Holly's hair has a big gap in her front bangs when she says her one line, whereas before her bangs were intact. Holly Gilliam did this on purpose in an effort to avoid working on the scene again because she despised the process of filming. It didn't work, and the result is the continuity error.

When Sam falls over Jill's truck's hood, she walks around and sees his right foot hanging on top of the grille over the truck's fog/turn lights. But when the angle reverses to show her, his foot is resting on the bumper, in front of the grille.

When the inept Mr. Kurtzman (Ian Holm) is trying to find information about Buttle/Tuttle on his computer, he removes his glasses and sets them on his desk. He then punches a key to spy on his workers. A shot of the employees shows they are watching movies rather than tending to their work. The next shot shows Kurtzman with his glasses back on his face as he angrily takes them off again.

Factual errors 

When Sam Lowry is overwhelmed by the incoming cylinders coming through the pneumatic tubes, he connects the "incoming" pipe to the "outgoing" pipe with a short U-shaped hose. The bend in the hose is far too sharp a turn for any of the cylinders to make it to the "outgoing" pipe.

When Sam is in Helpmann's office looking at the printer, pre-printed text can clearly be seen on the feeder roll.

When Sam enters his apartment after the Central Services had frozen it, his shoulders bump into some "ice" that is hanging from pipes. You can clearly see that the "ice" is made out of rubber.
