The Goonies

Other mistake: When Data shoots a suction cup at Mrs. Fratelli's gun you can see Mouth in the background with his mouth open. Later Mrs. Fratelli pulls a ridiculous amount of jewels out of his now full mouth. DVD commentary offers an explanation to this, but it is still a mistake.

Continuity mistake: At the Astoria Country Club, when the first shower handle disappears into the wall, the three surrounding tiles break off entirely from the wall. After the next few handles disappear, the wall with the first disappearing handle is shown, but now the square tiles are intact and only cracked.

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: When Chunk and Rosalita are eyeballing each other regarding the statue, there are colored curtains and sheer white curtains hanging from white rods on the two windows behind Chunk (behind the recliner). When Mikey unrolls the map in his kitchen, through the doorway we see that the sheer curtains are gone and now there are shades behind the colored curtains. (00:12:30 - 00:22:25)

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: When Brand says, "Why couldn't I have had a little sisterÂ…instead of that?" it cuts to Mikey as he raises his left arm to the 'triple stones', but next close-up it's his right arm that is raised. (01:10:20)

Super Grover

Revealing mistake: When Brand moves the rock and hundreds of bats fly, note that the blatant fake rock has a chunk of painting missing, revealing the white material underneath.


Other mistake: The Fratellis catch up with the Goonies near the waterfall. Francis shoots his gun upwards but the rocks that fall on him come from behind him.


Revealing mistake: Right in the beginning car chase when Josh Brolin's name is on the screen the car runs under a tree and the shadow of that tree cast over the car shows the stuntman driving, not mama Fratelli. (00:03:00)


Visible crew/equipment: When Sean finds that dirty old treasure map in the attic and tells them all the story about one-eyed Willy, behind Brandon and Mouth you can see some visible camera crew with a camera edging away from them in the shadows. (00:17:50)


Continuity mistake: While the Fratelli's carry the corpse bag, the hood on Mike's yellow raincoat changes positions between shots.


Continuity mistake: When Data shoots the suction dart at the orange drum, he stands in front of grey drums and other junk, but in the close-up as Data opens the belt's dart compartment, the area behind him is completely different. (00:03:50)

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: During the jail escape, when Jake is trying to open the locked door, there is a close-up of Mama Fratelli shouting, "Jake, up!" and we see a police cruiser parked on her left. When they leave, in the overhead shot that space is empty, but next shot a vehicle is there, though it isn't a police cruiser. (00:01:55)

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: When the kids first see the Inferno, in the wideshot facing all of them, Brand stands between Stef and Mouth with Data and Mikey off to the side, but next shot facing the ship Brand is now at the other side hugging Mikey. (01:23:50)

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: When the kids first see the the skeleton bone keys, Stef and Andy are arm in arm with each other, but next shot facing the skeleton Stef is standing behind Andy. (01:18:15)

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: When the first police car makes a U-turn, to chase the Fratellis, the squad car's front passenger window is rolled up, as the officer's hands are on the steering wheel. But in the next interior shot, facing that window, it's rolled down - there's even a black wire hanging over the bottom of the open window, to the left. (00:02:30)

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: When Mouth goes down the hole in the fireplace passageway, the cooler base is right beside the fireplace, but when Mikey pushes Data and his backpack into the hole, the base is farther away. When Brand pulls the log holder over the hole the base is back, right beside him, but when Chunk heads for the basement window the base is farther away again. (00:45:45 - 00:47:20)

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: In the first overhead shot of Chester Copperpot, his entire ribcage and his right arm bone are visible. In the following shots the boulder lies more than halfway up his ribcage and the arm bone is not visible any longer. (00:53:35)

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: When the Fratellis drive away from the Lighthouse Lounge with the corpse wrapped in the black plastic, the boys duck down behind a rock and a large piece of driftwood. Their positions are completely different between the front and back shots. (00:36:45)

Super Grover

Data: Holy S-H-I-T!

Trivia: When Chunk calls the police the officer mentions 'those little creatures that multiply when touched by water'. This is of course Gremlins, which was also executive produced by Steven Spielberg and Corey Feldman has a role.
