Continuity mistake: When the eggs are flying in Dana's kitchen, she approaches the counter and comes inches away from it, yet from a wider angle she is several meters away.

Continuity mistake: When the rooftop explodes, freeing the ghosts, an aerial view shows the people running away and a police car on the left of the main entrance. A closer angle shows a second police car on the right and a crowd next to the main entrance.

Continuity mistake: When the movie is about to end, the Ghostbusters are in front of the building and the pavement starts to crack open. A group of men by the door stumble off-screen to the left. Half a second later, a close-up shows the people repeating all the previous movements.

Continuity mistake: After Louis asks if anybody wants to play Parcheesi at his party, there is a lady sporting a red vest behind him, standing in front of a wall with framed photos. Two shots later, she's standing in front of the kitchen next to a bespectacled man. The very next shot, she's teleported back to where she was initially, in front of the wall. (00:53:25)

Continuity mistake: When Dana opens the door of her refrigerator and sees the temple with a terror dog, the shelf has a bottle with a green cap and a jar with a white lid at the end of it, but when Dana slams the refrigerator after the dog says "Zuul!", both items have disappeared.

Other mistake: Winston Zeddemore's surname is spelled as "Zeddmore" in the closing credits.

Revealing mistake: While the Ghostbusters ride to the building, there's a view of New York from the park under a red sky. Watch the buildings on the far left: They have a thick white outline around where the real sky was cut-out to allow for the new one to be put in.

Continuity mistake: When the road cracks and swallows the police car, the distance between the ambulance behind increases and decreases between shots.

Continuity mistake: When the Stay Puft monster appears and all the cars crash, a driver goes out of a grey car through the window. In a closer angle he is back inside and repeating the movement.

Continuity mistake: After the pavement cracks and swallows a police car, the chunks of broken pavement next to the car differ between shots. From a back view there are smaller pieces, but from a front view they are a couple of big and long chunks.

Continuity mistake: When Venkman and Stantz arrive at the public library, the group of people on the first wide angle differs from the one on the second. Check out the couple with the flower bouquets, who have suddenly appeared.

Continuity mistake: When the Ghostbusters run out of the library, an old woman in a blue coat is seen on the left side by the bottom of the steps. A second later she is all the way up and coming from the right side instead.

Visible crew/equipment: In the library scene, when the ghostbusters are walking towards the old lady to ask her questions, if you look behind Ray's head to the right you can see a set light with a white tarp in front of it on the second floor of the library. (00:07:35)

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Venkman is looking in Dana's refrigerator the items on the top shelf shift position, disappear and/or are replaced with other items. The large glass dish that was on the left of the Coke can is replaced by a small plate of food. The Coke can turns. There is also now a large bottle behind the Coke can. Clearly these 2 connected shots were filmed on different days and the items were stocked without regard for the previous shots items and positions.

Audio problem: When the Archbishop says "How are you, Lenny?" to the Mayor in his office, his lips don't match what he is saying.

Continuity mistake: When Winston says "I wanna make a phone call" to the guard in the jail, the guard closes the door of the cell twice.
