Goofs

Character error 

Perhaps this can be forgiven in such a whimsical comedy, but whenever M. Arpel parks his car in his tiny home garage, he always pulls in front-end first; however, whenever he leaves for work in the morning, the car always exits the garage front-end first. (Possibly a subtle sight gag on Tati's part?)

When Hulot holds the wire drink holder at the dinner garden party, it is at first closest to his left knee, but in the next cut, closer to his right.

Twice in the film, when Hulot gets home, he opens the windows, where he closes the right and leaves the left ajar, but in the following cuts it is the opposite. Possibly intentional?

When M Arpal and his son are about to get into the car in the last few minutes of the film the clock on the factory reads 3.42. As they drive off it's 4.45.

Crew or equipment visible 

During the garden party, when Pichard has just fixed the fountain and Hulot and Gerard are hanging from the round windows, a man in black clothes can clearly be seen walking on the roof of the house.

Revealing mistakes 

When the boys are playing their traffic prank, one of their victims steps out of a 1955 Pontiac Chieftain. In the next cut, as he goes to argue with the woman he thinks has rear-ended him, the Pontiac is replaced by the 1951 Oldsmobile 88 driven by Charles Arpel near the start of the film (and which he is still driving at this point). Even the license plate (523 AP 75) is the same.

When Hulot rides his bicycle through the puddle and splashes water on a man, the water sprays from a hose hidden in the puddle and is not caused by Hulot's bicycle.
