Revealing mistake: Gizmo flies off a snow shovel on his car and it blows up. There is a noticeable edit here where the effect happens. It's likely the car didn't blow on the first take so they spliced two scenes together.

Revealing mistake: In the scene with the malfunctioning juicer, you can see the actor who plays Billy is about to laugh right before all the juice explodes out of the machine. As that is happening, you can see he has broken out into a full laugh. True, he might be showing some mirth over another one of his father's malfunctioning inventions, but he was about to break out into laughter before anything happens, and his laughter is inconsistent with his frustrated demeanor when Pete walks into the kitchen.

Revealing mistake: Just after the mum liquidises a Gremlin, she then has to deal with one throwing plates. If you look carefully, whenever the plates are thrown from the Gremlins perspective, whenever its left arm comes into shot, you can see the puppeteer's rod used to move it.

Quotes

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.
