Elizabethtown (2005)

Continuity mistake: When Claire greets Drew and then takes a seat beside him on the airplane, the part in her hair repeatedly differs between shots. Later, when Drew and Claire run back to the ballroom, where they left Mitch, her hair is pulled into a barrette, and some of her hair alternates between loose or not. This type of thing occurs numerous times in the film. (00:17:20)

Elizabethtown (2005)

Continuity mistake: On his way to Etown, Drew pulls over to the side of the road because he missed 60B. In the two exterior shots of the car, the right front passenger headrest is attached to the seat. However, in all other shots it has been removed. Additionally, when Drew pulls his car alongside Claire's car to say goodbye, both of the front seats' headrests have been removed from her car just for that shot, as she looks out the back window.

Continuity mistake: After Drew's little fit over actually missing 60B, in the interior car shot when he continues driving, the concrete barrier dividing the highway is on his left, as he sees the huge Elizabethtown sign. In the next exterior shot of the sign, the road is entirely different with no concrete barrier, but when it cuts back to Drew getting all giddy, the barriers are back, etc. (00:24:50)
