Mamma Mia!

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: 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.

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.

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: 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.

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: 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: 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.

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

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

Mamma Mia! mistake picture

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: 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.

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

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.

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.

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