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. (00:01:05 - 00:44:00)
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.
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. (00:35:10)
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. (00:01:50)
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.
Continuity mistake: During Mia's debate speech the "negative" sign on the podium goes from straight to crooked between shots.
Continuity mistake: When Josh finishes his debate speech, and the teacher tells him to change back into his uniform, watch Fontana. She goes from sitting casually to looking like she's enjoying the fact that he's taking off his shirt, and back to casual again. It's right when Lana is talking about how Josh is her man. Once Josh sits down, Fontana is looking at Josh in the same sort of way.
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 grandmother enter in the ballroom together at the end. Mia's mom and her date are clearly standing in front of the band, but when Mia is looking for someone to dance with, they are standing beside what looks like curtains. Then as Mia and Michael start dancing you see her mom back in front of the band.
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 end of the movie, when Mia and Michael are walking outside, Michael puts one arm behind his back. But in the close-up shot, his arm is at his side.
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: When Mia is in her room preparing to run away, there is a shot of Fat Louie in his carrier, and there is a white spot around his eye. In the rest of the movie he doesn't have a spot on his eye. This is because in the making of the movie there were 4 different cats used to portray Fat Louie. Still a mistake though.
Continuity mistake: When the Queen and Mia are in "her baby" driving to the arcade, and Mia asks if her grandma has any change, their mouths aren't moving in synch with what they are saying.
Continuity mistake: When Mia's mother says "The three of us have to talk" when she is having tea with Clarisse, you can see her left hand is by the green cup, but in the next shot her hand is now over the cup.
Continuity mistake: Right before Mia smashes the ice cream into Lana's chest, you can see that the necklace, which says Lana, is crooked and on the side. On the next shot, without her moving, it's suddenly straight.
Continuity mistake: When Mia is about to run away she grabs her bags then runs to her bedroom and shuts the door. After a couple of shots the door's open again.
Continuity mistake: When Mia and her mom are rock climbing, one shot shows Mia holding on to the rock with one hand, then the close up shows her hands are nowhere near the rock.
