Harry Potter and the Philosopher's/Sorcerer's Stone


- When Harry, Ron and Hermione rush to Hagrid after end-of-the-year exams, and Harry is saying something that ends with "why didn't I see it before", Hermione is mouthing his lines.

- At the start of term feast, after Harry is sorted into Gryffindor, he sits down on the right side of the table next to Ron. When the feast appears, Harry is on the other side of the table, next to Hermione.

- When the three children get past Fluffy because the harp is playing, as Fluffy wakes he dribbles on Ron's shoulder. However, when they fall down into the Devil's Snare, his shirt is completely dry.

- In the flying class scene, Hermione's hair is crimped. Later, when you see the class looking at Neville after his fall, you see that her hair is straight. The very next shot she's in, her hair's crimped again.

- When Harry receives his first letter in the mail, Dudley snatches it from him before he has a chance to open it. Then he gives it to his father (Uncle Vernon), and Uncle Vernon says "Who'd be writing to you?" If you watch Dudley carefully, you can see him mouth what Uncle Vernon is saying.

- Near the start, Percy says "Boys upstairs and down on your left, girls the same on your right". However, after the three heroes have been to investigate Fluffy and they go back to the dorms, when they reach the top of the stairs Hermione goes to the left and the boys head right.

- When the troll is about to swing at Harry for the third time with his club, Ron levitates his club in mid-air. When the club falls, it hits the trolls head with a loud thunk, then falls to the ground. But you never hear any sound of the club hitting the ground.

- In the beginning of the movie when the students are first sorted, a little red-headed girl is sorted into Hufflepuff house before Harry. Later in the movie, she is seated at dinner at the same table as Harry, meaning she would have to be in his house, which is Gryffindor. How did she switch houses?

- At the scene with the "flying" letters Harry gets one letter and tries to go in his "room". But Uncle Vernon grabs him. When Harry says, "they're my letters". If you watch closely his lips don't move.

- Daniel Radcliffe, the boy who plays Harry Potter, has naturally BLUE eyes. In some shots Chris Columbus, the director, changed Daniel's eye color. But Chris C. didn't want to use that the whole time. It's NOT a lighting problem.

- In the scene where Hermione, Ron and Harry are returning to Gryffindor's tower room after being in the third floor room for the first time, you are able to see the feet of one of the crew. It happens just as they are passing through the picture hole, where Harry turns a couple of times to check that the "door" is closing. And it is in fact, because someone is walking behind it and pushing it shut, since the picture hangs several inches off the floor.

- When Harry, Ron and Hermione are in the girls' bathroom, fighting the troll, the troll knocks out a sink 2 from the end. When the troll is knocked out, and shows Hermione when she says "Is it, dead?" you will notice that the sink that was hit is 4 from the end. Not 2 from the end, and that the one that was actually hit, is intact.

- Last scene of the Hogwarts Express: the trees to the left of the screen are blowing madly in the wind, while the trees to the right aren't moving at all.

- In the scene at the beginning of the movie where all of the letters from Hogwarts are coming into the Dursley's house, it causes everything to shake. It is quite obvious, however, that it is just the cameras that are moving as no objects in the room are moving at all (ie. the curtains, or any of the knicknacks).

- When Harry is in the potions class he is caught writing notes down, we see his neat writing in close up ... but when the camera angle changes we can see that the writing has changed in size to very large letters and quite messy writing.

- When Harry and Hagrid are in Gringotts, Hagrid takes the letter from Professor Dumbleldore out of his pocket to give to the Head Goblin. The string it is tied with has a bow that runs from the top to bottom of the envelope, and the envelope is creased. When the Goblin takes it off Hagrid, it is a different envelope - the bow runs from left to right and the envelope is not creased. When viewed from where Harry and Hagrid are standing, the final shot of the envelope again shows it is creased.

