Continuity mistake: At the very end on the beach, Chunk is wearing a knit hat, but Mouth is not (he took his off earlier). Then in the shot looking up at the Goonies, who are circled around the hand holding the jewels, Mouth is now wearing a knit hat and Chunk's hat has vanished, but next shot they've switched back again.

Continuity mistake: When Brand tells the others that the $50 bills are fake, Stef takes the newspaper with the Fratelli family mugshots off the post, from over the telephone. Then when Chunk gets the ice cream out of the freezer, the newspaper is back up on the post, but when the kids lift the dead body off the floor, the newspaper is missing from the post. Finally, in the shot just before Chunk shouts, "Guys, I'm stuck with the stiff," as the kids run into the fireplace, the tired newspaper is now lying on the printing press. (00:42:45 - 00:45:15)

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)

Revealing mistake: When Brand finds the skeleton key in the dirt, he holds it up as Mouth wipes the dirt off the three holes. It's actually quite funny seeing what is supposed to be Mouth's hands in the close-up, with its female manicured fingernails. (00:55:40)
