Continuity mistake: At the end of the film when Miss Rhode Island is crowned Gracie tries to take the crown from her. Miss Rhode Island beats her with her bouquet of roses. All of the blossoms are knocked off of the stems. A few seconds later when Gracie is fighting Miss Texas the blossoms are back on the roses that Cheryl, Miss Rhode Island is holding. (01:35:00)
Continuity mistake: When Gracie Hart is trying to tell Eric Matthews that she thinks she's cracked the ransom note's cryptic message, ("It's the Miss United States Pageant") you see a corsage hanging from her blazer. The appearance of the corsage is never explained and it disappears as quickly as it is shown. If you watch the movie's deleted scenes, you'll see that she attends her father's wedding ceremony, which was edited out of the final cut of the film. She wears a corsage in this scene. (00:14:45)
Continuity mistake: As McDonald leaves the FBI briefing room, after Matthews is put in charge, in the first wide shot as Gracie stands up to follow McDonald, the four clocks on the wall are seen. In the subsequent close-up, as she follows McDonald out, the clocks are seen again and there is a VERY big difference in the times shown in both shots. (00:12:40)Super Grover
Revealing mistake: Miss Missouri is seen boarding the bus first and she is a white woman, with dark short hair. Later onstage, when Miss Hawaii says, "World Peace," to her left is Miss Missouri and she is a very tall African-American woman who is seen quite a few times during the pageant with the entire Missouri sash showing prominently. The white woman is actually Miss Kentucky later at the orientation breakfast. (00:36:50 - 01:04:35)
Continuity mistake: While Gracie and Cheryl are talking in Gracie's hotel room, the telephone on the nightstand between the two beds is on the right side of the lamp, and Miss Texas is lying down with the burgundy robe over her matching nightgown. When Gracie gets into bed, in this shot the telephone is now on the left side of the lamp and Miss Texas doesn't have the robe on. (00:44:45)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: At her apartment, in the close-up Gracie turns on her stereo and we see the table, office chair, plus a cap with an insignia and two video tapes are lying on top of the TV. In the next two wide shots as she boxes, the chair's in a different position, no cap with insignia and no video tapes are on top of the TV. (00:08:20)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: There is a scene where Cheryl is bringing hot chocolate to Gracie. Cheryl knocks, and Gracie looks through the peephole. In this shot, you can see that the hallway is white with a door on the far right. However, when Gracie opens the door, the hallway has changed completely; the walls are now a peachy color and there is a painting on the left. (00:43:10)
Continuity mistake: When the ladies are on the way to the breakfast and they start to sing the Miss United States song, they show a shot of the ladies seated in the back of the bus and you can clearly see the girls in red that were handing out pamphlets. When they show the shot of the bus taking off, the girls aren't behind the bus as clearly seen in the shot before. (00:38:10)
Continuity mistake: When Gracie walks down and up the stairs, she gives her weapons to Vic. Look at the handcuffs on Vic's finger. First they're around his finger, held in the palm of his hand, in the next shot they're outside his hand, in the next shot they're in his palm again, then in the next shot they're outside his hand yet again.
