Continuity mistake: When Ron throws the burrito at the biker, you can see from the shot in the car that it falls to the ground. After it falls, the biker swivels for a while, and then slides down the street, however, in the shot of him once he stopped, the burrito was in front of him. (00:48:45)
Continuity mistake: After Ron throws the burrito at the biker the exterior shot of the car shows he is in the middle of the three lanes. When it cuts to his reaction shot you can see he is now in the left lane. After showing the biker in agony we see Ron getting out of his car in the middle lane. (00:45:20)Lummie
Continuity mistake: Right after Ron throws Veronica over the desk after she makes fun of his hair, she jumps on his back, and pins him to the floor. In the first shot of the floor, a purse is seen on Ron's right, but the in the next shot of the floor (where she picks up the mace) the purse is on his left. (01:08:40)
Continuity mistake: Before the big brawl between the rival news crews there are a number of shots where the sun is nearly setting and a second or so later will be right back up. The most notable one is just after Ben Stiller's Spanish language crew arrive there is an aerial shot with the sun very bright. In the next shot of Tim Robbins the shadow has become much more noticeable. (00:59:35)Lummie
Continuity mistake: In the scene when there is a question mark written on the teleprompter and Ron says, "I'm Ron Burgundy?" you see a shot of the teleprompter and the question mark is visible. However, what's written on the teleprompter and what Ron says before this are two different things. Ron says something about the panda, but the teleprompter says something about a blind man and his pet falcon.
Continuity mistake: Early in the movie, as Ron Burgundy is talking with his dog at his apartment, pay close attention to the suit jacket on the back of the chair. As the camera shifts between views of the dog and Ron, the coat moves around. In the final shot, when the dog jumps off the back of the chair, the coat is in yet a third position. (00:11:05)
Revealing mistake: In the shot of the bears returning to the cave, one can see a thin piece of string/fishing line tied to a rock on the left side of the screen and stretched across to the other side.
Continuity mistake: After the biker gets the burrito thrown at him and falls to the ground, there is a shot of him from behind where you can see that he undid his helmet buckle. But in the next shot of him getting up, he undoes the buckle again. (00:48:55)
