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 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: 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 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: 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: 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.

Continuity mistake: When Mia is leaving right after she starts dance lessons with Joe, you see her running out of the shot and in the next shot she already has her backpack on. It seems impossible for her to have grabbed it and put it on while continually running in such a little time span.

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.

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: Kinda near the start of the film when the cheerleaders are sitting with their boyfriends they had already sat down, then it shows the back of them when Mia is walking past, and they are just about to sit down.

Continuity mistake: When Mia is at the car shop with her "baby" and the repair man tells her the estimate, her hand slips onto the horn and it honks. The next shot her hand is on the door, not even close to the horn, and she obviously didn't move it at all.

Continuity mistake: When Mia and Queen Clarisse are careening down the hill in Mia's Mustang, you see she hits the trolley on the green part and puts a HUGE dent in the side of it. Later in a different shot, you see the trolley and the green part has no dent, and the car is much to low to have hit the trolley in the green part in the first place.
