Continuity mistake: When Spencer Tracy backs into the blue hotrod, the cars end up kind of sideways. In the next shot it shows the cars at a 90 degree angle touching. Then in the next shot it shows them sideways again as he pulls away.

Revealing mistake: When Spencer Tracey backs his car into the hotrod at the ice cream stand, you can see the hotrod already has a sizable dent before the car makes contact, probably a result of a previous take.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film when Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn are in their bathroom talking, Spencer is in the process of shaving. At one point, you see his face covered with shaving cream. When it cuts to Katherine and then back to him, the shaving cream is spread differently on his face. When it cuts to her again and back, it is different again.
