Character error 

In the first battle scene with Doc Ock fighting Spider-Man, Spider-Man, who has strength proportionate to a spider, hits Ock plenty of times, not only with his fists, webs, and feet, but with a desk and a window, too. All of these times Ock barely flinches with the blows. And yet, at the end of this scene, the elderly Aunt May clubs Ock over the head with an umbrella hard enough not only to make him back off but to break his sun glasses which were previously unscratched.
When Peter is in the Pizzeria, his boss tells him to deliver the "deep dish pizzas". Later on when the pizzas are on the balcony, and the box is opened, they are revealed to be thin crust.
Ursula asks Peter if he wants a piece of chocolate cake; however, in the next shot you see Peter finishing off a white sponge cake.

When Harry talks about Dr. Octavius' chances at winning the Nobel Peace Prize, he walks out of the scene saying, "See you in Sweden!" Although the Nobel is named after a Swedish man, the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony is held in Oslo, Norway. An easy mistake to make.

When Peter Parker arrives at the theater playhouse to see Mary Jane's play, he is driving the car of the criminals whom he had just bagged as Spider-man. In the first wide shot, the car's windshield is intact. However, the subsequent shots show the windshield ripped off at its base. This is because the preceding chase sequence originally included the car driving underneath a semi-truck, but once that part was cut, CGI artists went in and replaced the windshield for the establishing shot.

During the car chase, the criminal in the passenger seat first fires a shotgun at the police, and then when he notices Spider-Man, he pumps the action, but begins to fire some form of fully automatic weapon (a shotgun is not an automatic). In the next shot of the car, he is still holding the shotgun, but continues to fire it like an automatic.

When Octavius and Spider-Man are fighting on the train, Octavius throws him forward through a bridge and Spider-Man subsequently lands on top of him. This is physically impossible unless the train sped up fast enough to match Peter's speed in that time frame which is very unlikely, or Peter was somehow able to slow himself down whilst airborne, which also seems unlikely.

The runaway train is shown to be an 'R' train, and is shown to have blinker doors. In the real subway system, the 'R' is unique in that it is totally underground, except for a short stretch in Brooklyn when it crosses the LIRR Bay Ridge Branch. Also, the 'R' uses R46 subway cars (and some R160s), both of which have sliding doors instead of blinker doors.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

In the train fight sequence, the train says Bay Ridge in the destination window on the front of the train. On real subway cars, there are no destination signs on the cab ends of the cars: only a letter or number rollsign or LED display is present. The only destination signs in the trains are on the sides of the cars. Historically, however, there has been New York City Subway rolling stock that has been equipped with end destination signs (like the Redbird trains used on the IRT until 2003, and the R32 and R38 cars prior to being retrofitted with flipdot signs in the 1990s). Despite this, no rolling stock has been built for the subway with blinker doors. All stock has been constructed with sliding doors. However, this is a fictional route created for the movie (see Trivia), and it might not necessarily be tied in with the real subway system.

Plot holes 

Peter asks Harry where Doctor Octopus has taken the kidnapped Mary-Jane. How would he know where his lair is?
Parts of the lower side of the construction in which Doc Ock has set up his second experiment are also made of metal. This means that when the experiment fails again, the base of the building would be sucked into the tritium sphere as well. This in turn would cause the structure to collapse so that the sphere would fall into the river.

Right after Spidey says "even our dreams", the three "claws" on the tentacle close, and you can see the tip of the bottom "claw" pass through the tip of one of the other claws, revealing a blunder in the rendering of the digital effect. (This is visible in the DVD release of the theatrical cut of the film.

However, when Dr. Octopus delivers a bound and unconscious Spider-Man to Harry Osborn in the next scene, Spider-man's mask is undamaged.
