Continuity mistake: After Mark Darcy and Daniel Cleaver fight in the street and Bridget goes to comfort Cleaver, Mark Darcy flings his jacket over his shoulder as he walks off. You can see very clearly that the white lining of the sleeve, flapping around as he walks. When the camera cuts to his receding back, the jacket is perfectly flat and smooth down his back, and the lining is no where to be seen.
Continuity mistake: Tom is changing the fascia of his mobile phone. When we first see him, he is holding the phone up to his shirt and the fascia is blue, he then puts the phone down near to Bridget. It then cuts back to Tom and the phone has moved nearer to Jude and the fascia is green. Tom then opens the box in front of him and hold the blue fascia up so it falls out of the plastic wrapping completely, just before a man comes up to ask him if 'he's the bloke who sang that song' he is getting the blue fascia out of the plastic wrapping again.
Continuity mistake: Mark Darcy is in Bridget's flat and he notices the diary under a folded newspaper and some magazines. In this front shot, he puts the magazines down next to the newspaper and pulls the diary out from under the newspaper. In the next close-up looking down at the table when he holds the diary, the folded newspaper is no longer there. When Bridget walks into the room after Mark leaves, in this front shot of the table, the newspaper is under the diary that Mark had put down. When Bridget comes back from the window, in the close-up looking down at the table, once again the newspaper is not under the diary.
Continuity mistake: In the shot where Bridget goes to see her mom when the mother is selling the egg separator, her sweatshirt strings are crossed, when the shot cuts to her again they are crossed the other way. After the demonstration, when she is talking with her mother, they are back the same way again.
Continuity mistake: When Bridget and Daniel have gone back to his apartment and they are kissing on the floor and he discovers her enormous panties, she is trying to keep him from checking them out again. In one shot the strap of her dress is up over her shoulder, then it's down off her shoulder, then back up again.
Continuity mistake: At the tarts and vicars party, Bridget and Mark almost start arguing about Daniel and 'Mark's past behaviour'. Look at Bridget's hair between when she says 'I think he would say the same about you given your past behaviour' and when Natasha calls Mark over - Bridget's fringe changes shape in the three different shots.
Continuity mistake: When Mark and Daniel are having their big fight, Mark punches Daniel really hard, causing him to fall to the ground. In the shot of the punch Daniel falls face down towards the ground, however in the next shot he lands flat on his back. It would've been impossible for him to have turned around-especially being knocked out.
Continuity mistake: When Bridget is quitting her job and Daniel is trying to convince her to stay, you can see a woman behind him, hanging at the door of his office. She's already half inside, but there was no other person in Daniel's office apart from him and Bridget, and she wasn't seen coming into the office.
Continuity mistake: When Bridget's boss at the TV show tells her he wants her to cover the Kafir/Heeney case (the freedom fighter), Bridget is playing with her pen over her right shoulder. The shot then shows her boss is talking to her, but neither her hand nor pen are up - in the next angle of her, she is still waving her pen up by her right shoulder.
Continuity mistake: When Bridget is at the "tarts and vicars" party, her "uncle" Geoffrey pinches her bunny tail for the second time - when he bends over to pinch it he has a straw (or maybe a cigarette?) in his mouth. Just as he does this, Bridget's mother comes along and slaps his hand, he pulls up and there is nothing in his mouth.
Continuity mistake: When Bridget is writing in her diary about the kind of man she must not go for, she is writing on the left page. When the voice over says "And especially must not fantasize about particular person who embodies all these things" there is a close up and she's writing on the right page. Seeing as her diary has a page per entry, not really probable that this would happen.
Continuity mistake: When Bridget, Daniel and the other guy are in the lift at the start, Bridget is in the centre of the lift. The other guy gets out and Mr. Fitzherbert replaces him. Then Daniel gropes Bridgets bum and we see them all get out - Bridget is suddenly in the corner, but the whole time she never moved.
Continuity mistake: While Bridget and Daniel are driving to their "full-blown mini-break holiday weekend", Bridget lifts the sunglasses over her forehead with her left hand and holds the scarf at her neck with her right hand, but in the next shot before her scarf blows off her hands are in the opposite positions.
Continuity mistake: After Bridget and Daniel Cleaver go out for a meal, they hail a cab outside the restaurant. The road is Shad Thames and is locked by gates at every exit every night and pedestrianised, so a) How did they hail a cab from a locked road? and b) Where could it take them to?
Continuity mistake: When Bridget writes her diary on 1st January, we see the fridge in the background at floor level, alongside other kitchen units. But later, just after Daniel has announced his engagement to Lara, Bridget opens the fridge to "eat the entire contents" - the fridge is now on the sideboard, with no units beside it, also its decorations are different. Later when Bridget is cooking, she opens the fridge and looks in - she is crouching in front of it, as if it is at floor level again.
Continuity mistake: When her mother comes back home, the camera switches between a view of her Mum where you can see the back of her Dad's head, and the reverse shot. When she's saying "you must pay more attention to me", after she says "me" her mouth is open when you see the back of her head, but after it switches and we see her from the front, her mouth's shut.
