Plot hole: Near the end of the movie, when Mr Potts finds out that he's going to be rich (Mr Scrumptious wants to buy his invention) and he rushes out to his car to go see Truly, he meets her en route and she's got her hair in an really elaborate style and has changed. But there is no way she could have possibly got to her house, found out that her father had gone to see Mr Potts to buy his invention, changed her outfit, done her hair like that and gone out to see Mr Potts in the short amount of time between Mr Potts and his children dropping her off, and Mr Potts and her meeting at the pond.
