Continuity mistake: When the camera pans to an overhead shot of Lizzie lying on her bed, sulking about not being able to go to the party, look at the books opened on her bed.

Yet in the next shot the position of the balls of yarn in the basket has completely changed.

Plot hole: When Lizzie and Gordo are sitting at lunch, Gordo says that he doesn't like broccoli (referring to the pile on his plate) and that he tries to avoid it. However it is established in many scenes that Lizzie's school has a self serve cafeteria, so why does he have broccoli?

Factual error: During the montage of Lizzie and Matt at the charity drive golf tournament, there is one part where Lizzie is standing outside the Men's toilet as Matt uses it. However they are handcuffed together with cuffs that have a chain which is about an inch long, so there is no way Matt could use the toilet with Lizzie standing outside the door.

Audio problem: Near the end of the episode, when Lizzie, Gordo and Miranda are walking down the street, Lizzie begins to say how she could concentrate on helping stray dogs.

The guy has three red sweet (candy) laces hanging around his shoulder; and the amount keeps changing from shot to shot.

Continuity mistake: When Miranda, Lizzie and Gordo are talking in the cinema lobby after they realize that they're going to be on TV and that they will get caught for sneaking to the cinema, from shot to shot Miranda's bag straps keep altering from sitting on top of each other, to each strap being apart on her shoulder.
Continuity mistake: When Jo and Sam McGuire are talking about Lizzie, after Jo received the phonecall from the cinema, in frontal shots of Sam he holds a spanner down on the table, but in shots from behind you can barely see that he is actually holding the spanner by his face; this repeats a few times. Also during the conversation Sam leans his head to the right as he says Lizzie is a "lying hero", yet in the next shot his head is suddenly upright.
Continuity mistake: When the guy begins to choke on a gumball, him and his friend begin to playfully hit each other as they panic. In one shot the friend (who is wearing a blue hat) is hit and his hat almost falls backwards off his head. Then in the next shot the hat is back on his head firmly.

As the shot changes, the Christmas presents that surround them in the bag rearrange themselves instantly.
