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. See more...

Visible crew/equipment: Just before Sam and Carter show up at the pool for Carter's Zorro reveal, when Shelby, Caitlin and Madison are walking towards the camera as Caitlin says, "He was so mysterious, but really obvious...," the shadow of the crew's equipment moves forward with the trio, on the ground behind Caitlin. (Visible on fullscreen DVD.)
Continuity: When Sam and Carter arrive at the pool, before Carter reveals himself to Shelby, the poolside gate and banner cast a shadow on the ground, to the right. After Carter is belittled and splashed, when he joins Sam the shadows cast are now longer and farther back. (Visible on fullscreen DVD.)
Continuity: After young Sam loses her father in the Northridge earthquake (noted in voiceover), she appears alone on the ball field, at home plate. In the close-up much of the area is in shadow around her, but in the next wideshot the entire area is in sunlight with only the fence/backstop casting thin shadows.
Revealing: After the dance, during the Mercedes vs. Jaguar "race" back to the diner, much of the entire scene takes place at the same intersection of Victory Blvd and Olive Ave, filmed from different angles. Note the Jiffy Lube and Enterprise (cars) on the corners, which are actually across the street from one another.
Visible crew/equipment: When David and Ryan force Austin to participate in the bachelorette 'Dating Game', the CD player sits on the bench beside Austin. When David introduces bachelorette 2, a yellow tape marker suddenly appears on the bench in front of the CD player, which promptly disappears in following shots. (Visible on fullscreen DVD.)
Continuity: At the start, when Sam is reading the text message from Austin stating "Where have u been? We haven't talked...", on the cell display there are two bars in the battery icon in this close-up, but as she replies "We talked this morning", the battery icon is empty in the semi close-up. Then, when she reads his reply in the close-up, once again there are two bars in the icon.
Continuity: At the dance Sam is wearing silver non-platform stilettos with silvery nail polish on her toenails. As soon as Fiona and the "Siamese" twins leave the diner, in the kitchen a much relieved Sam shifts her white gown and she is wearing white platforms and her toenail polish is quite gone now.
Continuity: When Austin is forced to sit on the bench to meet the bachelorettes, the large words "friendship circle" are above the bench. In the wideshots Austin sits in front of the "ship" part of the words and Ryan is in front of "circle", but in the close-ups Austin's in front of "friend" and Ryan's in front of "ship", about 2 ft to their right (viewer's left).
Visible crew/equipment: When Austin is putting up the Cinderella fliers at school, just as he tells David and Ryan, "The phone's locked. I keep getting messages like...," the red actor's mark is visible on the floor behind Austin and the white actor's T-mark is visible on the floor behind Ryan. (Visible on fullscreen DVD.)
