The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D

Continuity mistake: In the opening shot at the breakfast table, there is a large cereal box and a carton of milk on the right side of the table, in front of two salt-n-pepper shakers. But during the scene it continues to swap to an angle behind the two shakers - but now the cereal box and milk carton have vanished, so as not to block the view for this angled shot. (00:12:30)

Continuity mistake: When Sharkboy and Lavagirl burst into the classroom looking for Max, there is writing on the blackboard ("Science, Chapter Two") written in yellow chalk. Strangely, later in the scene the writing is now written in white chalk, and the handwriting of the text is noticeably different. Then, later it goes back to yellow! (00:16:45 - 00:17:40)

Revealing mistake: Near the end, Max's father is holding onto a tree to avoid being blown away by the tornado. However, the next time you see him he starts to talk to Max with both of his hands off the tree and he isn't being affected by the incredibly strong wind at all.

Continuity mistake: At the end, where Marissa has just defeated Mr. Electric, Linus runs out of the room and into the snow. It's not the actor but instead a double running out of the room. In the next shot, he pushes past Max to get out of the classroom again.

More trivia for The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D

Question: If Lavagirl can control what she wants to burn how come she burns the diary (is it because she was too excited)?

Answer: Lava Girl is always hot to the touch. She can control when she throws magma, but the only way she can have any control over her actual body temperature is to control her emotions, which would naturally be difficult for someone her age. Even then, at her coolest possible temperature, her body temperature would still be very high. There are continuity issues with her body temperature throughout the film, ie, being able to sit on ice for extended periods of time without melting it, but the idea is she always has a very high body temperature.
