El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

Continuity mistake: Jesse Plemons gained a considerable amount of weight since "Breaking Bad" ended. As such, Todd Alquist is noticeably husky in his flashback appearances in this movie, even though in the original timeframe, he was more slender.

Continuity mistake: In S5:E14 of BB, it shows that Jesse is chained to the roof to teach Todd how to cook. Like if the setup was already there on the same day they kidnapped him. But in El Camino, they show the scene where the Nazis are planning out of the setup for Jesse to cook in and the roof setup is not there yet.

Suggested correction: Kenny mentions that Jesse "tried to rabbit on us once already", so this is after he escaped. He says "I'm thinking he's gonna figure out a way to break this thing." They're not having Neil build the structure in this scene, they're having him change and/or reinforce it.

Question: In Jesse's parents house he height chart is scrawled on the door frame. Did they move back into the family home?

Answer: Unless I'm forgetting the show mentioning them moving, I believe the Pinkmans stayed in the same house. The house Jesse lived in and later bought under their noses after their expensive remodel was Jesse's aunt's house.
