Jumanji

Revealing mistake: When Alan's face is stuck into the floorboards, after they had turned to quicksand, the boards assumingly go back to being hard and wooden, yet in shots of Alan talking you can see the boards bounce/wobble slightly, showing they are rubber. (01:21:45 - 01:22:45)

Continuity mistake: After Judy is shot by the poison flower, Peter cradles her in his arms. That is in close-up. When it goes to wide shot, he isn't cradling her anymore.

Continuity mistake: After Alan swings on the rope and grabs the game he opens it and suddenly hears the hunter say "Don't move." During those shots the position of the pieces on the board are not continuous.

Continuity mistake: When the monkeys go into the police car, they take the shotgun and fire it through the roof destroying the roof lights, but in all the later shots of the car the lights are still destroyed, but the roof shows no damage.

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)

Obvious

Continuity mistake: When Peter sets the Jumanji game on the table for the first time, it is placed sideways in the wide shots, or parallel to the table in the close-ups.

Visible crew/equipment: When the monkeys enter the cop's car there's a huge lighting screen with a bunch of tubes reflected on the left side of the car.

Sacha Premium member

Continuity mistake: When the cop is about to run Alan over with the car, first Alan is standing sideways on the road, then there's a close-up of him turned 90ยบ looking straight at the cop, then a third angle shows him turning around from the initial sideways position.

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 Alan is about to cry "stampede!" several books fall on the floor. After he shouts it, there's a wide angle and the books are gone.

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 cop is about to encounter Alan, there are two passers-by behind the car who disappear in the close-up angle.

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.

[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.

Question: When Judy was stung by that plant and she collapsed, I never really understood what happened. She collapsed but was she poisoned and killed or just paralyzed? Anybody have the faintest idea? That's the only bit I never understood. I thought she was shot by poisonous darts...

Hamster Premium member

Answer: Since the barb was poisonous, she was dying. This is seen when she begins looking pale and a few seconds later she isn't moving. Finishing the game was the only way to save her life.

Chosen answer: She was just temporarily immobilized by the venom - it wears off after a few minutes.

The Doctor

No, it doesn't. Alan said the purple plants shoot poisonous barbs. After being hit, by them, Judy was slowly being poisoned to death.
