The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: After Mikey sets off the falling boulders by pulling the wire, when Brand climbs up to move the rock Stef and Andy are standing about four feet apart, but in close-ups they are shoulder to shoulder, and so it goes over and over again. (00:57:20)

The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: On the beach, when Mikey tells his father, "We had our hand on the future, but we blew itÂ…," in the close-up the brown blanket is only on Mikey's left shoulder, but in the previous and following shots the blanket is snugly around both shoulders. (01:45:25)

The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: When Rosalita (black coat) pours the jewels into Mrs. Walsh's (beige coat) hands in the first close-up, the hand holding the jewels has long nails with colored nail polish. It cuts to a close-up of the Goonies looking down on that hand, and then cuts to a tighter close-up of just the hand holding the jewels, but now there is no nail polish on the thumbnail and the nail is shorter.

The Goonies mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When Brand finds the skeleton key in the dirt, he holds it up as Mouth wipes the dirt off the three holes. It's actually quite funny seeing what is supposed to be Mouth's hands in the close-up, with its female manicured fingernails. (00:55:40)

The Goonies mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Andy begins to lose it in the tunnel, Brand holds one lit lantern at the head of the line and Mouth holds another lit lantern at the back of the line (Mikey holds an unlit lantern). Next shot the lit lanterns have switched, just as they reach Chester Copperpot and Andy screams. Then in the next wideshot before it pans to the skeleton, the lantern Brand holds up switches yet again. (00:53:15)
