Continuity mistake: When Rapunzel wraps her hair around Flynn's hand she does so six to seven times. When the camera pans to the hand, it shows a criss cross pattern. That would require at most, 2 or 3 times, of wrapping the hair around.When the glow of the hair reaches Flynn's hand, the hair is wrapped in a straight formation. Then when the hand is healed Flynn unwraps it, with no more than one to two revolutions of wrapped hair.
Continuity mistake: Just before Flynn cuts off Rapunzel's hair, there is a shot from behind him and he reaches up with his right hand to push her hair behind her ear. His arm is visible up to his forearm and the shackle is nowhere in sight. However, in the next, wide shot, the shackle is suddenly up around his wrist. (01:01:20)
Continuity mistake: After Flynn complains to the Stabbington Brothers about his nose getting messed up on his wanted posters, they are found by the mounted guards. If you look closely at the shot of the guards on the cliff, one of the horses led by Maximus is grey. Even in the shot when they gallop over the hill top in chasing Flynn - who has just abandoned his partners - one of the horses up front next to Maximus is grey. In the next shot when the captain demands his soldiers to retrieve Flynn's satchel for whatever it took, all the horses following Maximus are brown. (01:40:05)
Continuity mistake: As Flynn and Rapunzel cross the bridge to the village, Flynn notices a "Wanted" poster with his picture on it. He takes the poster and crumples it up into a tiny ball, then stuffs it into the mouth of Maximus the horse. When Maximus spits it out and it lands on Flynn's face, the poster is inexplicably smooth and shows no evidence of having been crumpled.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Flynn is dying and cuts Rapunzel's hair off, he falls back against the pole. After Gothel falls out of the tower and turns back to Flynn, he's now completely lying on the floor. It's highly unlikely that he moved, since he's hardly conscious at the time.
Continuity mistake: When Flynn is escaping from the guards after the thugs rescue him and he runs out to the courtyard, he stops pretty far from the cart that eventually catapults him out of the castle. The thug that places him on the cart only moved him over about a person's width, not nearly the distance needed to move him onto the cart.
Other mistake: Rapunzel's hair is somehow attached to the top of a tree and she is suspended off the ground, swinging in circles around the tree. However, her position relative to the ground does not change. As she repeatedly swings around the tree, she should be getting further above the ground. Also, her hair inexplicably never gets caught or snagged in the branches of the tree.
Continuity mistake: In the reprise of Mother Knows best; Mother Gothel gives Rapunzel Flynn's satchel containing the crown in order to try and prove his disloyalty. Rapunzel then gives this to him on the boat later. However, no-one carries the satchel from the campsite to the boat! Rapunzel and Flynn are not carrying it, and Maximus does not have any saddle bags. How does it get from A to B?
Factual error: Sailing ships in harbor always have their sails furled and stowed, not set. All the ships in the city's harbor have their sails set. Would never happen.
Continuity mistake: When Flynn is being rescued by the "ruffians", after the second guard is taken, the head guard turns around and Flynn is still handcuffed. Then the head guard is knocked out, and immediately following the other guards break through the rear door and Flynn takes off running. His handcuffs are mysteriously gone. No one removes them.
