Continuity mistake: When they're trying to choose which portal to go through, watch the pattern on the ground. From shot to shot it's either covered by snow, partially visible, or completely exposed, with no time for the wind to blow the snow around.

Factual error: If the Vorgon Destructor Ship was as massive as portrayed, then as Ford and Arthur look up at it, it should have been reflected in Ford's shades. Instead, all that is seen is the demolition equipment and open sky.

Continuity mistake: When Trillian tells Arthur about the machine that makes you whatever you crave, she gets a donut on a plate and it is perfectly visible when she gets out the saber knife, but right after she cuts the toast-bread it has disappeared.