- When Ron is in the Hogwarts train with Harry he has a big dark dirt stain on his nose, but when he is sitting on the other side (with Harry) it's barely there. And he couldn't have wiped it off because Hermione later comes in and informs him, THEN he tries to wipe it off.

- On Dudley's birthday, when Mrs Dursley wakes Harry and he sits up in bed, a cloth and hand brush are hanging next to him on the inside of the cupboard door. When Dudley shoves Harry back into the cupboard, there is now a cloth and a dustpan, but no brush. When the family arrive back from the zoo, and Mr Dursley locks Harry in the cupboard, there is no cloth, brush or dustpan. Submitted by steve

- When Harry, Ron and Hermione are running away from Mrs. Norris (the cat) Harry yells "Quick hide through that door!" if you look close enough you can see that his mouth doesn't move when he says that.

- In the scene when the kids first come in the great hall, on the table to right of the camera, you can see Oliver Wood. Next to him, there are some kids, but in the next shot, the kids are gone and Wood is on the corner of the table!

- In the scene where Harry, Ron and Hermione come with Filch to Hagrid to go into the dark forest, watch the lamp Hagrid sets down. Filch says something like "A sorry lot this, Hagrid". Then the shot cuts to Hagrid (look at the lamp) then to Filch again who says "Oh good god man, you're not still on about that bloody dragon, are you?" then to Hagrid again. The lamp changes position between these shots.

- When Harry, Ron, And Hermione are heading to Hagrid's hut, near the end of the movie,you see a group of three people behind them walk into another corridor. A second or two later the same group walks into the same corridor.

- When Dudley tries to get out of the snake exhibit, he reaches straight out in front of him and is surprised to touch glass. If he did not know the glass was there, he should have been reaching down to the railing to climb out not straight ahead at nothing.

- In the scene in Diagon alley when Harry first enters there are some witches on the left hand side of the screen looking at what appears to be large lollypops and Harry walks past them. The camera angle changes and Harry walks past them again.

- After the Quiddich game, Hagrid, Ron, Hermione and Harry talk. Hagrid says, 'Nonsense. Why would Snape put a curse on Harry's broom?' But if you watch really really closely you can cleary see that his lips don't move.

- At the end of the film, when Harry is leaving on the Hogwarts Express, and the overhead shot shows the train pulling away from the station you can clearly see that Hagrid is of normal height, as the train roof is much taller than he is.

- When Harry mounts the broom and the flying keys start to attack, Ron says, "This complicates things a bit." While he is speaking, you can see Hermione mouth the words along with him while she is looking up and grimacing.

- After the final confrontation Harry has scratches on his face, particularly one on his chin. When visited by Prof Dumbledore the chin scratch is barely there but in the scene in the refectory it is back and appears larger than before.

- In the very beginning of the movie, Dumbledore is walking along Privet Drive. There is a shot of him walking past some trees. When he does this, you can see his shadow. The trees are obviously a painted set prop.

- During the Quidditch match, Hermione looks in her binoculars up to where Harry is. If you look at the reflection in the binoculars you can see Harry flailing around. She then looks over at Snape, but when we see the reflection in the binoculars we still see Harry, as if she were looking up towards him. Submitted by ACertainShadeofGreen

- While the first years are waiting at the top of the stairs just before being lead into the Great Hall for the first time, Ron's robes switch from being fully opened, to closed, then back again.

- In the scene where Harry receives his broom from Hedwig and Harry, Ron and Hermione start to open the package, watch Hermione closely. You see them from above opening it and when Hermione takes off the second string, she spills some of her juice.

- During the Quidditch game, none of the players have shadows on the ground.

- In the Quidditch scene when Harry and the Slytherin seeker are chasing the snitch and are trying to bump each other off course you can see Hogwarts in the background. They pass Hogwarts twice while going the same direction.

- Has anyone else noticed that Ron's rat during the train sequence at the beginning is at one point fake! When he is explaing his spell to Harry it comes into shot and is completely still, it moves like it is a toy.

