Revealing mistake: When Mia is playing softball in gym class, and the ball she hits at Josh hits him in the groin, he actually gets hit in the stomach.

Cubs Fan

Continuity mistake: When Mia is going to see Michael about her "baby", the band finishes and the main singer walks off, followed by two girls carrying equipment. In the next shot, the guy is standing back where they performed, having just finished singing, talking to the girls.

Continuity mistake: When Mia at the end hits the ball and it hits Josh, there are two shots in which he is kneeled over in pain with the ball nowhere in sight. then, as she jumps over him, the ball suddenly appears a foot away from him.

Continuity mistake: Right at the start of the movie, when Mia is shown opening her window blinds, there are some books on a shelf to the left. The lowermost is Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice", which her grandmother will first give her much later in the movie, together with a rather large book ("The Vanderbilt Complete Book of Etiquette"), in which Mia has already been reading in the immediately preceding scene.

Other mistake: At the end of the movie, when Mia is observing her new palace, the Genovian flag is fluttering on its top. But as the plane circles, the angle of the flag should change, but it doesn't. Obviously a CGI error.

Continuity mistake: When Mia and Michael are talking and Michael asks Mia to come and see his band, keep your eye on the background. You see Lily running to catch up with them and she passes in between two people and doesn't even look at them, then in the next shot she passes them again, points at the boy who has stepped to the side and says "Not you, I don't even know you."

Continuity mistake: When Josh is finished making his speech, everyone starts cheering; you can see in the background the guy banging on the drum is beating it much faster than he is when the camera gets a close-up of him.

Continuity mistake: When Mia says "I bet it goes with anything" when she is looking at Lana's cheerleading outfit, you can see that she is holding her ice cream with both hands, but in the next shot she is holding her ice cream with only one hand.

Audio problem: When Fontana says "He's such a show-off" to her friends Lana and Anna at the beginning of the movie, her mouth doesn't move.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning when the princess girl is taking to trash out she hits her neighbors trashcan. You can see an R from the neighbors side view and then they cut to a further shot and the trashcan is turned opposite because the name is on the other side.


Continuity mistake: When Mia is eating her grapes during the dinner sequence, the grapes are red, but when we see a close-up of her using her knife and fork to cut the grapes, some of them have changed to a green color.

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning of the film, when they show the 'Mia and Fat Louis' sign, the blinds are opened by a hand near the top. When they show Mia inside, she opens the blind near the middle again.

Continuity mistake: During the entire movie, Mia's eyebrows go from bushy to already been plucked and waxed. Even in the scenes where she hadn't had the makeover yet.

Other mistake: Before Mia bends over and breaks the finger off the statue, you can clearly see that the finger is just dangling on the statue in the first place.

Continuity mistake: When Mia and her friend are riding their go-peds at the beginning of the movie, they leave with jackets, they go up the hill with no jackets on, then, when they arrive at school, their jackets are on again.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie Mia slides down the pole to get to the main floor. The next shot is her mom coming down a ladder to the ground floor talking to Mia, but you can see the top of Mia's head in the foreground as she walks down the staircase. Supposedly she's already on the ground floor via the pole.

Continuity mistake: Mia is eating an ice cream cone in the canteen with something brown on the top. Later, when she smashes it into Lana's shirt, there are rainbow "hundreds and thousands" on it.
