The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: The large '007' with smiley faces that are painted on Data's utility belt cover changes throughout the shots, from the time we first see it at the start when he practices with the suction cup dart. (00:03:50 - 00:48:10)

The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: When Data does the 'bully blinders', his utility belt is high up on his waist and the flashlights are at the same height. Next wideshot the belt is much lower and the right light is much higher than the left. (00:48:10)

The Goonies (1985)

Revealing mistake: After dropping the frame and breaking the glass, in the close-up of Chunk's arm removing the map from the frame, the arm is larger and much older looking – note the wrinkled elbow and thin arm/hand, whereas Chunk's elbow has puckers at the joint and he has short and chubby arms/hands.

The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: The red bandana that Brand wears during the first half of the movie repeatedly changes the way it is folded around his forehead. Note the white/black distinctive designs that constantly change between shots. (00:40:30)

The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: When Data's blue suction dart is stuck to the orange drum and the string is retracting, the thin orange string we saw being released from Data's belt has turned into a thicker brown cord, which pulls him toward the drum. (00:03:55)

The Goonies (1985)

Continuity mistake: At the start, when Data practices with the orange drum, just as the blue suction dart is released, the stick part remains on his belt while the suction cup and string go flying off, but in the next close-up the stick is between the string and suction cup, then the next shot of the belt shows the stick is gone.

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)
