The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: During his escape from the County Jail, when Jake tries to open the locked car door, in the interior shots looking out, the window between Francis and Jake is completely covered in water droplets, but in the exterior shot facing Francis that window is spotless. (00:01:45)

The Goonies (1985)

Audio problem: In the cave at the start of their trek, when we hear Andy say, "We've been walking forever. How much further do you plan on going?", her mouth is not in sync at all with those words. (00:47:40)

The Goonies (1985)

Revealing mistake: On Inferno's deck, when Data takes a stand against the Fratellis before he shoots the blue suction dart/string, the close-up of his utility belt is the same one seen at the start when he practices on the orange drum. Note the differences in the background and clothing/inventions under the coat. (01:31:50)

The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: In the Walsh kitchen, after Mouth gets wet, Mikey unfolds the map and holds it in front of him. In the next close-up facing Mikey, Chunk, Data and Mouth, take note of their hair, particularly Chunk's and Data's. It is much shorter than previous and following shots. (00:22:30)

The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: In the cave, when Data does his 'slick shoes' there are metal plates attached to the back of his sneakers and strings which lead up the back of his pants, that instantly appear and disappear. (01:17:10)

The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: After Andy kisses Mikey, when she tells Stef about it, her long hair is at her back, but in the close-ups her hair is in front of both shoulders, but next wideshot it's all behind again. (01:14:10)

The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: When Brand says, "Why couldn't I have had a little sisterÂ…instead of that?" it cuts to Mikey as he raises his left arm to the 'triple stones', but next close-up it's his right arm that is raised. (01:10:20)

The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: In the cave, when Francis Fratelli begins to balance himself on the beam, in the close-up when he shouts, "Don't push, Jake," the flashlight is under his left armpit, but next wideshot he holds the flashlight in his right hand. (01:18:00)

The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: We see Mouth climb down into the fireplace passage after Brand and Andy. We then see a close-up of Stef's pink high-tops descend, being helped by Mouth (we see his rain slicker), who's already down there with Brand and Andy, who are visible in the background. It cuts to a close-up of Stef, with Data's white Nike high-tops climbing down after her. But the next close-up is of Mouth's feet (black Nikes) just coming down as Brand grabs his ankle and says, "Come on!" Impossible since Mouth was already down there. (00:45:20)

The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: At his house, when Brand is working out with the chest expander, in the close-up the black handles are straight bars attached to the springs, but in the wideshot as Mikey conspires with the others to tie up Brand, the handles are now angled and have notches between the springs. (Likely the close-up is a take from the earlier scene when Mouth first arrives.) (00:22:45)

The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: When the Fratellis first catch up with the Goonies in the cave, in the close-up Data turns to his right to face the Fratellis, but next wideshot he is turned to his left as he gestures to them. The other kids' positions change between shots as well. (01:17:30)

Other mistake: Up in the Walsh's attic, in three shots of Mikey as he continues to say, "Then he loaded it all up onto his ship and he sailed away into the sunset..." there is something black hanging down from the top of the screen that stays put as the camera pans in closer to Mikey's face. It disappears, then reappears when he says, "Trapped." (00:17:20)

Trivia: At the end, when Danny is heard quoting from the paper he wrote for Dr. Sweeney, the quote which begins "We are not enemies, but friends..." is the closing paragraph from President Abraham Lincoln's first Inaugural Address on the 4th of March 1861.

Continuity mistake: On the Inferno, when Sloth swings in and rescues Stef and Mouth from the gangplank, as he drops them on deck Sloth wears all black high-tops with black laces, but in the previous and following shots he wears his usual black high-tops with white soles and laces.