- When Malfoy first talks, the window behind him is bright blue. He talks about "it's true then, what they are saying on the train, Harry Potter has come to Hogwarts." Everyone says "Harry Potter" and when it cuts back to Malfoy, the window is much much darker. Both a mistake in terms of continuity between windows, and also a mistake because we'd seen everyone turn up in total darkness earlier, so the window shouldn't have been light in the first place.

- In the scene straight after the Quidditch match where Harry, Hermione and Ron are telling Hagrid about their suspicions of Snape, you will see all three are wearing scarves tied in different ways. When there's a change of shots, the creases in the scarves change. This happens mostly with Hermione's.

- In the scene in the library's restricted section, Harry puts down his cloak and then his lamp. The lamp is several inches away from the cloak. When Filch enters Harry grabs the cloak and suddenly the lamp is now on top of the cloak, causing it to fall.

- When Oliver Wood is explaining Quidditch to Harry, he struggles to put the Bludger back in the trunk. You can see a rod under the trunk lift and shake it, so the Bludgers appear to be moving on their own.

- When Harry, Hermione, and Ron are on their way to Hagrid's cabin after exams, you will notice Hagrid is playing a flute. The actor playing the flute is wearing a red shirt and is very lean. When a close-up is done, Hagrid is wearing a vest and is large again. Other: In the shot where Hagrid says something like "Quiet Dursely, yeh old prune", he bends the rifle up and Uncle Vernon shoots it. Less than a second before the gun is fired, you will notice that the hole in the ceiling is pulled slightly early(less than a second), before the gunshot.

- In the scene where Neville lost control of his broomstick during flying lessons, we see a shot of him going straight towards the castle wall (this is the first time he sees the wall). When you see him zooming towards the wall there are many windows. However, when the shot changes and Neville actually bumps into the wall with his broomstick, there are no windows seen.

- Right after Hagrid tells the kids about playing music to Fluffy, they run into Professor McGonogall's classroom. Right before they run in, you can see a candle on a pole to the left of her desk. When they run up to her desk, it isn't there anymore. Submitted by ACertainShadeofGreen

- When Hedwig flies from Harry's arm, or owls deliver mail, you hear the sound of wingbeats. However, owl's feathers are specially adapted to allow for completely silent flight.

- In the scene where Harry and the Dursleys visit the zoo, the first shot you see of the snake, he is lying on a bare rock with only moss on it. He is also lying with his head facing the window, and his body is curving to the right. However, after Dudley walks away and the shot returns to the snake, his body is curving to the left and now there are plants directly behind him where there was only moss before.

- In the scene where Harry is talking to the snake in the zoo you first see the snake but then the camera turns and you see Harry in the background. You can see Dudley turns around then back again. Then the camera goes back to the snake then Harry again and Dudley turns around again and notices Harry, but why then and why not the first time he turned?

- When Harry and Ron are sat on the train, Ron's hair begins with a centre parting, but soon changes to a side parting.

- When Hermione is saying to Harry and Ron "You won't make a fool of yourself, it's in your blood," Harry and Ron have several books with them, but straight after, right before the staircase moves, they have no books in their hands.

- When Harry lands and gets off his broom after catching the Remembrall during the flying lesson, he starts running over a shadow of the castle. But in the next shot, it has either been shot at a different time of day, or he has gone past the shadow and has run further up the path.

- When Hagrid drags the Christmas tree into the castle, in the first shot there is no snow on his hair, although he has supposedly been outside for some time. When the camera angle changes his hair is now covered with snow.

- Before Ron is knocked out by the queen when they are playing chess on the way to the Philosopher's Stone, he puts the king in check. The queen then takes him, and the king is not in check. Harry is a bishop, so he can only move diagonally. When Harry moves, he ends up in front of the king. The king cannot be in checkmate, because Harry, as a bishop, can only move diagonally, not forwards, so the king's in no danger.

