When John and Jane have dinner at home, Jane serves a roast that John describes as "pot roast, my favorite." However, the slice of beef that ends up on his plate is medium rare. Pot roast is always thoroughly cooked and is therefore always served well-done.

The car from Jane (the Mercedes) is clearly damaged when she escapes the car while John is still in it, as it drives through some bushes. Most likely she lost the car. However, when Jane drives back from the restaurant to her house, she is back in her old car.

Towards the end of the film, the Smiths take "the Tank" to a motel to interrogate him. When the fleet of spies arrives, they bust down the motel room door, which has the number "49" visible on it. A few seconds later, though, the camera shows a row of doors that the Smiths have broken through to escape, and the number on the door adjacent to their room is "112".

After John figures out that it was Jane at the hit in the desert, there is a scene where he is speeding down their street, but he is not driving his black Cadillac, instead he is driving the Lincoln Towncar featured later on in the film as the "limo" he steals. In fact, the shot is almost identical to the one later on when he is racing Jane back to the house after the restaurant, right before she rams him. Also, in the same scene, when the car is coming towards the camera, the headlights are on, but once he turns into the driveway, the headlights are suddenly off.

Errors in geography 

Bogota is portrayed as a warm/hot city while in reality its located over the Andean cordilleras and has an average temperature of mid 60s all year long and has an altitude of 8530ft.
Towards the end of the movie, Mr. and Mrs. Smith are chased around at high speeds along highways in the greater New York City area. As they zip along one freeway, however, a sign appears on the side of the road. It reads: "Los Angeles City Limits".

Jane is reading a newspaper named "Prensa Colombiana", a weekly publication issued in Los Angeles by members of the Colombian community, but pretty much impossible to find anywhere in Colombia. These scenes are supposed to take place in Bogota, where a large variety of full sized daily newspapers are published by several editorial houses.

Factual errors 

When John and Jane are in the elevator in the shoot-out in the "Home made" mall, they each carry a HK MP5, and the cocking handles on both are clearly in the retracted 'up' position, as they are when being reloaded. In this position it is not possible to fire the weapon, which they both clearly do the very next second. If they *were* reloading, they clearly would not just stand waiting with the weapons as they do.

After the restaurant scene when John and Jane are driving their respective vehicles back to the house, John calls Jane and she reaches down to activate the hands-free system in her car, at which point the console is revealed, and while there is a beep, the screen is not on and there are no other lights on anywhere in the car, where there should definitely be some, hence indicating that the car is in fact not running. This is shown in multiple shots in which the console is clearly visible and clearly dark.

When John Smith is firing the Widowmaker missile at Jane, the targeting screen shows latitude and longitude coordinates that place him somewhere in Alaska. When John is trying to break into the prison to retrieve "The Tank," his shown coordinates place him 350 miles off the coast of Spain. Also, if you time John Smith's movement in the pipe, and compare it to the updated coordinates, he moves over 900 feet in 11 seconds, about 55 miles per hour. And when he is climbing the vertical pipe, his coordinates should remain steady. Also, the likelihood of receiving a GPS signal underground in a pipe is slim to none.

During the chase on the bridge, with Jane driving the mini-van, she presses the automatic hatch button causing it to open. However, for a vehicle to be able to use this capability, the van must be in park. Of course, since it opened during the chase and as they are spies, it is easy to believe that they made the doors/hatch operate even while driving.

When John races home the first time (in the wrong car mentioned in another goof), he slows as he turn into his driveway and the camera angle shows the car's instrument cluster. Not only is it the wrong cluster for the Lincoln Town Car he was just shown in; not only is it dark, indicating the headlights aren't on even though they were just shown to be on; but the only things visible in the cluster are the engine, brake and SRS lights, indicating that the engine is OFF.

John and Jane appear to break into the Kost Mart. Following this we see a wide shot showing the black SUVs approaching the Kost Mart, and across a parking lot driveway we see the Home Made building to the left. All the SUVs and assassins go to the right, towards the Kost Mart, and we see them searching that building. The team then finds the unlocked Kost Mart door and storms inside. During the shootout, based on the interior signage, all of a sudden everyone is inside the Home Made building.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

When John Smith shoots Lucky, in the first scene we actually see him with a target, he pushes his chair all the way back to shut the door with him still in it and shoots the men. When we get a frontal view of John Smith after he has shot the men, he's getting up out of the chair with it being all the way back up to the table. When did he get up and move the chair back up?
