Continuity 

Tai's shirt does not disappear and re-appear. She simply tries wearing it, different ways. Like around her head as a scarf.
When Christian is first seen standing in the doorway of Cher's class room, a boy in yellow runs by and a girl in blue walks the other way. In the next shot of Christian, the boy and girl are seen again going in the same direction they were going before.

When Josh drives Cher home from the Mighty Mighty Bosstones gig, the exterior drive-by shot shows an earlier one which was recycled (the one when Elton offered to drive Cher home from the party). Note that the car shown was Elton's Camaro rather than Josh's Honda. In addition, the interiors of the car during that scene are in fact that of a Camaro (compare to the earlier scene in Elton's car), not of Josh's Honda.

In the scene where Cher is "negotiating" with her teacher (Mr Hall) to get her grade raised, which he'll have no part of, he escorts her to and out the classroom door. The door is swung open out into the hallway, and he pulls it closed. In the next scene Cher is in the hallway with her back against the now closed door, but there are no hinges to her left. They would have to be there if the door opened outward from the classroom to the hall. This door opens inward.

As Cher makes her appearance in the white dress and descends the staircase greeting Christian along the way, Josh is baffled by her appearance and watches in awe, as she makes her entrance. However, from Josh's view and the angle of his head, he would actually be looking toward the front door and foyer as there is a huge wall blocking almost the entire view of the staircase except the last few steps.

Miscellaneous 

The debate teacher refers to Cher as "Cher Horowitz," but the name on her report card (viewed when her father is looking at it, after the grades have been changed) is "Cher Hamilton." The piece of mail her father tosses aside right before looking at her report card says "Melvin Hamilton" also.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

The day after Tai got her make-over and needs a boyfriend, Cher says that Elton is recently single. Tai then asks who Elton is, when on her first day of school, Cher specifically pointed out who he was. However, she easily could have forgotten his name. Many people take time to learn the names of people they just met.

Plot holes 

When Cher calls Josh using the pay phone she dials the number without putting in coins. Also, Josh hangs up the phone without knowing exactly where she is in Sun Valley.
Near the end of the film, Cher gets upset after flunking her drivers test & storms out. She walks along until she sees a clothing store, and purchases clothing. But she clearly left the house with no purse & wearing a mini dress. How did she pay for the clothes?

Revealing mistakes 

In the scene where Christian comes over, when Cher pulls the burning cookies out of the oven, she obviously grabs the oven rack, which would've burned her hand.

She is first seen at the top of the stairs, then the camera switches to Josh, who apparently is watching her walk down the entire flight of stairs. However, from where Josh is sitting, he can only see the bottom few steps and could not watch her descend the entire staircase.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

In the wedding scene, Mr. Hall's stand-in is half a foot taller and has different hair. This is almost certainly deliberate to give the impression that it is Cher and Josh who are getting married.
