Continuity mistake: Backstage Vic pulls off Gracie's towel and pushes her onstage. In the next wide shot we see a boat riding past the stage, and the boat's operator is wearing a blue shirt. In the next close-up of that boat operator, his shirt is white. (01:03:35)

Continuity mistake: Stan announces, "Swimsuit Preliminary accounts for 15%..." and the contestants are seen on stage. Miss NY to the left of the screen and Miss California and Miss Texas to the right of the screen, are walking towards center stage where Miss West Virginia is. Yet in the next shot backstage in the dressing room all four of those contestants are seen backstage with Gracie. (01:03:15)

Continuity mistake: While Gracie and Cheryl are talking in Gracie's hotel room, the telephone on the nightstand between the two beds is on the right side of the lamp, and Miss Texas is lying down with the burgundy robe over her matching nightgown. When Gracie gets into bed, in this shot the telephone is now on the left side of the lamp and Miss Texas doesn't have the robe on. (00:44:45)

Continuity mistake: The back of the Laika Restaurant is first shown when Agent Jerry Grant confirms, "All clear" to McDonald. There's an exterior covered vent with duct tape to the left of the door, many black trash bags, boxes and trash cans. When Matthews hits the Ivan with the trash can, most of these objects are positioned differently or don't exist at all. (00:02:30 - 00:06:25)

Revealing mistake: In the opening close-up of adult Gracie, her eyes are looking over the faux book entitled 'Essentials of Russian Grammar'. There is a camera lens through the binding of the book in the center of the letter 'o' in the word 'of'. In the next close-up and semi close-up of Gracie, the camera lens is not in the binding, it's just the title of the book. One giveaway, the diameter of the lens in the first shot is greater than the diameter of the 'o' in the subsequent shots. (00:02:20)

Continuity mistake: Matthews is sitting with other agents in front of the monitor as Gracie first arrives with the other contestants to the orientation breakfast. In every front view of the monitor, as we see the video feed from Gracie, there are videotapes surrounding the monitor. Yet in all of the back views of the monitor, it's right up against other electronic items. (00:38:20)

Continuity mistake: Gracie and Matthews have a meeting with Kathy Morningside (Candice) and Stan Fields (Shatner) in her office to discuss Gracie's upcoming undercover work. In the 1st shot, Kathy stands up in front of a picture of a previous Miss United States and the reflection in the glass behind Kathy shows Stan, Matthews and Gracie standing up as well. Yet, in the 2nd shot, Stan who is still sitting stands up now. Then in the 3rd shot, Matthews and Gracie get up too. (00:23:20)

Continuity mistake: When the agents are at the computer having fun with the Dress Up Sally website, the ketchup stain on Gracie's blouse is much larger now than in the previous shots. (00:17:20)

Continuity mistake: Gracie, Matthews and the rest are planning their operation, and as Harris says, "It's a logistical nightmare," in the close-up Gracie's second blouse button is open. As she walks towards the table, it's closed. In the close-up she says, "...prelims or maybe a TV broadcast," it's open. In the next shot it's closed again. Then when Matthews says, "I got just the girl," that button is open yet again. (00:16:40)

Continuity mistake: At the bar, in the close-up Gracie spills ketchup on the side of the Citizen memo and the paper isn't wrinkled, but when Matthews walks in, the paper is wrinkled and stained all over. Matthews then introduces Beth to Gracie and Beth's hair at her shoulders changes throughout this scene, as does the bow on her shirt. Matthews' shirt collar changes too. (00:13:35)

Continuity mistake: As McDonald leaves the FBI briefing room, after Matthews is put in charge, in the first wide shot as Gracie stands up to follow McDonald, the four clocks on the wall are seen. In the subsequent close-up, as she follows McDonald out, the clocks are seen again and there is a VERY big difference in the times shown in both shots. (00:12:40)

Continuity mistake: In the FBI briefing room, McDonald tells Matthews to get a team together. In the first close-up, the black folder is under the one white memo sheet. In the wide shot as he stands, there are many white papers near his folder. In the next close-up, the black folder is under the one white memo sheet again. (00:12:25)

Continuity mistake: In her apartment, Gracie drops her bags down, trips near her bed and starts kicking it. The blanket's on the floor in front of the doorway as she heads into the kitchen, which is bright. In the next shot from her front, as she walks towards the kitchen, which is now very dark, the blanket's now on the side of the bed. Also, there's a wicker basket with clothes on the corner of the rug now and her black bag that she dropped earlier is positioned quite differently. (00:07:45)

Trivia: Gracie Hart is determined to be a top notch FBI agent in order to follow in the footsteps of her mother Emily, who was a respected FBI agent, who died while in the line of duty. After the briefing, she is seen passing the photo of her mother on the memorial wall, when she speaks with McDonald about following orders and the Citizen case. Also seen in the deleted scenes.

Continuity mistake: In the Laika Restaurant, standing at the back bar, Jerry holds a gun on Ivan's Russian bodyguard with the yellow shirt, seen when McDonald and his men burst into the restaurant. There's a male customer crouched down at Jerry's feet. While Gracie says, "You're not killing anyone, you peanut eating ..." the bar is visible behind them and the man crouching is seen, but Jerry and the Russian bodyguard are not at the bar. Gracie flips Krashow and in the next close-up, Jerry is back at the bar near the crouching guy, with his gun still pointing at the Russian bodyguard, who then shoots Jerry. Then in the next shot, that Russian bodyguard is not at the bar like in the previous shot, only Ivan and another Russian are there shooting at McDonald and his men. (00:05:50)

Revealing mistake: At Helm's Deep, in the 1st close-up, Gimli says, "You could have picked a better spot," and two particular Elves stand at his left. In the next wide shot as Aragorn approaches, the Elves to the left of Gimli are different Elves than in the previous shot. One of those Elves from the 2nd shot is seen close-up when Aragorn walks away. Also, the second row of Elves is much closer to the first row of Elves in the 1st shot. (01:00:25)

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl mistake picture

Factual error: Sir Charles Wheatstone, an English physicist (b.1802 - d.1875), invented the 'concertina' around the mid 1800's. The 'concertina' is a small musical instrument like an accordion, with bellows and keys. During the Moonlight Serenade scene, when Elizabeth walks out onto the deck, she sees the skeletal pirates for the first time, and Jacoby is seen playing the 'concertina', but it was not invented yet.

Continuity mistake: Pippin is being tended to by Gandalf after being affected by Sauron through the palantir. The blankets under Pip's head differ in some of his close-ups. Then when looking down on Pippin, Gandalf's hand is touching Pippin's head throughout most of these shots. Though when looking up at Gandalf, his hand is not at Pippin's head in at least two shots that are wide enough to see a hand, if it were there. (00:21:45)

Continuity mistake: When Pippin approaches sleeping Gandalf there is a shot of Gandalf hugging the cloth covered Palantir, yet when Pippin waves his hand in front of Gandalf's eyes the cloth is wrapped around the Palantir differently. When Pip places it on the blankets and opens the grey cloth, in the first close-up, then a wide shot and subsequent close-ups, the cloth lying around the palantir is arranged differently. (00:20:20)

Continuity mistake: Éowyn removes her helmet and declares, "I am no man!" In the shot of her stabbing the Witch King, her hair on both sides is in front of her shoulders. However in the shots preceding and following this one, the hair on her left side is tucked behind her shoulder. (02:11:50)
