When Jessie walks to the car Max is repairing she is wearing sneakers. When she walks around to the passenger side of the car she has on boots with sheepskin trim. When she walks off to the beach she is wearing the deck shoes again.
When Max and Jessie first take off for their vacation, it's just the two of them (no baby). There's no baby anywhere when they're on the beach initially either. The baby first appears at the gas station, when Jessie tells Max that she's going to buy an ice cream cone.
When Max hears Jessie screaming when she's being chased by bikers in the woods, he grabs his rifle and runs towards here with no shoes on. In the next sequence, after Max takes a few steps towards the woods, he's wearing shoes.
When Max takes the black interceptor to hunt down the Toecutter and his gang, he first comes up behind them on a road with a dashed white lines in the center and the road is lined with trees on both sides. This continues for as far as the viewer's eyes can see. When he spins up the supercharger in the next scene to run down the bikers, the road has changed to one with no lines in the middle, is narrower, and has open fields on each side.
When Jesse and May are being chased in the station wagon, it quits running because of radiator failure due to a piece of the gate they drive through stuck in it. It can be seen when Jesse runs in front of the car. When Max runs by the car moments later, it is no longer visible in the radiator.
In the beginning of the movie, the camera pans toward Roop while he is sitting atop the concrete wall looking through the rifle scope, it can be seen that his left pants leg is cut/damaged above the knee. Next scene he is running toward the police car, there is no damage to the pants.
When Max is playing with the rubber mask to cheer up a "not grumpy" Jessie before he goes to see Goose, the baby (Sprog) in the background has different toys in his left hand each time we see him. When Max takes off the mask, Sprog has a brick, ball or similar object that he can clearly lift, and the plush toy is behind him, out of reach. When Max jumps onto the table, we see Sprog in close-up holding the barrel of Max's service revolver. Then after Jessie tells Max to "get out of here" Sprog now has the plush toy.
Max's shoes changes third time when he is running on the road to pick up Jessie.Early he was shoeless and then wearing black shoes as written in an above statement and again in this scene he is seen wearing another pair.
When the Night Rider's stolen black MFP car is approaching Max's interceptor, the shot from the Night Rider's point of view shows Max's stationary car close to being in the middle of the road, but in the opposing shots from close to Max's car it is parked halfway off the left side of the road.
The opening chase takes place around "Anarchy Road." In one of the film's first shots, we are shown a sign that says "Anarchie Road" is 3 km. away. However, once they arrive there the road sign the car crashes into is spelled "Anarchy."
When Goose is interrogating the stoned biker he turns around and says "Take your time Charlie, we've got plenty of it", when he turns you can see the feet of the camera operator reflected in his glasses. It cannot be the other policeman as he is in the other room.
Goose starts up his cold bike in the morning and immediately races a full throttle burnout. A carburetor engine of that time is rather delicate during its cold start phase, it could not deliver that performance, but rather choke and stall when operated full throttle.
Presumably the supercharger was switched off to save fuel, which would work because the engine would stall. The "blower" would not allow the fuel/air mixture to pass into the engine. The only way that the car would move under its own power would be if the compressor housing was fake and there was a carburetor hidden inside the housing.
After exiting the farmhouse looking for her son, Jessie encounters the motorcycle gang at the garage/barn of the farmhouse. However, the property is enclosed by a fence, and the gate to the driveway is locked. In addition, nobody heard the motorcycles drive up to the farmhouse. Yet, somehow, the gang was able to sneak onto the property with their motorcycles without anyone hearing their approach.
When the Holden Monaro that the Nightrider has stolen passes the camera, at close range in one scene, we can see that the exhaust tips of the car are actually just dangling on the car and aren't actually connected at all.
The van that pulls into Roop's path and is slammed by his patrol car simply exits the driveway and drives straight across towards the other side of the street, which is a grass verge without anywhere to go. It also does not have its indicator on, as quoted, and for some reason the driver fails to react to Night Rider speeding past ahead of the pursuit vehicles and the sirens, and does not give way to an emergency vehicle, blindly entering the road.
Just before Max rips the handbrake and pulls the steering wheel sharply to the right to put the V8 interceptor into a powerslide, the tachometer needle is clearly seen at zero. It wasn't broken as it was working fine seconds before when Max activated the supercharger.
The goof items below may give away important plot points.
At the end of the movie, when Max finds Johnny the Boy, he puts his shotgun to Johnny's head and we hear a gun being cocked. However, Max's shotgun has no external hammers and can't be thumb-cocked. (Max could be disengaging the safety, but there are two distinct clicks instead of one.)
When Max is shot in the leg at the end of the movie, he is still standing near his car, not even all the way across the road from it [say, six steps]. However, when he is shot, somehow he ends up a good distance diagonally up the road from his vehicle. In addition, he falls toward the gang member who shot him, as opposed to having fallen away from the gang member.
As Max chases down the Toecutter in a high-speed pursuit, the scene showing his demise is markedly different than the preceding shot. That is, they used a different location on the road for the crash shot. The truck was shown topping the hill then shown at the bottom , the road lines went from solid-double to single-dashed , the sides of the road changed from rocks and mounds of dirt to grass , the sky went from over-cast to sunny , and most notably the truck itself went from a normal front (lights, grill and body work) to having a flat false-front that had been painted to look like its a normal front (with lights, grill and body work).
