When Dre turns on the TV, the introduction to SpongeBob SquarePants (1999) is on. However, the video is halfway through the introduction, but the audio is near the end of the Spongebob Squarepants theme.
When Dre watches the woman charming a cobra on the mountain, he first watches from behind a window with its bars all in place and parallel. Then he walks farther up the hall and peers out a second window that has one bar bent out of place, allowing him to peek his head farther out for a better view. He has his head out this second window when Han calls him, but in the next shot he's behind the first window again as he responds to the call.
Errors in geography
During the celebration of winning the first rounds of the tournament, a photographer is seen taking pictures from very close range; under one meter. His camera is sporting a telephoto lens, which usually have a minimal macro distance of 1.2 to 1.4 meters. There is no way the photographer could have been taking clear pictures.
Incorrectly regarded as goofs
The plane shown taking off to take the Parkers to China is different from the one shown landing in China. The planes shown have different registration numbers which are seen on the fuselages (specifically B-2460 and B-2443). However there is no explicit statement that the plane we are looking at is "their" plane, just that it's an Air China plane taking off / landing.
The Qixi Festival that Dre attends with his mom and Mr. Han falls on the seventh day of the seventh month of the lunar calendar. Though the exact date in our modern calendar varies from year to year, it is usually sometime in August. However, a few scenes after this festival, Mr. Han says the date is June 8th. This is not possible unless 11 months had passed in those few scenes.
