Daphne & Velma

Continuity mistake: In the morning videochat opening the movie, Daphne asks Velma about the gerbils. With the camera behind Velma you can see she is using her right hand to eat the snacks, but when her face is occupying the whole screen she is using her left hand instead. (00:03:05)

Continuity mistake: Daphne is having breakfast with her family. During the whole sequence, knife and especially fork in Sarah Jeffery's hands change position when the camera angle changes, almost every time. (00:04:50 - 00:05:55)

Continuity mistake: Daphne, book about Saturn in front of her, says that "school will be awesome." Her mom is looking at her with her fork pointed downwards. Close-up on Nadine Ellis, and her fork is pointed up. (00:06:00)

Continuity mistake: When Daphne bends over to pick up the badge, two guys are crossing the screen moving left to right; one of them is a dude with a maroon vest and a green plaid shirt, the other one has a maroon sweater. When the chat about Daphne's lucky moment is over, they both walk in opposite direction in separate shots. A girl with purple clothes is also recycled, peeking in frame when Velma is briefly shown, and then in the same frame as Green Shirt Guy. (00:07:00)

Continuity mistake: Daphne has just set food inside Ridge Valley High. "This is incredible, she says", and at the cut there's a couple of students who are engaged in some animated conversation. But one of the two (dark skinned guy with tan pants and a denim jacket) appears in the shots before and after that one, and he is walking solo. (00:07:15)

Continuity mistake: During Daphne's introduction to the school, meeting the various other kids, her badge frequently switches orientation between shots, as you can tell by the position of the lips of the logo, tilted to the left or to the right. (00:07:30 - 00:10:00)

Continuity mistake: When Carol points the Azalea phone at Griffin Griffiths and friends, they are having their dude-bro chat with Mike and Ryder kinda turned away from the phone, but in the close-up they are all leaning against the wall in an orderly fashion. (00:07:45)

Continuity mistake: The time shown on Carol's phone (9:35) is inconsistent with the time displayed in the corridor clock right after, which is a little earlier than 10:35, and that changes again when Spencer and Mikayla tag along. (00:08:00)

Continuity mistake: Daphne just met Spencer and Mikayla. In this scene, multiple continuity errors occur, practically at every shot For instance, the two girls close to the glass cabinet change position, and in the first shot ("Wait, your mom invented MatchMouth?") a tall girl and a boy with an afro walk by, disappear, popping by just before a new cut, when they disappear again, reappear, etc. (00:08:20)

Continuity mistake: When Carola shows Daphne the Bloom Bracket waving her arm at it, there's a sudden cut in the middle of the gesture, and suddenly people in the corridor have changed position. Moreover, right before the camera cuts away one more time, a black person is walking on the left of the frame, and he is walking again behind Daphne a few seconds later (when she is staring at the board after the word "extracurriculars" is spoken). (00:08:40)

Continuity mistake: When Daphne says "Wow, sounds pretty intense" as a comment on the "GPA on steroids", her hair is in front of her shoulders; Mikayla responds, and Daphne's hair is gone from the right shoulder. Moreover, Spencer is holding his strap with his left hand, and he wasn't before. (00:08:55)

Continuity mistake: Spencer makes his "Pie" gesture in different ways (fingers spread out, fingers adjoined) between the two wider shots and the narrow angle one. (00:09:15)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Daphne and Velma are finally talking face-to-face for the first time. During the whole scene there are multiple inconsistencies in the position of Daphne's hand on the strap of the bag, and her hair falling in front or behind the shoulder. (00:10:15 - 00:10:50)

Continuity mistake: Moving away from Daphne during their first chat, Velma trips on the crazy cleaning lady's mop. In Daphne's reaction shot, behind her there's someone (white jacket with 3 stripes) in front of a locker that does not appear before or afterwards. (00:10:50)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the first day at Ridge Valley High, the light flickers when Daphne is in the front of her locker. She closes it to investigate. The action spans across two separate shots, but she has her hand at different height. The first time her hand is on the lock, the second time much lower. (00:12:30)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Velma and Daphne are back to back on the corridor, hearing the spooky sounds. Velma moves away and just looks at her with her arms crossed. When Daphne says "Sounds like a ghost", Velma's reaction shot shows her with her arms down her body. (00:13:20)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: The dynamic duo sees Spencer in front of the locker secret passage. There is a clock right above him, and the minute hand points at 40 minutes. When Daphne's dad bumps into them, it's quarter past six. (00:14:05)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Velma runs away from Daphne and her pouncing dad, and bumps into (not literally this time) Two-Mop Maggie. Her namesake cleaning tools are held at different angles during the conversation that ensues. (00:14:45)

Continuity mistake: When we see Daphne retrieving sushi from the cafeteria (and it's unveiled that it was her dad in drag who passed it to her), the two nigiri pieces are oriented differently in the tray compared to the close-up. (00:17:00)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: A sad Daphne stands from her bed and says "I guess I'm just on my own now." She sits at the computer, and in the very first shot her ambiguously shaped Hitachi microphone thingy is lying on the desk, in front of her yellow notebook. Close-up, and she fetches it right from on top of the notebook. (00:18:55)

Other mistake: Daphne's dad drops the Legitimate Tulip badge in front of her so she'll avoid getting hurt, but when we see him do that, he does it before the warning for the ball is heard and seemingly not looking at the danger (especially in the second shot, when he is peeking from the corner). So his action makes no sense. (00:16:55)
