Bend It Like Beckham

Factual error: When Jess arrives late at the final match, she is brought on as a substitute. Yet, the referee should know about the possible substitutes before they are brought on - he didn't even know about Jess. Jess said she wouldn't be able to make the match due to her sister's wedding. Therefore, she would have been removed from the team line-up.

Continuity mistake: About 35-40 minutes into the film, Jules and Jess are at the bus stop. Pinky's future in-laws drive by in the Jaguar with nothing in front of them. When the camera shot moves back as they enter the bend, another car has appeared in front of them.
