Sex and the City: The Movie mistake picture

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Big and Carrie meet in their cars after Big fled the wedding you can see down the street in the distance a huge amount of SATC fans have gathered to watch the filming.

Continuity mistake: When Miranda takes a sip of her latte in the restaurant scene with Steve, only half of her upper lip has foam on it. In the next shot of her it is covering the whole of her upper lip. The same happens to the foam on Steve's lip when he mimics her.

00:24:50

Continuity mistake: When the girls are at the restaurant in Mexico and the waiter brings over the drinks, he first hands Charlotte the bottled water and then hands Samantha the drink. The camera pans back to the waiter holding the drinks and the bottle of water is still there along with 2 other drinks.

Continuity mistake: When Carrie is feeling depressed in Mexico and is being fed food in bed by Samantha, there is a tea pot on the tray on the bed. The scene changes back and forth between Samantha and Carrie and each time it changes, the style of the tea pot completely changes. When it's a shot of Samantha, it's a regular tea pot with a lid, and when it's a shot of Carrie, it changes to an art deco style pot with no lid whatsoever.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Carrie and Big are in bed (Carrie is reading the Love Letters) the library card Carrie uses as a bookmark keeps changing position. She opens the book and holds the card behind the book cover, then when you see a close-up of the text you can see the card is being held inside the book. Then it's back behind the book cover.

00:22:25

Other mistake: In the scene where Carrie is reading bits of love letters to Big, she reads from a letter from Napoleon to Josephine and uses the line "I awake consumed with you".In Napoleon's actual letter he wrote "I awake filled with you" and for a brief moment you see the book Carrie is reading from, which shows the correct text.

00:22:05

Continuity mistake: When Samantha is lying on the table covered in sushi and the phone rings, she moves and the piece of sushi on her shoulder falls down. There is a visible piece of double sided stick tape there to hold the sushi in place. In the scene time elapses, but it is understood Samantha never leaves the table and remains covered in sushi. When the shot returns to her close up, the piece of tape has been removed from her shoulder.

Visible crew/equipment: Early into the film, the girls walk on the street next to a white window shop. The reflection of the opposite sidewalk is that of a wooden barrier with hundreds of people (fans? Crew members?) behind; but when the angle changes, the barrier is gone and the sidewalk is filled with passers by.

Plot hole: While the wedding party is getting ready to leave Charlotte's apartment, Big calls Carrie's cell phone. Lily (Charlotte's young daughter) answers, immediately closes it without speaking, then drops the phone into her purse that she takes with her to the wedding. Big continually calls back, but even though Lily is always with one of her parents, no can hear Carrie's phone is ringing inside Lily's purse. Lily only closed the phone, it was not turned off, the ringer was turned up, and the battery was charged. Lily and Harry rode to the library separately and during the time Big had been trying to call Carrie. Harry should have heard the phone.

Continuity mistake: In the extended scenes of the movie when the four girls are trying on Carrie's clothes from the eighties, they are sitting on the bed together watching Lily coming out of the bathroom draped in numerous handbags. They have all changed back into their normal clothes, but when Lily continues to walk closer to the girls, the angle changes and the four girls are back in Carrie's outfits again, dancing around in the bedroom.

Continuity mistake: When Louise calls Carrie from the bridal salon, her little sister is visible in the mirror's reflection as she holds Louise's Louis Vuitton bag on her lap. In the reflection the back of the Louis Vuitton bag faces out, but in the sister's close-up the bag's distinctive front faces out, then in the next shot it's the back again.

Continuity mistake: Whene Louise leaves to get married she puts the brown envelopes in the left drawer/cupboard, furthest from the TV. When she goes to look for them in a later scene they are in the left drawer/cupboard, nearest the TV.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the four ladies are sitting around the pool in Mexico, talking about Miranda's lack of waxing, keep an eye on the magazine that Charlotte is holding. Just as Miranda walks away, the open page on the left side of the magazine is a red page advertising what looks like a perfume. As she leans forward to say, "really," the page changes immediately to a white page. Then after Carrie makes her "Mexicoma" joke, the shot goes back to Charlotte and Samantha, and the magazine Charlotte has open is now on a blueish picture. Not enough time to change the pages.

Continuity mistake: During Carrie's personal assistant interview with the Asian man, in the shot facing Carrie her papers and coffee cup are centered on the table in front of her, but as the camera pans down to the man's pink high heels the items are at the corner of the table.

Plot hole: In the scene where Louise gives Carrie her new phone, she tells Carrie of her new phone number and Carrie gets upset because she has lost her old 917 prefix; but all Carrie did was throw her phone away into the ocean, she didn't have to change her number. I'm sure, as here, in New York people lose or break their phones constantly. It's just a chance to explain why Big hasn't got her number - her new number - so he couldn't call her and apologise (but what about her home phone number; that wouldn't have changed - Big would know that number, surely).

Continuity mistake: At the Italian restaurant, when Miranda explains that she has a brief to work on at home, Magda lifts her glass of water with her left hand, but in the shot facing her she holds it in her right hand, then it's back in her left hand again.

Continuity mistake: During the champagne-filled "take-or-toss it" scene, when Carrie models the tutu dress, the closed blue bathroom door behind her opens itself, and then closes again, between shots.

Other mistake: Charlotte's dog had puppies during the show's final season and in the last episode we saw her and Harry walking them all. All the pups looked like pure-bred Cavalier King Charles spaniels (like their mother), even though they were mongrels. In the movie, the dogs are completely different and appear to be long-haired Jack Russells.

Suggested correction: It does show him placing the toothbrush down on the counter. You can see his eyes quickly look to the right and you can see his right arm slightly move a little as he places the toothbrush down on the counter just before he embraces Carrie.

Other mistake: In the "fashion show" that takes place as Carrie is packing, neither Miranda nor Samantha could even begin to fit into Carrie's clothes.

Character mistake: At the rehearsal dinner, when Steve walks up to Miranda she calls Steve "Dave." Dave is his real name.