- During the scene with the troll, Hermione crawls over to where the sinks are and if you look at the floor you will see that there are only a few wet spots. In the very next shot, however, the whole floor is soaked (this occurs before the troll breaks all the sinks). Submitted by ACertainShadeofGreen

- When the letters come flying out of the fireplace, Dudley yells, "Please, make it stop." If you look at his lips during this time, they're not moving. Submitted by sdgirl98

- When Harry receives his letter from Hogwarts, he opens it and it looks like one letter standard size. When the shot changes, it looks like a card (but we saw Harry unfold it). And when they are in London, right before they enter The Leaky Cauldron, Standard size again but now there are more then one letter. Notice the folded left hand corner.

- In the scene where Uncle Vernon is nailing a small piece of board to the mail slot, he nails it angled slightly to the right. When Harry's letters start pouring in and the small piece of board is ripped from the door, it is angled slightly to the left.

- THIS IS MOST VISIBLE ON THE DVD...in the scene where Hagrid bends Vernon's gun,if you look closely,you can see that there is a mark on the gun.When Hagrid bends the gun,the bend is exactly where the mark is.

- When Harry is on his way to the restricted section of the library under his Invisibility Cloak, we see a shot of his hand holding the lantern (the first shot in the scene). You can see the end of his jumper. In the next shot, however, the end of his jumper is under the cloak, and it had no time to get there between shots.

- In the scene where Professor McGonagal is greeting the first years at the stairs in front of the great hall doors, if you look behind her the doors are clear like they're made with panes of glass. But in the next shot when the students follow McGonagal through the doors into the Great Hall, the doors are made of solid, not see-through, wood.

- When Uncle Vernon picks up the letters for Harry and tears them up, you can see cuts in the envelopes, probably to make it easier to tear all of them at once.

- When Harry is in the hospital wing, and he's been sleeping there for a while (time not known) as soon as he wakes up, before even lifting his head, he reaches over to the right side of his bed, picks up his glasses, and puts them on. But eairler in the movie his nightstand was on the left side of his bed, when he slept in the dormitory. It's odd how automatic Harry knew where his glasses were, even when they changed sides - he was presumably unconscious when they put him in bed, so he can't have noticed then.

- When Professor McGonagall first meets the new first years, she uses a blatant Americanism, namely the line about the sorting ceremony beginning "...momentarily." In British English, momentarily means "For a moment" I.E. . for a short length of time, and what she meant was "in a moment." Given that she is supposed to be Scottish, and they do a good job of avoiding Americanisms in the speech of the older wizards, and McGonagall always speaks very precisely anyway, the use of the term seems very out of character for her.

- In the scene when Harry, Ron and Hermoine run to Hagrids hut to ask him where he got his dragon from, Hagrid tells them a stranger wearing a hood sold it to him. Hagrid then says "seemed quite glad to get rid of it as a matter of fact", when he says "...as a matter of fact" His mouth doesn't move.

- In the scene where Hagrid sees the unicorn blood in the dark forest, take a good look at the silver puddle of blood. When Hagrid takes some on his fingers, the puddle changes shape and size.

- In the scene where the new students are walking to their rooms, there seems to be a whole lot more new students then there was in the sorting hat ceremony.

- During the chess game when the queen drives her sword through Ron's knight, if you pause it just right you can clearly tell that it's a stunt double falling off the horse.

- After Hagrid gives Dudley a tail, watch him in the background while Dudley runs around. You can see it's not Robbie Coltrane but a double with a beard.

- When Harry, Ron, and Hermione are heading to Hagrid's hut after discussing the stone, Harry says 'Why didn't I see it before?' his tie is all the way over to his right side, then when they are talking to Hagrid his tie is straight in the middle.

- When Harry brings Ron to see the mirror of Erised, if you play it in slow motion, you can clearly see the green side of the invisibility cloak, you see it when they are running to the mirror near the door they entered from.

