Continuity mistake: When we see Peter riding on his scooter after just visiting Aunt May and telling her he's going to ask MJ to marry him, we can see that Peter is wearing his safety helmet with the strap fastened under his chin, yet when the hobgoblin knocks him off of his scooter and into the air the helmet can be seen flying away like it wasn't even fastened up and secure.

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: Before MJ throws the chunk of concrete at Venom, she has her arms raised holding the chunk in the air. In the close-up of Venom's face MJ can be seen in the background, resting calmly in the cab. Then, when back to a close-up of her, she is holding the chunk as before.

Continuity mistake: The news reporter is looking upwards and has no camera in front (if she did, a big beam of light would've been on her face). However, when half a second later the angle changes to the news host, the woman is looking down with a camera focusing directly at her.

Continuity mistake: When Spidey makes Venom explode and watches the metal bars around melted, the one in front is really twisted. Couple seconds later, from another angle, the bar is just sightly bent.

Continuity mistake: The first time we hear MJ's answering machine message, she says something along the lines of "Sing your song after the beep, 'beep'" then we hear the electronic beep. The second time it sounds exactly the same, so she hasn't re-recorded it, except this time her message cuts off before she makes the beeping sound.

Plot hole: In this movie Goblin was able to sneak up on Peter. But in the previous movies Peter was able to sense danger from quite a distance away; Green Goblin from a few blocks and the train barricade from over a mile.
