New this month Other mistake: After the kids find Chester Copperpot's skeleton, Mikey picks up Copperpot's book and finds the Gehrig baseball card inside. When Mikey turns the card over it's the 1973 Topps Lou Gehrig All-Time Grand Slam Leader #472 (which has nine players' grand slam stats listed on the back of the card, that includes Hank Aaron who started playing MLB in 1954). The problem is Copperpot was reported as missing in 1935, but this specific Topps baseball card (now well known) was issued in 1973, nearly 40 years after Copperpot's death via the pirate booby trap.

Continuity mistake: During the jail breakout, when Jake tries to open the ORV's door, in the shot facing Francis he is holding the gun in his left hand as he tries to open the door for his brother with his right hand. In the next shot facing Jake just before shouts, "I don't have the handle, open the lock!" Francis's gloved left hand is empty, and next shot, the gun can be seen in his right hand.

Revealing mistake: At the start, when Data is being pulled towards the chained orange drum, due to the angle of the close-up, we see that the soles of Data's Nikes are not actually touching the ground (since there is a rolling mechanism under his feet). Despite the fact that Data is quite inventive, we see in the next shot there's nothing attached to Data's Nikes. (00:03:55)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After Chunk does the 'Truffle Shuffle' and Mikey releases the bowling ball, we see the horizontal piece of wood that is painted red and attached to the porch rail, from which the silver bucket is lowered. It's seen in many shots. What's funny is that in the first shot of the Walsh's house, after the Fratellis drive past at the bottom of the hill, that piece of wood is white, because it hasn't been painted red yet by the crew.

Continuity mistake: When Rosalita (black coat) pours the jewels into Mrs. Walsh's (beige coat) hands in the first close-up, the hand holding the jewels has long nails with colored nail polish. It cuts to a close-up of the Goonies looking down on that hand, and then cuts to a tighter close-up of just the hand holding the jewels, but now there is no nail polish on the thumbnail and the nail is shorter.

Other mistake: With Andy weighing at least 100 lbs, surely Troy and the guys trying to pull "her" up would notice that a bucket carrying the sweater is nowhere near the weight of a person. Even if they filled it with coins from the wishing well, it still wouldn't come close to the weight of an actual person, regardless of how idiotic and pompous Troy and his two friends are.
Continuity mistake: When Brand hangs upside down from the bar, we can see that the kitchen table and four chairs are right in front of the kitchen window. But when Mikey unrolls the map in the kitchen, Chunk, Data, Mikey and Mouth are standing directly in front of that kitchen window, which is completely impossible to do.

Continuity mistake: Outside the lighthouse restaurant as the Fratellis drive away, when Andy and Stef surprise Brand, Mikey and the others, Mikey's yellow rain slicker has a tear a few inches long, at the back of his left sleeve, that mends itself in following shots.
