Home Alone

Continuity mistake: After Kevin's whole family comes home, he walks straight to the window to look out. If he had done that, he would be looking out of the side of the house, but he is obviously looking out the front of the house to straight across the street.

Revealing mistake: When Harry tells Marv that he's sick of him leaving the water running in the house that they robbed, you can see Harry supposedly shift his van into drive. However, Harry does not even move the gear selector from park to drive.

Continuity mistake: When the delivery guy stands outside the door and Kevin plays the movie, in the shot from Kevin you see the red curtains are more wide open and you see the silhouette from the delivery guy. In the shot from the delivery guy the red curtains are suddenly more closed and his silhouette couldn't be showing through.

Visible crew/equipment: When the pizza guy arrives at the start, as he gets out of his car a stage light is reflected in the paintwork. This cannot be the street light as that is a more yellow and dull reflection, further along the car. (00:06:50)

Factual error: Kate flies American Airlines to Scranton, but that airline did not serve Scranton in 1990. Also, a DC-10 is too big to be serviced at Scranton.

Continuity mistake: When Frank squishes Fuller with the chair, we see Frank walk off. However about 5 seconds later we see Frank's wife rescue Fuller, and Frank walks off again. (00:09:35)

Suggested correction: Not a mistake. Frank never walks off the first time.

Perhaps the wrong phrase was used. He actually moves away from the front part of the seat to the left and out of shot of the camera. When the shot is shown of Frank's wife rescuing fuller, Frank repeats his actions of walking away from the front part of the seat and moving to his left. There is no reasonable reason he would move back in front of the chair for the purpose of repeating this action. Especially since his wife is trying to rescue Fuller and would not permit Frank to return to his original position. So the mistake is valid, just an error in wording.

Revealing mistake: When Marv is at the basement door trying to regain his stance, as he steps onto the icy ground, the "ice" bends and distorts the light just like a piece of plexiglass.
