Revealing mistake: In the shot of Tinkerbell flying across the screen with the vine (to trip up the Lost Boy twins) if you look closely you can see the wire that is attached to the vine, which is being used to pull it across. (00:52:50)

Continuity mistake: At the imaginary dinner with Peter and the Lost Boys; when Rufio throws his plate across the table at Peter, in this shot and the next few shots that follow, the large black pan that sits on the table in front of Peter keeps moving closer then further away from his plate. (01:11:10)

Continuity mistake: When Peter first walks into the clearing of the Lost Boys hideout, there is a vine hanging from the tree that is touching the floor (which Peter steps into) and the vine has excess which is curled up in a large pile on the ground. But when it shows Peter stepping into the vine, it is only curled round in one circle - not the large pile it was beforehand. (00:49:40)

Continuity mistake: After Peter has been shot with the goo arrows (which stain his shirt) after they hit his chest, in the very next shot the positions of the arrows on his chest have changed to different places than they were previously. (00:52:35)

Continuity mistake: When Hook is talking to Peter on the ship, he is wearing his eyeglasses as he examines him and his scar, to see if it really is Peter Pan. But as soon as he turns and walks away from Peter his eyeglasses have vanished from his face. (00:42:55)

Continuity mistake: When Smee is standing on the stairs, making his introduction speech for Captain Hook's entrance, the bandana ties that hang down on his back change position a few times, most noticeable when he turns around to walk back up the the top of the staircase. (00:38:10)

Continuity mistake: When the mermaids are saving Peter, the second redheaded mermaid that swims over to him grabs his waist and kisses him. But in the very next facial closeup her hands are suddenly up by his neck. (00:48:20)

Continuity mistake: When Rufio and the Lost Boys are circling Peter (after he has dropped in their hideout), Rufio is standing in front of him brandishing his sword. In one shot he holds the sword out above him but in the next shot he is holding it down by his side. (00:51:45)

Revealing mistake: When Captain Hook reveals the blackboard with the "lesson" written on it, he underlines the word 'Hate' with chalk. However you can clearly see a faint smudged line already under the word (from a previous take) exactly where Hook draws the line. (01:05:45)

Continuity mistake: When Moira grabs the phone from Peter's hands and throws it out the window, as the phone falls to the ground and then when it lands, the length at which the phone's antenna is sticking out keeps changing from shot to shot. (00:14:50)

Continuity mistake: From when Smee and Captain Hook are inspecting Peter's scar onboard the ship, to later in the film when the Lost Boys are painting Peter's bare chest, the proportions of the scar (size, shape, location) are completely different. (00:42:25 - 01:06:00)

Continuity mistake: When Moira and Peter are at Wendy's beside, as she rests after being shaken at her honourary dinner, we can see a book sitting on the bedside table and it is resting at a crooked angle. But when Wendy askes Peter to hand it over to her, the camera zooms in for a closeup of the book which is now sitting at a perfectly straight and neat angle. (00:26:10)

Continuity mistake: Hook has Jack and Maggie caught in a large rope net which dangles from the ship's mast. When the net is hoisted up and Hook tells Peter he must fly up and touch their hands, in the wideshot we see the large rope net swinging back and forth in the air. But in the next shot as it focuses on a shot of Jack and Maggie in the net, it is at a complete stand still and is not swinging at all. (00:44:25)

Continuity mistake: When Peter is sitting at the foot of the bed, talking to Moira about how he has to take the phonecall (as the phone rings in his hand), between shots he differs from having the phone either held down in his lap to up by his face. (00:14:40)

Continuity mistake: When Captain Hook walks across the ship and up to the pirate that bet against him finding Peter Pan, we see Peter standing to the side (between the pirate and Hook) and he moves the eyepatch that he is wearing across from his right eye to his left eye. As he does this, the eyepatch strap falls off the right spectacle. But in the next shot the eyepatch strap has now moved back up and is resting perfectly across the glass frame of the right spectacle. (00:40:20)

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene at the school play as the shots change from wide views of the audience, to closeups of Moira and the children, the positions of everyone sitting around them continues to change. In addition the people standing up in the background keep moving, and in some shots we can see people standing with camcorders, but then in the next shots there is nobody with a camcorder visible. (00:01:10)

Continuity mistake: When Hook is talking to Peter on the ship, he stuffs the eyepatch and glasses Peter's wearing into his mouth to act like a gag. Then when Hook removes them from his mouth, we see that he takes the eyepatch from out his mouth twice between angles. (00:42:35)

Continuity mistake: After Smee introduces Captain Hook for his appearance on the ship (to make his speech to his fellow pirates), as he emerges from the door he leaves it wide open behind him. But as the scene continues and Hook is talking, pacing back and forth, etc., how wide open the door is keep changing (from wide open, half shut or practically closed). (00:38:30)

Continuity mistake: Peter is underwater, bound with ties around his hands but then three mermaids swim to him and help him. However the amount of glitter that is spread on the mermaids differs; this is especially evident with the first bluehaired mermaid that kisses him - look at the amount on her hands as she kisses Peter and rests her hands on his shoulders. (00:48:00)

Continuity mistake: In the airplane, Jack begins to throw his baseball against the window, to show his Dad (Peter) that it is thick and will not break. When he does this, it causes the oxygen masks to be dropped down in front of them. Between shots the positions of the masks and the straps wrapped around them differs. In addition in the first shot Peter grabs them to stop them from swinging about, but in the next shot his hands are instantly back in his lap. (00:07:40)

Toodles: Lost, lost, lost.
Peter: Lost what, Toodles?
Toodles: I've lost my marbles.
Peter: [To himself] OK.

Question: Is the food fight scene completely imaginary, or are the Lost Boys actually able to will food into existence by imagining it? I always thought it was the latter growing up and we as the audience didn't see it until Peter, as the audience's proxy, saw it for himself, but any YouTube videos I watch about this movie all seem to think all the food was just in everyone's collective imaginations.

Answer: Neverland very much runs on "If you believe, it will happen" which is what Tink means during the meal when she says "If you don't imagine yourself as Peter Pan you won't be Peter Pan." So by the rules of Neverland, as soon as Peter believed it was real it was then real. The dinner was trying to teach him to believe as, in Neverland, if you don't believe it then it won't happen.
