Anachronisms 

In the opening, there is a reference made to Elle Woods crying at the age of 3 whenever she was taken to BabyGap. BabyGap didn't exist until 1990, when the character was probably about 9 or 10. Even GapKids didn't open until 1986, well after the character would have been 3.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

In the hearing for Bruiser's Bill, Elle puts Bruiser in his bag on the table beside her. You can hear her say "my best friend" but as there's a cut to a close-up of Bruiser, you can see Elle's lips in the right hand corner, forming the words "my best friend" silently.

The first time Elle introduces the Snap Cup, she is holding the cup in her right hand and paper in her left. When it comes time to snap she makes a snapping motion with her left hand while still holding the paper and a snapping sound is heard. There is no way her fingers could actually make the snapping sound with the paper in the way.

Errors in geography 

You see a crowd of people on the Capitol steps as Elle enters the Capitol Building. In fact, all of the buildings on Capitol Hill are connected by halls underground and people who visit and work at the capital almost never go from one building to another above ground.

Factual errors 

In the scrapbook of the opening sequence, there is a page with "First day at Harvard" spelled out in Scrabble pieces. The value of the tiles are not correct Scrabble values, as A has a value of 2 (should be 1), V has a value of 12 (instead of 4), R is 7 (instead of 1), etc.
The chamber that the House of Representatives meets in does not have assigned seating or desks at every seat.
Elle Woods' license plate is not a legal Massachusetts plate. Plates in Mass have only 6 characters including spaces, her plate has 8.

Spoilers

Continuity

Revealing mistakes 

In the last scene when Emmet asks Elle where she would like to live.In the next shot when the White House is shown and then the shot comes back to Elle, Emmet can no longer be seen beside her, as it clear it's a computer generated shot of Elle.
