While they are fighting they jump onto a table and it breaks. If you look into the backround, you see Jason and his 2 friends turn around because they heard the noise of the table breaking and the girls fighting, and Jason's friend on the right puts his hand on Jason. When the camera changes shots his hand is on his heart.

Continuity mistake: When Regina is by her car after Cady's party, Regina says something about the Caltine bars and her boyfriend says that they are for weight gain. Regina spits it out and at one point you can see her boyfriend putting his cup up to his lips, then the shot changes to the other side of the car and his arms are down straight.

Continuity mistake: During the dance scene, the captain of the Mathletes goes up to Cady's friend Janice and starts dancing with her. At first she's smiling, but the next shot shows her with a straight face. (01:31:15)


Continuity mistake: In the 'Jingle Bell Rock' scene, right after Gretchen kicks the stereo off the stage, you see her feet, and they are both symmetrical next to each other, then when you see her again one of her feet is behind the other.Gretchen does not move at all between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Regina is talking to Cady about Janis, Cady is wearing a light blue ribbon in her hair. As the scenes cut in and out of Cady the ribbon changes from front to back a few times.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Cady is chasing Damien's car and talking to Janis, when Janis says 'he still doesn't want you' two extras in dark clothing walk up a pathway behind Cady. However when the shot cuts back to her, they have totally vanished. Even though they were wearing dark clothing, you'd still be able to have seen them, and there was not enough time between the different shots for them to have walked into the house.
