Corrected entry: In the store that Jules and Jess go into in London to get football clothing the sign above the store says soccer instead of football. No UK shop uses "soccer".
Corrected entry: In the scene where Jules and Jess are watching football on TV in Jules room, Jules is wearing a striped shirt. A few minutes later when Jules's mother is coming into the room, the girls move over to Jules's bed and now Jules is wearing a solid navy blue shirt.
Corrected entry: Jess fakes being sick to go to her football match. Just before Jess runs out of the house to go to her match, she stands in her living room looking at the picture of the religious leader Bubaji. Over to the right is a small stand with a phone and phone book. A striped chair sits next too it. When the father comes back to the house for his wallet, it is on this stand. The wallet should be on the stand when Jess is looking at Bubaji, but it isn't.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Jess is talking to her sister in the wedding car (just after Jules' mother stormed the wedding and accused her of being a lesbian), you can see a little girl through the rear window behind them who repeatedly looks at the camera.
Corrected entry: The film starts the day before Pinky's wedding (she tells her friends "one more day of freedom"); however, at least several weeks go by before her fiancé's parents call it off (Jess' teammates wonder if her parents are okay with her playing "all this time"), and we aren't told of any other reason it may have been delayed.MoonFaery
Corrected entry: Jules is explaining to her mother (while driving away from Jess' sister's wedding) that she is not a lesbian. When Jules is saying "Joe, man, Joe", neither Jules nor her mom are moving their mouths.
Corrected entry: A few shots after Jess's father finishes putting up the lights on his house, there is a long shot showing the house from day to night, and there is a helicopter flying over the house steadily. If the shot is showing at least 6 hours time, why would the helicopter take 6 hours to fly over one house?
Corrected entry: When Julz says to Jess in her bedroom "you're just wasting your bloody time" and opens the door to let herself out, she puts her hand on the outside handle to click the door shut. However, when she "supposedly storms out", the door handle remains pointed downwards, meaning that julz is still holding on to the handle
Corrected entry: If Jess has to cover up, then why is she running around in a singlet top in the middle of the park playing soccer with Tony and the other guys?
Corrected entry: At one point an American commentator refers to a player in an American TV game as a "footballer". An American commentator would not use this term, as it would be confusing to most Americans - American football is an entirely different game.
Corrected entry: When Jess's parents have gone to the temple and she is preparing to go to her football match, she runs out the door in what she's wearing, her uniform and a blue jacket. when her father picks her up, she has a long-sleeved teeshirt, track pants and a sports bag with her. Surely he didn't take those for her, if he was angry at her for going?
Corrected entry: In the shot after the player makes a goal and the other player is polishing her shoe. In the background you can see Jules trip and fall.
Corrected entry: When all the girls are in the locker room and Jess is talking about who she can and cannot marry, you see a girl tying her shoes and getting dressed behind the fence directly in back of Jess. But immediately after that, the girl is already coming around the fence to Jess' side and says something about how much fun it is to date different boys.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film, we see Manchester United playing Anderlecht - a Belgian team. The only time they've done this recently is in the UEFA Champions' League in 2000. The Champions' League is exclusive to ITV, yet EVERYONE in either the studio or doing the commentary is on the BBC.
Corrected entry: When Jess is at the club in Germany, when you first see her on the dance floor she has a glass in her hand. Then when the shot goes back to her the glass is gone.
Corrected entry: After getting sent off, the manager shouts at Jess something like, "You're lucky they don't have suspensions in this tournament." I'm surprised: there's no football tournament I'm aware of that doesn't suspend sent-off players.
Corrected entry: Jess gets her A level results just after she's given up football. A level results come out in August, and the football seson ends in May. It couldn't have been the start of a new season, because she had been playing for a while.
