Little Miss Sunshine

Character mistake: When they arrive at the motel, the mother says that the grandpa is in room 13, but when he opens his door it is room 208.

Factual error: The family passes an exit for Carefree Highway. This is an exit off I-17 a few miles North of Phoenix. At that point they would be about 10 miles from Scottsdale. Yet they drive all day and that night they are still within scooter range from Scottsdale.

Continuity mistake: In the Little Miss Sunshine pageant there is a girl who, in the talent competition, does a dance in a cyan-colored uniform-type costume. Her act is before Olive's, which is the very last act, however after the girl's act, she can be seen in one shot being led towards the stage and in another having makeup put on, both times in the same costume. Neither of these should be happening if she has already done her act.

Richard: Sweet sweetness.

Grandpa: A real loser is someone who's so afraid of not winning he doesn't even try.

Dwayne: You know what? Fuck beauty contests. Life is one fucking beauty contest after another. You know, school, then college, then work, fuck that. And fuck the air force academy. If I wanna fly, I'll find a way to fly. You do what you love, and fuck the rest.
Frank: I'm glad you're talking again, Dwayne. You're not nearly as stupid as you look.
