Continuity mistake: When Alex first takes out the bubble-squirting gun and threatens Olek Krupa's character with it, the muzzle looks like what one might see on a real gun.

Continuity mistake: The main bad guy has Alex cornered in Mrs. Hess' garage. Look at the clear plastic cup behind Alex. One shot the cup is upright, the next it is on its side.
