Continuity mistake: When Madison is speeding away in her Shelby Cobra with the Angels hanging on, she crashes into a theatre. While in the theatre, there are shots of the car in the background. It is a completely different car than the Shelby that Madison was driving a few minutes before. The racing stripes are thicker, the wheels are different and the car is actually a lot bigger.

Factual error: Helicopter rotor blades do not unfold by themselves and there is no way to unfold them from inside the helicopter. A trained mechanic with the right tools and equipment (including the proper ladder for the job) will take a minimum of twenty minutes to rig a four bladed rotor, and that's if (s)he's in a hurry. An airborne (i.e. falling) helicopter? Forget it.
Continuity mistake: When Demi Moore shoots the Angels off the side of the observatory, the bullet intended for Drew Barrymore hits her in the lower abdomen. Later in the movie when the Angels wake up on the lawn below the observatory, the only bullet hole in Drew's shirt is on her upper left chest.
01:17:05 - 01:20:25
Deliberate mistake: Bosley is a school crossing guard trying to help the Angels. The children behind them say they are gonna be late for school. Of course they're going to be late because there is not a school within 10 miles of where they are standing. There's trees and what looks like a huge mountainside on the other side of the street. You can see this more visibly as the car that is about to run over Bosley is approaching. Done for a gag, but still ridiculous.
Continuity mistake: When Natalie is talking to the surfer by his car, Alex and Dylan are under the car looking through his belongings. After he gets into the car to drive off, it cuts to Natalie and she says something, cuts back to the surfer pulling away in his car and then cuts to a shot of Dylan but you can see the surfer's leg/towel in the shot. Shouldn't he already be in the car?
Continuity mistake: This is during the fight between the Angels and O'Grady's thugs. Seamus has Dylan against a container. He aims to punch Dylan but misses and hits the container to the right of her face instead. There's white writing on the container. Cut to the next shot and the writing is now to the left of Dylan's face.
Factual error: When Madison falls through the stage floor she breaks a pipe and her pistol ignites a flame. I'm guessing this must have been a natural gas pipe, which if broken leaves no regulation of the natural gas flow, therefore the explosion would have taken out the entire stage not just sent a little flame coming up through the hole in the stage.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the Angels' last fight with Demi Moore, we get a closeup of Demi's mouth. It is bloody and her teeth are covered in red. A few seconds later, after she falls backward through the floor and begins to scream, there is no blood on her face and her teeth are pearly white.
Continuity mistake: When the Angels are sitting at the desks talking to mother superior, she asks the Angels to move forward. Watch Cameron Diaz. The first time she grasps her desk to bring it forward, it's on the front bit. Then it shows a shot from behind and she is grasping it from the sides, then back to the front shot and she is grasping it from the front again.
Revealing mistake: When the Angels are fighting on the rooftop, Demi Moore stands on another building nearby with a dress and a thing around her hands. Her hands aren't free obviously, but as she peeks through the telescope you can see the ocular moving around following the Angels and when the shot ends, her hands are still in the thing.
Factual error: In the scene where the helicopter falls off the bridge there isn't enough time to start the helicopter, let the systems get enough pressure and get the blades rotating fast enough to provide enough lift to fly plus at the angle the helicopter was falling it couldn't even auto rotate.
Continuity mistake: When the Angels find the photos on Emmet's body at the coal bowl, the picture of Helen Zaas shows her holding her Lucky lighter. If you look closely, you can see that it is completely different to the Lucky lighter which Dylan carries. The stars part of the 'Stars and Stripes' design cover the whole lid on Dylan's lighter, but on Helen Zaas's lighter it only covers half of the lid.
Factual error: When Lucy L. is using the gas pipe as a flamethrower, it is suddenly turned off afterward. This could be because of one of the other characters turning the handle, but if they turned it off in that way (or any way), the flame would go inside the tube and make the tank blow up.
Continuity mistake: When the Angels are at the races Natalie wiggles her head at a man and streches her arms out. Then it cuts to the man and behind him is a man on a bike jumping off a ramp and he is in mid-air. It then cuts to Natalie, then to the man again and the same man behind him jumping off the ramp, has only just began to jump.
Revealing mistake: When you see the picture of Alex and her parents in front of the Eiffel Tower, her face has obviously just been added into the photo, which is shown because the lighting is different and she is wearing the same top as she was when she was in the office with the Angels, talking to Max.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the big motorcross scene, the Creepy Thin Man's bike hits a spar right where it connects to a leg on one of the electrical towers. The bike hits above the front tire and flips over the top of the bar, while the obvious dummy falls backward away from the bike. But when it cuts to Creepy Thin Man getting up and staggering off, the bike is back in front of the leg, right behind him. With the trajectory of both falling objects (bike and the Thin Man), he should have been thrown much farther from the metal leg and the bike should have landed yards behind it, rather than the two landing close together.
