Continuity mistake: During one of the scenes when Brad Pitt arrives home, he is driving a Lincoln Town Car, not his Cadillac. This is the car that he doesn't get until later, when he steals it and drives home during the scene when they crash the cars into each other at the end of the driveway.

Daioni

Deliberate mistake: When Brad Pitt is in his garage and cleans the spot on this collar, he should have turned the car's mirror to the left to see himself. Instead, he turns the mirror to the right so the camera can get a view of his collar. (Yes, it's a common filmmaking technique, to show viewers what he's looking at, but it IS still a mistake.)

Factual error: In the scene that depicts the Smiths meeting each other, they are supposed to be in Bogota, Colombia. The tropical village they're in looks very little like Bogota, a gigantic metropolis with over 9 million inhabitants and very cold weather.

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when the Smiths are hiding in the shed, from the inside the front of the shed and the door have several bullet holes (as do the sides), but in the long shot of the shed, the front is in perfect condition.

Continuity mistake: When the Smiths steal the van from the Coleman's, a cross on a rope is hanging from the rear view mirror. During the BMW chase, the rope goes from being almost a foot long to about two inches long.

Continuity mistake: While being chased by the 3 BMWs, the passenger's headrest of the Dodge minivan driven by Brad changes from a 1-piece (part of the seat), to a headrest that you can adjust the height and it keeps changing during the scene.

Add time

Factual error: When John and Jane are in the elevator at the end, they're both holding MP5A4 submachine guns. The charging handle on both of them are in the open and locked position, making firing of the weapon impossible.

Add time

Factual error: While John is crawling through the sewer pipes, Jane's monitor shows his GPS location as 47.28 N 12.46 W, 35 feet below sea level. This places him under the Atlantic Ocean, somewhat north of the tip of Spain - nowhere close to New York, or any other streets for that matter.

Continuity mistake: After the botched hit in Mexico, Jane returns to her office, a little beaten up, and her associates tend to her wounds. Particularly clear is an injury to her right shoulder - it has bled enough to mark her singlet top, and is covered by a large piece of plaster. Yet when she dances with John in the restaurant, only a few hours later, there is no sign of plaster or wound.

BillyBlake

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Jane is trying to run over John with her car, she jumps from the driver's seat while John is in the back of the car. Right before the car crashes through the fence, you see John through the back window. You also see a head in the driver's seat, even though no one is supposed to be driving the car.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Jane and John Smith are fighting each other in their house, John Smith is left with several large scratches on his left cheek. Throughout the rest of the movie, his scratches change size, position and shape.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie when John and Jane are in the shed and taking off their suit coats, there is no slit or hole in John's right pant leg where, minutes before, it had been punctured by Jane's wayward knife.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When John and Jane steal their neighbor's minivan (after their house explodes) and back out the driveway, an assassin jumps onto the back. John hits the brakes and the assassin falls off onto the ground beside the van. In the next shot it is implied that the van runs over the assassin (two bumps), but John has not turned the steering wheel.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When John and Jane open the door to greet the neighbours after the fight, Jane is on John's right side under his arm. In the next clip she's on his left side.

Jacob La Cour

Factual error: During the highway chase scene, the cars crash through the barriers on the highway, but they are filled with water. In areas like New York these are filled with sand, because the water would freeze in the winter.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase, the wound on John's cheek changes colour between shots.

Jacob La Cour

Other mistake: After the Smith's house blows up both John and Jane's white shirt's are really really dirty but when they're driving in the stolen van their shirts are bleach white again except for the blood stains.

Add time

Continuity mistake: During the car chase on the freeway, Jane forces one of the pursuing cars off the road by driving, with it, through those large barrels of water near freeway exits. Water cascades over the cars; one interior shot shows that it's virtually impossible to see through the windscreen. Yet in the next shot, a few seconds later, all the cars are completely dry.

Continuity mistake: During the beginning scenes of the car chase, the golf bag moves in the trunk. In the first clip there are some bags in front of it, but in the next it's all the way in the back of the trunk.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Pitt is chasing after Jolie, he crashes through a fence and fires his gun, hitting the car's windshield. To the left of where Pitt is, you'll notice that there's one rail missing in the middle. When he climbs through the fence to the street, the fence rail has returned, and the hole left by Pitt is now slightly wider, just enough for him to climb through.

