Continuity mistake: The ski jump in Cortina d'Ampezzo is in the bottom of the valley - which can also be seen in the overhead shot from the top of the ski jump. But nevertheless Bond has a long ski ride down from the bottom of the jump. And in several shots during the chase it is clear that he is much higher in the mountains than below the city.Jacob La Cour
Continuity mistake: In the last scene with the watch and the parrot on the perch, the watch strap is fully open, however, when the parrot throws the watch in the water, the strap is closed.
Continuity mistake: Near the end when Kristatos slaps Bibi, you can see the difference between two takes.
Continuity mistake: When Gonzales opens the suitcase with money the middle pile is taller than the others, and is more than one bundle of notes taller than the rim of the suitcase. In the next clip, when Gonzales grabs one of the bundles, the middle pile is no taller than the others or than the rim of the suitcase.Jacob La Cour
Continuity mistake: At the restaurant, when Colombo rewinds the tape in the lamp it passes over 2-3 sentences and then he plays the tape starting with the sentence 'But I must warn you.' But after that Bond and Kristatos exchanged 18 sentences, which lasts for approximately a minute before the lamp is removed from the table. Colombo did not rewind the tape that far.Jacob La Cour
Continuity mistake: Right before Bond gets on the bobsled ramp, he puts one of his ski poles between two trees, leaving him with no ski poles (the other one was shot by the skiing expert). As Bond jumps onto the bobsled ramp, there is a quick shot with Bond holding one ski pole and after another quick shot, when Bond is on the ramp, the pole is gone.
Continuity mistake: During the car chase in Spain, we see a close up of the crumpled radiator on Melina's 2CV, and one of the black cars is directly behind the car at this point. But in the next shot when the 2CV goes around a corner, the black car is much further away than it was in the previous shot. (Widescreen version.)
Continuity mistake: When Bond and Melina are in the shipwreck, underwater, and the guy inside the robot attacks, look at the Atac(when the robot man grabs it from Bond) and the scuba gears - they are wet but not like being underwater.
Continuity mistake: When James is being chased by Eric the skiing expert he gets a ski pole shot out of his hand. He escapes by getting in an elevator going to the top of the ski jump. As he is going down the jump a guy bumps into him - James is only able to stay up because he has both poles again.
Continuity mistake: When Locque kills Lisl on the beach by running over her with his dune buggy, the impact breaks the passenger side headlight. When Bond's foot kicks the gun out of Locque's hand a little later on, the headlight that was dangling from the car moments earlier is now securely back in place.
Continuity mistake: When Bond throws a knife and kills Apostis during the climbing sequence, the blade hits Apostis in the centre of his chest. When the body lands on the ground and Columbo goes over to inspect him, the blade has moved to Apostis' left shoulder.
Continuity mistake: When the Neptune is hauled aboard and Kristatos begins talking, you can see his yacht in the background moving slowly. When Apostis takes the ATAC system away from Bond and Melina, the yacht is now much closer, at apparently the same speed.
Continuity mistake: When Q contacts Bond on his watch at the end of the movie, the time on the watch is around 9.20. When the parrot drops the watch in the water and starts sinking, the time on the watch is now around 11.55.
Continuity mistake: When Kristatos brings the Neptune sub up, Melina gets out, and stops at the bottom of the ladder, still holding the handrails. In the very next shot, she is standing off the ladder and closer to Bond.
Continuity mistake: When the two black cars leave Gonzales' estate to pursue Bond and Melina, look at the first car and you can see the driver is not the same one who appears later on in the chase.
Continuity mistake: Bond fixes the end of his rope with a spring-loaded camming device (which is unsuitable for lose, porous rock by the way). When Apostis tries to dislodge him, the end loop of the rope is fixed to a piton - it has to be, because SLCDs literally cannot be knocked out of the rock.Doc
Continuity mistake: When Bond jumps over the two henchmen shooting at him during the ski chase, he causes one of the henchmen to fall over. As he falls over, his motorbike does too, but the bike is back upright again immediately when Kriegler skis over them.
Continuity mistake: When the three ice-hockey players are warming up on the ice rink, you can see there is a puck next to the goal, but when the players start charging towards Bond, the puck has disappeared.
Continuity mistake: As Locque speeds away from the burning warehouse, Bond shoots two bullet holes in his rear window which disappear and reappear in subsequent shots.
Continuity mistake: After the motorcyclist crashes through the flower shop window, he lays 10 meters into the shop, with the seller standing behind him holding a bouquet. A frame later, when Bond shows up by the window shop, the bouquet is inches away from him. She must have had a 10 meters long arm to make this possible.Sacha
Continuity mistake: When the Countess is struck and killed by the dune buggy, she collapses and her dress flips up, revealing her bikini bottom. But when Bond finds her moments later, the dress has covered her bikini.
Continuity mistake: After Bond has seized control of the helicopter in the pre-credits sequence, he can be seen wearing a set of headphones at one point, but seconds later they have disappeared.
Continuity mistake: In the scene when Bond shoots Locque's car window and the car is hanging over the edge of the cliff, Locque puts his hand on the door when the car starts to fall, but in the next shot when Bond kicks the car over the cliff, his hand is no longer on the door.
Continuity mistake: When Bond is fighting the diver over the ATAC, Bond is holding onto it with his left hand. The diver then sends Bond crashing through a glass window, and when it cuts to the next shot, Bond is now holding onto the ATAC with his right hand.
Continuity mistake: When Bond is climbing up to the mountaintop fortress, he hammers in pitons as he goes up. But when he falls down, the three pitons are all level.
