High School Musical 3: Senior Year

Continuity mistake: When Troy surprises Gabriella at Stanford you can see that she has some dirt on her arm. As they continue to dance, you can see that her arm is clean.

Continuity mistake: Troy tells Gabriella he's never been to a dance, much less a prom, but the picture on his bedside table and the picture in Gabriella's locker in High School Musical 2 were supposed to have been taken at Junior Prom.

Continuity mistake: When Sharpay is on the phone with her parents you can see Troy in the background, but he's only supposed to make it for the second act.

Continuity mistake: During rehearsal, just after Ryan cracks up at the sight of Chad in the clown suit, as Taylor pulls Chad away Gabrielle walks to the center of the 'balcony', with her back to Troy. Next shot, however, Gabrielle is back near the corner or the railing facing Troy, but next shot she's farther away again. (00:51:50)

Continuity mistake: After Troy has the chat with Chad on the basketball court, when they're joined by Coach Bolton there is a close-up of Chad and Troy, whose graduation gowns/sashes are neat and tidy. Then after a shot of the coach as he tells them to get back to the stage, in the teenagers' next close-up their graduation gowns/sashes are all mussed up and disheveled.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Chad asks Taylor to the prom, at the very beginning of the scene, a shot is shown that shows the whole cafeteria. Neither Chad nor Troy can be seen at the top of the railing. In the next shot, however, they are suddenly there.


Continuity mistake: When the students are complaining around the piano, depending on the shot Zeke either has his arms folded or suddenly has his hands in his pockets.


Deliberate mistake: At graduation, after Troy is handed the diploma, in the overhead shot the graduates on the left and right stand-up from their seats, then turn and walk towards each other. All their seats simply disappear between shots. Obviously done deliberately for the dance sequence, but a mistake nonetheless.

Question: When Troy goes to the gym at night he looks at the basketball jerseys (there are 6 I think), one is Troy's, one Chad's and another Jack Bolton's. Who do the others belong to?

Answer: I think that they are just props. The owner of those jerseys has no relevence to the plot.. They might just be randomly picked names.