BillyBlake

Continuity mistake: During the car chase you see several clips where the car's sides are bumped and have bullet holes, but also several clips where the cars sides are in pristine condition.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Jane and John are fighting in their house, John runs by and knocks the teapot over. He fumbles with it then grabs it with the top facing him. In the next shot, the top is facing away from him, so that it may proceed to fall off.

Revealing mistake: When Jane catches the wine bottle that John drops, you can see her holding a second bottle in her hand before he drops his.

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

Suggested correction: You can assume that's how they filmed it, but nothing seen in that shot suggests that there were two bottles, since Jane's arm is never even in the frame before John drops the bottle.

balistener

Continuity mistake: When Jane enters her house with the girls, the front door has a chain door lock. When John enters with the neighbor there is no chain door lock.

Continuity mistake: After John races Jane home and goes in through the back, he breaks a pane of glass square with his elbow to unlock the door. About 1 second later, the break in the glass is different and no sound is heard of more glass falling off to change the shape.

Continuity mistake: During the fight in the house John gets two cuts in the face. But even seconds after the fight ends, the cuts no longer bleed, and the blood is dry.

Continuity mistake: John shoots Jane's car, but in the later shots of the film, the holes of the bullets are gone.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the scenes prior to the Smith's house being blown up, when Jane is wearing only a white shirt, she is not wearing a watch. In the scene just after their house is blown up, where they are lying in the yard, Jane is wearing a watch.

Continuity mistake: When John comes home after discovering Jane's identity his neighbour says his car is on the sidewalk. But in the next shot it is not.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When John and Jane are having breakfast on the floor after their huge fight, John eats something out of a tall silver container. He then puts it on the floor next to Jane, who picks it up and sticks a spoon in to get some of what's in there. It then cuts to a closer shot of the pair, and Jane is chewing on the food and putting the container down, even though she didn't put it in her mouth.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When John smashes a window to break into their house, the size and shape of the hole in the glass changes between shots.

Add time

Jacob La Cour

Revealing mistake: When Pitt is on the roof of Jolie's car, he breaks the window in order to get into the car. First off, when played in slow motion, the feet never do touch the glass before it explodes. Second, all newer vehicles have shatter proof glass both on the windshield and the side windows. In real life the glass would have just cracked, not blown out as it did in the film.

BillyBlake

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jane and John are driving the stolen minivan and fighting the BMW's on the bridge, the sliding side door and hatch alternate between shots of being opened and closed. Jane's hair flies around from the door being open, before it is ever opened for the first time. These changes occur between wide and close-up shots, and between Jane's and John's close-ups, throughout the entire scene.

Add time

Continuity mistake: One of the times that Angelina Jolie uses her binoculars to watch the approaching convoy of humvees in the desert, she increases the magnification. At the same time, the view changes from showing the vehicles head-on to showing them more from the side.

Add time

Factual error: In the scene when Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are being chased by their headquarters on the freeway, Brad Pitt opens the trunk of the van they are driving in. In the type of van they were driving you can only open the trunk if it's in park and it wasn't their van, it belonged to their neighbours, so it wouldn't have any special treatment.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Brad and Angelina are in the basement right before it blows up, Brad is holding a 6 shooter and when he is running out of the basement the second he runs outside and starts shooting he is holding a different gun.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase scene, the minivan driven by Brad sometimes has its left tail light and sometimes does not. This mistake is visible several times during the scene.

Add time

Plot hole: If all the marksman that are chasing Jane and John are professionals then wouldn't at least ONE bullet hit them in a major artery or something? They're all terrible shots.

sunfox35

Other mistake: In the scene where Jane and John race home, we see Jane smashing her Mercedes C320 wagon into John's Lincoln town car. Both these vehicles have airbags, yet they do not deploy upon the impact between the two cars.

Marinus

Other mistake: When Jane is driving with John on the roof, she jumps out when John breaks through the window. The car then proceeds to accelerate through the trees and into the air. The road is not downhill and Jane didn't place anything on the gas pedal.
