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.

Audio problem: When Chunk flags down the car for help, he finds Jake Fratelli, who begins to sing loudly in Italian. Chunk screams, and as we hear Jake continue singing, we see his reflection in the side-view mirror as he is smoking a cigarette silently.

Other mistake: When Troy is in the country club restroom and is sitting on the toilet, he has his trousers down around his ankles. When he gets shot up and crashes into the ceiling, you will notice he has red briefs on, but surely he would have pulled them down too...

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Perkins hands Brand the foreclosure papers and then when the two men walk away, the picket fence door is shut, but when Mikey is alone on the porch as he looks at the two men, that fence door is wide open.

Continuity mistake: On the deck of the Inferno, when Mama is pulling the pearls from Mouth's mouth, Francis is tying up Andy's hands with black rope. When Mama asks, "Is that all?" the color of the rope is off-white, but it then changes back to the black rope in the following shots.

Continuity mistake: When Data starts the printing press, two closeups show the two $100 bill face templates on the machine as it prints the counterfeits, however, what is being printed on the papers are the images of $50 bills.

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.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, when the Fratellis are eluding the Police, Chunk witnesses the chase. In the first shot the slice of pizza is on the window. Next shot Chunk holds it in the air, and in the third shot the pizza is back in its place where it was in the first shot, with a saucy smear on the window.

Visible crew/equipment: When Troy is in the country club restroom, the toilet overflows and he gets pushed up to the ceiling, you can see that he is sitting on a platform. When the water shoots out, you can see the pole connected to the platform being raised up.

Continuity mistake: On the Inferno's deck, after Mouth spits out the jewels from his mouth, when Andy calls Mama, "You gross old witch," Francis is tying up Andy's hands and his sword is held between his legs, but in the next shot Francis is behind Stef and the sword instantly appears in his hand held high.

Continuity mistake: Before the 'bathroom' break, when Mikey holds up the map, the top of it is burned off and very few musical notes are actually there along its edge, but when they reach the skeleton's bone keys the top of the map is clean, with a musical score along the entire edge.

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene where Data is using his sticky dart on his belt and being dragged towards the full bin, it changes to being empty just before being pulled in!

Revealing mistake: At the Astoria Country Club, when Troy first sits down in the stall and opens the magazine, behind him are at least nine columns of small patterned tiles. In his next close-up as he looks around, the wall behind him is completely different. Now there are only six columns of larger unpatterned tiles, with a long vertical gap between the tiles (where the grout should be) - which is the track for the mechanism to lift Troy in the following shots.

Visible crew/equipment: When Francis Fratelli walks across the beam he slips and does a flip. In the wideshot, we see the sudden appearance of a riveted platform affixed to the beam, extending from its left side, directly in front of Francis.

Visible crew/equipment: When the Goonies are first climbing the ladder on the pirate ship to find one eyed Willy's gold, the second shot has a crew member waving his arm on the far left of the screen. (This is only visible in the widescreen version).

Continuity mistake: At the start, when Data practices with the blue suction dart, in the close-up as the dart flies out we can see the mechanisms inside Data's invention. When it cuts to a tighter close-up, suddenly there is a spinning spool welded inside, which was not in the previous shot, that is retracting the orange string.

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the basement, Chunk is about to drink from the water cooler bottle that is one fourth full. When he stands up and tries to catch it, it is almost full.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Revealing mistake: In the scene in the cave where Brand pulls back the rock and the bats fly out, there is a close-up of Mouth with bats flying in front of his face. You can clearly see the wires attached to the bats.

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.

Continuity mistake: When Chunk waits for the gate to open after doing the 'truffle shuffle', a red balloon starts to blow up, but next shot it's a pink balloon that pops.

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Perkins delivers the papers to Brand at the house, the men are holding umbrellas. The umbrella handle on the left is facing outward, but after it cuts to Brand then back to the men, it is facing inward and then changes again after another angle change.

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.
