Continuity mistake: Soon after the Gremlins hatch from their cocoons, Billy goes to the school to check on the professor. When he walks into the classroom, he leaves the door open. Later, when he leaves the classroom, he has to open the door again. (00:49:20 - 00:50:30)
Continuity mistake: When the old man is leaving the family's home, in the indoors shot as he turns to walk out the front door, he is holding Gizmo's box under his right arm, and has the "smokeless ashtray" in his left hand. Cut to the outside shot of him walking through the door, and he is suddenly holding the Mogwai box by it's handle, and has nothing in his left hand. (01:42:00)Twotall
Continuity mistake: This is in the scene near the beginning of the movie at the bar where Billy's girlfriend works. Billy is sitting at a table drawing. He is joined by the Vice President of the bank he works at. He sits down and starts talking to Billy. Billy looks up at him while he's talking. Then in the next shot, which shows them both, Billy is looking down at his drawing as if he weren't even paying attention. (00:14:10)
Randall Peltzer: Well, that's the story. So if your air conditioner goes on the fritz. Or your washing machine blows up. Or your video recorder conks out; before you call the repairman, turn on all the lights, check all the closets and cupboards, look under all the beds. Cause you never can tell. There just might be a gremlin in your house.
Trivia: At the beginning of the film, when Billy is late for work, you see two films playing at the movie theater: "A Boy's Life" and "Watch the Skies." The former was the original title for "E.T." and the latter was the original title for a proposed sequel to "Close Encounters of the Third Kind." Two films directed by executive producer Steven Spielberg. (00:08:30)
