Continuity mistake: In the scene when Halley just left from her counselor's office, Macon was going to go after her but the counselor stopped him. Then he was doing something with his hands and he had a pen. In the next shot, he sort of taps the wall, and the pen is gone.

Continuity mistake: In one scene, Macon approaches Halley while she's putting her stuff into her locker. The locker is wide open, then magically closed and locked in the next shot.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Halley enters Scarlett's bedroom before her boyfriend's funeral, there is a shot of Halley coming through the door and closing it behind her. The shot switches to Scarlett throwing her clothes off the bed and in the background you can hear the door close. When the camera switches back to Halley, she is again closing the door. (00:21:55)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Halley's mom is chopping the carrots the shot switches and she chops off the top to a zucchini then the shot changes and switches back to her chopping and she is once again chopping a carrot.

Continuity mistake: Right after Macon and Halley get in the wreck (when they hit a tree head on), Macon drops Halley off at the hospital then drives away. As we see his car drive away, you notice the front end of the car has no visible damage whatsoever. A car going as fast as they were going and then hitting a tree would have done major damage to the car. It shouldn't have even been driveable. (01:06:45)

Continuity mistake: After Ashley and her fiance have a fight and call off the wedding, she and Halley are at their dad's house and his new wife is making drinks and giving Ashley advice. When she hands a drink to their dad, he takes the glass with his left hand, where you can see he is not wearing a wedding ring. In the next shot, he is still holding the glass in his left hand, and the wedding ring is there. (01:16:30)

Halley: I imagine star wars figurines must be expensive.
Macon: I don't have Star Wars figurines... well, not many. But I don't play with them... much.
