The Princess Diaries

Corrected entry: When Mia and the queen are at the arcade, they go in the photo booth. The queen is holding the strip of 4 photos, and says, "Oh I want one of these!" and rips off the top picture, which was one of them making faces. But later, when Clarice was upset with Mia, Mia looks at the mantle to a picture taken in the photo booth, and it's one of them both smiling normally.

Correction: When Clarisse looks at the pictures and says "I want one of these!" she then says, "Only not this one," because it was of her making a weird face. One of the ones she kept was the two of them smiling normally.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Mia is riding in the limo and Joe gets out to ask directions, he stops a couple on the side to ask them for directions. This couple is or are being portrayed as a Japanese couple. When Joe is done getting directions for them, he says "Gomen Nasai", which means "I'm so sorry" in Japanese. Shouldn't he be saying "Arigatou" (Thank You) instead?

Correction: He's probably trying to be polite by using the only Japanese phrase he knows.

Correction: It seems more like the couple is asking for directions. He is probably apologizing for not being able to help them. Or maybe that he has to leave the conversation to get back to Mia.

Corrected entry: The first time the chauffeur takes the princess to school in the limo, they pick up her friend. At the end of that school day, they ride home on their scooters. How did they get their scooters if they rode to school in the limo?

Correction: It's a different day. they are wearing different clothes and everything.

Corrected entry: When Mia goes to visit her Grandmother for the first time, the security monitor shows her walking across the yard however at this stage she is about to enter the front door.

Correction: The person shown on the monitor is not Mia, but someone walking past the front gates on the sidewalk.

Continuity mistake: During the beach party, when Mandy Moore's character is singing, her friends, who are supposed to be her backup singers, don't sing along with her. They somehow manage to sing the whole song without moving their mouths.

Trivia: In the scene where Mia slips and falls on the bleachers, Anne Hathaway actually did fall. The director thought it was so funny that he decided to leave it in there. Notice how Mia and Lilly fall out of character and start laughing, but in the next shot they're immediately serious again as if nothing happened.
