Continuity mistake: At the first family dinner scene, grandma starts coughing. The camera shows her from the front with a glass of water to drink.

Continuity mistake: When Sherman's new attraction walks into his classroom, you are able to see in the background that the same people walk past the classroom door several times.

Continuity mistake: In this movie, there are two times when Sherman Klump feeds Molly the hamster. They occur during the beginning and the middle of the movie. The first time, Sherman is wearing a brown coat, and you can see it slightly when he gives Molly her food. The second time he feeds her, he is wearing a cream-colored sweater, but as he extends his arm out, his wrist shows that he is still wearing that brown coat. They simply duplicated the first feeding scene instead of filming a second one.

Continuity mistake: When Klump is singing to the microwave dinner, from the shot inside the microwave he's in the process of closing the door and the shot changes to the inside of the kitchen. Klump is now selecting the time and then closes the door.


Continuity mistake: When Klump throws the Snickers wrapper in the trash can and misses, the wrapper lands a few inches in front of the trashcan. When Klump goes to pick it up, its a few feet and to the right of the trashcan.


Continuity mistake: In the first dinner scene when the young boy is coughing at the table his body is obviously moving alot because he's suppossed to be choking. Then when the scene begins to end, the camera shows him from the back and you can still HEAR him coughing, but he's sitting at the table calmly as if nothing is wrong.


Visible crew/equipment: At the party towards the end, Sherman leaves and Carla comes after him. As she runs toward him, the battery pack slides down her leg.
