Character error 

The first time Stan recites the entire Boy Scout Oath, he misses the line "To obey the Scout Law". This line goes between the lines "To do my duty to God and my country" and "To help other people at all times".

Continuity 

It seems as if Mike was the last to join the seven back in the 1960s. The day Mike joins them was apparently several days after the other kids had encountered It. Out of the discussion about It, which takes place the day of the Rock Battle, we learn that every single kid in the gang has already seen It somewhere. However, later in the movie, Bev tells a story about the blood in her bathroom, and in the flashback, we see all of the 7 kids entering Bev's bathroom to clean the mess up, the day right after the blood had come out of the washbasin.

Factual errors 

When Richie sees his epitaph on a cinema billboard, it says he was born in 1950. The events of his childhood take place in 1960, making him ten years old, not twelve years old like he and the rest of the gang are supposed to be.
