Continuity mistake: Dana chases the pram and a biker falls seconds before. She passes next to him and meters ahead, she falls on the curb with no one around. In the close-up, the bicycle has appeared next to her.

Revealing mistake: When Oscar is standing backwards on the ledge, he moves frame by frame like a robot, revealing it's a stop motion effect and not a real baby.

Revealing mistake: In the aerial angle of the Statue of Liberty walking down the streets, watch behind it: it is very evident where the matte painting was inserted: The street colour differs and the objects have way less definition.

Revealing mistake: When Lady Liberty walks down the street, the four Ghostbusters inside its crown are replaced with very obvious dolls.

Continuity mistake: When Louis is saying 'his place at 8' there is a guy in the background on the right hand side on the sidewalk. When it cuts to the long shot and he is almost hit by the taxi, the guy is gone. (00:56:00)

Continuity mistake: The first shot of Lady liberty walking down the streets and looking down at people is an obvious human face in disguise and makeup. In the close-up shot, it is a mask/miniature that doesn't look like the previous one, but does resemble the real Lady Liberty. This is not due to the statue being animated by ghosts, for the mistake takes place between one shot and another (besides, the statue is animated all the time), but because the FX was achieved combining a human in disguise and a miniature set.

Other mistake: At the end of the movie you see the Statue of Liberty looking down from the rooftop, and then you don't see it the next time we see the rooftop. Then it's on the ground. How can it move without them controlling it?

Suggested correction: Because it fell over, which requires only gravity.

Also I think they are not controlling it, the positive slime turned it sentient.

Continuity mistake: When the movie ends and all of the heroes exit the museum while the people cheer; they walk down all the steps, yet from the opposite angle they're back on the top and walking down again.

Continuity mistake: When Dana is watching the couple arguing she has her arms crossed. A frame later, from a different angle, they are not.

Dr. Peter Venkman: Kinda makes you wonder, doesn't it?
Winston Zeddemore: Wonder what?
Dr. Peter Venkman: Whether she's naked under that toga. She *is* French. You know that.

More trivia for Ghostbusters 2

Question: I recently saw Ghostbusters 2 on Spike TV. when the broadcast came to the point where Winston is pulled into the river of slim, before Vigon and Ray, I noticed the river of slime looked odd. It was as the river had been shrunken down, or the Ghostbusters were enlarged. Am I crazy? If I am not, then why would they make such a trivial alteration?

Answer: SpikeTV didn't alter the movie except for editing for time and content. The scene you saw was in the original film and the way the river looked was a combination of two things, the camera angle and the poor special effects of the time.
