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 Stan and Kathy call out the Top 10, they only call out 7 names, leaving out Miss Nebraska, Miss Vermont and Miss Ohio, who are also part of the Top 10. (01:23:45)

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.

Continuity mistake: After Gracie is given the title of Miss Congeniality, Miss Texas (with her broken nose) and some others go up to hug her. As Miss Texas is hugging Gracie up at the podium in the first shot, the very next shot is a close-up of Victor and Matthews in the 'audience', and seen right in front of them in the audience is Miss Texas.

Trivia: At the preliminaries, Stan asks of Miss Rhode Island, "Describe your perfect date" and Cheryl answers oddly, "April 25th."

Question: I heard in the DVD commentary that what the Russian gangsters are saying in the beginning is total bull, because they ran out of time to translate the actual dialogue. Is there anyone from Russia, or who speaks Russian, that can understand what they are saying?

Answer: Yes, I can speak Russian, and what they said in the movie did make sense but they spoke so horribly it was almost impossible to understand them. But it wasn't bull.
