Jumanji

Factual error: Carl tells Alan that his police cruiser is brand new, but the Chevrolet Caprice he is driving is a 1991 or 1992 model as it has "skirted" rear wheel wells.

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. (01:30:30)

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. (00:38:50 - 00:52:35)

Revealing mistake: When the monkeys are in the garden, running away, just after Judy says "Beware", they cast no shadow either on the paved entrance, nor on the grass, plus they move as if in stop-motion, instead of the perfect movement they did before.

Continuity mistake: When the spiders show up, Alan's hair is covering his right temple or not, depending on the angle. This changes back and forth.

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).

[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.

Trivia: The music playing when Van Pelt enters the store to buy a new rifle and ammo is no less than the Mexican national anthem, and it was- by the way- eliminated from the film soundtrack when this movie played in Mexico. (01:00:25)
