The Nutcracker

Audio problem: The Nutcracker pulls on a string in Marie’s wardrobe and a letter lowers from a sleeve of one of her dresses. Nutcracker grabs it and turns back saying “Hurry! Everyone will be waiting.” The dialog is not at all in sync with his mouth at this part. You hear him speak, and he almost finishes the line before his moves begin to move. Then once the audio stops, you see his mouth continue to move like he still speaks for a bit.

Continuity mistake: When the army of mice marches out of the fireplace, you can see between their legs behind them that the logs that were smoldering and smoking only a moment ago have disappeared. Then a few shots later when the mice are advancing on the toy soldiers, the fireplace is visible behind them and the logs are suddenly there again, and don't appear to be the slightest bit burned.

Continuity mistake: Fritz pulls a toy soldier out of a line of 3 and removes its sword to give Marie. You can see in the far shot that the other two soldiers are still in there in the china cabinet where he pulled the 3rd from, and a toy cannon on the shelf below them. It cuts to a close up of Marie, then back to a far shot, and suddenly the other toy soldiers and cannon are gone, only china being visible.
