Anachronisms 

Florence uses the phrase "24-7", a saying that didn't come into use until the mid 1980s.

Factual errors 

Florence tells Lewis that the Brothers Grimm wrote Grimms' Fairy Tales in the Black Forest which is in Schwarzwald Germany. In reality they wrote the tales in Kassel Germany which at the time of the writing would have been a full day's travel away from the Black Forest.

Miscellaneous 

Jonathan's last name is Barnavelt, the same as Lewis. But it's revealed that Jonathan is Lewis' maternal uncle, so Jonathan should have Lewis' mother's maiden name as his last name, not Barnavelt.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Plot holes 

Jonathan and Florence are frustrated to discover their rivals have been resurrected and wonder who could have done it. But there are no other magic users in the film apart from Jonathan, Florence, their rivals, and Lewis. It shouldn't have been a mystery as to who did it through deductive reasoning and only a handful of magic users present.
