In the flash back scene at Romy and Michele's High School which occurs in the late '80s there are cans of Coca Cola on the lunch tables. The cans seen are the modern cans of the late '90s with the elongated neck and push through top. The characters graduated in 1987 and the pull top cans with the tear drop shaped openings were still being used until 1989.

At the real reunion, after being caught telling a lie Romy says, "Now we're just a stupid joke just like we always were." One can clearly see by her lip movement that she is saying something else (possibly the 'f' word).

Character error 

When Toby asks Heather and Sandy if they want to name all 50 state capitals at the prom, Sandy incorrectly says "Albuquerque". Albuquerque is not the capital city of New Mexico, Santa Fe is.

After talking to Heather, Romy makes the next woman wait. When the woman's back is to the camera, her elbow's on the counter, her chin being supported by her hand. This is not so when she is facing the camera.

At the "dream" reunion, the Mercedes limousine changes from one with two moon roofs, then with a shorter limo with one moon roof, and back again. When Romy is hit by Sandy's limousine, the rear window is blacked out by window tint, but the tint disappears moments later when Romy and Sandy are shown in the back of the limo. When the cars appear inside the reunion, Sandy's limousine now has blanked rear door opera windows and a smaller back window (additionally, the trunk mounted television antenna that Romy knocked off before entering the reunion has now re-appeared). As the limousine exits the building, it is back to the longer, dual moon-roof model seen earlier with the trunk-mounted television antenna missing again.
