Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning when Chuckie is turning on all the toys in the office, he flies a helicopter and the string is so visible its funny. The helicopter then crashes and you can still see it. In the next shot the man looks at it and there is no string. (00:11:15)

Continuity mistake: When the helicopter has crashed you see it lying close to the wall. Later it has moved out further from the wall. (00:11:25 - 00:12:40)

In the shots of the package rolling down the stairs, the boy with whom Tyler collided should also be seen going down the stairs. Instead he is nowhere to be seen. (00:24:15)

Continuity mistake: When Chucky and Andy are fighting in Andy's room Chucky has a pocket knife. When Andy kicks Chucky he drops the knife and it goes under the bed. Then if you look closely when the guy walks into the room you can see that the knife moved from under the bed to beside the chest in his room. (00:37:25)

Continuity mistake: When Andy falls to the floor with his tray you can see a lot of food fall on the floor. When it cuts to a wide shot all the food is gone from the floor. Also the tray has moved closer to Andy. (00:51:50)

Continuity mistake: When Chucky is thrown down the skull mountain in the horror house, he falls face down towards the fan. But when he lands in it, he's not only face up, but the amount of damage to his face that he received earlier on has changed as well. (01:21:05)

Factual error: When the school starts the war games and Chucky switches the paint rounds for live ammo and a few people get shot, this is impossible because those types of guns have been modified so they can't fire live rounds. All Chucky would have done is taken away their ability to fire anything.

Continuity mistake: When Chucky is in the barber's chair,in the close up, the hair on his forehead changes between shots. There is a wisp of hair in several shots and it is combed back in another.

Plot hole: No amusement park ride company would ever produce a prop scythe that was as sharp as depicted in the movie.

Other mistake: During the breakfast scene, Sgt. Botnick tells Andy he needs a trim on Wednesday, but he had just given him a haircut the previous day.

Other mistake: When Charles is thrown away and gets dumped in the back of the garbage truck, he screams for the garbage man who hears him and jumps in. There's no way he could have heard Charles screaming or the cadets hear the garbage man screaming from the marching field. Front loaders are loud and nearly impossible to hear screaming even near the truck.

Character mistake: When Chucky is looking up the information about Andy on the computer, the word juvenile is misspelled "juvinile."

Other mistake: Chucky cuts Andy's Achilles tendon from under his bed. Throughout the rest of the movie, Andy should have a limp from such a severe injury. However, he has no trouble walking or running in subsequent scenes, nor does he show any signs of injury.

Plot hole: At some point during the war games exercise, headquarters would have eventually discovered Sgt. Botnick's body, and then they would have immediately stopped the exercise.

Chucky: Don't fuck with the Chuck.

More quotes from Child's Play 3

Trivia: The film was announced, written, shot, edited and released less than nine months after the release of "Child's Play 2." The studio was worried about the series not lasting, and wanted to rush out a third movie as quick as possible to cash in on the success of the original. Series creator and lead writer Don Mancini (who wrote or co-wrote every single film and directed entries 5-7) has said "Child's Play 3" is his least favorite of the series, as he felt it was pushed out too quickly, and he didn't have the time to write a script he found satisfactory.
