Continuity mistake: When Cady runs into her teacher on the first day of school and spills coffee all over her, look at Tina Fey's pants. It looks like she is wearing rubber pants when the coffee is spilling down her front. The color of the pants also change during this shot. (00:02:50)

Continuity mistake: When Regina becomes angry, and writes the horrible message in the burn book about herself to frame Cady and the others, the handwriting changes between shots. Look at "DO NOT TRUST HER" and "She is a fugly slut." - The handwriting changes noticeably, and "fugly slut" changes a lot - she writes it so the "g" and "y" have curled ends, yet it cuts to her sticking her photo in, and the ends to the tails on the "g" and "y" are straight. The line under "fugly slut," and the exclamation mark both change too. (01:00:15 - 01:00:45)
