Ella Enchanted

Revealing mistake: During the wedding scene, while the narrator is talking, you can see the string that will pull the left table apart. As said in the commentary, the filmmakers weren't going for the idea of people pulling the tables apart, but rather some other force parting them. (01:27:40)

Visible crew/equipment: When Ella is tending Char's wound, they get up, and while Char is putting on his shirt you can see his microphone clipped to the back of his pants.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Slannen is chaining Ella to the tree, a close up of the lock shows that it is positioned over her right hip, but when the camera pulls back, the lock is positioned over her left hip. (01:07:15)
