Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen

Audio problem: When Lola is on stage performing Eliza Rocks, she turns her head away from the audience and quickly whips it back. As she is turning her head away her lips are not moving, but the song continues.

Continuity mistake: When Lola's Mother finally acknowledges her as being Lola, she is seen walking backward towards a green door. The camera moves to Lola, then back to the Mother where there are now two backstage people standing behind her, in front of the green door.

Other mistake: Near the beginning of the movie when Lola and her family are in the car driving to New Jersey, the car gear shift lever is in park.

Continuity mistake: When the kids are auditioning for parts in the play, the kids in the seats during Lola's audition change positions throughout different shots. (00:15:55 - 00:19:30)

Factual error: When the family is driving from New York to New Jersey, you see a highway sign for the exit for New Jersey. In the background is a Dofasco building which is in Hamilton, Ontario, very far from New York or New Jersey.

Continuity mistake: Lola's necklace changes between shots from a choker to a long necklace several times throughout the movie.

Continuity mistake: When Lindsay Lohan searches through literally a pile of clothes her blonde friend suddenly feels guilty about lying to her parents. During the following discussion on the bed the camera changes angle frequently. Although at the lower end of the scale of continuity error, you can see that the facial expressions of the blonde girl differ frequently from shot to shot, not in line with the continuity of the scene. (00:32:45 - 00:33:20)

Lola: Here's what I learned: when you're happy, the whole world's New York. And that dreams are important. Someday, when you're not even looking, they find you.
Lola: It was the first time I realised that absolute reality could be so much more fun than fantasy.

More quotes from Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen

Question: Why did Carla put on the red dress when she was going to take over the role of Eliza in the play, since the first act started with the outfit Lola was already wearing?

Answer: My only guess is that she had to make sure the dress fit before the play, or adjustments had to be made on the dress so it would fit her.

Answer: Lola mentions her mum taking her allowance in August or September. That means they're in the month of July which is summer break for America.