- The Hogwarts Express leaves from platform nine and three-quarters, between platforms nine and ten at King's Cross station, London. The platforms shown in the film as nine and ten are, in fact, four and five (the only platforms that have a wall between them as shown in the film). The real platforms nine and ten are in a separate part of the real station. In addition, when Hagrid and Harry are on the footbridge, they are walking towards platform one, away from both the real platforms 9 & 10 and the film's platforms 9 & 10. No wonder Harry feels lost when Hagrid leaves him to find the train on his own!

- When Harry, Ron, and Hermoine get off the stairs (which have just moved) onto the third floor, the stairs bounce, clearly illustrating that they are not made of the hard stone they appear to be.

- In the scene where Ron and Harry are on the train to Hogwarts, the window to the compartment is open. We know this because the chocolate frog jumps out the window and is swept away by a pretty strong wind. Since the window is indeed open, shouldn't there be a visible breeze thoughout the compartment?

- When Harry, Ron, and Hermione are going through the chess game in the dungeon, Ron's final move with the knight goes off the board; if you watch carefully, you'll notice that he is on the farthest row of squares to the left as he possibly can be, and then he moves his player one space to the left. He technically should have gone off the board, but when the Queen kills him, he's back on the board.

- When Harry is taking notes in Potions class, he finishes writing all of the words to Snape's speech just as Snape turns to him. Yet, when Hermione nudges him, several seconds later, he is still writing.

- The first wand Ollivander gives to Harry has a long slim handle with 5 or so grooves carved at the wand end. When Harry puts the wand down, the grooves are even with the binding of the book lying there. When Ollivander hands Harry the second wand, look to the left by the book and you can see that not only has the wand been moved, it is actually a different wand with a shorter, wider handle and only one groove at the wand end.

- When Harry receives his Nimbus 2000 broomstick in the Great Hall, he and Ron and Hermione seem to get very excited about it and act as though they don't know what it could possibly be. It is extremely obvious what it is though, before they open it, due to the shape of the packaging.

- At the beginning, Dumbledore is taking out all of the street lights, from one shot, the street light closest to Dumbledore on HIS right is still lit, but in the next shot, which is a close up of him taking the light, and shots later, the street light is out and he never "took" the light from that one.

- In the scene where Harry pushes his trolley at the trainstation by himself, a black man in a suit runs in a great hurry past Harry and says 'sorry' to him. In the next shot, when you see Harry asking the conductor for Platform Nine & Three Quarters, in the background the same man has suddenly stopped rushing and is walking rather calmly.

- In the scene where the pupils are waiting on the stairs before being sorted into their houses, Malfoy speaks to Harry and is clearly at the top of the stairs. However as the pupils go into the dining room, Malfoy is nowhere to be seen in at least the first 30 pupils.

- When Harry, Ron, and Hermione are in the staircases, watch the pictures on the right: they are not moving, but when the camera changes all the pictures are moving.

- When Harry sneaks into the restricted section of the library with his lantern, he puts the lantern down on the ledge and the light doesn't even flicker, you can tell it's a sort of lightbulb, not a candle.

- As Malfoy goes over to Harry and introduces himself and Ron laughs, Malfoy looks to Harry's right to Ron, then when they walk to enter into the great hall, they show Ron on Harry's left.

- When all of the letters are arriving from Hogwarts at the Dursleys' house, it is obvious that the ones flying around the room are just single pieces of paper and not thick envelopes containing letters.

- When the three heroes first go into the forbidden corridor and are spotted by Filch's cat, they run away, through the large horizontal corridor which must be at least 40 metres long (since we are given two long shots of it and neither of them connects by any physical object). They hide behind a wooden door which they close afterwards. When Filch looks in the other end of the corridor then leaves and we hear a very silent click, Hermione says 'Filch is gone.' The door they're behind does not seem to be open at all, and even if it is open a bit on the right side, Hermione's on the left side of it so she can't see whether Filch is gone or not. And can you hear a silent click of a closing door from forty metres?

