After their first rehearsal, Janey tells Lyn how she was with Jeff for over an hour. This is impossible since they are clearly only in the room for no more than 5 minutes - the same song is playing the whole time through that scene, and is still playing when Jeff leaves.

Janey's hair is different in the dance contest than when she and Lynne are on their way to the contest; it is more permed (and longer), and is tied up differently.

Janey's shirt when she leaves for "The Court" is longer & tucked in, but after she gets there it is cropped. It is tucked in again after she arrives home.

Janey's hair is smooth & straight when she's at "The Court", but noticeably more frizzy & puffy when she's talking to Jeff outside her apartment. (after she returns home from "The Court")

Factual errors 

In the beginning of the movie when Janey is in front of the class and talking about herself, she tells that she was with her Army father on Guam. Guam has Navy, Marines, and Air Force, but no Army.

About an hour into the film there's a montage of Jeff and Janey practicing in the park. In one sequence Maggie is sitting in a tree looking on as Jeff jumps off of it. Jeff lands and turns to look at her. The shot of her reaction was flipped, as the text on the Pepsi can she's holding is backwards, and the tree she's sitting on is now on her left (screen right) instead of her right (screen left). This was obviously done to match the direction of the shot of Jeff looking at her.
