Character mistake: After Gru tucks the girls in for the night, Dr. Nefario tells him that there are 48 hours until the rocket's scheduled launch. The rocket launch, then, should have taken place at night, around the time the girls go to bed, two days later. The rocket, however, launches during daylight hours.Felonia
Factual error: When the moon is regrowing, it destroys the ship (which is pushing it further into the sky), yet the moon is still pushed into the sky anyway, even though there isn't anything to push it. Even if only the cockpit was destroyed and the rocket's engine was still there, it still wouldn't have been strong enough to push the moon into orbit anyway.Casual Person
Continuity mistake: When Gru is explaining his plan to the minions, one of them takes out a torpedo and fires. The torpedo is held by one of the taller minions at first, but after the torpedo has fired and Gru says "Hey, Dave", we can see the torpedo was held by one of the smaller minions.Casual Person
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Gru steals the shrink ray, his minion puts it in a glass thing. The minion doesn't close the glass door on it, but when it shows Gru and his other minion laughing for victory, the glass door is closed. And the minion didn't have enough time to close the glass container thing.josh26220
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Gru goes to get Agnes, Margo, and Edith from Vector from his "lair" (after giving him the moon) he puts his face against the camera and it displays Gru as taking up the full screen. When he then punches the camera it shows only a small portion of the screen is taken up.Chevrolet
Continuity mistake: When Gru gets shot with all those guns at the end of his attempts to get in Vector's house before he first sees the girls, his goggles are at the top of his head. After he gets shot, the dust is not over his eyes, indicating that his goggles were over his eyes, shielding them from the dust.
Factual error: When the little boy drops his ice cream on the ground and Gru makes him a balloon dog, notice that the dog's ears are not connected to each other. This would be impossible to make unless you used two balloons, but it only showed Gru using one.
