Continuity mistake: Just before Flynn cuts off Rapunzel's hair, there is a shot from behind him and he reaches up with his right hand to push her hair behind her ear. His arm is visible up to his forearm and the shackle is nowhere in sight. However, in the next, wide shot, the shackle is suddenly up around his wrist. (01:01:20)virtual-toast
Continuity mistake: After Flynn complains to the Stabbington Brothers about his nose getting messed up on his wanted posters, they are found by the mounted guards. If you look closely at the shot of the guards on the cliff, one of the horses led by Maximus is grey. Even in the shot when they gallop over the hill top in chasing Flynn - who has just abandoned his partners - one of the horses up front next to Maximus is grey. In the next shot when the captain demands his soldiers to retrieve Flynn's satchel for whatever it took, all the horses following Maximus are brown. (01:40:05)
Trivia: All of the creatures in baby Rapunzel's mobile are referenced later in the movie. The blue bird is the first creature she encounters after leaving the tower (it flies around her head when she sings "completely free"). There is also a white horse (Maximus), a chameleon (Pascal), a yellow duck (The Snuggly Duckling), and a cherub (the old man who dresses like an angel in "I've got a Dream").
Question: Since Maximus was the only one who went to gather the pub thugs in order to save Flynn from being hanged, I've got to ask two questions. 1) How were the thugs able to trust him? After all, when Maximus bursts into their pub after one of them helps Rapunzel and Flynn escape into the tunnel, they know he's the Captain's horse who was hunting them down. 2) How was Maximus able to communicate with the thugs so they would know what kind of situation Flynn was in?
