Continuity mistake: When Mrs. Lovett has given Sweeney a glass of gin (when they are deciding what to do with the bodies), he takes a large swig and another smaller one and the gin is nearly gone. When it cuts away to Mrs. Lovett and back to Sweeney, the glass is full again and there was no sound of another glass being poured.

Continuity mistake: Nearing the end of the song "Pretty Women," Sweeney is bringing his razor closer and closer to the Judge's neck (right around the line "proof of heaven as you're living"). At one point, he brings the razor right up against to the Judge's neck. In the next shot, the razor is a few inches away from the neck. In the shot following that, the razor is back up against the skin.

Continuity mistake: When Anthony first arrives at Judge Turpin's house, he sits on the bench across the street. This bench is positioned on the sidewalk between the iron gate's two large stone pillars. During this scene, the position of the actual bench changes, moving noticeably closer to either the left or right pillar, depending on the given camera angle.

Continuity mistake: When Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett are dancing in her storefront (after they finalize their plan of what to do with the bodies), Depp is holding a butcher's cleaver in one hand. In the wide shots of them dancing, the cleaver is noticeably lower than in the close ups, where the cleaver appears to be at the level of Mrs. Lovett's shoulder.

Continuity mistake: The first time Judge Turpin is in Todd's chair, the shaving cream changes during this scene. When Todd lathers him up, covering Turpin's entire lower face with shaving cream, including covering the lips with a large blob of foam, but in Judge Turpin's next closeup, however, not only is the blob gone, but there is a streak at the corner of his mouth where it looks like someone wiped it away.

Continuity mistake: While Sweeney sings "I'll Never See Johanna," Ms. Lovett is sitting on the chair with him behind. In the close-ups, they're close together; in the wide angles there's a big space between them.

Continuity mistake: When Sweeney is showing Mrs. Lovett the razors right before they start singing, he pulls one out and opens it out straight. He stands up and the blade is still straight. It cuts to a closer shot, and the razor is at a noticeably different angle, then it goes back out to a full shot and the razor is straight out again.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the "I feel you" scene, Anthony walks with his face covered in blood. The hair around his forehead covers at first, and suddenly it doesn't.

Continuity mistake: During the "Worst pies in London" song, Mrs. Lovett drips the pie filling into the crust, and it fills the crust up to a bit over the top. In another shot, she rolls on the pie top, but the filling is much less than before, not even to the top of the crust.

Continuity mistake: Just after Lovett finishes singing "Wait", Anthony comes running up the stairs and Sweeney hides behind the door holding the razor in his right hand. Anthony turns to Sweeney to speak, and Sweeney places his right hand on Anthony's back and guides him toward the window. You get a glimpse of the closed razor. The camera instantly changes to looking at Anthony's back,and Sweeney's hand is empty and fingers are spread out. When the camera angle changes again and Sweeney sits Anthony down, you get a quick glimpse of the razor in Sweeney's right hand.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the song 'a little priest' Mrs. Lovette is holding the curtain and opens it. When the camera switches, the curtain is fully closed and she's just holding a little bit of the curtain.

Mistakes

Based on the location of the barber's chair with the picture window in Todd's barber shop and the layout of the exterior of the building, there is no possible way that the chute behind the chair would be able to dump the bodies directly into the basement without going through the center of Ms. Lovett's shop.

Trivia

During its first month of production in London, Johnny Depp had to take a ten-day leave of absence when his daughter, Lily-Rose, was rushed to a hospital due to a severe illness (which was never disclosed by the media). To accommodate his absence, director Tim Burton filmed scenes that didn't feature Depp's character.
