Super Grover

Continuity mistake: After Rachel tells Ray that Robbie took the car, when Ray runs down the steps long shadows are cast. When Ray turns around to see what everyone is looking at, all shadows are gone, only to reappear in the next shot. Then when Ray runs to his yard, the angle of his shadow is entirely different.

Continuity mistake: When Ray runs into the street he realizes that everyone is looking behind him, towards his house, so he turns to the right and looks over his right shoulder, but in the next shot facing his house, he's turning to the left and looks over his left shoulder. (00:13:30)

Continuity mistake: After Ray finds out that Robbie took the car, he runs into the street. In the first shot he stops at least 6-8 ft away from the solid double street lines to turn, yet in the next shot he's standing right on the double lines. (00:13:25)

Continuity mistake: When Ray speeds past Manny's there are long shadows cast, but in the next shot when he pulls into the driveway shadows are gone. When he, Mary Ann and Tim speak the shadows are back only to disappear in the next shot, and so on, all depending on camera angle. (00:04:10)

Audio problem: When Ray carries Rachel out of Mary Ann's destroyed house, Ray and Robbie walk past some wreckage and are near the van, yet in the next shot they just start walking past that wreckage again. Additionally, the audio is not in sync with Ray's lips in the first shot. (00:45:40)

Continuity mistake: When Ray is at the News Producer's van, she grips and starts to push the videotape with her palm up, but in the next close-up it's the opposite, she's pushing it with her palm down. (00:44:00)

Continuity mistake: As the News Producer speaks with Ray amidst the plane wreckage, her black bag, her actions, and how she hold things such as food trays, change abruptly in consecutive shots, while Max searches for food in the locker. (00:43:15)

Continuity mistake: Just before the news van leaves, in the shot facing the News Producer she asks Ray, "Hey were you on that plane?" then extends her left arm to touch Ray with her left hand. However, in the shot facing Ray, she has her right arm extended to touch Ray. (00:45:15)

Audio problem: In Boston, just after the military destroyed the tripod, in the tunnel Ray holds Rachel and we hear him say, "I love you. It's ok. It'll be ok," but his lips really say, "I love you. It'll be ok. It'll be ok." (01:45:10)

Continuity mistake: As Mary Ann's house shakes during the alien attack, when Ray shouts, "Where do we go? Robbie, this is your house. Where do we go?" Robbie is hugging Rachel. In this shot Rachel's hair is extremely curly, whereas in previous and following shots it's barely even wavy. (Most likely she's the body double.) (00:40:15)

Continuity mistake: In Mary Ann's basement, when Ray and Robbie are looking out the small window, as the aliens begin their attack, Rachel runs over and Robbie hugs her tightly. However, in the next shot of Robbie and Ray, Rachel is gone, yet in the very next close-up Robbie is still hugging Rachel. (The shot of Ray and Robbie without Rachel is cut from a previous shot, before she runs to them.) (00:39:30)

Visible crew/equipment: When Ray and Ogilvy play tug-of-war with the gun, as the aliens rummage around the cellar, Ogilvy finally pulls it away from Ray. In the next close-up of Ogilvy and his gun, the boom mic dips down for a moment, but it's gone in Ogilvy's next close-up. (01:28:15)

Continuity mistake: When Ray parks the van at the side of the road, the van is about 60-70 ft away from the tall wood post, at the road intersection up ahead. However, in the first shot of the military vehicles approaching, the van is parked directly in front of that wood post at the intersection, and this also occurs in the shot as Ray shouts, "Robbie! You wanna go in that direction?" (00:47:40 - 00:49:00)

Continuity mistake: When the van is parked at the side of the road, as Rachel heads off Ray shouts, "Every time you guys don't listen to me I'm telling your mother..." In the next shot the van is seen quite a distance away as Rachel reaches the shoreline. After seeing the floating bodies Ray picks her up, turns around and as he begins to run the van is seen, only this time is much, much closer. Ray never moved the van, as shown in the following shots.

Continuity mistake: When Robbie shouts at the soldiers driving by, puddle water splashes all over him, and the pattern and/or amount of water all over Robbie's jacket varies shot to shot. For example: when Ray shouts, "You're in charge now, you tell me..." there are many water spots on both sides of Robbie's jacket, but two shots later as Robbie shouts, "We get back at them!" only his left side is wet. Quick drying. (00:49:10)

Continuity mistake: After losing the van the trio sit in the diner, and things on their table repeatedly change, such as when the gunshot rings out. Robbie first flips the coffee cup upside down, but in the next shot when Robbie turns the cup is upright, only to be upside down again when Rachel runs into his arms. (00:55:20)
