When Edward and Bella are walking and discussing in the green house , there are two girls walking in front of them during the close up shots. The two girls walking in front of them change position and one of them is not there anymore when the camera shot is further away.
In the scene where Bella is next to her truck the day after the "accident", you can see the mic in the reflection of the truck window. You can see it several times during this scene-as Mike walks up and asks Bella to Prom.
In the book, it is clearly said that the Cullens never touch the food on their plates. The only time that they do eat is when Bella asks Edward if he can eat food, and he takes a bite of pizza. Even so, in the movie, you can see Emmett eating in the background of a cafeteria scene. (as stated by Stephenie Meyer, they had to keep re-shooting this scene because he kept accidentally eating).
Many of the flags in the cafeteria are wrong. The Kenyan flag (green, red and black, with a shield) is upside down; the black stripe should be at the top. Another flag is blue, white, and red, with a red star. This is a Yugoslav flag from before the breakup of the country in the 1990's and is no longer used.
In the dress shop, two flags are in front of the building across the street; the American flag and the Oregon flag (blue with a yellow symbol). Washington's flag is green with a picture of George Washington.
Throughout the film, Esme's name is pronounced differently by Edward. When Edward is telling Bella that he and then Esme were changed by Carlisle, he pronounces her name as "Ez-mee", but when he is introducing Bella to his family in their kitchen, he pronounces her name as "Ez-may".
In the cafeteria scene when Edward says "I'd rather hear your theories", Bella replies with "I have considered radioactive spiders and Kryptonite", in allusion to Edward's abilities. As the statement of radioactive spiders is correct, Kryptonite is not responsible for Superman's powers.
When Bella is searching for information about creatures with the same characteristics as Edward's, you can see some information about Apontamkin (The Cold One: Apontamkin). In the next web page, the creature's/god's name is Apontampkin.
After Bella's accident in the school parking lot, the overhead shot shows Angela running and kneeling beside Tyler's van; when the shot moves to ground level, you see Angela run in and kneel down again.
When Bella is shown in the hospital after being attacked, there is the sound and image of her electrocardiogram with a steady heart rate in the background. After Edward suggests that she move to Florida, Bella becomes visibly agitated, but her heart rate according to the EKG doesn't change.
In the scene after Edward saved Bella from the car and people gather around her there is a close-up of the Cullens around their car near the end of the parking lot. When they zoom out in a later shot the car is gone. In the next shot we see the Cullens get in the car and drive off. They seem to leave twice.
When Bella and Edward stop at the police station to see why Bella's father and Carlisle are still there at such a late hour, Bella goes into the station without her bag, which is presumably in Edward's car. They say goodbye. Later that evening, Bella pores over the book she purchased at the book store, which was in her bag.
When Edward first brings Bella to the Cullen's house, we see that there is a two car garage on the entrance level. In the garage scene, however, we clearly see three cars parked in the garage: Emmett's Jeep, Rosalie's convertible, and Carlisle's sedan.
When Rosalie, Emmett, and Edward are leading the tracker away, Rosalie's hair is curled when they leave the garage, then frizzy when she rubs the jacket on the tree, then curled again when they realize the tracker changed course.
After Edward reveals himself in the sunlight and tries to frighten Bella, he jumps into a tree. Bella walks under the tree and leans up towards him, while he leans forward towards her. In the close ups they are maybe 6 inches apart, his face beneath his arms, but in the wide shots his face is above his arms, and their faces are a couple feet apart.
When Bella first sits next to Edward in biology and he visibly recoils, two samples are on their shared desk. Edward nudges one towards her and pulls the other towards himself. In the next shot, they're next to each other in the center of the desk.
As Bella and Edward's fathers are at the second crime scene, Bella asks Edward to turn in to park up. The car moves right to turn in, then the next shot is the car still in lane, and hasn't moved right yet.
In the driving scene in Port Angeles, Edward speeds into oncoming traffic, but while in the car the outside background moves at a very slow speed. Then when an outside shot of the car zips around other cars on the street it is at very fast speeds.
When the Cullens are playing baseball, Rosalie slides into home. When she stands up, there is a large stain on the right side of her white pants from the slide. Later, when they are in the garage getting into the various cars to run from James, Rosalie turns away, and her pants are unstained.
After Bella goes to the book store in Port Angeles and buys the book about the legends, she puts it in a bag to carry it. After Edward rescues her and they are driving, they get out at the police station and say good night but she does not have the bag with her. But the next scene she is at home with the book searching the Internet for information.
When Edward takes Bella to his home to meet his family, Esmee and Dr. Cullen are in the kitchen cooking. Rosalee is making the salad. When Bella responds to Esmee's "I hope you are hungry" comment, Rosalee drops the salad bowl and salad is on the floor. In the next scene, Esmee walks around the counter and there is no salad on the floor. When Edward and Bella leave, Esmee tells Rosalee to clean up the mess, and the salad is on the floor again.
In the garage scene, Jasper is seen bent over in the background putting things in the trunk of the car. When the scene switches to a close-up of Alice, Jasper is standing upright and looking in Alice's direction.
When Edward and Bella arrive at the baseball game, his vehicle is facing the field. When they run back to the vehicle to leave, it is still facing the field. However as he drives off, it is now facing away from the field.
When Edward and Bella are talking in a line of people, Bella trips and pushes the girl in front of her, who isn't wearing a hat, a foot forward. Then, in the next shot from in front of the line, the girl has been replaced with one wearing a hat and a different colored shirt.
