Goofs

Continuity 

As the posse runs through Bronson Cave, after the policeman stops on the planks, says his lines, and then runs ahead, look closely for the man in the white shirt: it looks like he fell down onto the planks before the shot ended.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

After Miles and Becky disable Jack, Dr. Kaufman and the police officer, Miles says, "Our only hope is to make it to the highway." This line has been dubbed in, and doesn't entirely don't match his lip movements.

Continuity 

Near the end of the movie, a character falls asleep for an instant and wakes up as a "pod person." This contradicts the entire premise of the rest of the movie, in which humans are physically being replaced by "pod person" duplicates.
When Miles is carrying the sleeping Becky from her house to his car, her right arm is hanging limp on the way down the stairs and her left arm is holding Miles. But in the next shot at the front door her body position is changed, with her right arm around Miles shoulder and left arm hanging limp.

Plot holes 

Upon discovering two pods in the trunk of his car after visiting the gas station, the hero pulls them from the trunk and sets them on fire with a highway flare whereupon they burst into flame. Nowhere else in the film is there any suggestion that these pods are flammable nor would they be if germinating into a human replica.

Revealing mistakes 

The morning after Dr. Bennell brings Becky to his house, she makes breakfast for him. She asks if he wants his eggs boiled for 2 minutes. Then they hear a noise which is the gasman in the basement, and talk to him. She then runs back exclaiming "They'll be hard boiled!". But they've only been in the water for 34 seconds. What she then serves would essentially be raw eggs.

After Jack Belicec cuts his hand, he and Dr. Bennell are talking next to the pool table. Dr. Bennell states that Becky's cousin (Wilma Lentz) thinks her "uncle and her aunt are not her uncle and her aunt". However Wilma's suspicion only concerned her uncle Ira. Her aunt was never mentioned.

When Miles takes Becky home after visiting the Belicecs, she turns on the lights as they enter the house. When Miles turns off the lights, they go out just before his hand reaches the switch.
