Not Another Teen Movie (2001) Poster

Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

In the beginning of the movie, when Janey's grandparents walk into her room, she gasps, but her lips don't move.
When the two boys are both after the girl, one of them runs across the street, then he dodges through cars. When one of the cars stop, the car in the left hand corner of the screen seems to be a face of a Chevorlet Metro. But when that car stops and beeps its horn, its horn is off audio. Chevy Metros have a high pitched horn. Chevy Metros don't have a regular car horn audio.
The band in the background of the prom dance sequence are playing/not playing at inappropriate times in the music.

Boom mic visible 

Reflection in the mirror on the wall in studio still image 3.

Character error 

Janey recalls Christmas of 1989 by saying that "Daniel Day-Lewis won the Best Actor award for My Left Foot", when in fact the ceremony took place months later.

Continuity 

When The Wise Janitor is sitting on the bench with Jake, the zipper on his raincoat moves up and down between scenes.
When the girl with the glasses is talking to her dad, the ace of Spades in his hat changes between being straight and being on an angle in his hat between shots.
The door to the hotel room where Jake finds Austin and Priscilla is on an interior corridor, but the scene inside the room shows a draped window on the same wall as the door.
When the girl with the glasses was painting, she had paint all over her overalls and hands. When she entered the principal's office, the paint stains on her overalls and hands were all gone.
The position of the coach's headset cord alternates between hanging straight down and hanging over the microphone when he is talking with his assistant coach.

When Katherine is giving Janie her "make-over", she is close to Janie's face. When they switch to a shot of Janie, Katherine is much farther away from her as she takes off Janie's glasses. Then they switch back to the original shot.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Football season is depicted as taking place after Spring Break and just a few days before the senior prom (which is attended by freshmen, no less). Furthermore the football games are carried out with no regard for rules or logic. It's all humorous fantasy.
Varying from scene to scene that includes the character of Malik, between theatrical and deleted footage, his hair changes inconsistently in length and style.

This is clearly intentional - he switches through just about every stereotypically "black" hairstyle. It's consistent with his status as the parody of the "token" black character.

Revealing mistakes 

When Janey falls through the stairs, it is obviously a stunt double who has well developed arm muscles.
