Corrected entry: When Anna and Tess are getting dressed for the wedding rehearsal, Anna (Tess) makes Tess (Anna) take out the earring from her ear, that she got pierced hours before. When she does this there is no sign of pain, redness, or blood that would occur after pulling out a fresh piercing.

Correction: Not every person has that reaction. It's only cartilage as well, not the earlobe, but up high. That area doesn't react the same either, for anyone.

Corrected entry: When "Anna" discovers that "Tess" has pierced her ear, she orders her to remove the earring and Tess does. The next day at the wedding, "Tess" has the earring back in her ear. This would have been impossible unless she re-pierced her ear - which stores will not do. Earrings must be left in for at least six weeks before removing/changing them.

Correction: I have 9 piercings. I have removed them multiple times before the time allowed. They don't always close up and sometimes they start to and it is possible to "push" the post through (with some pain).

Corrected entry: When Lindsay Lohan walks into the garage she picks up her guitar, plugs it in, and immediately starts playing.However, if the amp was already on, it would have made a loud buzzing noise when the plug touched the metal, and we never see anyone else turn it on.


Correction: While it's hard to do, it is possible to plug your guitar in without the buzzing noise. I just did it 3 times with my set up.

Corrected entry: When Tess is in a talk show, you can see set lights on grandpa's glasses.


Correction: They're the lights from the TV studio filming the show!

Brad Premium member

Corrected entry: The first time we see Anna's band, when they practice in the garage, the wire that connects to Anna's guitar keeps changing from black to bright blue.

Jennifer 1

Correction: The guitar lead is black with blue support near the jack. In some shots you can only see the blue part.

Corrected entry: When Jake and Anna are at his motorcycle after she has completed her test. He tells her that it was mean of her to change the other girl's test answers. When the camera is behind (and to the side of) Anna, her jaw is not moving, yet there is obviously a dubbed line added as you hear her voice.

Jack's Revenge

Correction: Actually, her lips do move, just not too much.

Corrected entry: When Lindsay Lohan's brother is running around with a pair of briefs on his head, he runs with ease to Jamie Lee Curtis - thus seeming to be able to see where he's going. Yet a minute later, he runs into the door as if he COULDN'T see.


Correction: Harry probably could see out of the underwear when he ran to Tess. Tess was trying to get them off and they could have moved, thus Harry couldn't see the door.

Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, Ann Coleman gets an "F" and a "Preposterous" on her essay. The essay is actually rather good. Perhaps the reason that she got an "F" is because she copied it from this website:


Correction: The reason she got an F was discovered later on - after Anna and Dr. Coleman switch bodies and Dr. Coleman (in Anna's body) goes to school and takes her English class. Dr. Coleman realises at the end of class that the English teacher is giving Anna bad grades because because Dr. Coleman turned down the teacher when they were younger to a high school dance and is now taking it out on Dr. Coleman's daughter, Anna.

Corrected entry: When Anna (still herself) arrives home from school, she finds her brother in her room playing with her guitar. The camera moves down the house to the open garage door, showing the faces of the confused teens. Seconds later, when they start to play, the garage door is closed.

Correction: It would have taken more than three seconds for Anna to pull the underwear on her brother's head. They could have closed the garage door in that short amount of time.

Corrected entry: When Anna (in Tess' body) and Jake are at the cafe discussing music and bands, and they start singing "Baby One More Time," the black gentleman at the table behind them looks at them like they're crazy, then turns back to his newspaper, then it cuts to a wide shot, and he's instantly looking at them again.

Correction: Maybe the black gentlemen spun around to look at them again because they were annoying him or maybe it was because he wanted to decide whether he was seeing/hearing things.

Corrected entry: Jamie Lee Curtis (being possessed by her daughter) is playing the guitar towards the end of the movie, so Lindsay Lohan (being possessed by her mother) looks like *she* is actually playing it. However, since Lindsay Lohan's body is obviously not playing even remotely the same notes being heard by the teen audience (and furthermore, her fellow bandmates) in the movie, how come everybody seems to think she is?


Correction: Teen audiences normally don't pay attention to the way people's fingers move on the guitar, they just listen to the music. Or the ones who do pay attention don't care. The ones in the far back can't even really tell.

