Continuity mistake: During the van chase sequence, the van door is open for the first few minutes. Then the van makes a sharp right turn and immediately it cuts to the door which is now closed. In the immediately following shot, it's back open yet again.

Continuity mistake: When Ted is using the kite to steer the balloons, he is holding the string in his hand. When George's balloons pop, Ted catches George, and both of Ted's hands are seen to remain empty for at least 15 seconds, no kite or string is seen at all. Then it immediately cuts to a wide shot after George climbs onto Ted's back, and Ted is suddenly holding the kite string, and we see him continue to use the kite to steer the balloons. Ted did not have time to tie the kite string anywhere else, as he had it in his hand as he reached for George.

Continuity mistake: The first time Kris Kristofferson is listening to the cockpit recording, Louise interrupts him during the part where the crew is screaming that the crew "is all burned up" and so on. The next time she goes back in time to repeat the action, she interrupts him much earlier in the tape. This can't be, as explained by the Paradox Theory in the movie itself.

Continuity mistake: Just before Frenchie has Franklin thrown from the helicopter, there is a shot of Franklin looking out the helicopter's open door. As they fly by the docks, they are considerably higher than a cruise ship at the dock. This giant ocean liner is about 15 decks (stories) high, but when Franklin jumps to the water, he falls a much shorter distance.

Continuity mistake: When David is in the ship at the NASA hanger, just as Dr. Farraday asks him to get out of the ship, the door closes. From outside the ship, the interior is pitch black, but in the very next shot from inside the ship, it is lit up from the front "viewscreen" and various lights on the wall, which should have been visible as the door closed.

Continuity mistake: As David and the ship are leaving the NASA hanger, the straps that are holding the ship down start to break. From the shot outside the ship, you can plainly see the straps hanging on the front off the ship, but from inside the ship looking out the front "viewscreen" you see a clear picture, with no straps obstructing the view.
