Revealing mistake: When Alex says they should go find the penguins, he says "To home" and Marty, Melman, Gloria and Julien place their hands on top of his hand. In the next shot it shows all of them together. But due to the position of Julien and his arm length, it would have been impossible for Julien to have his hand fully placed on Alex's hand.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where "More Than Words/Heaven" is sung, there is a montage of shots of Drew playing guitar on stage and Sherrie singing outside. One of the shots of Drew has been horizontally flipped - in it he's now playing guitar left-handed and his "The Bourbon Room" T-shirt has the logo back-to-front.DVD Smith
Revealing mistake: When Scrat removes the giant acorn in Scratlantis the city is immediately flooded. Everyone in the background is blown away by the sudden rush of water. However, both Scrat in the background and Scrat's host (slightly off-camera) in the foreground don't move and don't seem to be affected by extremely strong flow. (01:18:50)
Revealing mistake: In the laboratory, when Dex tells the doctor he needs him to analyse what he borrowed from Lady X, it is apparent that when Dex first shows it the doctor, there is nothing in his hand. He just appears to be pretending to hold something. It is not until two shots later, that the object he shows to the doctor is visibly in his hand. (00:37:25)Casual Person
Revealing mistake: In the scene when Dodge is knocking at the second house to see if Olivia is home, check out the top left corner of the screen during the shot of Penny sitting in the car - a bird flies by inside the car. The only reasonable explanation is that the visual effects team not only made the bird graphic visible through the window but also in front of the rest of the car. They might have forgotten to bring the car layer in front of the bird layer, causing a bird to be seen flying over top of the entire image. (01:14:00)
Revealing mistake: When Sam first sets off in the canoe, it is obviously being towed because it leaves a moderate wake even though he is barely paddling.
Revealing mistake: When Ray reminisces about having fought the Germans in WW2, a flashback is shown with him fighting in a bunker. He is carrying a No.4 Lee-Enfield rifle which requires the bolt to be worked after every shot to reload. However, he is shown firing two shots in rapid succession without moving his hands at all, revealing the shots to just be flashes added after filming.Andrew Upton
