Visible crew/equipment: While Sophie's with Lisa and Ali at the dock, after they admire Sophie's engagement ring Lisa bends down to pick up her handbag, and there's a rather large bulge at her lower back under her top - presumably the mic pack, which wasn't there when Lisa lifted Sophie and spun her around.

Visible crew/equipment: Near the end, when Rosie is asking Bill to Take A Chance On Me, she falls and is hanging from the roof. In one shot when she has her glasses, a light screen can be seen reflected in them.

Visible crew/equipment: When Donna and her friends are singing "Super Trooper" at the bachelor party, you can see a crew member reflected on the colorful door.


Continuity mistake: When Sophie is finally dressed for her wedding, the gauzey material is predominately over her right shoulder/breast. Next shot it is over her left. When she gets on the donkey, it is completely off her right side and her bra shows.

Question: When is the movie supposed to have taken place? There is reference to Donna having dated and presumably conceived in the 1960s. That would place Sophie's wedding, at age 20, no later than 1990. But isn't that a little early for Sky to be putting the Villa Donna on the internet?

Answer: Sophie finds Donna's diary from 1979, being the year Sophie was conceived meaning she was born in 1980 (as the diary entries are from July/August). So the movie is set in 2000.
