Corrected entry: During the scene where Carl and Russell start to walk the house towards Paradise Falls, Carl looks up to the house and says "Don't you worry, Ellie, we'll get our house over there." The next shot shows the picture of Ellie, and through the window you can see Carl and Russell towing the house from further away. You can hear Russell say, "This is fun already." which transitions into a different shot of them. In this shot, Carl and Russell are towing the house from almost directly underneath the house, instead of more out in front of it.zmbabich
Corrected entry: In the shot where young Carl smashes at the tree and starts to run again, his shadow is at his right. After he hears a sound from the nearby house, he turns to his right and listens to the sound. The shadow has moved its direction from front to back, which is not possible.waseemisitu
Corrected entry: When the house first lands and slides to the canyon's edge, we are shown a sweeping vista of the entire ground all the way around to the falls. Clearly it's all flat rock the whole way, no trees or valleys, an easy walk. Yet somehow tall forests, hills and jungles come out of nowhere.
Corrected entry: Even with creative license, it's too much to accept that Carl could have got the house ready to fly within 12 hours. That's one balloon every two seconds including getting every string cut to a different length, somehow stuffing them all down the chimney, installing a steering system, and finishing all the other things he did before take off.
Corrected entry: When Russel is hanging under the house and the airplanes a chasing him, a few tranquilizer darts hit the porch roof and stairs. The darts seem to disappear almost immediately in every following shot, but is most apparent after the house lands atop the zeppelin and a close-up shot confirms it.
Corrected entry: When we first see Ellie in the old house, her eyes are blue. Not as dark blue as Carl's but still blue from all angles and light sources. Subsequently her eyes are deep green.
Corrected entry: When Carl and Russel are having dinner with Muntz on the blimp, it's dark outside and in fact Carl says it's been a wonderful evening. They escape from the blimp and it's dark out, not caused by trees blocking the sun because we've seen the house floating outside the blimp also in darkness. However during the escape a couple of minutes later it's midday with blue skies and sunshine. Muntz's dogs fall into the river. Then two minutes after that it's night time again and Muntz is using the blimp's searchlights to capture Kevin.
Corrected entry: When Mr. Erikson steers the house, we see a small needle compass. Being the needle type, it should have East on the left and West on the right. Facing North and turning right will get you East, but the needle will turn to your left following where North is.
Corrected entry: In the beginning sequences of Up, young Carl is reading in bed up in the attic bedroom by flashlight after he had his accident. He's sitting up in bed with the flashlight pointed at the book. Yet his face and the pillow are lit up as if there's another light pointing toward his face from under the covers. And the light is so strong that it casts a bright glow out the window in the first exterior shot, but a later shot shows it's dark in the room next to the window. And how does young Ellie send a balloon up the side of the house and teach it to make a 90 degree turn into the bedroom window? Or if she's already up there, how did she know that it's Carl's window, and how did she climb up without making any noise, finding footholds where there are none shown? Finally, when she leaves, she jumps out the window and lands on something solid about 2 feet below the windowsill (her head is still visible). Realistically she would have fallen to her death from that height.
Corrected entry: Why use a hammer to smash all those large glass coin-jars? Carl's risking their skins and eyes from flying shards, and then further injuries while picking up the money that ends up full of sharp glass pieces. He should have just turned the jars upside down. Also, it's strange they expect to pay for major damage to the house (tree crushing the roof) using a few dollars in coins. They must have had insurance - so the glass smashing was just creative license.
Corrected entry: In the scene were Carl and Ellie paint the mailbox it can be seen that Carl's hand spoils the paint with his hands paint making a mark on the mailbox to which Ellie reciprocates and make a mark of her hand. In the later scenes its found that mark made by Ellie is rotated clockwise.waseemisitu
Corrected entry: The tree at the top of the hill that we see twice in the Fredricksons' lifetime montage does not change size or shape, despite the passage of at least four decades. By the time Ellie is old and collapses on her way up the hill, the tree should have grown significantly but it looks the same then as it did at the beginning of their life together.MovieFan612
Corrected entry: After Russel reads the page ripped from the library book (the one showing where Carl and Ellie were going to live), Carl grabs it and puts it into his coat pocket. Later, after the house settles down, Carl withdraws it from behind him. He wasn't wearing his coat at that time, so how did the paper jump between those two places?

Corrected entry: After the house starts floating and reaches a good height, Mr.Carl Fredricksen sits on his chair. At that time he places his walking stick to his left hand and in the next-to-next shot, you can hear Russell knocking from outside the house. When he (Russell) knocks the second time, Mr. Carl Fredricksen goes and opens the door: that time you can find the stick in his right hand. It is also noticed in the previous shot that when he peeps through the door's hole, the right hand is animated as if it has the walking stick in hand.waseemisitu
Corrected entry: When Carl and Russell first arrive on the plateau they both fall out of the house and barely save it from the edge of the cliff. When they make the decision to walk the house over to Paradise Falls, suddenly Carl has his walker, with no way to have gotten into the house, suspended dozens of feet in the air, to retrieve it.MovieFan612
Corrected entry: Reviews of "Up" state that Carl Frederickson attached 20,622 helium-filled balloon to his house. When the floating house is over South America, he cuts only a dozen balloons loose and, amazingly, the house begins to descend.
Corrected entry: The first time Kevin chokes on Carl's cane, he spits it out and it is wet and slobbery. A few camera shots later, Carl picks it up and it is perfectly dry.
Corrected entry: When Carl's house is floating through the air, suspended by thousands of helium balloons, he is able to control its direction by means of ropes attached to the weather vane. The movement of a tiny weather vane would have absolutely no effect on the direction of a two-story floating house.
Corrected entry: When we are first introduced to Dug, he says "Squirrel!" and looks away. Squirrels aren't native to South America.
Corrected entry: Carl Frederickson is 78. "Up" opens with a scene of him as a child, watching a movie newsreel about an explorer named Charles Muntz. Carl arrives in Venezuela to find Muntz still alive and trying to find an elusive large bird. After 70 years, Muntz would now be between 90 and 100 years old but is still agile enough to control a pack of dogs, go bird-hunting, wield a sword, and climb a long ladder on the outside of a dirigible.
