A Cinderella Story

Continuity mistake: When Austin is typing to Sam from his bedroom, the very first book on the shelf in the background keeps changing, over and over again. This occurs near the start, when they are still unknown to each other, and also when he tries to write to her after the pep rally incident.

A Cinderella Story mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Carter is splashed as the twins jump into the pool, only one side of his head/hair is wet. In the next shot, all of his hair is wet.

Visible crew/equipment: At the pool, when Sam brings the salmon plate to Fiona, just as she rushes down the stairs, the shadow of the boom mic and pole is seen moving from right to left, along the grass.

Continuity mistake: When Sam is sitting on the friendship circle you can see that her legs are crossed the entire time. When she texts Austin you see her legs and they are not crossed. In the shots before and after this one her legs are crossed.

Continuity mistake: At Rhonda's house, when Sam says, "You sure do have a knack for taking something simple and making it beautiful," the red bowl is beside her. After Rhonda shows Sam the white gown, the camera pans back toward the table top and the lace mask suddenly and deliberately appears and is leaning against the bowl.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie when the younger version of Sam is blowing out her candles, the amount of ice cream in the cup next to her changes within seconds.

Continuity mistake: When Sam is taking batting practice during school, she hits a ball at Carter's feet. If you look at the way she hits the ball, she pops it up. Then the very next pitch she check swings and crushes the ball to Austin Ames.

Continuity mistake: When Austin is putting up the "Have you seen Cinderella?" fliers, in one shot he puts up the second flier on the blue door on the lower left side of another flier, but in the following shots, the flier is near the center, then to the right, and then back near the center again.

Plot hole: When texting Sam at the Friendship Circle, notice that Austin's cell phone is locked. Yet he can still open Sam's text messages.

Visible crew/equipment: As Sam and Rhonda have Fiona's car confiscated, when Fiona runs out shouting, "I can pay for those parking tickets!" the crew's black mat is laid out on the walkway, but in the overhead shot when she tries to run away that mat is gone. (Visible on fullscreen DVD.)

Visible crew/equipment: When David and Ryan force Austin to sit on the bench and meet the bachelorettes (with 'Dating Game' music playing), the white actor's mark is visible on the ground before Austin covers it with his foot. Also, when David introduces bachelorette 1, then bachelorette 3 and after Mrs. Wells says hi to Ryan, the green actor's T-mark is visible at David's feet. (Visible on fullscreen DVD.)

Visible crew/equipment: When Austin is putting up the Cinderella fliers at school, in the first shot as he, David and Ryan walk forward, the blue actor's mark is visible on the floor behind Ryan, where he and David were just standing. (Visible on fullscreen DVD.)

Continuity mistake: When Fiona picks up the twins at the dance, the rearview mirror on Fiona's Jag disappears on the way back to the diner, but reappears when she pulls into the diner parking lot, then it disappears again.

Continuity mistake: At the start of the pep rally, Mr. Ames takes a seat behind Austin in the close-up. Next shot facing the crowd, when Coach steps up to the stage, Austin's father is gone - his seat is empty, but a couple of shots later Mr. Ames is still there. Additionally, Sam and Carter are also gone in the crowd shot.

Continuity mistake: During Sam and Austin's dancing outdoors, Sam's hand shifts. In one shot it is completely over his shoulder and in the next shot it is on his shoulder. We see her hand the entire time so there is no time for her to move it without seeing it.

Visible crew/equipment: As Austin is putting up the Cinderella fliers at school, David tells Austin that he listens to him but promptly gets distracted by a girl. At the start of the next shot, as the girl walks forward the red actor's mark is visible on the floor behind her, where she was standing until she got her cue. (Visible on fullscreen DVD.)

Visible crew/equipment: At the start of the first scene in the diner, just as we hear Sam begin to say, "At Hal's, everyone felt like family," the actor's green T-mark is visible on the floor, where Eleanor was just standing. (Visible on fullscreen DVD.)

Visible crew/equipment: During the football game, in his close-up when Austin shouts before the hike, "Down, set 28 guarding..." the large white reflector screen is reflected on his helmet.

Continuity mistake: When Austin is putting up the Cinderella fliers with Ryan and David, his hair is considerably shorter than the following shots, such as when he goes to the diner and talks to Sam at the counter.

Factual error: Toward the end of the movie just as Austin and his team start the football game, the camera shows the scoreboard counting down from 15:00 minutes, the problem with this is high school football games are played in 12:00 minute quarters not 15:00.

Sam: Waiting for you is like waiting for rain in this drought, useless and disappointing!



The directors had Sam wear a lot of blue throughout the movie to standout and show she stood apart from everyone else. They tried to get all the other actors and extras to wear as little blue as possible. If you pay attention, Sam is often wearing blue and all the teenagers in the background wear jeans a lot less than you would probably see at a high school.
