Revealing mistake: After the Machete Bubbles knock-out the four Thumb Thumbs, Juni and Carmen descend on their individual wires, then once on the ground they remove their wires. The wires that remain hanging are not the ones they actually descended with. (01:02:10)

Continuity mistake: After Carmen zaps the Thumb Thumb with Machete's Electroshock Gumball, she takes another wrapped one out to show Juni. In the wide shot, the wrapped gumball that she holds does not have a back sticker, yet, in the close-up she turns the gumball over to read, "Long lasting," on the back white sticker with the ingredients.

Revealing mistake: While Carmen and Juni nick spy goodies in Machete's shop, Carmen picks up a mini laser light saber and turns it on. As she moves it back and forth the reflection is visible in the dome below, but only the handle she holds is actually reflected. (00:56:25)

Continuity mistake: When the kids take the map from Machete, there is no hat on the headboard, no table, no lamp or drink and his pillow has vertical lines. Yet in the following shot when Machete wakes up to hear the rumble of the plane's engine and realizes the map is gone, numerous things change drastically. The headboard, though similar, is not the same one, his pillow now has broad horizontal lines, there is a yellow hard hat hanging on the corner of his headboard and a lamp on a small table with a large drink on it, are beside the bed!!

Continuity mistake: While Machete is asleep, Juni takes the map to Floop's castle and Machete grabs his wrist. As Carmen tries to loosen Machete's grip, in the semi close-up Machete has Juni's bare wrist in his tight grasp, but in the following close-up he holds the entire cuff of Juni's shirt within his fingers. The way Juni holds the map differs in both shots as well. (00:56:05)

Visible crew/equipment: Machete shows the mini spy plane to Carmen and Juni, and when he says, "It's built for one passenger..." visible in the plane's window, standing beside Carmen, there is a perfect reflection of a crew member holding the large white reflector screen, just out of camera shot.

Continuity mistake: At the safehouse, when Carmen looks at the photo of Machete and her father, in the shot facing her, the photo is visible from the back side. In this shot, Gregorio (the taller one) actually wears a white tux, while Machete wears the black tux and much of his white shirt is exposed, and the background is very dark. Yet, in the close-ups of the photo, Gregorio wears the correct black tux, Machete's white shirt is not visible at all and the background is very light. It's obviously different photos. Also, later when they arrive at Machete's, when Carmen has the photo in her hands, it is the same 'wrong' photo when the shot faces her. In the close-up of the code names the fold in the photo differs from the previous shot and as Carmen flips the pic there is a brief glimpse of Machete's white shirt and dark background. The way she holds the photo in the close-ups and wide shots differ as well. When Carmen is at the park, the fold and handwriting behind the photo differ in the shot facing Carmen and the close-up of the writing. (00:34:50 - 00:46:05)

Revealing mistake: When Ms. Gradenko fights with the BuddyPack the wires are visible to her left leading to the floor beside her. Earlier, when the Thumb Thumbs take BuddyPacks from the table, the black harnesses are visible behind the packs. When Juni accidentally sets one off, as it flies it does not have any visible harness, though when Ms. Gradenko fights with it there is an attached harness. (00:39:30)

Continuity mistake: When Ms. Gradenko walks into the safehouse, the table to Carmen's right is visible and there are no glasses on it. Though in many following shots, including just after Ms. Gradenko hits her head and falls, there are two glasses of milk and cookies on a tray sitting on that table. However, when Ms. Gradenko is hit with the BuddyPack and flies into the chair the glasses of milk are gone, but when Juni says, "Bad hair day!" the milk and cookies are back. (00:36:05 - 00:39:50)

Continuity mistake: At Floop's castle, Ingrid asks Floop, "Where are the OSS agents you've taken?" Gregorio holds the huge spoon in his right hand, then places it in his left hand and when he looks down to see the fur napkin on the plate in front of him, he makes a face. In the next shot the spoon is back in his right hand and the fur napkin is now on the table under his left hand. (00:32:35)
