Continuity mistake: In Minas Tirith, while Gandalf and Pippin speak on the balcony, the position and actual height of the chair beside the fireplace varies significantly, as does the position of the candle wall fixture which is attached to the wall, above the chair. (This has nothing to do with camera angles. Extended Edition.) (00:53:50 - 00:55:00)

Audio problem: As Gandalf and Pippin stand on the balcony at Minas Tirith, Gandalf says, "This will be the end of Gondor..." but as he audibly continues to say, "...as we know it," visually his mouth says something completely different. (Extended Edition) (00:54:15)

Continuity mistake: When Éowyn rests on a chaise in the golden hall of Meduseld, Aragorn speaks with her. The position of her robe, the tassled pillows and tassled material, under her feet, etc., changes in consecutive close-ups, semi close-ups and wide shots. (Extended Edition) (00:27:35)

Continuity mistake: After Gandalf and Pippin have their unfortunate meeting with Denethor, they walk towards the prow of the city. As they stand there, the distance between themselves and the White Tree/guards/statues differs significantly between Gandalf's and Pippin's individual close-ups, their back shots and when Gandalf moves closer to Pip. In some of these consecutive shots soldiers walk up the ramp in front of the White Tree, yet in other shots they're non-existent. (Extended Edition) (00:48:50)

Continuity mistake: At Edoras, Gandalf and Pippin ride out on Shadowfax, as Merry runs up to the watchtower, followed by Aragorn, to watch them leave. The actual wood of the fence (height, direction of slant and amount in set) differs significantly (especially to Merry's left) in the shot facing Merry's back, as Aragorn reaches him, and the wide shots facing them. (Extended Edition) (00:36:15)

Revealing mistake: As the army of robots approach, there are close-ups of Ms. Gradenko smiling and as she claps her hands her fake scalp wrinkles where it meets her real forehead. Teri Hatcher's bald cap is blatantly obvious in quite a few shots. (01:16:45)

Continuity mistake: After their parents ascend into the ceiling, Carmen and Juni confront their doppelgangers, who run up the wall, flip over and land in the center of the 'water' outline on the floor. After Carmen exclaims, "Oh shi...take mushrooms!" when they all walk towards the 'water' outline to come face to face in the wide shot, the robots must walk towards the center though they were already there.

Continuity mistake: After Ingrid and Carmen disappear through the ceiling, when robots Carmen and Juni appear, in the corridor towards the stairs there is a tall silver pedestal. When Carmen and Juni actually battle the two robots, as Carmen pulls robo-Juni's hands behind his back, there are multi-colored lights all over that pedestal. (01:13:00 - 01:15:45)

Audio problem: As the King of the Dead and his army listen, Aragorn shouts, "You have my word! Fight, and I will release you..." However, in the wide shot as he continues, "...from this living death!" Aragorn's mouth shouts something completely different. (Extended Edition) (01:56:10)

Audio problem: When Faramir and his men ride out of Minas Tirith, Gandalf tries to dissuade him from going. Faramir says, "This is the city of the Men of Númenor. I will gladly give my life to defend her beauty, her memory." It then cuts to a tight close-up as he rides past Gandalf when he continues saying, "her wisdom," and his closed lips do not move at all. (Extended Edition.) (01:30:10)

Revealing mistake: Just after Harry attacks Snape at the Shrieking Shack, he insists on knowing about Peter Pettigrew. In the next shot, as Lupin says, "He was at school with us. We thought he was our friend," there are wedges under the wheels of the piano, however, in the following shots they're gone. (01:34:10)

Continuity mistake: At the Shrieking Shack, when Scabbers tries to run away, as he runs towards the small hole in the wall, the shape of the hole differs in the shot facing the rat's hind and the next shot facing Scabbers, just as he enters the hole. (Obviously before the hole enlarges to accommodate Peter.) (01:35:05)

Continuity mistake: As Carmen and Juni are chased by the Thumb Thumbs in speedboats, Carmen shouts, "You weirdo! You switched it to manual!" As the Guppy and speedboats round the man in the small boat, there is a vast difference between the consecutive close-up, wide and aerial shots. (00:23:20)

Continuity mistake: When the kids in the Guppy zoom towards the boat, in the first shot facing the man in the boat, the large distinct building is clearly visible on shore in the background. Yet, in the following shot facing the front of the Guppy as they actually fly over, that building on shore is now behind the Guppy! Then in the next shot, at the same angle as the first, the shoreline is completely different. (00:23:30)

Continuity mistake: When Carmen yells, "You're strong Juni!" after the extreme close-up of Juni's fist, in the next shot a specific piece of loose painted plaster falls from the top left corner of the hole, as his fist hits. However, in the next two shots of Juni, that piece of loose plaster is actually back up on the wall!! (01:15:15)
