Mean Girls

Revealing mistake: When Ms. Norbury spills coffee all over her shirt, you can see the hand that is to the left is pulling her shirt up with her sweater and rapidly lets go.

Revealing mistake: Regina writes comments about herself in the Burn Book, at the top of the page in red marker. Later, when Mr Duvall has the book, he opens it saying "Why would Regina refer to herself..." and he then looks at the page and reads "As a Fugly Slut?" However, watch as Mr Duvall opens the Burn Book - the page he has it opened at is blank at the top and there is no writing on it at all. (01:00:15 - 01:02:25)

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Mrs George is taking pictures of the girls for the Christmas concert you can see that the camera is turned off.

Revealing mistake: When the Plastics are walking down the hallway together, Cady falls into a trashcan. The trashcan stays upright, but it should tip over from the way she went in, the momentum and her bodyweight. Just a few shots prior to this, a janitor, on the left side of the screen, is seen moving that trash can, so it is apparent that it is not bolted to the ground. (00:44:00)

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.

Regina: I know she's kind of socially retarded and weird, but she's my friend... So, just promise me you won't make fun of her! (00:01:00)
