Continuity mistake: When the girls in Sharon's cabin have been booby-trapped, they all wake up screaming to the sound of the bugle. There are shots of them in their beds and then one shot of a girl in the middle of the cabin getting a bucket of water dumped on her head. Considering that the cabin is covered in strings and stuff how could she have gotten there in just seconds?

Continuity mistake: In the cabin when they are coming up with the idea to swap places, Susan has on white sneakers in the beginning of the scene when she is on the bed, and Sharon has on the black Mary Janes. Later in the scene, with no time to change shoes, Susan is seen walking around the cabin wearing the black Mary Janes.

Audio problem: When Susan is playing the guitar, it has an electric guitar sound. Susan is not playing an electric guitar and neither is Hecky so the guitar should not sound like that.

Other mistake: When the girls leave camp they wave good-bye to each other. If you look closely it is obvious that one of the girls (the one in the distance waving) is a double who does not look like Susan/ Sharon at all.

Continuity mistake: Watch the yellow float that falls into the lake with Mitch, when Mitch is straining to see Maggie. First you can barely see it floating towards the right of the lake. Next angle, and it's behind him to the left.

Revealing mistake: When the "twins" are singing "Let's Get Together" they are standing side by side. Watch closely - because of the split screen, one twin's arm disappears for just a second when she swings it upwards. It actually happens twice - middle of song and end.

Revealing mistake: When Mitch is driving "Susan" home from the airport, in one shot, the knob of the gear selector lever is visible above the dashboard, which means the transmission would be in Park.

Continuity mistake: When Maggie and "Sharon" are having a picnic in the city park, they have a large wicker picnic basket. After they are done, and are walking home through the park, the picnic basket is no where to be seen. They have apparently just left it behind.

Continuity mistake: When driving home to Boston from camp, they would show her in the car and the street behind her was like a big city street, then when they show the car from the outside, the street is like a small neighborhood street with totally different buildings and totally different cars (even different colors) right behind her.

Character mistake: Mitch and Hecky are experienced ranchers - so why, when they are all camping, would they leave all the food out in the open within easy reach of bears and other wildlife?
