Mean Girls

Continuity mistake: Cady breaks up her Spring Fling tiara that she receives. On stage, she breaks it up into many pieces and throws them out into the crowds; it is clear that the amount we see being thrown into the crowds is a major amount of pieces - almost too much from just one tiara. However then when she leaves the stage, we see her holding approximately half of the tiara still. This would not be possible from the aforementioned amount that Cady has already snapped off and thrown into the crowd.

Continuity mistake: When the Plastics are explaining to Cady the "rules" at lunch, an extra in a red shirt walks directly in front of the camera, and then a couple of seconds later, she walks in front of the camera again walking the same direction that she was walking the first time she passed the camera.

Continuity mistake: While the girls go wild in the hallway, the principal breaks the glass with a bat making the sprinklers come on. When he yells, "All junior girls report to the gymnasium immediately," in the following shots all their shirts are dry.

Continuity mistake: When Cady, Janice and Damian are in class talking about different things, like watching a movie, and Cady tells Janice she can't see her art show because she going to Madison etc., Cady is applying lip gloss. She holds a pocket mirror and in shots of the mirror you can see Cady holding the pink tube of lip gloss in the same hand, then when it cuts to wideshots, the tube isn't in her hand. The pink tube of lip gloss also has no lid on it, yet near the end of the scene a blue long lid appears on the pink tube.

Continuity mistake: When Cady is starting her first day of school and her parents are saying goodbye, she starts to walk up to the high school. Her dad starts to walk away while her mom stays standing there. In the next shot where it shows Cady's face, her mom and dad are still watching her together.

Continuity mistake: At Cady's party, when she is in her room with Aaron and she is sick, she is sick below his waistline ie, either on his pants or on the floor and not on his shirt. However in the next scene when he walks out of the house he is wiping sick off his shirt.

Continuity mistake: In the winter talent show scene, you see Gretchen go to kick the boom box in hopes of fixing the skipping CD, but when she kicks it you see it start to just fall off the stage. Yet in the next shot the CD player shoots forward and hits Gretchen's boyfriend, as if she had kicked it a lot harder than she actually did.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Santa comes in with the candy cane gram, as the camera cuts on and off of Cady, you will notice that her hands move from on top of her desk to in her lap a couple of times.

Continuity mistake: At the start of the film as Cady's Dad gives Cady her lunch bag, he has nothing round his neck. But in the next shot the camera is around his neck.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: In the wake of the candy-cane grams, Gretchen's arms change from above her shoulders to on the desk.

Phoenix

Continuity mistake: When we see the first shot of Regina throw a pile of Burn Book sheets to the floor, they fall and all spread out. Then she sticks a sheet about Trang Pak up and then in the next shot as she continues to walk, the sheets she first dropped behind her on the floor are all much closer together in a different position.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Cady enters the dance after the Mathletes competition, her sleeve is down past her arms and we cannot see her hand. In the next shot, the sleeve is rolled up and her hand is visible.

Continuity mistake: As Regina is about to write the things about herself in the Burn Book, as she flips to a new page we can briefly see the page about Miss Norbury on it, and it doesn't say "Ms Norbury is a pusher. A sad old drug pusher," but later on when Miss Norbury picks up a photocopied sheet of the same page, it does have the previous comments written in.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: In the Spring Fling scene, when Cady and Aaron are dancing, it alternates shots between Cady's face and Aaron's. Her arm is on his shoulder in one shot and the next shot it is on his arm. This happens a couple of times in the same section of that scene. Really obvious.

Continuity mistake: When Cady comes home from her first day her father sets down his book on the notepad on the desk as he sees her. In the next shot as she goes inside the book has moved back.

Phoenix

Continuity mistake: In the 'Jingle Bell Rock' scene, right after Gretchen kicks the stereo off the stage, you see her feet, and they are both symmetrical next to each other, then when you see her again one of her feet is behind the other. Gretchen does not move at all between shots.
