Audio problem: When the Bat Exterminator is pointing at the book in the attic, he says "Some kid said she saw a bunch of those back in the 60's." His mouth is visible in the screen, however it doesn't move at all. (00:18:50)

Audio problem: When Van Pelt is chasing Alan outside the house, he turns to shoot at Carl the cop. If you count the shots heard fired, there is one more hole than bullets heard. (00:56:15)

Audio problem: When Alan is trapped by the floor he is given a wooden log and then tosses it away. The foley artist forgot to add the thump of the log crashing on the floor.

Continuity mistake: When the insect sits on the windowshield of the car Robin Williams says that the insects can't make a hole, they are safe, then the insect makes a hole, the car drives away creating havoc on the road because of extreme bad driving. The car stops, they get out, then there is no hole in the windowshield. (00:40:10)

Question: When Alan has reached Jumanji, why were the bullet and rifle pulled into the game? They weren't from the game, but purchased by Van Pelt from a gun store.

Answer: The game is essentially "resetting reality" back to the point Alan was first sucked into the game. So it is undoing everything that has been done - including taking away the gun and bullets Van Pelt had purchased.

Answer: The gun and bullets may have been from the real world but they were Van Pelt's property. He purchased them at the gun store. Apparently the game pulls in Van Pelt and anything of his he was using to hunt Alan. It makes sense that the game would do this because Alan defeats Van Pelt by following the rules of the game. Having Van Pelt be able to simply purchase a gun in the real world and kill a player with it even after they've completed the game would be a huge cheat.
