Continuity mistake: While Sweeney is upstairs with Pirelli, Mrs. Lovett gives Toby a meatpie downstairs. On a closeup, half the pie is gone, but when the shot widens right after, only a couple nibbles are gone from the cake.

Continuity mistake: The first time Judge Turpin is in Todd's chair, the shaving cream changes during this scene. When Todd lathers him up, covering Turpin's entire lower face with shaving cream, including covering the lips with a large blob of foam, but in Judge Turpin's next closeup, however, not only is the blob gone, but there is a streak at the corner of his mouth where it looks like someone wiped it away.

Continuity mistake: When Sweeney kills Turpin, his forehead is covered in blood. Half a second later there's just a tiny spot.

Continuity mistake: During the "Worst pies in London" song, Mrs. Lovett drips the pie filling into the crust, and it fills the crust up to a bit over the top. In another shot, she rolls on the pie top, but the filling is much less than before, not even to the top of the crust.

Trivia: Anthony Stewart Head (of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" fame) makes a cameo as the man who congratulates Sweeney after his competition against Signor Pirelli. Head originally had a larger role, but his scenes were eventually cut out. (00:38:25)
