Continuity mistake: When they are auditioning for the team, they stamp the fat kid's file "approved" under his photo parallel to the bottom edge. The camera cuts away and back to show the stamp at an angle with part of it on the photo itself. (00:13:40)

Deliberate mistake: When Zoom is moving the documents from the desk to the floor for Marsha to pick up, she quite blatantly catches him two or three times, but continues on with her business.

Audio problem: When Dr. Grant is explaining the plan to Larraby, when Larraby says "Is that our only option?", his mouth doesn't move.

Plot hole: When we see the Zenith Team playing softball, it's a scene taken from later in the movie. For one thing, Mr. Pibb is there, even though we don't meet him until the next scene. Second, they're in the room with the UFO, but we don't see that until later. Finally, Zoom's outfit is different than the last scene, but in the next scene he's wearing the same outfit.

Revealing mistake: Anytime we see the back of someone's head while they are talking, their mouths aren't moving.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Princess and Houdini are running up the Zoom, Zoom is eating oatmeal. At one point, oatmeal falls on his chin, then the camera goes to Princess and she says, "You don't look like a superhero." Then the camera goes back to Zoom, the oatmeal's gone, and he reaches for a napkin. If he had wiped it off while she was talking, Zoom would have the napkin in his hand still.

Cindy Collins: You care about us, right?
Jack Shepard: I brought cake.

More quotes from Zoom

Question: At the end, during Cindy's play, there's a woman in a cream color coat in the audience that the camera and lighting seem to focus on. She's sitting cross legged and not reacting like the other extras. She seems totally out of place to be just an extra. At first I thought she was suppose to be someone and was going to do something (like reveal her superpowers or something). Is she suppose to be a character, like Ace? Did we see her earlier in the film? Is there a deleted scene with her? Or is it truly just a random extra?

Answer: She could be Cindy's Mom, who is video taping her daughter and not surprised by her powers. If not, she probably a government agent sent to keep tabs on her.

It's not Cindy's mom. The woman is after the boy is pulled up. Later Cindy's mom says "that's my princess" and it's a different lady (though a very similar outfit up top). I tried to see if there were other "out of place" people watching the other kids to see if government agents were watching them, but didn't see anyone.
