Continuity mistake: In Drew's hotel room, in the shot from under the bed Claire is lying on her right side – note the position of her leg, as she reaches for her shoe and pulls it out. However, in the next shot as she pulls it out from under the bed (which she already did in the previous shot), she is on her knees. (01:20:00)

Audio problem: Outside the hotel, Drew tells Claire about the "fiasco" and says, "And by the way, I didn't say million. I said billion!" In the next shot facing Claire, he is still talking though nothing is heard. (01:23:55)

Continuity mistake: During Mitch's memorial, in the shot from behind Hollie, she places the mic on the stage floor directly in front of the multi-lamp borderlights, mounted at the edge of the entire stage. In the next shot facing Hollie from the audience POV, all four borderlights - each is 6-7 feet long - are actually gone and the entire stage's wood edge is clearly seen. They are back in all following shots, except one, from the same angle, and they were also gone when Hollie said, "Something huge," earlier. (01:35:00)

Continuity mistake: After his father's funeral, when Drew turns on the ignition and in following shots, the leather band that he wears on his right wrist (not the watch) is clasped with its strap facing his thumb, yet when he passes the sign for 60B, the band goes round the opposite way. Then, when he listens to The Hombres the leather band is flipped back, but when he picks up Global Business Today magazine it's switched yet again, and so on. (01:43:00)

Continuity mistake: In the Great Hall, after Hermione quips, "Well spotted!" Ron imitates his brother (when he asked Angelina to the Yule Ball) by lifting up his arms to mimic dancing, and Snape promptly smacks the back of Ron's head. In the next shot, Ron holds a pencil in his formerly empty right hand. (01:11:15)

Continuity mistake: In the Gryffindor common room, after Ron heads up to the dorm, Harry realizes Sirius has gone. In the close-up of the Daily Prophet, the unwrinkled headline "Teenage Tragedy" is displayed prominently as the newspaper burns up, whereas in the previous shot (before Harry's close-up) the "Teenage" part of the headline is unseen.

Continuity mistake: In the dorm, after Ron moans, "Yeah, that's me, Harry Potter's stupid friend" as Harry leaves his bed and walks to Ron, there is a single rectangular window beside his bed and another window about a foot above it. Later, after the Yule Ball, in the exterior zoom-in shot the crow flies toward the side-by-side double window, arched at the top, as it heads for the window sill, and in the next interior shot, the crow lands on the sill as Harry sleeps beside that window. (00:38:30 - 01:22:30)

Continuity mistake: In the maze, when Cedric says, "For a moment there I thought you were gonna let it get me," the tear on his shirt, at his right shoulder, is directly on the seam and quite frayed. At the cemetery, when Harry says, "Cedric, we have to get back to the cup. Now! "the tear is not on the seam, and it's smooth with blackened edges. Back in the maze, when Amos approaches his son's body, the tear differs yet again. The dirt on Cedric's shirt changes as well. (01:58:20 - 01:59:40)

Continuity mistake: When Harry and Cedric are transported to the cemetery, the Triwizard cup lands on the grassy slope, well beyond the Riddle monument, with its luminescent top facing away from the cauldron area. During Priori Incantatem, three shots after Voldemort exclaims, "He's mine!" the cup lies on the corner of the Riddle monument's stone base and it faces the opposite way. The cup is back up on the grassy area in the following shots. (01:19:00 - 01:28:40)

Audio problem: At the cemetery, as Harry lies on the ground, when Voldemort leans over him and says, "If they speak of you they'll speak only of how you begged for death," in the shot facing Harry, before Voldemort continues to speak, his mouth still moves, though nothing is heard. (01:27:25)

Continuity mistake: In the Triwizard champions' tent, Rita's photographer captures the moving photograph of Hermione and Harry hugging, and subsequently letting go of each other. Later, when Hermione reads from The Daily Prophet, just before Ron opens his package, in the close-up of the newspaper their hug, the release, and where they both stand are entirely different in the moving photograph. (00:54:50 - 01:05:20)

Continuity mistake: When the Horntail is out for Harry's blood, in the overhead shot, as he hangs on the window frame his sleeve is pulled up showing his bare arm. However, in the next close-up as he still grips the frame, his sleeve is tucked tightly into his glove. (01:00:50)
