Continuity mistake: When Yiayia dunks Lena's head in the water, Lena's hair changes without her moving it.

Factual error: In Bridget's scrimmage scene she dribbles the ball all the way down the field to score a goal. However, the defenders of the other team were running away from her. In a real soccer game of that level the defenders would have been all over Bridget.

Continuity mistake: In the scene just after arriving at her grandparent's home, Lena is drawing and you see a good portion of the picture shaded in and yet the next shot of the drawing is only the penciled outline of the shaded areas. (00:52:40)


Visible crew/equipment: When Carmen is eating with her family you can see a crew member reflected on the glass window.


Continuity mistake: When the pants are being shipped from Tibby to Carmen, the mail clerk at the Atlanta Post Office applies two stickers - one large and one small - to the damaged package. In the next shot the stickers have switched places. (00:48:30)

Continuity mistake: When Lena packs up her things before heading home, she grabs hold of a bunch of paint brushes (in a rubber band) and knocks over a mug with more brushes. When she kneels to pick them up, she sees Bridget's letter and leaves the bunch of brushes on the rug, but in the next shot the brushes are back in her hand. (01:36:25)

Continuity mistake: When Lena's grandmother first sees she hugs her tightly around her neck in the close-up, but in the next overhead shot Lena's arms are over her grandmother's arms. (00:13:45)

Continuity mistake: When Lena falls into the sea and Kostas rescues her, the ragged tear on the jeans' pant leg is about 3-4 inches long, where it caught on the hook. At the end, when the girls' various embellishments on the pants are shown, Lena's reads "Hooked on Kostas" with a stitched heart around what is now a very small, tidy looking hole. (00:21:30)

Continuity mistake: After the wedding, when the friends are in the gazebo seated at a table following the dinner, just as we hear "Together and apart" the level of liquid in Bridget's glass increases and suddenly there is a tulle bow wrapped around the back of Carmen's chair. (01:50:15)

Bailey: Hey, it's me, Bailey. You don't have to use this in your movie or anything, although now that I think of it, fainting in Wallman's does kind of qualify me as a loser. But then again, wearing a price sticker on your forehead probably makes you one, too. Ya know, I don't know, Tibby, maybe the truth is there's a little bit of loser in all of us, ya know? Being happy isn't having everything in your life be perfect. Maybe it's about stringing together all the little things like wearing these pants or getting to a new level of Dragon's Lair - making those count for more than the bad stuff. Maybe we just get through it... And that's all we can ask for.