Corrected entry: Early in the movie when Anna is leaving PE detention, she drops her bag, causing a bunch of books, pens, and pencils to fall out. As she is picking them up, you can see a black pen rolling on the ground behind her. However, when she is walking with Jake, the pen on the floor is gone, even though she never picked it up.

Dandude776 1

Correction: You actually can't see the pen because she is blocking it.

Corrected entry: When Anna and Tess (in each other's bodies) are talking on the stairs before getting dressed for the rehearsal dinner, you can see the end of a large black microphone drop into sight at the very top of the screen. About a second later, it's raised back up again, out of sight.

Correction: I watched every frame of them on the stairs (widescreen and fullscreen) and saw no boom mic.

Corrected entry: When the dentist calls to confirm an appointment for a root canal, Anna (in Tess's body) cancels the appointment because she did not want to have the root canal for Tess. Dentists only call on the day before or on the day of to confirm an appointment, and Tess is getting married the next day. How many people with a Doctor's level of intelligence schedule a root canal that close to their wedding?

Reservoir Dog

Correction: This was a Friday so the appointment could have been on Monday (next business day).

Corrected entry: When Tess/Anna is on TV and it cuts back to the audience, at one point you can see a whole lot of equipment and a person holding a cue card. Normally in TV studios these wouldn't be visible on the actual show.

cameron davies

Correction: Though it is true that normally the production crew and/or studio equipment are not visible on TV talk shows, morning shows, etc., there are numerous occasions in reality where this was/is not the case, whether or not the show is taped or live on the air. Off the top of my head I remember this occurring on The Tonight Show, The Rosie O'Donnell Show and Live with Regis and Kelly.

Corrected entry: When Anna's band is rehearsing, her hair goes from frizzy and tangled in one shot to smooth in the next.

Correction: Actually, Anna's hair is smooth the whole time they are rehearsing. It is tangled and frizzy when she is chasing her brother around the house and then changes to smooth when she goes to the garage to rehearse. That isn't a mistake either though, because she could have quickly brushed it before coming out.

Corrected entry: Lindsay Lohan's door was taken off of her room at the beginning of the movie, before she gets home from school. Later on, there are shots with the door still on, but when she and her mom have switched places and they are getting ready for the rehearsal dinner, they both comment on how the door is no longer there. It somehow magically appears and disappears between scenes.

Correction: Anna's door was only taken from her room AFTER her mother got the phone call from the principal, informing her of Anna's misbehavior. This is AFTER she gets home from school, NOT BEFORE. And, furthermore, the door STAYS off for the remainder of the film.

Corrected entry: While at school, Anna turned her shirt inside out after seeing another girl wearing the same shirt (With her shirt inside out you see the stitching on her shirt where the logo is, inside out). But a few scenes later when Jake walks by, her shirt is on normally but has no logo on it.

Correction: Actually, once Anna turned the shirt inside out, it stayed like that for the rest of the day, until she gets home from school. And, furthermore, if one watches carefully, when Jake walks by, her shirt is CLEARLY still inside out, and the logo is still in plain view.

Corrected entry: In the shot where Tess is in Anna's body, at school she sees Stacy Hinchouse and decides to give her a hug. Stacy then hugs her pulling the back of Anna's shirt over Anna's head and shoves her,which then leads to Anna falling over a bike rack onto the ground. The next shot is a close up of Anna's face pulling her shirt back down in FRONT of her, not back over her head, like Stacy had done before.

Correction: Stacy pulls it behind "Anna" to trick her, so "Anna" pulls it back down in front of her (it doesn't make a difference).

Corrected entry: When Evin and Tess (still herself) are in their session at the beginning of the movie Evin starts by saying he's had a good week. Later, when Tess (in Anna) and Ann (in Tess) are talking after they've woken up and noticed the switch, Tess (in Anna) mentions that Evin is her neediest patient, and that she's seen him everyday for the last couple years. Evin wouldn't start talking about the beginning of the week, Tess already knows.

Correction: Maybe since Evin is nervous and probably has mental issues he wanted to say something so he started a casual "I've been having a good week so far."

