Super Grover

Other mistake: In quite a few shots during the film, it is much too obvious that there are no lenses in Harry's glasses, whereas in previous and following shots the glasses have lenses. A couple of instances are: when Harry drinks the Felix Felicis and when Harry kneels beside Dumbledore, at the foot of the Astronomy Tower.

Trivia: The character Steve Zissou, played by Bill Murray, is an homage to Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau, who also wore a red wool cap identical to the caps worn by Zissou and his crew. Additionally, Captain Cousteau's ship was named Calypso, and in the film Zissou's ship is named Belafonte, a send-up because Harry Belafonte, a Jamaican American musician/actor, was referred to as the "King of Calypso."

Continuity mistake: When Marge arrives, as she walks towards Petunia, there are two gold trim bars installed between the carpet edges and kitchen floor - one in the doorway and another between the kitchen counter and wall. Both disappear in the following shots.

Continuity mistake: When Harry goes to the table to clean up Marge's broken glass and when he stands at the counter as Marge blows up, there is a large rug in the kitchen, under the center cart, whose edge reaches the counter stools. When Harry storms downstairs with his trunk, Petunia and Dudley stand at the kitchen doorway and the rug is gone - it would be visible if it was on floor. (Likewise, the rug was gone when Marge and Ripper arrived, but it could be presumed that the rug was laid out before their meal.) (00:03:50 - 00:06:40)
