Character mistake: We see the lead driving on the motorway to get to the cottage. She leaves at junction 6 for Princes Risborough. Which means she is on the M40 that goes to Birmingham. When she arrives the host asks about the drive down and mentions the M4. This is a different road entirely, that goes to Swansea.

Factual error: There are profound problems with the geography of the U.K. In the beginning, Stimpson is at a train station. He wants the Norwich train, but instead gets on a train bound for Plymouth. There is no station where you could get a train to both. Plymouth is in the South West. To get there from London, you go out of Paddington. Norwich is in East Anglia and you get there from Liverpool Street.

Continuity mistake: After Puss breaks out of prison he rides the giant Great Terror goose using coloured bunting as reins to steer and control her. In one medium shot the bunting has disappeared, but it magically reappears in the next close-up of Puss sitting astride the goose's neck.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, Rodrick is driving Greg to school in his van. There is a close-up showing three flyers beautifully arranged on the top of the dashboard as they are driving along, and a soft toy. After Rodrick pulls away, there is no sign of the flyers and soft toy.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Susan's editors come round for supper, Greg and Rodrick have to return home by 9pm. And they do, as there is a lingering close-up of the wall clock in the sitting room showing the time as 20.55, and dialogue centring on this [i.e. the clock has not stopped]. There is then a lot of commotion about whether Susan's column is a wholly accurate depiction of the dynamics of the family that takes a good couple of minutes to play out. The editors make their excuses and leave, and we see the clock again as they are leaving, but in all the time this has taken the clock has not advanced. Then there is a further scene where the boys argue in the front room and after that has played out we see the clock again, and time has continued to stand still.
