Continuity mistake: At the beginning, when Bella and Charlie first start talking in the patrol car, they stop at an intersection. Through Charlie's window we see a young man walking toward the four way about to cross the street and there is no traffic approaching. In the next shot, there is a rig carrying logs crossing the intersection in front of the patrol car, and the young man is nowhere to be seen. (00:02:35)


Audio problem: When Charlie and Bella enter Bella's bedroom for the first time, after she says, "Yeah, purple's cool," you can hear whispering of some sort (possibly crew) if the volume is turned up enough. (Their S's are very distinct.) (00:03:50)

Visible crew/equipment: When Bella pulls up in her truck for her first day at Forks High, as the camera pans from her truck as she parks it into shot, you can see the camera and boom reflected in the triangular window. (00:05:35)

Continuity mistake: In the cafeteria, when Bella sits for the first time with Angela, Jessica, Mike and Eric she has her arms crossed. When Angela takes her picture Bella's arms are unfolded. Then the shot changes and her arms are crossed again. (00:07:35)


Continuity mistake: In the first scene in the cafeteria, when Bella suggests that Angie should run an editorial on "speedo padding on the swim team", she then holds up her food to take a bite with her right hand. However, in the reverse-angle shot, when Angie says "actually, that's a good one", Bella's right hand is seen placed on top of her left arm. Then when it cuts back to Bella, she is again holding the food up to her mouth. (00:08:30)


Continuity mistake: In the first biology class, when Edward moves the glass petri dish over to Bella and "hides" one in his hand, a piece of paper is lying crooked between them on Bella's side of the table. In the next shot, both glass dishes are between them, and the paper is on Edward's side, and it's now vertical. (00:10:30)


Continuity mistake: In the scene when Bella first walks into Biology class, she walks past a large fan that hits her with a gust of wind that visibly jostles her hair. In the next shot, her hair is completely perfect again. (00:10:35)

Continuity mistake: When Tyler throws a piece of licorice at Bella to get her to come over to them, Jessica is standing to the very far left (from Bella's view) facing Bella and trying to talk to Mike. After Bella shakes her book at him in response, Jessica is suddenly standing to the very far right (from Bella's view) facing away from Bella and goofing around with Angela. (00:13:30)

Revealing mistake: When Bella is walking out of her house while talking with Charlie on the first icy morning, before she slips on the ice you can see under her jeans that she is wearing knee pads, and you can see them again once she stands up after falling. (00:15:25)

Twilight mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Bella enters the biology classroom and Edward has finally returned, as she walks over to her desk the large book sitting on the edge repositions itself from sitting horizontally to vertically between shots.

Continuity mistake: On the day Edward returns to Biology, there is a microscope on the table. It is sitting at an angle on the table when Bella walks into the classroom. When she sits down, it has moved and is now straight, parallel to the table's edge. (00:16:10)


Twilight mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Bella enters Biology class and talks to Eric about the prom, she starts to walk, then pauses to look across the room towards Edward. In this shot, the Armadillo is not on the shelf, only what looks like a peice of paper is hanging there. The Armadillo appears on the shelf only after she has sat down at her desk and Edward moves the microscope towards Bella saying, "Ladies first". (00:16:45)


Revealing mistake: When Bella and Edward are identifying the different stages of mitosis (prophase, metaphase, anaphase) in the lab it's not possible given the position of the microscope lens in relation to the microscope stage. The lens is positioned too far from the stage for an image of the nucleus to be correctly focused in the ocular. (00:16:55)


Twilight mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the hospital, after the 'almost' car crash when Edward saves Bella, she has a blood pressure cuff on her arm. You can see the nurse take it off. She has it off for a while, but then it reappears on her arm in one shot, just as her dad says "you can kiss your licence goodbye". (00:21:10)

More trivia for Twilight

Question: Near the end of the movie, at the prom, when Bella and Edward first walk in, Bella spots Jessica and signals something to her with her hand going across her chest. What was Bella signalling to Jessica?


Chosen answer: Earlier, when the girls were shopping for prom dresses in Port Angeles, Jessica commented that the low-cut dress she was trying on made her boobs "look good." She is wearing that same dress at the prom, and Bella is gesturing and then giving a "thumbs up" that Jessica's cleavage does look good. Jessica mouths back, "I know."
