Continuity mistake: When Austin is typing to Sam from his bedroom, the very first book on the shelf in the background keeps changing, over and over again. This occurs near the start, when they are still unknown to each other, and also when he tries to write to her after the pep rally incident.

Continuity mistake: During Sam and Austin's dancing outdoors, Sam's hand shifts. In one shot it is completely over his shoulder and in the next shot it is on his shoulder. We see her hand the entire time so there is no time for her to move it without seeing it.

Continuity mistake: After the twins enter the car wash, in the first shot when Gabriella walks through the vertical black cloth strips, with squeegee in hand, she is wearing the large hoop earrings. When it cuts to the next shot, as she shouts, "Bri?," her earrings are suddenly gone. This occurs before Brianna climbs onto Gabriella's shoulders. (01:04:00)

Continuity mistake: When Sam and Carter leave the dance and run to the Mercedes so Sam can get back to the diner by midnight, in the long shot before they reach the car we see, one, that Sam pulls off her mask as she's running, and two, there's a rearview mirror on the Mercedes. In the following shots the mask is still on her face, and the rearview mirror has vanished again.

Continuity mistake: When Sam is at Carter's house to give him a lift to school, Carter (in his Snoop Dizzle look) is holding the script in his left hand and the bag's strap falls off his right shoulder when he sits down.

Sam: We're supposed to be conserving water, we're in the middle of a drought.

More quotes from A Cinderella Story

Trivia: The directors had Sam wear a lot of blue throughout the movie to standout and show she stood apart from everyone else. They tried to get all the other actors and extras to wear as little blue as possible. If you pay attention, Sam is often wearing blue and all the teenagers in the background wear jeans a lot less than you would probably see at a high school.
