The Parent Trap

Revealing mistake: When Hallie trashes Annie's cabin and the huge water balloon is about to fall on Annie's head, the camera is at a downward view and Annie clearly steps into the trail of the balloon instead of jumping away.

Revealing mistake: When Hallie is about to pierce Annie's ear, Annie puts the apple underneath her earlobe and Hallie puts the needle in - you can clearly see that Annie's ear already has a hole in it.

Continuity mistake: When Dennis Quaid sees Elizabeth and falls in the pool, its broad daylight, but when she helps him and they're sitting down, its twilight and there are a lot of lights on, but when they see his fiancée they stand up and it's broad daylight again.

Continuity mistake: When Hallie and Annie are in the isolation cabin, you see the bucket that the water is dripping into from the leak in the roof, on a stack of books. After the wind blows all of Hallie's pictures off the wall they are sitting on the ground picking them up, Annie is seen picking up Hallie's little animal (Cuppie) right next to the bucket of water, which is now on the ground with no stack of books to be seen.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Annie playing Hallie is being introduced to Meredith by the pool, it shows Nick wearing sunglasses, but in the next shot of him he is not.

Continuity mistake: When Hallie wants to get a popsicle/lemonade, her hair bobble is green, but in the next shot it is white and then changes back to green again.

Continuity mistake: When Annie and Hallie get out of the water bin after their fence match, the water stain on Hallie's vest changes patterns.

Revealing mistake: When Annie has to jump in the lake "butt naked," she's standing on the dock, and at one point she has noticeably pierced ears. But Annie (the Londoner) is the one who didn't have pierced ears until after the girls discovered their twinness.

Continuity mistake: In the opening scenes when you see the limo pulling up to let Annie and Martin out you see the pavement to the right of the limo has a lot of sunlight on it. When they get out and are standing on the pavement, the sunlight is gone.

Continuity mistake: When Annie got hit by the huge water balloon, she got herself drenched from head to toe. But in the next scene when both the camp leaders, as well as Hallie, were inside the bunk with her, Annie was completely dry.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Nicky and Annie are talking about him getting married, Annie's cowboy hat on the couch at her left changes position a few times.

Revealing mistake: When Meredith meets Nick and Elizabeth at the pool, Hallie comes up on her left and says, 'Hi, Mer.' Then Annie comes up on her right and says, 'How's it going?' Meredith shrieks as she looks from one girl to the other and you can tell that Annie is not really there, because Meredith is looking over her head rather than directly at her face, which she does with Hallie.

Continuity mistake: When Annie and her friends are approaching the area where the fencing is taking place, all three girls are holding tennis rackets. The shot switches to the camp counselor and back to the girls. The African American girl is no longer holding a tennis racket. The shot goes back to the counselor and then to the girls again, where all three have a tennis racket again.

Continuity mistake: When you see the limo driver taking out Annie's luggage, the limo is right next to the luggage, but when Martin is about to leave you see the limo much further away from the luggage.

Revealing mistake: After the two girls are finished playing poker in the cabin and Annie lost and had to jump in the lake naked, you can see the outline of the bathing suit she is wearing.

Factual error: If you have ever actually seen London then you can see that the route Hallie takes to get to the house would take you all around London.

Continuity mistake: When the twins are standing on the steps of the isolation cabin, talking about their familes, Hallie, one time is not looking at Annie - her eye-line for the special effect is off.

Continuity mistake: When Hallie and her mom are having tea, you can see a watch on the mom's wrist. After Martin hands Cuppy to Hallie, in the next shot of her mom, there is no watch.

Continuity mistake: When everyone is saying their good-byes at camp, Hallie (as Annie) takes the passport and the small carry-on and turns to get in the limo. The shot switches so you can see the limo, and Hallie (as Annie) is holding the carry-on in the other hand.
