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)
Other mistake: In the scene where Mikey, Brand and Mouth are listing the exaggerations Chunk has come up with, Mouth says "And I bet it was even more amazing than the time you ate your weight in Godfather's Pizza." When he gets to the "Godfather's Pizza" bit, it becomes clear that this has been dubbed over the original filmed scene, as his mouth does not match his words in the slightest.
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
Factual error: When Mouth flattens the tires on Brand's bike, all he does to let the air out is take the valve caps off. There's actually a valve in the valve stem that needs to be depressed to let the air out. The cap is just there to keep dirt out of the valve, simply taking it off wouldn't let the air out.RJR99SS
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)
Continuity mistake: When Data activates his 'slick shoes' on the log bridge, the heels of the shoes pop open to reveal the 'slick shoes' mechanism which starts spraying oil. In the next shot though, they show Data walking across the log, the heels of the shoes are closed, and the oil squirts out of holes in the back of the heels apparently.RJR99SS
