High School Musical 3: Senior Year

Continuity mistake: At Riley's Garage, when Troy and Chad are about to rummage through the junk looking for the radiator cap, Troy raises his arms and his boxers are light grey, but next shot when he lifts the truck's hood his boxers are black. It's also noteworthy to mention that during "Boys Are Back," young Troy is wearing patterned boxers, though all other clothing is identical.

Deliberate mistake: At graduation, after Troy is handed the diploma, in the overhead shot the graduates on the left and right stand-up from their seats, then turn and walk towards each other. All their seats simply disappear between shots. Obviously done deliberately for the dance sequence, but a mistake nonetheless.

Continuity mistake: When Gabriella holds up the toy Robot Rob to Troy, the robot's left arm sticks out in one shot, but is down to its side in the next.

Continuity mistake: When Troy is focused on the game at the beginning, his hair is soaking wet due to sweat perhaps, but when he is in the locker room during half time, his hair is dry. (00:01:55 - 00:02:45)

Other mistake: When Tiara hands Sharpay the bag with the latte you can see that there is nothing in the bag, especially at the end of the scene when Sharpay tosses the bag behind her back. It would have spilled if there really was a latte in there.

Continuity mistake: At the graduation, during the song High School Musical the staff members are standing on the stage while clapping along, but in the next shot the staff members are no longer on the stage, then they are back on stage.

Continuity mistake: When Taylor reads Gabriella's letter from Stanford University, the envelope in her hand is vertical, then horizontal and back to vertical.

Continuity mistake: At Riley's Garage, after Troy finds the radiator cap he lifts the truck's hood and tosses the red t-shirt onto the engine. Once he removes the duct tape and places the cap on, back to the side shot the t-shirt has changed position.

Continuity mistake: When Troy surprises Gabriella from behind he pulls her into the treehouse, and as they stand at the center holding hands, behind Gabriella is the brass bell (which is at the doorway they sat in front of earlier) and behind Troy are two model airplanes. In the next two shots as the ceiling opens, though the couple have not moved, now the airplanes are behind Gabriella and the brass bell is behind Troy, but they revert back to their original positions in the final shot inside the treehouse.

Visible crew/equipment: After Gabriella and Troy convince everyone to stick with the musical, when Ms. Darbus asks everyone to line up she walks to stage left (viewer's right) and steps behind her white mark, on the otherwise clean stage floor.

Continuity mistake: After Kelsi signs everyone up, and they stand around the piano complaining, in the shots facing Gabriella her hands are on the piano to the left and right of the notepad. In the shots facing Kelsi, Gabriella stands to the side of the notepad.

Deliberate mistake: Troy and Chad drive into Riley's Auto Salvage and park the truck beside the trailer office (which Riley steps out of), near a tow truck. During "Boys Are Back", just after the shot with the female silhouette and the line "Save the girl," in the next shot Chad and Troy run past the trailer office, but Troy's truck has vanished. No worries, because the truck is back beside the tow truck after the song. (00:56:50)

Continuity mistake: After their musical number during the show, when Troy hands Gabrielle the bouquet of roses, the white ribbon is either higher up in the close-ups or lower down in the wideshots.

Continuity mistake: On the treehouse, when Troy helps Gabriella up during their song, "Chad's" red cape, which is draped to the floor, and Robo Rob are visible behind them on the windowsill. In the next shot as Troy removes his sweatshirt, only a bit of the cape is draped over and the toy has moved farther away from the window's frame. When they turn the corner, we can see that more of the cape is draped on the inside of the treehouse again. (00:11:40)

Continuity mistake: In the musical number at graduation, Ryan's shirt un-tucks and re-tucks several times during the dancing.

Continuity mistake: When Sharpay appears at Troy's locker to let it slip about Gabriella's 'Freshman Honors Program', Troy's notebook changes position. Such as, the front of Troy's notebook (with the Wildcat sticker) faces out, but in a close-up the back (cardboard color) faces out.
