Continuity mistake: When the sisters are at the baseball game and Katherine Heigl is eating french-fries there is a shot that shows her taking a bite of the french-fry but when the shot changes she has a whole fry in her hand.


Continuity mistake: In the final scene of the movie when Jane gets married on the beach, you see guests arriving and Tess is handing out programs. She hands a program to a blond girl with a brown polka dot dress. In the next shot, we see Tess talking to George and the same woman arrives again and Tess hands her a program again.

Continuity mistake: When Jane is tying George's tie, the part around his collar goes from being seam-side out to in to out again between camera angles.

Continuity mistake: In the argument in the car in the rain, Kevin has a seatbelt on, but while accusing Jane of being in a creepy love triangle, he has no belt on. When he says "Nice Jane," he has a seat belt on. It is off again when Jane says she is thrilled about the boss and sister marrying. It is on again at the road sign where Kevin doesn't have Spidy vision. When Kevin checks for a cell phone signal once the car stops hydroplaning, the seatbelt is over his collar but when he snaps the cell phone shut, the collar is over the seatbelt suddenly.

Continuity mistake: Kevin and Jane are performing Benny and the Jets on stage. There are two blonds in the crowd, but the one on the right sometimes waves a cell phone or a glass of water, depending on the shot.

Continuity mistake: When Kevin tries to convince his boss in her office that he wants to do some work using Jane's journal, the pencil in her hair sticks up more sometimes.

Continuity mistake: After arriving home depressed from reading the article Kevin wrote in the journal, Jane is seated on her couch beside a pillow. You can see the flower in the lower corner of the pillow, but when Tess is screaming about bridezilla, Jane has moved over and you cannot see the lower flower - but later she has moved for the viewing of the flowers again when Tess leaves.

Continuity mistake: When the friends are at yoga, Jane's hair at the side bangs has fallen out at each side, but then it is all back again in some scenes.

Continuity mistake: Jane is modeling the yellow dress with red flowers and Kevin has the camera in his right hand but when he says "Oh my God!", his right hand is free to cover his mouth. Then the camera is back in his hand to take the photo. Later when Jane is sitting in the red dress talking with Kevin about things she has done for people as a bridesmaid, her necklace that was off center moves to the center. But when she says "I am Jesus" and then is back off center again.

Continuity mistake: Kevin has taken the photo of Jane in the olive green bridesmaid dress but his pointer finger changes position high and low on the camera as he turns it to Jane and back.

Continuity mistake: Kevin and Jane arrive at the bar, and after Kevin announces the pay phone is dead, the bartender sets a glass down and puts his hands on the bar. But after Kevin places the scotch order, there is the sound of a glass being set down again, and a small piece of the serviette shows. After Kevin and Jane dance to Benny and the Jets, Kevin helps Jane off the stage and Kevin admits he cried at the Keller wedding. Some sweat is shown on his neck, but when Jane grabs his neck to kiss him, his neck is dry.

Continuity mistake: When Jane is wearing one gown (from Suzanne and Greg's wedding), while carrying another in a bag, she hails a taxi and affixed on its roof there is an illuminated advertisement panel and its number is "9Z66". However, in the next two shots the ad panel has vanished and the taxi's number is now "8Z30". (There is a missing shot which can be seen in the deleted scenes. Still a mistake, but there's the reason.) (00:04:10)

Factual error: In the Monday morning shots of New York in the beginning of the film, there is a shot of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline behind it. If this were actually morning, the sun would be behind the camera (East), but it appears to be behind the buildings (West) making this an evening shot. The Circle Line tour boat also goes by, which would not be in service at sunrise.

Continuity mistake: When we meet Pedro, the camera cuts between Pedro in the foreground and Jane in the background, to the reverse shot with Pedro again in the foreground but George and Tess in the background. In the final cut, Pedro is facing the wrong way than he did the second before.

Jane: I never do anything like this.
Kevin: I know.
Jane: You do?
Kevin: Yes, you kept repeating that over and over last night - I never do anything like this... I NEVER do anything like this... I never do ANYTHING like this.

More quotes from 27 Dresses

Trivia: Although the movie title is "27 Dresses", one of Jane's bridesmaid outfits is actually a man's black suit and tie (pant suit), and not a dress at all. This is shown at the end during Jane and Kevin's wedding. So really the movie should be called "26 Dresses and One Suit."


More trivia for 27 Dresses

Question: When Tess reveals to Jane that she has booked the Boat House as the location of the wedding she explains that she was only able to book it because of a cancellation. She then goes on to give details of that cancellation. How would she know those details and why would the people that booked her even give her those details or even know them at all themselves? Those things seem private even if it is based on fictional events.

Answer: I'm sure the person in charge of booking the location has these details. Sure it was unprofessional to give these details out, but it happens all the time.
