Continuity mistake: At the safe house, as Carmen picks up and begins to read the book "How To Be A Good Spy," the wicker basket tower stands to the side of the stone wall, behind the wicker bench. Yet when she says, "A good spy has no fear," the wicker tower stands in front of the stone wall. Throughout this scene the tower changes position, depending on camera angle. Then, after Ms. Gradenko arrives, the tower and its contents change position in the following consecutive shots. (00:34:15 - 00:35:20)

Continuity mistake: After Hermione punches Malfoy, when he and his friends run away, Malfoy says,"Not a word to anyone, understood?" just as Hermione says, "That felt good." Then Malfoy says "jumped up mudblood" when he enters the doorway and as Ron says, "Not good," Malfoy says, "Mark my words." However, when future Hermione and Harry duck and hide, the scenario differs. As Malfoy and friends run, he says everything, "Not a word to anyone, understood?" through "jumped up mudblood. Mark my words," and that's when Hermione says, "That felt good." (01:23:30 - 01:49:50)

Audio problem: As Sirius, the dog, drags Ron towards the Whomping Willow, Hermione and Harry chase after them. When Sirius actually backs up into the hole below the tree trunk, Ron begins to shout, "Help!" In the next shot, as Harry starts to stretch his arms forward to dive down, Hermione runs behind him and visually she shouts Ron's name, though there is no sound heard. (01:28:15)

Continuity mistake: When Juni and Carmen arrive at Floop's castle, in the first shot, as their heads pop up out of the water, their hair is completely flat and soaked, yet, in the next shot as they see the Thumb Thumb and all the following shots, their hair is not nearly as wet. (00:59:45)

Revealing mistake: When Juni saves Foogle and they run out of the Virtual Room, a Thumb Thumb appears in the corridor. This Thumb Thumb, being real as opposed to CG, has wide back wedges at its heel to support the body inside. (01:07:35)

Continuity mistake: As Minion is about to turn Gregorio into a Fooglie, he says, "Every weekday morning between 7:30 and 8:00," and Juni's unfolded Fooglie picture lies on the table beside the hat, with the folds visible. In the next close-up as the machine scans the picture, the paper's position differs, note the folds and the hat. (This has nothing to do with the angle of the camera.) (01:05:20)

Continuity mistake: When Juni says, "This is the ventilator shaft, here," in the wide shots the map faces a particular way, however, in the close-up of the map with his right thumb, the map now faces the opposite way in his hands. (This has nothing to do with the angle of the camera.) (01:02:25)

Continuity mistake: After Juni asks Agent Donnagon about his mom and dad, he ascends to Carmen, who waits up top. In the wide shots as Juni ascends and descends, the puzzle shaped cover on the circular opening, over Juni's head, is positioned a certain way, yet in the semi close-ups it is positioned differently.
