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. (00:57:35)Hamster
Deliberate mistake: When the house is splitting in two, the board game should have fallen long before it actually does. (01:25:25)
Visible crew/equipment: Just before the monsoon, everyone is in the attic and Judy tells Sarah that she needs to roll a 12 to win. When it cuts to Peter, you can see his tail behind him, and the wire attached to the tail is visible, holding it up and swinging it about. (01:15:35)
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. (01:09:30)
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. (00:47:20)
Continuity mistake: When the hunter fires at the cop (with his old gun) he fires once and the cop ducks behind the car. We see three bullet holes in the car when there should only be one. (00:56:15)
Continuity mistake: When the LeBaron gets hit by the ambulance, we see that it comes to a stop about 10-15 feet from the corner. When the paramedics come out to help the woman in the car, it is now right at the corner. (00:38:50)
Visible crew/equipment: When the lion first emerges from the Jumanji, Alan tackles with it and it then jumps at him, and lands on a long carpet, and goes sliding along on the carpet, into a bedroom. The black wire used for pulling the carpet along is visible, yet best seen in slow motion. (00:28:30)Hamster
Other mistake: This is about the collector's edition DVD cover. On the back cover, the blurb says "With the help of young orphans Judy." But the cover doesn't make any mention of her brother. It should say "young orphans Judy and Peter" or "young orphan Judy."
[Alan is explaining to Sarah why Van Pelt is chasing him.]
Sarah: Well, have you ever thought about sitting down and talking about your differences?
Alan: What are you, crazy? The man has a gun.
Sarah: Don't ever call me crazy, Alan. Ever. Because everyone in this town has been calling me crazy ever since I told the cops you were sucked into a board game.
