Continuity mistake: Pay attention to the lunchroom scene at the beginning of the movie. As Molly Shannon sits down, she is seen opening a bottle of water. The next time you see her the bottle is in the shot but the lid has never been taken off. The next time you see her, the bottle is nowhere to be found. (00:04:50)
Continuity mistake: After George has put the wings on Josie's lapel, he waves his hand in front of the pin to make sure it works. As Josie gets out of the van, you can see on the screen that her pin is working. However, after she leaves the van, George has to turn on the TV screen and adjust some knobs before he picks up the video. (00:36:25)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Aldys and Josie drive by The Court, Guy comes up and makes fun of Aldys. Watch each shot angle in that scene. First Guy comes up and looks in through the window. Then when the camera changes angles, he has his arms resting on the window frame, and it goes back and forth through out that part. (00:30:35)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Josie is talking to the 'Popular' girls in the canteen on her first day you see a couple walk past behind her on the left (a man in a blue shirt and a girl in a sixties style dress). When Guy turns up, the couple walk past again in the same direction. This happens again with the same couple outside at the end of shool when Josie and Aldys are talking about their names. You see this couple a bunch of times during the movie. (00:20:20 - 00:22:00)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the first board meeting is taking place, Anita has on dark lipstick, which you can see while she is licking the pencil. Afterward, when Josie runs out, Anita follows and when they reach Josie's office, you can see that Anita has no dark lipstick on at all. (00:08:20 - 00:09:10)
Continuity mistake: In the part when Josie doing sprints in gym class, she stops and holds on to the gym teacher's shoulders, with both hands, and begs for water. When the camera switches to behind the gym teachers head, Josie's hands aren't on the gym teacher's shoulders. When the camera goes back to behind Josie's back, her hands are back on the gym teacher's shoulders again. This happens several more times throughout the movie. (00:21:30)
Continuity mistake: This mistake happens when Josie is at the 'Tiki Post' with Rob. When she is talking about how she gets to go back to high school, the strap of her handbag is across her chest, then the camera shoots to Rob and you can see Josie still in the camera's view and she doesn't move. But when they shoot back to Josie the strap of her back has moved. (00:11:20)
Continuity mistake: In the movie there is a scene where Drew Barrymore is remembering high school. It shows a boy walking towards her holding a Pepsi One can. Pepsi One was invented in the late nineties and would not have been around during the time this scene was supposed to have taken place. (00:13:20)
Continuity mistake: In the scene when George first begins to flip on the monitors in the van on the first day of his surveillance of Josie, he is not wearing headphones. In the shot that immediately follows, it changes to another angle of George and headphones suddenly appear on his head.Steph_Jared
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Josie walks out of the house and sees Guy pulling up in the limo, the part in her hair changes from one shot to the next.
Continuity mistake: In the lunchroom scene where Josie is telling her coworkers what a "real" kiss should feel like, the amount of sunlight coming in through the window changes between shots. In one shot, Josie's hair and face are matte, but in other shots her hair and the left side of her face is illuminated by sunlight. All the shots in this scene appear to have been filmed at different times of the day.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Josie and Aldys pull up to the court, the sidewalk beside the car is completely deserted. In the far distance, you can see people hanging out and congregating around garbage cans. Then in the very next shot, Guy is suddenly knocking on Josie's window. There's no way he would've had time to make it all the way from the congregation of people to the car that quickly.
Continuity mistake: In the pie-throwing scene, the camera shows the blond football player getting hit in the face with the first pie at the beginning of the contest. In the next shot, there are several pies sticking to the wall as if the contest had been going on for a while.
Sam: All I can tell you is that when you're my age, guys will be lined up around the corner for you.
Josie Geller: You have to say that because you're my teacher.
Sam: Actually, I shouldn't say that because I'm your teacher.
