Continuity mistake: At the mass pirate hanging, the left sock (viewer's right) of the man who stands beside the boy is up to his knee. When they sing, "Heave ho," that sock is down, but when they sing, "Never shall we die," it's higher up again.

Continuity mistake: At the meeting of the brethren, when Barbossa stands on the table and fires his pistol, the height of the left and right cannonballs he holds differs between shots (the difference between each other, not to the table).

Continuity mistake: As Barbossa, Elizabeth and Jack walk towards Will, Beckett and Jones there is a close-up of the latter's feet on the sand. In the next shot, the sand around their legs significantly differs.

Continuity mistake: At the end, when Jack says, "Drink up me hearties, yo ho," the compass rope flips its direction, from hanging across his palm to over the back of his hand, between shots, including the compass close-ups.

Continuity mistake: The cord necklace Will wears, which has several things dangling from it - particularly a distinctive white shell, flips round the opposite way between shots within a scene, several times during the film. For example, before and after the maelstrom, including the ceremony Barbossa performs.

Trivia: There is an additional poignant scene after all the credits roll.

Continuity mistake: On the small sand spit, when Jack, Elizabeth and Barbossa meet with Will, Beckett, and Davy Jones, the leather cuff Jack wears on his right hand actually disappears and reappears twice during the meeting.

Continuity mistake: After Wilbur faints, in the shot facing Lurvy, as he throws a pail of water on the buttermilk bathed pig, he holds the bottom of the pail in his left hand and grips the wire handle at the top with his right hand. In the next shot of Wilbur, Lurvy holds the bottom of the pail with his right hand. (00:57:40)

Continuity mistake: After Homer drops the butcher knife when he sees the web, in the shot of Homer, Edith and Lurvy, before Fern joins them, Edith holds the large blue sponge, but as Wilbur turns to see the web she is visible behind him and the sponge is gone. When Edith says, "It's nothing short of a bonafide miracle," in Charlotte's close-up, the sponge is back in her hand. (00:37:10)

Visible crew/equipment: When Harold meets with Professor Hilbert in his office, as Hilbert says, "I've been over it again and again, and I know how hard this is," the reflection of a crewmember, wearing a black shirt and baseball cap, is seen moving behind Hilbert. (01:25:40)

Deliberate mistake: After Frodo puts on the Ring at Mount Doom, when the Nazgûl fly away from the Black Gate, the next close-up of Gandalf's reaction is actually a flipped shot - the wizard's smudges are on the opposite side of his face.

Trivia: At the unemployment office, when Larry Daley (played by Ben Stiller) speaks to Debbie he says that he felt a connection with her when he first walked into her office and with a deadpan face she quips back that she did not. Debbie is played by Ben Stiller's real-life mom, actress and comedian, Anne Meara.

Continuity mistake: At Minas Tirith, when Gandalf knocks Denethor out with his staff and then shouts, "Prepare for battle!" the silver broach he wears on his cloak is backwards (not upside-down). Interestingly, his belt is actually on properly, and the background is also as it should be. (02:01:25)

Deliberate mistake: Just after we hear Gandalf shout, "Get the women and children out! Get them out! Retreat!" there is a flipped shot of many soldiers with their swords at their right side, as some run through the gate being held open by others. (00:22:40)

Continuity mistake: Whilst Sam runs up the stairs to rescue Frodo, before Shagrat makes off with the Mithril shirt, quite a few changes occur between the two consecutive shots. The larger hole in Shagrat's chain maille sleeve shrinks, his hair goes from flat and stringy to fuller and neater, the way he grips the shirt differs, and in the second shot he wears something reddish - which is seen through the chain maille tears, but in the previous shot it was black.

Continuity mistake: Legolas always carries two matching knives, crisscrossed under the quiver at his back. When he boards the Mûmak, Legolas removes one of those knives and uses it. Problem is, while the knife is still in his hand, there are two long silver blades that are still quite visible under his quiver. (00:42:30)

Revealing mistake: After Théoden orders to reform the line, when the Mûmakil approach, Éowyn and Merry (from his eyes up, actually) are seen in close-up as she shouts during their charge. This is the same close-up of them shown earlier, when the Rohirrim charge at the Orcs, only it's been flipped for this scene. (00:28:35 - 00:32:30)

Deliberate mistake: Just after Gandalf shouts offscreen, "Fight! Fight to the last man! Fight for your lives!" there is a flipped close-up of Gandalf turning, when he hears Pippin shout, "Gandalf!" and his sword is at his right side, the opposite of the norm. (00:23:25)

Continuity mistake: When Pippin finds Merry's cloak, in the shot facing the ground he picks it up and Merry's Elf leaf broach is vertical, as it points towards Pip's right. However, in the next shot facing Pippin, the broach is now horizontal and points to his left (viewer's right). (00:46:50)

Deliberate mistake: After Théoden shouts, "Rally to me!" when the Nazgûl flies towards the King, in Théoden's close-up the buckle on his helmet's chinstrap is on his left, instead of the usual right. (00:37:45)
