Miss Congeniality

Other mistake: First glimpse of the San Antonio venue, and there's a long shot of the entrance, showing a few people at the door. As the camera pans back, a girl in the centre of the shot spots the camera, staring right at it, and even shades her eyes from the sun to get a better look. (00:34:00)

Other mistake: In the first scene where they show the talents (they are outdoors) there's a girl playing the flute. For all you musically inclined, she takes a noticeable breath while the note is still playing. (00:52:10)

Other mistake: When Gracie falls down when she is getting on the bus to go to breakfast, if you turn the caption on it says that Mrs. Morningside called her Miss. Greenbush when her name is suppose to be Freebush.

Revealing mistake: Gracie hugs the Russian waitress in order to have a better view of the disc hand-off appear on the monitor. As she raises her left hand that holds the book/camera lens, we see that the digital feed that appears on the monitor stays steady and level, even though she is raising the book/camera lens higher and closer to her face. Obviously the feed that we see on the monitor is not taken from the book/camera lens. (00:04:10)

Trivia: At the preliminaries, Stan asks of Miss Rhode Island, "Describe your perfect date" and Cheryl answers oddly, "April 25th." Marc Lawrence the screenwriter says in the DVD commentary that it's an actual answer given by a contestant in a pageant, that he found in research for the film. (01:05:40)

Question: In the scene where Hart finds out about the Citizen being caught, when she and Matthews are arguing, Matthews says ,"You're not the only one who lives his life for the job..." Clearly he says HIS, as though both him and Hart would fall under that category. Is this a mistake, or is it supposed to be there?

Answer: It is supposed to be there. There are numerous references to Matthews (and the other agents) simply referring to Hart as one of the guys or even just as a guy.
