Visible crew/equipment: In the big game of Red Rover at the beginning of the film, as Bobby runs over to the four girls, in one shot all of the four girls tape markers on the grass are extremely noticeable. Sam is standing on a red one, Chrissy on a blue one, Roberta on a green one and Teeny on a yellow one. They're obviously gone in all the following shots.
Continuity mistake: After Sam's dad leaves, Sam gets out of bed, grabs her poncho and shoes and puts a bag over her shoulder. She puts her poncho and shoes out through the curtains twice, and as she climbs through and jumps out of the window, the bag has vanished from her shoulder.
Continuity mistake: When Chrissy, Teeny and Sam are standing near the barbecue and table of food talking, they turn to walk over to the foldout chairs and swings. As they turn around you can see by the tree are two flowery foldout chairs next to each other. But in the next shot when they walk over there, there's now a small flowery footstool in between the two chairs.
Continuity mistake: When the girls go to visit Sam's grandma, she has only two glasses of lemonade ready. When she sees the other girls, she says 'Let's find some more glasses.' She's away for about five seconds and comes back with five full glasses. Are we expected to believe she got to the kitchen, got the three extra glasses and filled them with lemonade all in five seconds?
Audio problem: When Teeny and Sam are on the swings, talking with Chrissy and Roberta, a few lines of Teeny and Sam's dialouge is either out of sync or completely dubbed with/over their lip movements. Also, in one shot Teeny is heard laughing, yet her mouth is closed tight.

Continuity mistake: When the girls are searching through books in the library, Roberta tells everyone to come and look at an article. Whilst getting up, in one shot the book in front of Samantha is open on a page full of both text and pictures. In the following shot the page is just all text.
Continuity mistake: In the big game of Red Rover in shots of the four girls discussing who to pick, they are standing in complete sunshine with no shade around them. Then when Bobby is running over to them, the whole area of field around the four girls is now in shade. It's then completely sunny again when the girls start cheering because they beat Bobby.
Continuity mistake: When the girls are in Sam's grandma's attic, Roberta finds a scrap book and says to Sam "Sam I think I found something," and Sam comes and sits next to her. In the wideshot you can see the page they're on has just one large newspaper article glued onto it. However in the following closeup, as she turns the page, you can see the page is different, and has three small seperate newspaper articles glued onto it.
Plot hole: When the girls are looking through the old newspapers in the library, Roberta stumbles upon the newspaper's story of her mother's death. But this takes place in 1970; Roberta's mother died when she was four, meaning her death occured in 1962. Yet they were looking for Dear Johnny's death, which happened in 1945. Why would she be looking at 1962 papers?
Continuity mistake: Near the beginning, when Demi Moore and Melanie Griffith are coming into the house of Rita Wilson, Demi Moore and Melanie Griffith are standing on one side of the room and Rita Wilson is standing with Rosie O'Donnell on the other side of the room. If the camera shows Rita Wilson and Rosie O'Donnell from behind, Rosie O'Donnell is standing a little bit behind Rita Wilson, but if the camera shows Rosie O'Donnell and Rita Wilson from the side they are standing in a line.
Continuity mistake: In her Grandma's attic, Sam opens a trunk. In the wideshot there is a little box opened, with nothing on the lid. It cuts to a wideshot and there are photos laying on the lid. Then moments later, Sam goes to pick up a large red scrap book. It cuts to a closeup, and she's now holding some newspaper sheets.
Continuity mistake: When Teeny, Samantha, and Chrissy save Roberta from the water and they pull her onto the sand, Chrissy punches Roberta. When it shows Roberta moaning, you can clearly see that Roberta has a white towel wrapped around her waist. Then you can see that Chrissy has one too. But when they show a view of them far away they don't have towels.
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.
Revealing mistake: It is obvious that when Sam is in her bed reading her book with a torch, that a set light is being shone at her face and that the glow doesn't come from the torch, because she turns the torch away from her and puts it on the bed, but a soft glow of light remains on her face for some seconds.
Continuity mistake: When the girls are at the diner, talking about how the waitress Wiladene is "off", Teeny has one hand on her Cosmo and one holding the pencil marking the answers, but in the next shot when Teeny says "What do you expect? She's a witch" her hand is just touching the edge of the table.
Continuity mistake: When the girls are riding their bikes to the library, Chrissy's hair is up in pig-tails with pink bows. In the next scene when the go under the train bridge, her hair is down without any bows. Then when they come under the bridge, Chrissy's hair is pulled back into the two pig-tails with bows.
Other mistake: Watch when the bird poops in Chrissie's hair. From the camera angle above them, you can see that Chrissie not directly underneath where the bird is perched. The next shot shows the bird poop falling directly below the branch. The next shot after that shows the poop in Chrissie's hair. Judging by the position Chrissie was in, in relation to where the bird was, this is impossible.
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: 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.
Revealing mistake: After the girls have seen the boys skinny dipping in the pond and have stolen their clothes, the boys run after them. Devon Sawa bends down to pick up his underwear but you can see he has a flesh coloured "modesty pouch" on under his towel, when he is supposed to be naked.