Corrected entry: The entire time Ryan is on the set of The Dottie Robertson Show he is wearing a maroon tie. In the next scene while he is driving home from the Dottie Robertson Show studio he sees Tess on the motorcycle with Jake. In this scene his tie is blue.

Correction: It's not straight after the Dottie Robertson Show, it's a little later, he is actually in his wedding rehearsal outfit.

Corrected entry: In and before the wedding rehearsal (before the audition) Anna's eyeshadow is vaguely grey. However, when they return, it is very little in the inner eye bit.

Correction: If you look closely, it is the same both times.

Corrected entry: When Tess (at the beginning of the movie) enters her office with Evin, you see her open her office door, closing it behind her. It then shows a shot of the office and she's closing the door again.

Correction: It is two seperate doors. The first door is the waiting/reception area, then her office.

William Bergquist

Corrected entry: At the beginning in the Chinese restaurant, Anna runs into the toilets and locks the door, leaving Tess out. They crack open their fortune cookies, read them and feel the earthquake. When they get to the table, they ask Harry, Ryan and Grandpa about the earthquake. They all claim that they felt nothing. At the rehearsal dinner, after Tess's speech, there is another earthquake. Everyone in the room feels it this time.

Correction: In the first scene, both Anna and Tess were in different rooms than everyone else; the effect was felt only where the both of them were. In the second one, they're with the crowd, so everyone feels it.


Corrected entry: Just after Tess and Anna scream after realizing they've switched, you hear Tess (in Anna) say she wants her body back, then Anna (in Tess) say "And I don't want mine. My wedding's tomorrow." She doesn't want it back?

Correction: She says, "And I don't want mine?" She was being sarcastic. She does want her body back.


Corrected entry: When Anna's band is performing at the House of Blues, during the song two harmony notes on the "ooos" can be heard. This wouldn't be possible since Anna isn't singing.

Correction: I listened that is surely ONE person being heard. What the microphone does to your voice can make it sound a little weird.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Anna wants Jake to give her a ride on his bike after school, you can clearly see to camera equipment in Jake's bike helmet visor.

Correction: This is not the camera crew. It is very clear, especially when watching it in slow mo. that it is the reflection of the trees and bushes opposite him, which we see him ride past a few seconds later.

Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie, during the wedding reception, Tess is wearing the earring in her cartilage (that Anna had gotten while she was in Tess's body), but earlier in the movie Anna (Tess in Anna's body) had made Tess (Anna in Tess's body) take the earring out, the hole would have closed up by then since it had just been pierced the day before.

Correction: Not necessarily. People heal at different rates.

Corrected entry: In the last scene Tess (In Anna's Body) Is crying because of cancelling the wedding. Surely her makeup would have smudged if she was crying.

Correction: Depends on the make up. There are some really good waterproof products out now.

Jack's Revenge

Corrected entry: How is it that a guy working at a high school and a coffee shop can afford a Ducati motorcycle? The average price for a Ducati is around $10-15 thousand. His parents can't have bought it, as if they were that generous he wouldn't be working two jobs.


Correction: Parents could pay half and he has to pay the other half. There are also payment plans for vehicles. An adult can sign for the plan while the kid pays for it. Many parents do this for their kids so the kid has transportation but isn't getting it for free.

Corrected entry: When Anna's band is playing early in the movie, Tess goes to the breaker box and searches for the one that goes to the garage before turning it off. One of the band members immediately says "Not again!" and Tess says something like "(Anna) hates it when I pull the plug..." to her fiancee, both statements indicating that Tess has done this many times before. Why, then, did she have to search for the breaker to the garage?


Correction: Because even when you perform a task many times over, your mind still slips sometimes. I work in a video store and we have to repeat due dates constantly but sometimes, even after repeating the same days over and over, you forget for a second.

Corrected entry: When Anna's band plays at the House of Blues Jake watches them and he has a mustache. When he comes up onto the stage to see Anna when they are done playing, where is it?

Correction: Jake does not have a mustache throughout the entire House of Blues scene, it's probably the lighting that gives such an impression.

Corrected entry: Numerous times in the movie it shows the characters driving past the ocean, they specifically say they live in LA. The ocean is a good 2 hours from LA.

Correction: LA or LA county? Tess goes shopping down town Santa Monica. That's LA county and it's on the beach. They where driving on the PCH, which is consistent.

