Continuity mistake: The jacket that Violet wears has a zip. However, this zip disappears without trace once she is a blueberry, and remains missing for the rest of her existance as a blueberry. Violet's body was done in CG animation, so it could not be that Violet had to change into a different costume. There was no reason why the zip couldn't remain, it just seems like the CG makers got tired of it being there.
Factual error: In the scene in the glass elevator, when Mike Teavee wants to push a button, he presses the TV Room button. The elevator stops going down and immediately moves horizontally. The characters within the elevator are thrown against the wall from the sudden change. However, they are thrown against the wall that is in the direction the elevator is now moving, instead of the opposite wall as they should have been. (01:20:15)

Grandpa Joe: No, sir.
Willy Wonka: Then wonderful, welcome back.
