Mamma Mia!

Continuity mistake: In the shot in the bathroom, Tanya has a small diamond necklace but in the next shot in the bedroom the diamond appears larger.

Continuity mistake: When Sophie is finally dressed for her wedding, the gauzey material is predominately over her right shoulder/breast. Next shot it is over her left. When she gets on the donkey, it is completely off her right side and her bra shows.

Visible crew/equipment: When Donna is telling Tanya about Sophie's dad arriving, stage lights can be seen in Donna's glass.

Continuity mistake: Soon after arriving, Tanya and Rosie are at a bar and suddenly Donna comes out in tears. Tanya is just receiving a cocktail from Pepper, the bartender. Rosie and Tanya then hurry after Donna - and during the rest of this scene, the amount of drink in Tanya's cocktail keeps lowering then rising.

Visible crew/equipment: When singing Dancing Queen an extra is seen falling off a ladder. If you look at the front of his shirt, a safety cable can be seen.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: Just before the song "Does Your Mother Know" on the beach, the items on the bar change their position during the scene, from shot to shot. For instance, the bucket of ice, Tanya's bag and drink, etc.

Continuity mistake: During 'Winner Takes it All', at the start of the song, Donna has her hands up near her chest, in the next shot they are down by her side.

Continuity mistake: During the song "Lay All Your Love on Me" on the beach when Sky is on top of Sophie, you can see that Sophie has a pair of black trousers on.

Continuity mistake: In the Super Trouper scene, when we see Donna, Tanya and Rosie raising their left hands, we see that Rosie is just behind Donna's sleeve. However, in the next shot, in which we only see Donna, we can't see Rosie or her shadow at all.

Continuity mistake: When they are singing Does Your Mother Know You're Out, a man is seen getting out of water and then lying in the sand. When he stands up no sand sticks to him, which it should.

Factual error: When you first see Sam he is supposed to be in America, but when you see out of the window as he is leaving, you can see the Gherkin building in London. He is actually in the Lloyd's Building, but to add to the illusion of being in America, he is picked up by a Yellow Cab.

Continuity mistake: When Tanya and Rosie arrive at the island, they get off the boat and walk up the pier. They break into song with Donna (who is walking towards them) but as the shot keeps changing, the two old men standing on the pier disappear and re-appear every time the camera changes.

Continuity mistake: During the wedding scene, all three of Sophie's possible fathers stand up and gather behind her on the aisle. In one closeup shot Sophie turns around to say something to Sam - in this shot the right part of her hair is behind her right shoulder. In the next shot as she is turning around back to face the priest, her hair is suddenly neatly in front of her right shoulder.

Continuity mistake: When Donna is dancing to "Dancing Queen," her hair is all messed up. But in the next shot, her hair is not messed up.

Continuity mistake: During Dancing Queen Donna is jumping on the bed. Between the camera angles, her position keeps changing.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: When Sam and Harry get out of their separate taxis near the start, there is a huge amount of rope on the harbour. Camera cuts and it's now disappeared and is not trailing from the boat.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: During "The Winner Takes It All," you first see the cliff with the church and the sun very low on the horizon. Later during the scene, the sun is much further to the right and higher in the sky (the sun glare on the water is bright white). The scene was apparently filmed in the morning (and not in the evening) and we see a sunrise and not a sunset.

Continuity mistake: At the end of Voulez Vous, the people pick up Sophie. In one shot her hair falls down to her shoulders, camera cuts and it falls back down again.

A Demon

Other mistake: When Harry Bright and Sam Carmichael are standing on the dock in Greece after missing the boat, Harry pulls out his invitation and references the wedding in the invitation, but the envelope is sealed.

Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the Money Money Money song there is a scene where Donna, Rosie and Tanya are sitting in the Captain's deck. If you look at Rosie you will see she is looking through binoculars. Look closely and you'll see that the lens caps are still on.

Continuity mistake: During "Dancing Queen", Donna hides her face in the pillow while looking at Rosie and Tanya singing. On the right side of the bed where Donna is lying is a red table lamp, a glass cup and some stuff on the table. During the chorus, Donna jumps on the bed, and in the jumping shot, the table lamp and everything else on the table is covered with a white cloth with a red pattern.

Continuity mistake: When Meryl Streep closes the bedroom door in the scene right before "Dancing Queen", you see Julie Walters' reflection in the mirror next to her, hands on her hips. In the next shot Streep turns to face Walthers, who now suddenly hasn't got her hands on her hips anymore.

Continuity mistake: When singing Mama Mia the first time, the position of the mum's arms are constantly changing between shots.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: When Sky is on the beach with Sophie, his arms are constantly changing place depending on the shot. This is not due to dancing.

A Demon

Audio problem: Sophie and his boyfriend sing at the beach, he says he likes to smoke and pronounces the word "true" with the camera facing him. Right afterwards there's a side shot and music is heard with no lyrics, yet he is mouthing as if singing. Then back to a front shot and now he sings and mouths.

Continuity mistake: During the last half of the movie Donna wears a red sweeping shawl over her shoulders, with her outfit for Sophie's wedding. Many times the position of the shawl is not consistent during shots - most noticeable after she walks Sophie down the aisle, then sits down.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: During "Money, Money, Money" Donna walks into the kitchen and all the staff are sitting at the table. They hurriedly get up and start working, and a newspaper is left right beside the large fish on the table. When the shot goes back with the table visible, the newspaper has gone.

Continuity mistake: When Rosie and Tanya follow Donna into the bathroom, during the "Chiquitita" scene the flower pot on the windowsill moves back and forth from the left side to the right side.

Continuity mistake: When Sam and Harry's taxis arrive at the pier, the sunlight casting on the pavement changes dramatically between shots.

Sacha

Visible crew/equipment: When Donna's friends singing to Dancing Queen you can see a crew member reflected on the hairdryer.
