Continuity mistake: Ray Garraty is 16 when he participates in The Long Walk, and it is also mentioned in Chapter 1 that his father had taken him to see a Long Walk when he was ten. However, in Chapter 7, he thinks about how his father had been taken away eleven years ago, never to be seen again. So when did Garraty's father disappear? Five years ago or eleven years ago?

Other mistake: When the teens first grew into giants, their clothes did not grow with them, so they had to make improvised clothing out of theater curtains. In the end, when exposed to the shrinking gas, the teens become their regular size, and the improvised clothes also shrink with them. No one else's clothes are affected by the gas in this way.
Plot hole: The giant-sized teenagers show themselves at the garden party and start making threats about taking over the town. They then spend the night in the theatre, and the next day they decide to cut off all communications to and from the town. For some reason, not one of the party-goers, or the sheriff, decided to call someone during the night and tell the remarkable story about 30 feet tall teenagers seizing the power through force.
Revealing mistake: When the girl on the motorcycle is trying to tie Mike's legs together by driving around them in circles, his legs are obviously props. This also goes for later, when he is lying on the ground and the townspeople are trying to tie him up. When his legs are in shot, they look fake, and never moves an inch.

Continuity mistake: When Homer sits down in the movie theater, all the rows are completely full, including the row behind him. When he turns around to talk to Selma, the seats directly behind him are empty. Then, when Homer turns back to the screen, the Sea Captain and Dr. Hibbert appear sitting directly behind him.

Continuity mistake: When Lisa is on board the plane, she is wearing stiletto heels (best seen when she is collapsing in the bathroom). However, when she is running through the airport, she is wearing flat shoes. This is most easily seen when she comes of the transporter belt, when she trips and one of her feet swings into the air. Later, when she kicks Jack on the stairs of her house, she is wearing stiletto heels again.
