Question: When Jenna has turned 30 and is going to the magazine party she has a dress on then asks her 13 year old neighbour if she can see her underwear to which the girl replies something like "I think that's the point." They then smile and laugh to themselves. Could anyone explain this joke?

Answer: Jenna asked the girl, "Can you tell I'm wearing underwear? Because I totally am". This is because when she was 13 just a day before, she was wearing big underwear. Now she's wearing a thong, which wouldn't be visible when wearing a dress.

Question: Is there any reason why the title of the movie was changed to "Suddenly 30" for the Australian release?

Answer: As I understand it, the film distributors were afraid the Australian audiences wouldn't know what "13 Going On 30" meant (possibly "going on" in that context was too American), so they changed it to something more understandable.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film, Mattie hands Jenna the dream house he made for her 13th birthday. There is hardly any "wishing dust" on the roof. However, when she goes outside and sits on her front porch, there is plenty of wishing dust all over the roof of the toy house now.
