Madagascar

Factual error: In the sequence where the animals get on the first subway, it says they are on the 59th St subway. But, there is no 59th St subway in NY. The only subway station close to 59 is the 57th St subway.

Suggested correction: While the other correction lists a 59th street, that's in Brooklyn. There is one in Manhattan though, 59th - Columbus Circle, which is also the south-west corner of Central Park.

Suggested correction: There is definitely a 59th street subway station: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/59th_Street_ (BMT_Fourth_Avenue_Line).

Continuity mistake: When Alex's crate gets knocked off the ship, there is water dripping into the crate, yet in the following shots the crate is completely dry.

Suggested correction: Just because it appears dry on the surface doesn't mean there isn't water between the slats of wood making it drip.

Other mistake: When Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman are talking together inside the boxes, Alex has three holes in his box allowing light in for him. Melman, Marty and Gloria have that too, but Gloria's box is lying under Alex's and Marty's, so it can't get as much light - but it does.

Suggested correction: When we see the outsides of the box on the ship we can also see little gaps caused by wood planks nailed to the sides of the box so there should be a little light coming from in between to Gloria's box holes.

In the picture you can see light streaming in from the top despite a box being on top of it. That's the mistake.

Suggested correction: It's not shown anywhere how deep Gloria's box is, so it can easily be deeper than Alex's and Marty's and the holes can be further then their boxes reach.

In the scene after they fall off the boat, we see all 3 dimensions of Gloria's box, and it is indeed the same depth as all the others.

The boxes are all the same size so the mistake is valid.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, when Marty finds the snow-bullet in Alex's mouth, he puts it in the Alex thing collection, but the collection wasn't there before and it disappears after that. (00:01:55)

Question: How did Marty free himself from the animal box after falling into the ocean? This obviously happened before the scene where he was surfing on dolphins, but it is never shown nor mentioned how he managed to get out of this box.

Answer: It is entirely possible his box hit something in the water and broke or was weakened enough for Marty to escape.
