Super Grover

Continuity mistake: While performing brain surgery on Joe Plaice, Stephen, whose sleeves are rolled up to his elbows, reaches for a spoon with his freckled hand. In the following close-up it is blatantly apparent that it is not Paul Bettany's hand lifting the spoon, not to mention the bit of sleeve (not rolled up) that is visible at the bottom of the screen at the wrist. Then in the overhead shot the table with the instruments is visible, which includes the two boxes and silver spoon. In the next close-up the dark brown box's position and the spoon's position differ (before he picks up the spoon). (00:23:50)

Peter Pan (2003)

Revealing mistake: After Peter watches the Darlings and the Lost Boys through the nursery window, he begins to fly off. The camera pans onto the rug to show Peter's exiting shadow on the long bright spot of light coming through the window, which Wendy notices. This lit area on the rug is much larger and brighter than in the previous or following shots. (01:41:35)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: As Wendy approaches the Lost Boys to give them their medicine, in the close-up they surround Peter begging to be killed. In the next wide shot Tootles pulls one of the twins close and puts his arm around him, though in the next shot they are positioned as they were in the first close-up. Wendy's necklace changes within these shots as well. (00:39:15)

Peter Pan (2003)

Deliberate mistake: As the Darlings and the Lost Boys laugh in the nursery, the narrator says, "There could not have been a lovelier sight...except a strange boy who was staring in at the window." When the camera pans out through the window Peter's back is visible at the right of the window. This is not Jeremy Sumpter. (01:40:00)

Continuity mistake: When the children arrive home, John does not have a mark on his forearm. As John shakes his father's hand there is a long black mark above his wrist. During the family hug while they kneel on the floor the mark is smudged. When John is on the floor with his father and the Lost Boys, Michael dumps the treasure onto the rug and in the next shot as John holds one of the twins the mark on his forearm is long and clear now. The mark changes position as well. (01:37:15 - 01:38:55)

Continuity mistake: When Wendy, John and Michael return home, in the wide shot as they look around the two swords in the toy chest, at the foot of Michael's bed, are visible. When they go to their beds Wendy places her Neverland sword into the toy chest, but the two originals' positions differ - the boys' Neverland swords are visible on their beds.
