New this month Continuity mistake: When Billy finally finds his mom and talks to her in front of her apartment, the door behind her changes from (almost) fully closed to much more open, to an intermediate state, and fully closed again at the end. (01:25:30 - 01:28:00)

Factual error: Shazam catches the bus with his hands, but it lands on his hands and face by the windshield. This puts the entire weight of the bus being supported by just the front windshield held by Shazam's hands, plus the momentum of it falling from the bridge hitting him. No way the glass could support all that and not break. Especially since it already cracked from just a guy falling on it.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning after the car skids on the road and stops on the left side there are trees and snow but not the road, however the truck hits them on that side.

Other mistake: Towards the end of the film when they're at the fair, Mary refers to the Sins as "sins", but there is no way she would know that they are sins.

Suggested correction: If you think about it, Billy shouldn't have known either. However he does posses knowledge of these after he transforms and receives the powers. It is evident that when the other children held the staff and said Shazam to get the powers as well, that it also came with some, at least limited, knowledge of these things.

Agreed, except the scene I'm referring to takes place before the rest of the family get powers.

Continuity mistake: In school, Billy nags about being hugged by the little girl. She says 'sorry' and a girl with a pink backpack walks by. Then she vanishes and a shot later she reappears and walks by again.
