Honey I Shrunk The Kids

Revealing mistake: When Nick is being sucked out of the hole/cave, you can see the wires visible from his waist. (01:20:35)

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Amy lets Wayne know that breakfast is ready, she presses a button labeled breakfast. There are other items on the box, such as lunch, dinner, and phone. When they show the board flashing the word breakfast, you can see that the word breakfast is the only word the board can display between flashes.

Continuity mistake: When Amy is in the kitchen cleaning, she starts mopping the floor, then dancing with the mop held upside down. The mop starts out wet, but when she's dancing it's dry (either that or she would be getting dirty mop water in her face while the mop is being flung around).


Audio problem: When Russ jumps from out behind the bush and says, "I say that ant is ours", his mouth doesn't move.

Factual error: After their parents give up looking for the kids, there's a "time passing" scene showing the lit attic window from the outside of the house, in which the night grows lighter until it's morning of the next day. But the moon in the picture doesn't move. How can the moon stand still if time is passing?

Continuity mistake: When Amy walks toward Ron to offer him a truce, her hands are clean, but she somehow transfers mud to his hands when they shake.

Factual error: Nick says earthworms are dormant this time of year. In the summer? No way. Basic common sense says otherwise.

Other mistake: When Amy hits the button to tell her dad that breakfast is ready, he tries to type "I'll be down in five minutes." However, the message on the strip of paper says "I'll be down in five mimmicks." Amy says, "Typing with his gloves on again." Even if someone was typing with their gloves on, the blatant misspelling would not happen.

Continuity mistake: When the four kids run and hide from the ant after he takes over their cookie, Amy has no cream filling on her mouth, but when she tells Ron to be quiet, there is cream on her bottom lip.
