Monsters vs Aliens

Continuity mistake: It's shown in many scenes that the robot Gallaxar sends isn't particularly quick moving when it walks. But when it's chasing Ginormica around the city, even though Ginormica is sprinting away, it can catch her far more quickly than its speed would allow. It doesn't suddenly speed up - in the shots when the camera focuses on the robot again, you can still see it moving slowly.

Continuity mistake: When Susan comes back to save her friends, she passes through the holes she made in the steel doors before. Ginormica is supposed to be 50 feet tall, but when Susan passes through the holes in the UFO, her size is 1/3 of the holes she made as a giant.

Factual error: Gallaxhar scans the galaxy to find the missing quantonium. The scanner zooms in on earth, showing it to be very close to the center of the galaxy. Earth is actually nowhere near the center of the galaxy; it's located much closer to the outer edge.

Factual error: The TV station in Modesto, CA had call letters starting with a W. All broadcaster call letters west of the Mississippi start with a K.

Continuity mistake: We see many people running from the alien robot on the bridge. We then see Ginormica, and behind her the people have disappeared. (00:42:45)

Low Cow

Revealing mistake: Susan appears to pass right through the glass window after knocking down Gallaxhar.

Continuity mistake: When the President is climbing the stairs to make first contact with the robot, the man who gives him the cup of water is nowhere to be seen. This is especially evident from the view of the helicopter pilot who says "we got a bead, Papa Bear." (01:00:00)

Plot hole: When the asteroid first approaches Earth it does so very quickly, but then it takes hours to finally enter the atmosphere and land on Susan.

Other mistake: When Derek does his final news report the map in the background says both 32 and 99° in Nevada.
