Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood

Continuity mistake: In the beginning when the four young girls are sitting around the campfire. Vivi takes a drink of chocolate from the chalice, then passes it to the next girl. In the next shot, chocolate stains in the corner of her lips are visible that weren't there before, and she didn't take another drink. (00:02:40)

Continuity mistake: When Sidda wakes up after being kidnapped by the Ya-Ya's, she takes a bloody mary to the front porch and sits in a deck chair. During the flashback to Sidda's childhood, the Ya-Ya's and their kids are at the beach. Vivi blows the whistle around her friend's neck to get the kids' attention. In the first shot, she is on her knees. The shot suddenly changes and she is still blowing the whistle but is now sitting down. (00:20:10)

Continuity mistake: When Sidda is lying on the couch, in the house where she has been taken by the women, as she is talking on the phone to her fiance, she is lying on a scarf behind her head in close-up. After it cuts away then back on her, there are two scarves behind her head, but after another cut away it's back to only one scarf again. (00:44:25)

Continuity mistake: When Shep goes to visit Sidda at the cottage her hair is tied up in a scarf in pigtails, yet a few seconds later her hair is in a ponytail. (01:05:50)

Continuity mistake: During the part of the movie flashback when Vivi's children were getting sick, 4 children were shown. Later on there were only 3 children that were seen in the remaining scenes. (01:13:15)

Other mistake: When Vivi is whipping the kids with the belt outside in the rain and the man comes up to save them, Vivi falls to the ground a couple of times and you see a mud stain on her white night gown, but in the very next scene when she tries to get up there's no stain at all. (01:27:05)

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when the Ya-Ya's are lighting the cake on fire, the trumpet player doesn't move his fingers at all. (01:47:10)

Continuity mistake: When they are inducting Sidda into the sisterhood, the first view of her hat is turned with the brim facing away from Sidda. It then turns around when Caro wiggles the hat in front of her showing her the Time cover on it. (01:47:55)

Other mistake: The age difference between Ya-Ya's and Sidda is off. If you assume that Sidda is in her late 30's, then it is impossible for her mother to have attended the Gone with the Wind premiere as a tween, been a teenager during WW2 and been in her early twenties when she had Sidda, her oldest child. Sidda should really be about a decade older. If Sidda were the youngest child, it would make sense.

Vivi: Did she actually say she was calling the whole thing off?
Connor: Did she use those exact words? No, she said, "Don't mail out he invitations."
Vivi: Yeah, but she didn't say burn them or throw them out. That's hopeful.
