Honey I Shrunk The Kids

Honey I Shrunk The Kids (1989)

38 mistakes

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Amy lets Wayne know that breakfast is ready, she presses a button labeled breakfast. There are other items on the box, such as lunch, dinner, and phone. When they show the board flashing the word breakfast, you can see that the word breakfast is the only word the board can display between flashes.

Continuity mistake: When Amy is in the kitchen cleaning, she starts mopping the floor, then dancing with the mop held upside down. The mop starts out wet, but when she's dancing it's dry (either that or she would be getting dirty mop water in her face while the mop is being flung around).
