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.
Continuity mistake: Carl's cop car has the licence plate "G2298" which is printed thinly on the licence plate. Then, when the vine wraps around his car, and bends it in two, the licence plate is now "CFJB95", printed very boldly on the plate. The words "POLICE 004" also differ, as does the bumper and the lights. Totally new car, methinks...
Continuity mistake: When Peter runs out of the attic to the woodshed to get the axe, to the left of the attic door is a large filing cabinet, with nothing in front of it or beside it. Yet later when Peter is swinging the axe at the spiders, and following shots, a green suitcase has appeared in front if it.

Continuity mistake: When the monkeys are causing chaos in the kitchen, a monkey throws three knives at the kids. Two of them stay in the door, but one bounces off and only makes a nick in the wood. Later in the film, when Robin Williams is in the kitchen, and he blocks the door, you can see that the two knives that were stuck in the door are still there, but the nick in the wood has gone.
Continuity mistake: When Sarah, Judy and Peter are in the store, where the riot is going on, they spot the Jumanji Board Game sitting on the till counter. To the right of the till is a very large "Sand and Water Activity Table" box. In one shot the box it facing so you can see the upper part/top of the box. It then cuts, and the box has mysteriously rotated 180°, so that you can now see the lower part/bottom of the box! In the same shots, there is a trolley by the till, with some items and a box in it. Cut back to the trolley and there's now two boxes in it! It then cuts, and the box is back to it's original position, and the box in the trolley disappears! If you look more closely, the entire shelf unit behind the counter is completely different!!!
Continuity mistake: When Peter rolls the dice prior to letting the monkeys loose, whilst him and Judy are in the attic, he rolls both "1"'s. The sides of the dice which are visible read "3" on one die and "4" on the other. Then when it cuts to a closeup of the boardpiece moving, the "4" now reads a "2", and the dice have also moved position.
Continuity mistake: When the monkeys are destroying the kitchen the kids open the kitchen door and the monkey on top of the refrigerator knocks the cereal box to the floor. A few seconds later the cereal box is back on top of the refrigerator and the monkey knocks it over only spilling the contents.
Continuity mistake: When all the monkeys are in the kitchen, Judy and Peter open the door to peek inside, and a monkey throws a tomato at the kitchen door, making a big stain of tomato juice on the door. When the monkey throws the knives at the door though, the stain has vanished, and the door is clean.
Continuity mistake: When the earthquake begins, the floorboards start to break in two, and Alan starts falling so Sarah holds onto him. Watch the small circular window in the wideshot. (the window that the mosquito flew out of earlier in the film) To the left of the circular window are some empty wooden beams, but no items. When it then cuts to a closeup of the window breaking in two, items have appeared on the beams, and there's a banjo hanging up etc.
Continuity mistake: During the scene when Alan is trapped in the quicksand, and the others are giving him items to hold onto, you can see behind him, to the viewers right of the blue chair in the background, a small stack of newspapers. But in later shots, such as after Peter runs out of the attic to go to the shed, and we then see Judy crawl over and grab the wooden music stand, to hit the spiders, the stack of newpapers has vanished, and a few other items change position, like the tennis racket.

Continuity mistake: As Mrs. Thomas is being taken from her car, after being bitten by the mosquito, the men put her on a pedestal and you can see she is wearing long green boots that nearly reach up to her knees. Yet when they are putting her into the ambulance, she has black heeled shoes on.
Continuity mistake: After Sarah and Alan have been embedded into the floor by the quicksand, she rolls the dice with her teeth onto the board that's been propped up on Alan's face. The next time we see the board, when Peter's fighting with the spiders, the board's completely flat on the floor, when Alan's head should be propping it up. There's no angle between the main board and the two halves that fold out, but they are bent downward in the previous shot. Also, after Alan moves the board, at first it's relatively perpendicular to his face. Then, a few shots later when the spiders are retreating because of the impending earthquake, the board's rotated 45 degrees and moved farther away. It wasn't moved by rumblings from the earthquake- this is before the ground actually begins to shake.

Continuity mistake: After the stampede, Alan runs off, then so do Sarah and Peter, and then the phone rings, so Judy answers it. Down the hallway you can see a chandelier, barely swinging. Yet when it cuts to Judy answering the phone, the chandelier is swinging much more violently.
Continuity mistake: While Alan is handcuffing Carl to the police car, the sky is clear and the sun is shining from the left (driver's) side of the car (indicated by strong shadows). As Alan is tossing the cuff keys away, the camera cuts to a view of the back of the police car which was shot on an overcast day, with the shadows very muted, and the sun coming from the car's right side. The view cuts again as Alan turns to run back to the police car, and we're back in bright sunlight from the left side. A couple shots later, as the car is reversing into the quick U-turn, the sun is shining from the car's right side again, this time with strong shadows.
Continuity mistake: When Alan explains who he is to Sarah, she peers out through a door that's only open a crack. But when the shot cuts to Alan, his entire head and practically both his shoulders are visible through the door. When it switches back to Sarah, Alan appears to be at least two feet away (since he's totally out of the shot) and the door is still open the crack of a few inches.
Continuity mistake: When Judy is fighting off the spiders, the floor breaks and a purple plant comes out of the floor and shoots her in the neck. You can see the barbs, but in the next shot when her brother starts running toward her, they magically disappear, and in the next shot they appear again.
Continuity mistake: In the scene in which an ambulance wrecks the back of Judy and Peter's realtor, the license plate on the front of their car reads DBA-454. However, in the scene where Carl finds his car wrecked into a tree, when he backs out, his license plate also reads DBA-454.

Continuity mistake: When Van Pelt shoots the tire shelf in the store, the attached red wood triangle support is actually different between shots - note paint and dings. Furthermore, dirt marks on the tires appear, and two of the slotted heads of the screws, that are screwed into the anchor eye plate, are turned facing opposite directions (before it breaks).
