10 mistakes - chronological order

(2 votes)

Continuity mistake: The night when the guard is attacked by Nigel, he doesn't wear his wristbands. However after he wakes up, when he is reporting the situation to the cops, he has on a pair of big carnival wristbands. (00:20:10 - 00:23:35)


Factual error: Towards the end when the smugglers are trying to takeoff from the airport with the float coming at them, Marcel (the lead smuggler) tells Tipa (the fat smuggler) to pull up because they're about to hit the float. Tipa quickly pulls back on the flight controls to takeoff. The scene switches to an outside shot of the plane's wing where the "flap" moves to the down position, but pulling back on the controls manipulates the "elevator" (on the tail) which would cause it to pivot upward. The flaps are controlled separately. (01:20:40)


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Linda and Blu are on the computer, when Tulio "communicates" with Blu, the computer is way too much to the right. It reappears when Blu starts squawking.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Tulio visits Linda in Minnesota, there are two blue pens or pencils on the table. When Tulio throws Blu, the two pens or pencils have disappeared.

Continuity mistake: When Blu and Jewel are first taken to the smugglers, Jewel tells Blu to play dead. From the camera angle in the cage, Blu is to the left and Jewel to the right. However, when the sheet is removed, they switched positions.

Audio problem: In the scene where the birds have a party, Pedro and Nico sing "I Wanna Party". If you look at his lips he sings "My life" but he just smiles.


Continuity mistake: Blu dives out of the plane to save Jewel. When he catches her, he has his wings wrapped around her and they are talking face to face. When he starts to fly, however, she is now facing downward (toward the ocean).

Audio problem: When they get to Rio de Janiero, "Let Me Take You To Rio" plays. But when it's like a trio, he's supposed to say gazebo twice. He doesn't. And the subtitling is wrong because it says "gazebo, gazebo".


Continuity mistake: Blu tries to fly when Linda is asleep - he reads books and looks at blue prints to help him. He uses Christmas lights as runway lights. At the end of the table there is only a cord, no lights but as he runs and takes off the Christmas lights appear on the cord.


Jewel: Luiz is a bulldog?
Luiz: You got anything against bulldogs?
Jewel: Only the ones that slobber on me.
Luiz: It's a medical condition!
