Continuity mistake: When Data's 'bully blinders' are on, just as the bulbs dim, in the close-up Data's cartridge holder hangs over his right shoulder to his left hip instead of the opposite way, as seen in the previous and following shots. Interestingly, this is not due to a flipped shot. (00:48:20)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Mrs. Walsh shows Rosalita the house, the attic door is open and we see that it opens at the left, with the wallpapered wall behind it and nothing in front of it except the banister. When Brand opens that door and the boys rush up, we see the wallpapered wall behind it, only this time the attic door opens at the right. (00:11:25 - 00:13:50)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Andy begins to lose it in the tunnel, Brand holds one lit lantern at the head of the line and Mouth holds another lit lantern at the back of the line (Mikey holds an unlit lantern). Next shot the lit lanterns have switched, just as they reach Chester Copperpot and Andy screams. Then in the next wideshot before it pans to the skeleton, the lantern Brand holds up switches yet again. (00:53:15)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: In the beginning scene of the cop calling out the inmates for their lunch, just as he calls "Hey Turkey." you can see the shadow of the supposedly hanged Jake Fratelli on the right wall. The shadow is totally inconsistent with the design of the cell and position Jake was hanging in. (00:00:45)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where they are playing the bone-organ to escape, the Fratellis walk across the beam then climb the rocks to get to the room where the Goonies are. In one of the rocks there is a tall metal post sticking up. A shot shows one Fratelli brother stick his hand on this post to pull himself up, but in the next shot the hand is gone and a moment later the Fratellis emerge from the water.
Continuity mistake: When you first see Andy's hands being tied, you can see that they are tied fairly tight. Right before she goes off the plank, you'll see that the rope is barely around one wrist. In the next shot as she is going into the water, you can see her holding her elbows with both her hands. Then when Brand rescues her the rope is secure again. (01:32:40)
Continuity mistake: When the Fratellis leave the County Jail, the first police cruiser which makes the U-turn has a smooth chrome bumper with only a recessed license plate at the center, but when they make the first left turn, that squad car now has a chrome bumper with driving lights at each end and bumper guards on both sides of the license plate. It's funny how when they make the next right turn, the car style actually changes mid-turn, between shots - just before the second police cruiser joins the pursuit. (00:02:25)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When the back of the Fratelli's ORV is riddled with bullet holes, you can see they make a distinctive backwards "L" shape above the Jeep letters. Later, when Chunk examines the ORV, the bullets holes are now in different places than they were before. Also, the license plate that is seen on the ORV when it is hit by the bullets, changes design as well. (00:02:45 - 00:30:30)
