Goofs

When Mark Darcy goes to pick up Bridget's diary from the table (just after Bridget goes off to her bedroom to change into her 'genuinely tiny knickers'), the diary is on the 29th November. The next shot, of him actually picking up the book, shows it to be open on the 10th/11th November.

When Mark leans in to kiss Bridget outside her door (as Shazzer, Jude and Tom look on from the car), Mark's head is tilted to his right in shots of Bridget and to his left in shots of him so that neither character is obscured by the others' head.
When we first see Bridget writing in her diary, listing the type of person she's not going to get involved with (with narration), she is writing on the left-hand page. In the next shot, she is at the bottom of the right-hand page.
After the dinner party, Darcy is talking to Bridget at the bottom of the stairs and his position changes between shots.

The reflection of a camera crane is visible on the boot of Daniel's car as Bridget runs round to the passenger side.
