Continuity mistake: Near the end, the Ghostbusters make the Statue of Liberty smash the window on the roof of the art museum before abseiling in. The window gets completely destroyed, but just after Vigo says 'Now we become one' we see the window again and it appears less damaged than before. (01:35:50)

Revealing mistake: When they gather around to watch what happens when you put the slime in the toaster, you can see when the toaster starts popping that it has little pneumatic pistons attached to the bottom, making it jump. When the toaster gets picked up off the table you can view its power cord which is entirely too big - more likely air lines. (00:41:15)

Visible crew/equipment: When they're yelling at the pink slime, one of them places a toaster next to the slime. A big lighting screen gets reflected on the metal structure.

Continuity mistake: While Dana is cleaning her baby for the bath, the bottle and sponge next to him move around between shots, the tissue popping out appears/disappears randomly, as does a towel on the corner.

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: In the museum, when Dana is trapped and the Ghostbusters lay on the floor, right before Vigo grabs the baby, Vigo's hair is fluffy and messed up. A shot later it's straight and neatly brushed.

Revealing mistake: When the [superimposed] pink slime and the bending tub try to attack Dana and Oscar, watch the tiles on the wall in front and you'll notice that they're not being reflected, just an empty space.

Suggested correction: The area circled is the reflecting surface. Which means the reflection (if it was even visible in the tiles) would appear as far to the right of the wall as the slime is to the left. It would be off-screen.

Just watch the movie scene for Christ's sake instead of basing your junk correction on a picture.

What is in the movie that would change the basic principles of optics? The picture is pretty clear as to what the setup is.

The camera moves around the bathroom and thus proves that the pink slime isn't reflected anywhere.

If that's the case, why did you illustrate the error with a frame where the reflection would not be visible? Can you post a picture where the reflection of the bathtub is visible but not the slime?

The wide shot has Sigourney Weaver running and thus a blurry image quality. Nevertheless, I'll try to get a good image. In any case, no-one expects someone correcting a mistake without checking the actual mistake.

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

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.

Continuity mistake: When the movie ends, Ray and Egon walk down the museum steps hugging each other. When the angle changes they are way apart from each other.

Continuity mistake: When Janusz is knocked out on the floor, his position keeps changing all the time depending on the angle.

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.
