Factual error: The rabbits are underneath the landrover, and they get shot out the back whilst holding on to the axle. Land rovers have an enclosed axle with a hub enclosing the diff, so this would not be possible.

Continuity mistake: When Mr McGregor collapses, his hand goes from open to closed, depending on the angle. His position in relation to the carrots keeps changing too. (00:11:40)

Factual error: Thomas McGregor asks at the station in London for a 'round trip' ticket to Windermere. It's called a 'return' in Britain and no British person would ask for anything else.


Other mistake: When we see the 4x4 driving to the hardware store the truck isn't reflected in the shop windows even though it should be.

Other mistake: On the way to the river the rabbits can pull the tail gate up from inside the back of the 4x4 and it closes and stays shut. However in the shop, Tom is shown that a clip on the outside of the 4x4 has to be bolted to keep it shut.

Continuity mistake: When Mr McGregor has died, all the animals run into his garden and Ms. Tiggywiggle is at the very back. When we see the gate being broken down a second later she is at the front.

Continuity mistake: At one point when Tom is chasing Peter and Benjamin for the first time, he hits the ground with a tool, camera turns 90° to the left and now Tom is in front of the camera again. No way for him to cover that distance instantly.

Continuity mistake: When the rabbits are watching Tom clean the greenhouse, Bea mentions McGregor, at which point Cottontail pulls out a blackberry and squashes it. In the next shot the blackberry is gone and Cottontail's paw is completely clean.

Rooster: The sun came up again? I can't believe it! I thought when I closed my eyes last night, that that was it! But we have another day of this.

More quotes from Peter Rabbit

Question: How is it that Thomas can understand what the rabbits are saying as shown in the make-up scene and no other human can?

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: It's not clear if he actually can hear them or not. It's implied in the film that it's possibly stress or a mental break that is causing him to hallucinate their voices, or is suddenly thinking on a brain wave length that can understand them. If it's the former, it's coincidence that he hears similar to what Peter is actually saying. Either case explains why he suddenly can hear them when nobody else can around them despite them talking in front of people.

Answer: The humans can actually understand the rabbits. Because notice during the scene when Peter is about to put the carrot in the Old Mr. McGregor's pants, the rabbits are talking quietly, most likely so Mr. McGregor doesn't hear them. And then there aren't any other scenes where they talk at a normal volume, or talk at all around humans, except for at the end when Peter is apologizing to the young Mr. McGregor.