- When Harry and Ron rush into the bathroom after the troll to rescue Hermione, they push open the closed doors, but wouldn't they be open from when the troll went in there moments before? The doors can't have closed after the troll as when Harry and Ron push open the door, it stays open.

- When Harry, Ron, and Hermione go after the Philosopher's Stone, the harp stops playing. They look up at the dog, but its shadow is cast on the ceiling above them as well as on top of them. This shows there were lights behind the 3.

- In the chess scene, when Ron falls off the horse, he is lying on his side on the floor with one knee bent so that one foot is higher than the other. When Harry and Hermione run over to check on him, one foot is on top of the other.

- In the scene near the end of the movie where Harry boards Hogwarts Express to go home, Hagrid stands on the platform and waves goodbye. He is wearing a coat and looks huge, as usual,but you can see when he waves, that his hand seems rather small compared to the rest of his huge frame.

- When Mc. McGonnagall is talking to the children before their sorting, you can tell when the camera is on her that the lighting is candle-like(note the flicker). When the camera cuts to the children, there is no flicker (check out Hermione).

- Harry walks to the quidditch pitch, the bristles on his broom are neat and tidy, ending in a point. He stands next to Wood, still neat, but as soon as he mounts his broom and flies, the bristles have become played out and messy.

- In the chess scene, at the end of the (overlong) montage of shots of pieces being smashed, the White Queen turns her attention to a Black Castle. The first stroke of her sword clearly goes through the structure of the castle, which disintegrates. We cut to various different angles and watch pieces of the destroyed castle flying all over the place. Cut back to the original angle, and we see the Queen attacking again, but the Castle is completely intact - only the figure from on top of it is missing. And it can't have been the second castle, since that's Hermione's position.

- In the first scene you see Professor McGonagall as a cat turning into her. When the cat is transforming you see a shadow of the cat on a wall but look at the cat, nothing has happened to the cat, it just sat there.

- After Hermione say's "It's the 3rd floor, it's forbidden," you can see all 3 actors look at the column before the flame even erupts.

- Just as Harry runs towards the wall to reach Platform 9 3/4, it is obvious that the owl in the cage is now a stuffed one.

- In their first flying lesson they are all lined up standing next to their brooms and when the teacher walks to the end of the line, the camera cuts to her feet walking. The brooms have somehow disappeared on the side closest to the camera in this shot.

- During Neville's ill-fated flying lesson, as he approaches the statue from behind, we see that the statue is placed atop a round turret with alternating levels of bricks around the top of the turret. Neville's robe then snags on the statue. When we see the front of the statue as Neville falls, the statue is now standing atop a flat, level section of wall.

- When Petunia covers Dudley's eyes with her hands and leads him to the table on his birthday, Dudley has a red mark on his left cheek that looks like Petunia's lipstick. The mark is gone as Petunia removes her hands.

- At Kings Cross, just as Percy Weasley is about to run through the wall onto platform 9 3/4, we see a man and a woman walking past him, but when the shot changes direction, they have both disappeared.

- In the scene at the very end of the movie when Hermione and Harry are getting on the train, Hermione says "Feels strange a bit going home, doesn't it?" Harry responds "I'm not going home, not really." If you look closely, Harry says the words and his mouth moves. Then the camera changes angles. Harry mouths the words of his once more, but no sound comes out.

- During the troll scene, there is a row of hooks in the bathroom. An item (towel or shirt) is hanging on one of the hooks behind Ron as the troll tries to hit Harry with his club and Harry says, "Do something." We next see Ron looking around. Before Ron says, "What," the item on the hook disappears. The item reappears before Ron casts his "wingardium Leviosa" spell.

- During the entire movie, you notice Hedwig is a snowy owl that does not really have a lot of black on her. While that tends to make 'her' more appealing, it means that Hedwig is actually a male, even though it is stated numerous times in the film that she is, in fact, a girl. The same goes for the second movie, and I suppose for the rest of the series.

