Continuity mistake: When the four girls are back at the graveyard for the third time trying to talk to Dear Johnny and put him back in his grave, they see the lights and the headstone float out in front of them, with nothing holding onto it. Then in the next shot there are chains around it, from the tractor that is holding it in mid air.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, when the old Teeny and Samantha are swinging on the swings, they're rocking next to each other. The next scene, one is in the front, the other's in the back, then they're next to each other again. (00:09:00)

Continuity mistake: When Roberta falls over on the road after missing her dive onto Scott on his bike, a man ahead with a briefcase hurries across the road before one of the other Wormers can cycle into him, and another one of the Wormers cycles ahead of him. After Roberta vows revenge on the Wormers, and when Scott yells back at her, the man is seen crossing the road again at a steady pace with all four of the Wormers coming before him.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie Chrissy is curling her hair, her hair remains tightly curled while in the house. When she goes out to greet the other girls her hair looks brushed out, definitely not tight curls. Then, when they all go inside, her hair is back to tight curls.

Continuity mistake: Between the first shots of Sam at dinner, she lays her fork on her plate, yet in the next shot it's jumped back into her hand. (00:54:15)

Teeny: Chrissy, truth or dare?
Chrissy: Truth.
Teeny: Have you ever been french kissed?
Chrissy: Are you kidding? I don't want to get pregnant!
Roberta: You can't get pregnant from french-kissing!
Chrissy: I know that, beetle-brain, but it's common knowledge that if you tongue-kiss a boy, he automatically thinks you'll do the deed with him. They can't help it. They're driven. It's the male curse.
