Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Gru grabs Edith while trying to get the girls to sleep, Agnes is shown hopping on her bed while she laughs out loud, the sound of her laughter continues to play briefly even after she stops laughing.


When Gru is laying down the rules for the girls after being adopted, the clock on the stove goes from 12:10 to 12:11 and back to 12:10 again.
There are boys seen living in Miss Hattie's Home For Girls.
When Phil the Minion is drinking the soda in the Supermarket, he shakes the bottle making liquid fly out the top, but it never comes back down.
During the roller coaster scene, the cart which Gru rides in has a safety bar before he gets on, but it's missing when he gets off.
When the pyramid is falling down, the tourists that were standing in front of it disappear.
During the slo-mo scene of the ping pong ball leaving Agnes' gun, Edith's gun is still shooting and recoiling, but no balls are leaving the gun.
When Gru was asking for money in the bank, Mr. Perkins' apple switches from left to right (when he squeezes it at Gru).
When Agnes first asks Gru to read a bedtime story, the picture on the book she is holding switches from the back cover to the front.
After Gru punches the shark, and as Vector takes off, we get an aerial shot of the area and Gru is in a solid circle wall, apart from the entrance gate. The pyramid is outside of the wall, with the only way to reach it being to go through the gateway and round. Moments later, Gru runs towards it crossing the island but would have had to cross the wall before running straight up the pyramid.

Factual errors 

When the Times Square JumboTron is scrolling its message, the lettering appears damaged as it scrolls and maintains the same damaged/inconsistent state throughout the screen width. As a JumboTron is composed of stationary lights, a burnt bulb will cause the characters to be whole/correct as they clear the burnt area. The damage should be stationary and not scroll with the letter.

Revealing mistakes 

When Gru is reading the story about the Three Little Kitties, he turns the pages while keeping his fingers inside of the puppets. This would be impossible because of the way the holes in the other pages line up with his fingers as he turns them.


The goof items below may give away important plot points.


When Agnes, Margo, Edith and Gru climb onto the platform during the dance scene at the end of the movie, Agnes is wearing white tights. When they are on the platform raised in sky she is not.

Factual errors 

After the moon is restored, it is full. So when Vector is shown on the moon, the Earth should be "new", in other words, unlit instead of half-lit.
