Continuity mistake: After failing to catch Sassy, who went down the waterfall, Shadow and Chance are walking by the river bank. In one shot, Shadow's fur is wet, then dry, then wet again.
Homeward Bound (1993)
Directed by: Duwayne Dunham
Starring: Michael J. Fox, Sally Field, Anne Christianson, Don Alder, Ed Bernard, Kevin Chevalia
Continuity mistake: Following Chance's run-in with the porcupine: Right after Animal Control pulled the needles out of his face/snout, he was visibly wounded, with giant red makings which appear on the right side of his face. Then, while the 3 pets are looking down at their hometown which they just realised is only a little distance from where they are (Sassy had just pointed this out to the dogs), those red wounds are now on the left side of Chance's face. Then, by the end of movie the same markings mysteriously disappear and are completely gone in the final scene.
Revealing mistake: Near the start of the journey, there is a shot of Chance and Shadow running through a creek. This is followed by a shot of Shadow coming toward the camera. As she turns off to the left screen, something on the bottom moves with her. It is likely a guide for the cat to follow.
Trivia: When Chance jumps out of the car, he bangs the youngest child's head on the door hard enough to make the camera pan off him pretty fast.
Hope Burnford: Hungry?
Hope Burnford: But it's shrimp. You like shrimp.
Sassy: Yeah, well, I've still got those four pesky ounces still hanging on from last Christmas.
Sassy: Oh, no. I'm with strangers.
Chance: Cats are smarter than dogs, huh? Right. She doesn't even know the meaning of the word, "stay."
