveal him standing on the balcony of his palace. In the first of these 3 shots, if you look on the wall to the left as the camera pans out, you can see a brief shadow of the camera moving backwards.
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.

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.
