Legally Blonde

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Elle is talking to Emmet out on the benches, after she turns to face him you can see two people in jeans and sweater vests exiting the building twice.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Elle and her two friends are jumping up and down because they are excited about the road trip, one of the girl's sleeves falls down, in the next scene it's up again.

Continuity mistake: When Elle turns around to talk to Warner in the hallway, a guy in a beige sweater and a woman in a red sweater pass by them. After they've passed, the camera switches back to Warner, and we see them pass by the two again. (00:24:45)

Continuity mistake: When Elle Woods gets to Harvard, stood outside, her nails are manicured. She mentions that Bruiser looks parched, and as she pours Evian water into the bowl, her nails not manicured, but natural and filed. They then go back to being manicured before entering the building.

Continuity mistake: At the scene where Elle is shopping with her two friends for an outfit to wear, the saleswoman gives her a red cloth. Look at Elle's rear reflection in the mirror. There's a lot of hair at the back of her neck, but in the next shot, only a single strand is left at her neck. (00:04:35)


Continuity mistake: When Margo is picking out her wedding dress, Serena has short hair, but in the courtroom scene, she has long hair. (00:38:40 - 01:22:00)

Audio problem: In the scene after Reese Witherspoon and Luke Wilson are returning from questioning the ex-wife of the murder victim at a spa, they are driving up in Luke's car. You can clearly see, as they get closer to the camera, that what you hear Luke saying isn't what his lips are saying. It was a very obvious dub over...and a very bad one.

Elle: And last week I saw Cameron Diaz at Fred Segal, and I talked her out of buying this truly heinous angora sweater. Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed.

Trivia: Although many people may not catch it, the "Harvard" in which the movie is set is actually the University of Southern California campus. If you look very closely in the background, the University's trademark buildings are visible.