- In the scene where Harry and Ron have just rushed into McGonagall's classroom, she transfigures from a cat on her desk to herself, walking towards them. In the first shot, we see the left side of her face, and she is not wearing glasses. When the shot changes so that she's facing Harry and Ron and we see the right side of her face, her glasses have appeared out of nowhere.

- In the scene with the flying letters, the way they enter both the living room and the corridor is simply screwed up. They start off shooting horizontally, going slightly up, but a few seconds later, they are obviously just being dropped from the ceiling. This is even more obvious in the shot of Mr Dursley trying to get the letter off Harry, where it shows the letters coming out the door at a very fast speed, then floating down about a metre away.

- In the scene where Harry and Ron come running down the hallway and see the troll for the first time, you can see a floodlight at the top of the frame illuminating the area where they stop and hide.

- When Harry finally opens his letter in the sea hut scene, you can see in the top left corner of the letter that it is addressed to him in Little Whinging, Surrey (where the Dursleys' house is). However, magical letters are always addressed to exactly where the person is (the letter should have been addressed to him at the sea hut).

- In the scene with Harry and Voldemort, when Harry puts his hands on Quirrel's face and pushes him against the wall, you can see the wall behind Quirrel is flat, in the next shot there are two large holes in the wall and in the next shot the wall is flat again.

- In the scene where Harry and Ron are in the room with the mirror which shows people's fantasies, Harry talks to his parents. We see shots of his face as Harry says something. Whichever parent he's speaking to he's always looking to the wrong side. [We are looking at Harry's reflection - he is looking the right way for each parent.]

- When Harry and Ron are on the train to Hogwarts, we see a shot of the sweets Harry has bought. Note the position of Harry's sweatshirt and that the collar shows no defects. A couple of shots later, the sweatshirt appears to have moved and more of his left neck is showing. A few shots later, when Hermione arrives, there is another shot of the sweets arranged very differently. When Hermione points her wand at Harry, there is a small tear in his sweatshirt collar. Submitted by steve

- When Harry, Ron and Hermione are running to Hagrid's hut to tell him they know about the stone (just before they see Norbert) Hermione's hair is very long, but by the time they get inside his hut and take off their cloaks, her hair is much shorter.

- When Dudley is told ho many presents he has, and he asks "How many are there?" a cut to him shows that his fringe is a bit untidy. Scene cuts to his Dad. When it cuts back to Dudley, his fringe is much neater. Submitted by steve

- When Ron first hits the floor after being knocked off the chess horse, his eyes are open. He quickly shuts them, but it's pretty obvious.

- Malfoy has one tooth that is notably crooked. If you watch carefully, you'll see that it changes sides throughout the film.

- In the scene where Hermione is coming out of the bathroom stall her head is down and you can see that the part in her hair is crooked, but when she is under the sink you can see that now her part is straight.

- When Harry and Hagrid arrive in London and are speaking about what Harry needs to buy, the shot of them walking towards the camera has a block of three shops on their right. I cannot make out what the first one they pass is. The second is a cafe, and has the street no. 35 above it. The one nearest to the camera is a fruiterer/greengrocer ? numbered 33. Hagrid and Harry pass the first shop, and are outside the café. The shot cuts to Hagrid and he passes buildings with the numbers 45 and 44 on them (strange if the odd numbers are on the other side of the street). His head is just about to pass the no. 44 (maybe two steps more and he would pass it). We then cut back to Harry, who is walking past a wine shop ? not one of the three shops above. When we cut back to the shot of Hagrid, (after he has taken a few steps from the previous shot of him) his head is just about to pass the 44.

- The very first scene where you see Hagrid on his motorcycle, he comes down and, from his position, you can tell he's gonna land way past the first house on the set. The next shot you see him touch down in front of that house.
