Revealing mistake: When Meredith meets Nick and Elizabeth at the pool, Hallie comes up on her left and says, 'Hi, Mer.' Then Annie comes up on her right and says, 'How's it going?' Meredith shrieks as she looks from one girl to the other and you can tell that Annie is not really there, because Meredith is looking over her head rather than directly at her face, which she does with Hallie.
Continuity mistake: When Hallie and Annie are in the isolation cabin, you see the bucket that the water is dripping into from the leak in the roof, on a stack of books. After the wind blows all of Hallie's pictures off the wall they are sitting on the ground picking them up, Annie is seen picking up Hallie's little animal (Cuppie) right next to the bucket of water, which is now on the ground with no stack of books to be seen.
Plot hole: The parents meet and get married on the QE II and then we jump to 11 years and nine months later, which is the time the girls get to camp. It comes out that they will both celebrate their 12th birthdays on October 11, so at the time of the camp (which must be around July/August) they are 11 years and around 9 months. So either they were born almost immediately after conception or the timeframe is off.
Continuity mistake: When Annie and her friends are approaching the area where the fencing is taking place, all three girls are holding tennis rackets. The shot switches to the camp counselor and back to the girls. The African American girl is no longer holding a tennis racket. The shot goes back to the counselor and then to the girls again, where all three have a tennis racket again.
Revealing mistake: When Hallie and Annie are fencing with each other, Hallie forces Annie's sword into the air, and Annie runs towards the hay stack in the background to catch it. The sword lands on top of the stack of hay to the left of the screen and bounces out of sight; Annie then catches another sword that falls from above, that someone obviously dropped for her to catch.
Factual error: At the hotel, Chessy's door to her room stays open after she goes into the other room to discuss the whole 'dad doesn't know' matter. In real hotels, the guest-room doors have auto-closing mechanisms for fire safety and security. The door would have swung closed and locked Chessy out, but even though this is a 4 or 5 star hotel which would be fully equipped as far as modernity's, it doesn't.
Continuity mistake: When Hallie (posing as Annie) arrives in London, she is seen sitting on the left seat in the car when she's on her way home, passing by the various spots in London. However, when she reaches home, she is sitting on the right side of the car. Unless she was sitting alone, this is not logical as Martin was sitting together with her at the back of the car.
Character mistake: When Chessy confronts "Annie" when she's presenting her with the big breakfast, she's talking about when Annie was on the phone the night before. Then she says her father overslept, when she actually meant to say and "and you overslept," as the conversation doesn't make any sense saying that the father overslept.
Revealing mistake: Annie and Hallie come downstairs at the hotel dressed in the same outfits, as their parents tell them to hurry before their mother misses her flight back to England. Nicholas Parker leans over and looks at one of the girls in the eyes and says "This one's Hallie" and she replies, looking straight ahead at him in the eyes. When the other twin speaks, she's looking straight ahead as well, which would technically mean she is looking at nothing.
Continuity mistake: When Annie and Hallie are just about to play cards, Annie spreads all the cards out on the bed and turns them over and then back again. But in one of the shots you can see that it is Hallie who turned the cards over because her fingernails are painted and Annie's are not.

Factual error: In the scene in which Annie and Hallie are fencing, it portrays it as though Annie does not win until she hits Hallie (effectively knocking her into the water). However, in a real fencing match, Annie would have won within a few seconds after they started. Once a person is backed off their end of the strip, their opponent automatically gets a point.
Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, they show the lake and the little sign that says Camp Walden. There are boats under a roof top right in front of the pier. But in the scene where they show Annie jumping into the lake the boats are in a different location and the roof top is gone.

Continuity mistake: In the opening scenes where they show the camera girl about to take a picture of them, you can see that there are candles and a flower arrangement on the table. When they open the book to show us the picture of them the candles are gone and the flower arrangement is different.

Continuity mistake: When Hallie is posing as Annie and is going to her mother's house for the first time, a piece of her hair is obviously sticking out on the side of her ear (It's very noticeable). When she gets to the front, and the camera angle changes, her hair is all perfect without any hair sticking out.
Continuity mistake: When Hallie and Annie drag Meredith into the lake when she's asleep on the air mattress, the color of the air mattress is dark green. When Meredith wakes up with the bird on her chest, all of a sudden the air mattress is a two tone khaki color. When Meredith stands up on the air mattress in the next shot on the lake, the air mattress is now another shade of green.
