The Little Mermaid

Stupidity: Apparently, Ariel forgets how to write when she gets human legs. Ariel was able to sign a scroll underwater, but she apparently cannot do so to inform prince Eric of her identity.

Suggested correction: We see Ariel sign in English, but most likely they have an entirely different alphabet and language from our own.

Continuity mistake: When King Triton destroys the stone statue of Prince Eric, you can see that the statue's face explodes and breaks into pieces as well as the rest of the body. However, at the point a few minutes later when Ariel decides to meet the sea witch Ursula, she caresses the statue's face as a whole again. (00:35:30)
