Land of the Lost

Continuity mistake: When Grumpy jumps the chasm to chase Dr. Marshall, there's a large green bulbous plant that moves from the side Grumpy jumped from to the one he lands on. It wasn't there before.

Continuity mistake: When Rick pushes down his socks to the top of his boots to cross the lava, they are back up to his knees in the next shot.

Continuity mistake: The fossil of the lighter shown at the beginning of the film does not match how the lighter is pushed by the T-Rex into the mud later on as the text is face up. Since the lighter was pushed INTO the mud - the resulting fossil would have been flat with the words reversed on it.

Continuity mistake: During the pool scene there is a faraway shot of the area showing the three moons in the sky. However during the rest of the scene, we see similar angles and shots of the sky and the moons are nowhere to be seen.

Continuity mistake: After Holly takes the photo of Will with the T-Rex approaching behind him, in the next shot the dinosaur is a lot further behind as you see them running away from it.

jerimiah

Continuity mistake: After Holly yells at the T-Rexm after eating Dr. Marshall, the camera shot first shows the T-Rex passing her as she is now past its legs by the tail. When the camera shot changes we now see the T-Rex's legs haven't passed her yet.

Continuity mistake: The sun keeps moving from the left side to the right side of the catapult as Will and Holly are preparing it for Dr. Marshall.

Continuity mistake: When Will is asking Chaka if he is a cop, the quantity of fruit on the right side of the tree to the left of Chaka's head changes between shots.

jerimiah

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Holly removes Chaka's hand from her chest after learning his name, up close it's his left hand and in the next shot she's removing his right hand.

Continuity mistake: When Rick is lying in the back seat of the convertible in the desert, the speaker hanging next to him goes from being flush against the door when viewed from the front shot, to being crooked when viewed from behind.

Continuity mistake: When the mosquito is sucking on Dr. Marshall's neck, it keeps changing positions from higher up on his shoulder to more towards the front between shots. This is clear by watching the legs of the bug going from in front of his shoulder to being over the strap even when his head isn't moving.

Continuity mistake: When the team lands on the pile of bones, there is some sort of yellow stuff holding it together. The pile is also flush up against the sides of the cave. When the Vines grab them and its a far away show, the yellow stuff disappears and is now a loose pile of bones that's no longer flush against the cave sides.

Continuity mistake: When Rick first meets Enik, the Sleestack are shown peering in through the portal. However throughout that entire scene, we see various other angles and the portal is nowhere to be seen.

Continuity mistake: When the dinosaur was climbing the stairs of the Sleestak courtyard passing next to Holly Cantrell, we can see that its position goes about 3 meters back when the angle changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Will Stanton shows Rick "the perfect woman" mug, he's holding it by the handle in his right hand. In the next shot, he's holding it at the bottom in his left hand. (00:10:25)

Continuity mistake: When Will Stanton shows Rick and Holly the model of the Devil's Canyon, Resort & Casino, he points to one of the pyramids on the top of the model. In the next shot, his hand has disappeared. (00:11:05)

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Mashall first sees the 'pole' and reaches for it, it appears to be 6 feet long. It is easily spun around without hitting the ground as he is examining it, unless he is 8 feet tall. Then he gets the idea to 'vault' over the T-Rex and runs toward the dinosaur. As it digs into the split between two rocks and he starts his ascent, we see the vertical 'pole' is suddenly about 10 1/2 feet tall, noting that the bottom of the animal's jaw is at about that level. As he rises, he springs forward and elevates with his feet to 13 feet, with the animal's jaw risen to that level as well. Dr Marshall is certainly not fat, but he is also not physically conditioned to be able to 'vault' 13 feet, and especially not with a 'jungle stick'.

Continuity mistake: When the raptors are attacking the ice cream truck, (specifically when some of them are slamming their bodies into the truck) they are shown with a small crest above their eyes, which are red. A few seconds later, they're shown with yellow eyes, and the crest is gone.

Continuity mistake: The distance of Dr. Marshall and team when being chased by the Allosaur and T-Rex in the desert scene varies from being only a few feet away to instantly being hundreds of feet away.

Continuity mistake: After the T-Rex takes out all the sleestak, we see Holly hand her belt to Will twice - after the second time she runs through the portal. In the next scene inside the portal, she's now wearing the belt again.

Character mistake: In the scene where Rick Marshall is playing the Banjo, he says he has been "doing some thinking with just him and the old four string". His banjo has five strings and you can see the five strings when he lays the banjo down.

Dr. Rick Marshall: If you don't make it, it's your own damn "vault." That's a bitch slap of truth right there.
