Deliberate mistake: When Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman are talking together inside the boxes, Alex has three holes in his box allowing light in for him. Melman, Marty and Gloria have that too, but Gloria's box is lying under Alex's and Marty's, so it can't get as much light - but it does.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: It's not shown anywhere how deep Gloria's box is, so it can easily be deeper than Alex's and Marty's and the holes can be further then their boxes reach.

In the scene after they fall off the boat, we see all 3 dimensions of Gloria's box, and it is indeed the same depth as all the others.

The boxes are all the same size so the mistake is valid.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, when Marty finds the snow-bullet in Alex's mouth, he puts it in the Alex thing collection, but the collection wasn't there before and it disappears after that. (00:01:55)

Trivia: There is a scene when the lemurs are showing a book called "To Serve Lemur". This is similar to one of the classic episodes of The Twilight Zone, "To Serve Man" when the "aliens" allegedly come in peace but actually want to eat the people of earth.
