Continuity mistake: When the Ghostbusters are heading for the building, there's a wide view of New York bathed in a sunset light with a red and blue sky. In further close-up shots, there is a clear sunny light everywhere. (01:15:20)

Suggested correction: Most likely the result of the supernatural clouds forming around the building.

If such were the reason it would be the other way around: it should be dark near the building where the ghost-clouds are, but it's not. Therefore it's a continuity mistake due to the scenes being shot in different days.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when everyone is waving to the Ghostbusters and Ray is backing up the car, on the light bar on Ecto 1, the outer lens is a solid blue light bar. When the car goes to drive away, it's a clear light bar with blue lens covers over each individual rotator.

Suggested correction: The light bars on the front and back of the roof of Ecto-1 are blue but have a solid white colored portion in the center, and nothing about them changes in between shots.

Trivia: The brief dream-scene in which Ray appears to receive oral sex from an attractive female spirit was originally part of a much larger sequence, but it was removed for both time and ratings reasons.
