Continuity mistake: Tai and Cher are hugging when they are watching Travis' skateboarding competition. Cher starts out on the left and Tai on the right. They hug in that position and then mysteriously end their hug on opposite sides.


Continuity mistake: When Dionne is driving Cher and Murray in his BMW on the highway and the tractor trailer comes up behind them, it appears to change lanes to pass them 3 times. However when the camera angle changes the truck is lined up right behind them again.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Cher picks up Dion and they drive to school, Dion's nose ring appears and disappears with each shot. Same case for other scenes/shots throughout the film.

Continuity mistake: When the group arrive at the Valley party you can see that the house is a single story, but later when Cher goes out to the pool the house is now a two story.

Continuity mistake: On the part where Ty and Cher are at Travis' competition, after they "make up" they sit down beside each other and they are toward the back with no people around them, yet on the next shot, they are toward the front and there's a bunch of people behind them.


Continuity mistake: When Tai is being held over the railing at the mall by the guys from Foot Locker, Christian begins to run towards her as soon as she screams. There is a shot of Tai, and then back to Cher and Christian. But Christian's motion resumes from exactly where he had been in the last shot of him, despite almost two elapsed seconds.

Continuity mistake: When Cher is taking her driving test and is supposed to be changing lanes, she almost hits a biker. But if you look closely when she is actually just hitting the biker you can see that it is not her, but a professional driver. The next shot then goes back to being the real Cher.


Continuity mistake: When Cher is helping Josh and the other lawyer go through depositions, and screws up, the other lawyer yells at her and she runs up the stairs crying. However the view switches to Josh with the staircase behind him when she should still be in view on the staircase and she's not there.

Continuity mistake: When Dan Hedeya is sorting the mail, there is a close up of two peices of mail. The first is a letter addressed to Melvin Hamilton with 90210 zip code. The second piece, Cher's report card, is addressed as Cher Hamilton with the zip code of 90212. Cher's last name is Horowitz, as established earlier in the film. (00:19:56)

Continuity mistake: While Tai is in the livingroom, Cher and Josh are in the kitchen as Josh fixes himself a turkey sandwich. When they reach the livingroom doorway he's taking a bite out of it as he holds the sandwich is in his left hand, but next shot it's in his right as he continues taking a bite.

Continuity mistake: When Cher invites Christian over, she's wearing a lot of eyeshadow. Lots of pink and lots of colour. It's even clear after she falls off the bed. But when she shows him to the door, which is right after her falling off, her makeup is different.

Continuity mistake: When Josh is taking Cher driving for the first time and Josh says "This is America we drive on the right side of the road." You see him saying that and then there is a cut of Cher and you see the curb like it's right next to her but you also see the curb right next to Josh - could be a one lane street but when they show you the car it is a 2 lane street.

Continuity mistake: When Cher is sitting on the couch with Josh doing her hair, one shot of her from the back shows all her hair in the clip, but in another shot of her from the back, only some parts of her hair are in the clip, in half up-half down style.

Continuity mistake: When Cher and Josh are sitting on the stairs near the end, Cher's hair is either behind her ear or loose (I can't remember which). When they next show her it is the opposite.

Continuity mistake: At the party Tai, Cher, Josh and Christian are at, Tai asks Cher what to do with her shirt and Cher tells her to tie it around her waist. The film cuts to the band and when it cuts back to Tai, she's wearing her shirt again. The film again cuts to something else and when it cuts to Tai she isn't wearing the shirt, nor is it tied around her waist.

Suggested correction: It is not exact cuts. Tai is standing there being ignored and she's trying to put her shirt on in different ways to attract attention. She went from wearing it open to tying it around her waist to putting it on and tying it just under her bustline to tying it around her head to finally just wearing it open.


Continuity mistake: When Travis gives Tai the invitation to the Valley party when she, Cher and Dionne are walking, the notebook flips over in Tai's hand between the wideshot and last close-up - note its flap.

Visible crew/equipment: After Josh tells Cher she's such a brat, at the start of the next shot which is the first close-up of Cher during the driver's test, just as she says, "I had an overwhelming sense of ickiness, even though I apologized to Lucy," the top of a crewmember's head, with his short wavy hair blowing in the wind, is reflected at the bottom of the Jeep's windshield, directly in front of Cher and the steering wheel.

Question: Cher claims her jeep has dual side airbags. That seems ridiculous for an open top vehicle. Does that model really come with side airbags, or was that supposed to be a 'clueless' comment?


Chosen answer: When she says "dual side", Cher is referring to the driver side and passenger side airbags (which are installed in the dashboard in front of each seat), not airbags on the side of the Jeep (aka in the doors).
