Continuity mistake: When the guy at the bar orders 8 shots and Cammy (the blonde) tosses up 8 shot glasses in a fancy manner, as you can see she throws them up into 2 rows of 4. But then in the next shot they're all just in one long row of eight. It would be impossible for her to arrange them that quickly - there is only about a second between the two shots.
Revealing mistake: In the scene where Violet sings for Kevin for the first time, he starts to switch the lights off. Notice when he has turned off the lamps, the room is still very bright, but when he blows the candle out, the room is suddenly totally dark. That single candle could not possibly have lit-up the room and the characters the way it did, after the electrical light was switched off.
Continuity mistake: Near the beginning when Violet goes to the open mike night she is wearing jeans, but when she arrives home and finds her apartment broken into she is wearing a skirt and a different shirt. (The skirt and white shirt with the denim jacket that she wore for the first 2 or 3 days).
Continuity mistake: In the last scene when Violet says to Kevin "So what do you do when you realise all your dreams have come true?", Violet moves in to kiss Kevin and she gets really close and then the camera cuts away to a different view and it shows Violet taking a step towards Kevin from 2 - 3 feet away.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Violet and Kevin are in the CD shop and Kevin is asking Violet to play at his friends club, Violet is wearing a tan and blue necklace and then when the camera takes a shot of Kevin and then goes back to Violet, her necklace has been flipped over and then again when Violet embraces Kevin, her necklace has been flipped around again.
Continuity mistake: In one of the final scenes when Violet is performing at the 'Ballary Ballroom', just after Kevin has turned off the lights and Violet thinks 'Hey, They've all disappeared' and starts to sing, the first few words of the song are sung, but Violet's mouth doesn't move at all, until she suddenly decides to sing a few seconds later... from the beginning.
Continuity mistake: In the scene at the bar when Rachel is trying to get all the females to give her their bras, at first she is on the bar. In the next shot she is behind the bar taking money. The next shot she is on the bar again. She goes from being on the bar to being behind the bar 4 or 5 times in that scene.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning "Pete" asks Violet for her autograph on a time card. She signs it and the "T" is not crossed, and when Pete puts it on the board it is crossed. Then at the end when Violet's dad buys it from Pete it is again not crossed. Also if you look at the "V" when she signs it and after Pete puts it up they are different. And lastly, when Violet signs her last name it is spaced but when Pete puts it up it is jumbled together. Her signature is different all around.
00:01:30 - 01:27:30
Continuity mistake: When Zoe, Tyra Banks, is 'crowd surfing', she is heading away from the bar. The next scene is where Violet hands Lil two beers, but in the scene directly after that, you can see all of the girls behind the bar, even Zoe (if you look way back to the right, next to Rachel). There is no way Zoe could have gotten back there that fast.
Continuity mistake: During the scene between Piper Perabo and Melanie Lynskey, outside Violet's apartment in Chinatown, Melanie's character, Gloria, is wearing sunglasses on her head. Looking closely, you can notice the overhead lighting reflecting in her sunglasses. Apparently, the sunglasses were not dirtied enough for the light to disappear.
Continuity mistake: When Violet goes to talk to Lil for the first time to ask for a job, Lil asks to see her arms. Violet holds out both arms, and Lil takes Violet's right arm in both hands, commenting on her burn scar (you see a close-up). In the very next scene, Lil is holding both of Violet's arms, one in each hand.
Continuity mistake: When Gloria is talking to Violet just after they have arrived in New York, when they are standing' outside the car, Violets hair is curly and a lot of it is flowing over the front of her shoulders. Whenever there is a shot from the back, her hair is not so curly and pushed behind her shoulders. It continues to do this throughout the scene.
Factual error: In the scene where Violet gets her tapes back outside her apartment, she looks at an envelope with HER name as the sending address and the company as the return address. This is possible, however, the envelope would not be stamped "unsolicited mail" if it was re-packaged by the company. An unsolicited stamp would be there, like all the other envelopes, if it was being returned to her in the original envelope, with her name as the RETURN address, instead of the sending address.
Continuity mistake: On Violet's first night at "Coyote Ugly," the girls are on the bar dancing to "The Devil Went Down To Georgia." Lil and Violet are behind the bar. Violet says to Lil "I can't do that dance." The scene then goes back to the girls on the bar and Lil is the only one behind the bar dancing. In the very next scene, Lil gives Violet her coat and some money. The scene went from Violet and Lil standing together, to Lil being the only one behind the bar, back to Violet and Lil standing together in three seconds.
Revealing mistake: In the scene where Violet writes "Right Kind of Wrong," she plays the first two chords of the song backwards on the keyboard. The chords in the song go from a higher chord to a lower chord, and she plays as if it was the other way, moving her right hand from the lower notes to the higher notes on the keyboard.
