Continuity mistake: When the statue starts to walk it has irons and cables attached to the sole of its sandals. When it's walking downtown the shoe is clean and like new (most likely the first miniature has been replaced by a human in disguise).

Revealing mistake: When the Statue of Liberty is about to smash the museum's glass dome, the shot outside is really bizarre: The Statue is standing on a park, with a pink cloud covering what is supposed to be the museum. Yet the lower part of the cloud plus the people around it, show that there is no building nor any foundations there: Just a superimposed pink cloud over an empty field.

Continuity mistake: When the slime is covering the museum an aerial view shows its surroundings empty. At the end of the movie, thousands of people gather around the place, yet the aerial view when the (superimposed) slime explodes is the earlier one, making it look as if the crowd had vanished, only to reappear a second later in close-ups.
