54 mistakes

Continuity mistake: Mr. Beaupre is talking to Alex in the garage, and Alex walks backwards away from him, he nearly touches the wooden shelf behind him. When it cuts to a wideshot Alex is now much further away from the shelf, and when it cuts to another closeup he once again walks back into the shelf.

Continuity mistake: When the FBI are rushing to reach Alex, as the snowploughs sweep the spy's car aside the front plough sweeps to the left. Further down the street the front plough sweeps to the right.

Deliberate mistake: When one of the bad guys looks through the mail box slot, Alex sprays him in the eyes with black spray paint. Meaning the spray paint must have actually gone INTO his eyes, yet when he turns around, its only around the outer part of his eyes and no where in his eye balls.

Plot hole: The main criminal puts on the "butt inspection gloves" whilst searching the first house, but when Alex sees him through the telescope he pulls down the blinds and has black gloves on. Returning outside, they revert back. However, how does Alex know the criminal donned the rubber gloves (when he describes him to his mother), if he saw what we saw through the telescope - the black gloves?

Continuity mistake: In the very first shot of the Mom, she carries in a load of boxes. Two green ones are included, one with writing above the other. When she unstacks them, the shot pans out a little bit, and the boxes are positioned differently.

Continuity mistake: When Unger gets run over by his criminal partner, look at the driver side window. Making initial contact with the car, it is closed. For the close up shot, it's wide open, and when the car turns, it's only open a couple of inches.

Audio problem: When Unger shoots his pistol into the sewerpipe in the basement, his gun has a silencer but the gunshot you hear is not silenced.

Factual error: During the remote control car chase the bad guys' minivan drives directly over it at one point. From the view of the toy car, you can see a driveshaft running down the centre of the undercarriage, which would be impossible on a front-wheel-drive vehicle like the Nissan Quest they're driving, which use half axles to drive the front wheels.

Continuity mistake: Alex's Dad hangs up the steamer in the attic, when Alex informs him that his taxi arrives. The metal holder the steamer hangs on changes position with every shot.

Add time

Continuity mistake: At one point, the mother gets an audible page. When she looks at the display to see the number, you can clearly see that the pager is set to "silent."

Continuity mistake: Alex puts the present down to take off his hat and scarf, by the front door. Between shots the present moves a few inches closer to the bag next to it.

Other mistake: When Alex's mum calls the woman thief at the scene where the thieves are redirecting the phone calls, the screen shows Alex's mum dialling a number. The call is redirected to the thief's mobile, but notice that on the computer screen, "Interrupt" is spelled wrong, and instead is spelled "Interupt".

Skarn

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Beaupre takes the control car apart, he holds the bottom of the car which has the wheels on it in his left hand, and the top of the car in his right hand. The shot changes and the two parts of the car have swapped over into the other hand instantly.

Continuity mistake: When Mrs. Hess gets off the plane to Chicago, in a wideshot as she places her bags down, her scarf hangs out of the bag, yet in the closeup of her taking out the scarf it is tucked in the bag.

Factual error: In real life (there are a couple of scenes like this) snow doesn't fall from the sky at the intensity it was from clear skies.

Continuity mistake: When Miss Hess leaves the plane after landing in Chicago, she takes a scarf out of the Parisian bag she has accidentally picked up. Surely she would have noticed the items within the bag were not hers when she put the scarf in the bag?

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Alex's mum is about to leave his room after applying lotion to his chest. Alex's hair is slightly scruffy - when the shot comes back to him after being on the mum his hair is combed and neat.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Beaupre and Unger get smashed by the trunk of books, it shows them clearing the books off them. When they are shown again, Beaupre still has a book on his chest.

Revealing mistake: It's obvious the snow is fake. You can see when Alex runs outside in his pajamas.

Other mistake: When Jernigan says, "Gotcha" when Alex comes into the room and Jernigan falls, it shows him falling but his expression doesn't seem like he is actually scared.
