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.

Continuity 

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.
There are boys seen living in Miss Hattie's Home For Girls.
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.
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.
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.
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.

When Gru was asking for money in the bank, Mr. Perkins' apple switches from left to right (when he squeezes it at Gru).
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.

When Gru returns home from stealing coffee and a pastry from a coffee shop, he gets out of his vehicle and speaks with his neighbor. His hands are empty as he talks, and he immediately steps toward his house after the conversation. The pastry appears inside his house in the next scene where Gru is sitting in his living room.

There are two minions named Kevin. A two eyed Kevin appears in the movie Minions. One eyed Kevin appears when he returns back to normal size after being shrunk by the shrink ray and another minion yells "Kevin!" and starts hugging him.

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.
Gru is shown arriving at the moon in only a few minutes time after taking off, and again taking only a few minutes to return to earth. In reality it takes about 3-4 days to reach the moon.

Plot holes 

When Mr. Perkins of the Evil Bank shows Victor Perkins (Vector) the screen capture from his video conference with Gru, the shot that he displays never happened. It displays the Shrink Ray and all three girls at the bottom of the image with Gru. During the actual scene, the only person in the screen with the Shrink Ray present is Gru. Additionally Edith is the only daughter whom we ever see come into view on Mr. Perkins' screen.

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.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

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.
