Continuity mistake: When Belinda comes to Landon's house to give him the pictures from the school play, her hair is in a ponytail. From the back all her hair is in the ponytail, but when they show her talking from the front, you see a piece of her hair hanging down. They switch back and forth between the front and back shots, so it's easy to catch.
Continuity mistake: When Landon walks up to Jamie and asks for help, Jamie closes her locker but doesn't lock it, yet the lock is firmly in place when they walk away.
Continuity mistake: In the scene after Landon gets in the car crash and he is at home, when he walks into the kitchen he is wearing a long sleeve shirt. In one shot his sleeves are all the way down and in the next shot when he sits down at the table his sleeves are pushed up. Between the two shots he would not have had enough time to push them up.
Continuity mistake: When Jamie is singing in the school play, her solid close-up and her bleed through close-up do not correspond. The solid image blinks but the bleed through does not and vice versa a few seconds later. Obviously, this was two different takes that were super-imposed together that, unfortunately, did not fully correspond with each other.
Other mistake: In the rehearsal scene, you can clearly see as the camera moves back that Jamie is cracking up as Miss Garber is demonstrating how to walk.
Continuity mistake: When Jamie is singing "Only Hope," the pianist's fingers do not match the actual music.
Continuity mistake: After Landon gives Jamie the pink sweater, he talks to his mother while she rips up a piece of lettuce for a salad. In one part, she starts to tear up a big piece, and when she is around halfway done, the scene cuts to in front of Landon and she is just throwing the last bits in.
Continuity mistake: When Jamie goes to see Landon after she has told him she is sick, he holds her head in his hands and then moves them down to giver her a hug. In the next shot his hands are back up on her head and move down once again.
Continuity mistake: During the play, Mandy begins to sing the song "Only Hope", and sits down at the table beside Shane West. You can clearly see a small layer of her hair hanging in front of her right eye. A moment later, when the camera angle switches from the back of her head, to her face again, the piece of her hair is gone.
Continuity mistake: When Jamie sings "Only Hope", she's smiling and her head is tilted to the left as she sings about "your galaxies dancing and laughing, and laughing again." The shot then dissolves to Jamie with her head straight and looking to her right. (00:40:05)
Continuity mistake: In the first cafeteria scene, Jamie dismisses Landon's advances by closing her book and knocking it loudly on the table. In the next shot (camera faces Landon) she knocks her book a second time. (00:45:00)
Continuity mistake: When Landon asks Jamie for help memorizing his lines for the school play, the books she is carrying keep changing positions from her left arm to her right. (00:24:50)
Continuity mistake: When Landon and Jamie walk past each other in the school hallway, Jamie walks past a girl in yellow standing next to some lockers. In the next shot, Jamie walks past the girl again. (00:34:45)
Audio problem: Landon's lips don't move when he repeatedly says "come on" to Jamie when he takes her to the state line. (00:57:55)
