In the scene were Mary Katherine is praying to God while the Vicks Vapor is running, she makes the sign of the cross backwards. She touches her right shoulder first instead of touching her left shoulder first. Roman Catholics make the sign of the cross touching their left shoulder first, and then their right shoulder secondly.

Continuity 

After the paint is dumped on Mary during the talent contest auditions, she starts running, going through the audience, turning right down the hall then turning another right to run outside through the large front doors. Father Ritley pursues her down the long hall - followed closely, then being passed by, a fast running boy from the crowd. However, when the Priest arrives at the front door, he is alone, and the boy is nowhere to be seen, neither having run past the main doorway to continue down the hall, or following Father Ritley to the doorway to watch as Mary rides away with Slater on his motorcycle.

When Evian goes to Skye's house and his mother opens the door, there is a baby in a Johnny-Jump-Up (one of those things that hangs in a door frame that the baby can jump up and down in) surrounded by people directly visible behind Skye's mother. The camera cuts to Evian, and when it cuts back to Mrs. Corrigan, the baby and the people are no longer there.

When Mary is licking the stop-sign, a lime Volkswagen drives by. A short while later, the same lime Volkswage is seen several times in different shots, either driving or parked. * The green Volkswagen Bug repeatedly seen in outside shots isn't one car driving around. All cars used in the movie were Volkswagen Bugs.

Factual errors 

When Mary's grandmother is in the principals office the principal refers to her grandmother as Mrs. Gallagher, but later on we learn that she is the mother of Mary's mother. Her last name would only be Gallagher if she was the mother of Mary's father, not her mother.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Mary is describing her ugly house, yard and dog, it is all shown in the past so, obviously the dog is shown as a puppy. When the story is in the present the puppy is replaced with an older dog to show it has aged.
