Character error 

On Poppy's first day at lunch, she tells her dorm mates she can't eat the food because she is "pescetarian Monday through Wednesday, fruitarian Thursady through Sunday and vegetarian ALWAYS". This isn't possible as pescetarian's eat fish and vegetarians don't. The two were mixed up.

When Poppy arrives at Abbey Mount she's talking to Kate and says "I choose my friends, and FYI you don't make the cut." Then Kate replies with "I'm sure that comment would be a lot worse if I knew what FYI meant." But as they're walking to lunch Kate is telling Poppy the rules and she clearly says FYI.

At the beginning of the film, Poppy jumps into the ocean yet when she emerges a few seconds later, she is almost completely dry. Even in Malibu sun this isn't possible. Also Poppy is very concerned when her clothes get wet at the boarding school but this does not bother her when she jumps into the ocean.

When Mrs Kingsley is leaning through the car window talking to Poppy she uses the finger of her left hand because her right hand is on the car when the camera is behind her but when the camera is in front of her she is using a finger on the right hand.

On the website of Abbey Mount school it says it admits boarders from the ages of 11-17. During the credits, the first thing that comes up is a workbook belonging to Poppy and you see that she is supposed to be in Lower Sixth. Since, if they have Lower Sixth they must have an Upper Sixth then Abbey Mount would admit girls from 11-18.

Errors in geography 

Kate and the others tell Poppy that Freddie got caught with a girl in "the third grade". British schools refer to "years" not "grades".