Corrected entry: When Tess firsts wakes up in Anna's body she's really confused about what happened and Harry comes to the room to tell say "mom's not waking up". Then she follows him into Tess's room, when she is about to enter Tess's room you can see the shadow of the camera man on the door.

Correction: The shadow belongs to Lindsay Lohan, her "brother's" shadow appears on the door as he enters the room and since it is her point of view, it is correct for her to shadow to appear as well.

Corrected entry: When Anna goes to close the door after she was disturbingly woke up by Harry, she runs out of the room and there are a few clothes on the floor by the foot of her bed, in the next shot she has more and different clothes on the floor by the bed.

Correction: She shuts the door so she can get dressed. She must have thrown more clothes on the floor of her room, trying to decide what to wear. The new clothes may have covered up the old clothes, or Anna could have shoved them under the bed.

Corrected entry: When Jake drives off on his motorcycle after Tess (in Anna's body) erases Stacy Hinkhouse's answers on her honors qualifying exam, he is wearing a watch. In the coffee shop, his watch is gone. When he appears at the house of Blues he is wearing his watch again.

Correction: There is a long period of time between these scenes.He could have easily taken the watch off.

Corrected entry: At the wedding rehearsal Anna (Tess) leaves for The House of Blues. Then Tess (Anna) leaves. Once they get there how does Jake get there before them?

Correction: When Tess is with Ryan questioning her friends about the "abuse" on Anna, they show Jake sneaking out from behind them. You just have to figure he went there before ANY of them.

Corrected entry: As we see in the scene when Anna [in Tess' body] is at the office, she says, "Whoa, she's blind." When she reads the piece of paper. Yet, when she reads the paper that Harry wrote, she does not have to adjust the paper so she can read it.

Correction: She doesn't have to adjust it because it is already at arms' length, she can see it.


She does adjust it, but for a split second. Watch closely.

Corrected entry: In the scene Where Anna comes into her room and sees her brother pounding sticks on her guitar, the guitar is in her room. After she is done chasing her brother around, she goes into the garage to play her guitar with the band, but the guitar is already in the garage.

Correction: Yes, that is strange. But they didn't show the part between when Anna fights with her brother. There was obviously time between the end of this scene and the scene in the garage because she tied underwear onto her brothers' head. She would have had time to get her guitar and go downstairs and start practice.

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, they are riding in the Volvo, and Tess tells Anna to fix her shirt. But later in the movie, when they are switched,Tess discovers that Anna pierced her navel a while back. How could Tess not see the piercing when Anna's navel was showing? And why would she not say something?

Correction: Just because she pierced her navel does not mean she always wears a belly button ring. She probably knew her mother would freak and was smart to take off the navel ring.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Dr. Tess Coleman is giving an interview about her book 'Through the Looking Glass', on the wall behind Tess and the interviewer there is a blown up picture of the book. A few shots later the picture changes to a photograph of Tess.

Correction: Interview shows on TV often change the picture the audience is looking at during the interview.


Corrected entry: Jamie Lee Curtis drives the Volvo into the bank parking lot going the wrong way (into the exit). The tires hit the steel teeth in the pavement, resulting in two flat tires and air bag deployment. In reality, this action would not cause the air bags to inflate.

Correction: She also hit the black car that was exiting the parking lot which caused the air bag to deploy.


Corrected entry: The girls discover that the English teacher is picking on Anna because he was rejected by her mother when he was in high school. However, there is no apparent way that he would have known who her mother was. Her mother, when she attended the class in her daughter's body, hadn't met him since high school. Additionally, when making the speech at the party, the mother/daughter says they lost a good husband and father, so she would have had a different last name.

Correction: The husband/father died only 3 years ago and the mom hadn't yet remarried, so she would've had the same name. Also, teachers have access to school records so if the teacher noticed the last name, he could look it up and check the mother's name.

When Dr. Coleman wakes up in Anna's body, as Lindsey Lohan exits her room her bedroom door is still removed, but a few seconds after she runs out of the room after Harry the door has been re-attached.



Marc McClure, who plays the delivery driver named Boris actually played Anna's (she was then called Annabelle) crush, Boris, in the original "Freaky Friday" (1976).
