Revealing mistake: When RoboCop is getting into his car after remembering about his former life, and breaking out of the police station, look at the bottom of the screen. You can see that Peter Weller is only wearing half of the RoboCop costume, his right leg comes into shot as he gets into the car. (00:46:40)

Audio problem: Quite a few scenes in the film appear to have been dubbed over. Most of them are at the start after Ben and Fred have to keep Johnny 5 indoors. The mouth movements don't seem to match up with what is being said. If you look at the mouth's of the actors, there appears to be quite a few strong swearwords in the film, which were probably removed because it's a kids film.

Visible crew/equipment: At the start of the film, RoboCop is in his police car, and it gets hit with a rocket and it flips over, and then slides to a stop. It is quite obvious that RoboCop is not in the front of the car, and that a silver plate has been placed in the driver's seat to make it look like he is.

Continuity mistake: When RoboCop is at the Nuke hideout, he looks around the various artifacts that the gang have stolen. One of them is the skeleton of Elvis in a glass coffin. When we see the coffin from RoboCop's POV, (he is standing to the right of the coffin), there is a picture of the real Elvis to the left of Elvis's skull. When we cut to a wide shot of the room, RoboCop is still standing to the right of the coffin, but the picture beside Elvis's head has moved to the right hand side of Elvis's skull. A guitar which is sitting beside the coffin is pointing inwards during the Robo POV shots, but in the wide shots, is pointing outwards.

Continuity mistake: Martin goes out to a baseball game with a famous writer that Frasier and Niles admire. While he is out, they read one of his books he accidentally left behind. When the author returns, he ends up holding the pages of the book in his hand, whilst standing in front of the fireplace. In one shot he is holding them in his left hand, but when the view cuts to another angle, he has them in his right hand. This occurs just before he goes outside to throw the pages off the balcony.

Other mistake: Cassandra says that all the canaries will be dead in 1 hour, with the exception of Rimmer, Kryten, Lister, Cat and Kochanski. However, Kill Crazy was still knocked out in the transport vehicle and presumably would have survived too.
Continuity mistake: Lister and Rimmer's bunk room looks exactly the same in the flashback scenes during this series as it does in the present time. In the first series it looked completely different, so surely the look should have changed slightly for the flashback scenes?
Other mistake: The tax letter and Rimmer's mother's letter are both already opened before Lister takes the letters out. As there is no one else aboard Red Dwarf, the letters would not have been checked by anyone so they should still be sealed. Also, not all of the letters are already open, just the two that Rimmer receives.
Other mistake: When Lister reads Rimmer's diary, he reads the first entry, then his aunt's birthday in July and then the entry for Gazpacho Soup Day in November. Each time he looks for the next entry he flicks though the pages, yet every time he reads, it is from the start of the diary. (00:15:25)