In the forest scene where Edward jumps off to a tree, he leans closer to Bella's face when she asks why he hated her so much when they met. When he answers, Edward is shown sitting straight up (and far from Bella) to deliver his first sentence of "I did, only for making me want you so badly." The next sentence, Edward is seen leaning over closer again to utter his next line of "I'm still not sure if I can control myself."
When Bella is fleeing James and Edward appears on the side of the truck as she's driving on the close up his hair is spiked up. Zoom out for the wider shot and it's flat over his forehead (likely the stunt double). The next close up it's spiked again.
In the first cafeteria scene right after Mike falls and right before Jessica scoots closer to Bella you can see Jessica bend over and her face is in the bottom left side of the screen. Then the shot changes and she moves next to Bella.
In the scene where Bella and Charlie first go into Charlie's house and they are going into Bella's room, there is a shoulder of a crew member in the shot. It is next to the door frame on the right side.
During the La Push Beach scene, a lighthouse can be seen in the background. There is not a lighthouse at La Push. The lighthouse is actually Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, about 2 miles off shore at Cannon Beach (Oregon Coast).
In the scene where Bella is doing research on vampires, there is an illustration portraying a vampire in the Indian legends. However the original picture illustrates the devil in the biggest medieval manuscript, the Codex Gigas.
Bella starts school in March. A few weeks pass before Billy and Jacob come over "to watch the Mariners game," meaning baseball season has started. Later, when Bella is talking to her mom, she says Phil is still in spring training. Minor League spring training ends in March, before the Major League baseball season, but it is possible that Phil is still in Spring Training as some players participate in a team's "extended spring training" before joining one of the organizations minor league teams during the season.
This series does not conform to traditional vampiric legends, such as mirror reflections, burning in sunlight, wooden stakes, repelling from crosses, and so on. Any difference with vampire nature as stated in other books and movies cannot be considered a goof.
In the first gym scene, a girl who looks about 6 years old is running around in the background. However, many high schools also have a pre school in the same area, especially if they teach child development and childcare, or health and social care.
When Bella is running away if you look very closely when she opens her bedroom door you see Edward standing to the side waiting for her. However, in the book it is explained that in Edward's fear he climbs into her window to help her pack and figure out what she is going to say to Charlie.
When Edward is lying next to Bella on her bed, moonlight (sunlight reflected off the moon) is coming in through her window and hitting his face, chest, and hand, but they are not sparkling. However, this could be because Edward is not in *direct* sunlight, therefore it has no effect on him.
The second time Alice pitches to both Rosalie and Jasper, the runner is running from second base before she throws the ball. After both have hit the ball, the runner is just leaving second base. However, Esme states at the start of the games that "she knows they cheat", so this could just be an example of them cheating.
In the cafeteria scene "edible art" Bella is eating something when discussing "La Push" then, in the next scene she seen at the salad bar preparing her lunch. However, Bella was only eating a cucumber slice, which she could have easily gotten from a friend's lunch.
In the garage, Edward asks Rosalie and Esme to put on Bella's clothing to mislead the tracker. Edward throws clothes towards Esme. Esme was in the scene for quite a while, getting stuff in the background. She was just out of frame when he addressed her.
There's a scene where Edward and Bella are talking in the forest, it's raining heavily and they are soaking wet. Soon after they are shown talking in another forest location, and appear to be completely dry. This could, however, indicate the passage of time, especially given their change of clothes. It is therefore assumed that their conversation takes place over several days.
After Edward saves Bella from the car crash, she overhears him, Carlisle, and Rosalie talking in the hospital. Vampires usually talk so fast and low that human ears cannot understand them, but they can also talk slowly and quietly. They were talking "human" because other people were around.
When Bella is with Edward in Port Angeles she has a red purse with her. When he drops her off at the police station she does not take her purse with her. However, Bella may have just left her purse in Edward's car in the rush and commotion.
Victoria is seen twice in the last scenes (at prom). In different parts of the movie it is shown that Edward can hear thoughts from great distances and in loud places. Thus, in these last scenes, Edward should have been able to hear Victoria's thoughts and should have acted on that.
As Bella, Jasper and Alice are driving to Phoenix, Bella calls her mom's cell phone so James wouldn't have heard her message and shouldn't have been able to call Bella back to trick her into meeting him.
When Bella and Charlie first drive into Forks at the beginning of the film they stop at some traffic lights. The camera zooms out to reveal a large truck carrying logs driving in front of the screen going right to left. However, there is no one in the cab driving the truck.
During Bella and Edward's "formal" introduction in the biology classroom, Edward's makeup changes between shots - his face is ALWAYS gray but his neck and ears are not. It's particularly noticeable as they leave the classroom after - you can see where the makeup stops a few centimeters down his neck and reveals his natural skin color.
The pepper spray that Charlie gives Bella has a green label. A green label means it is a "training canister" and contains water instead of pepper spray for training purposes. Canisters containing actual pepper spray have red labels.
When Edward slides his arm under Bella in the parking lot scene, where he pushes the car away, Bella's hair is inside her coat, than outside, then in again. It looks like the stunt double had her hair out and Kristen Stewart had hers inside her coat.
When Bella and Edward are discussing her theories at the salad bar, you can see Robert Pattinson mouthing the words "radio active spiders and kryptonite" as Kristen Stewart says them. Since she is the only one immune to his telepathy, this cannot be used as mitigation.
When Bella comes to school in the beginning of the movie, you can see a group of people playing hackisac. They are clearly pretending, and are all moving at the same time as if they were all getting the hackisac simultaneously.
After Angela secretly takes a picture of Bella, she looks at the back of the camera as if to check the picture. But there is a cover over the LCD screen so this would be impossible. It also happens after she takes a picture later in the film.
In the scene where Bella is walking down the front steps of her porch, right before she slips on the ice, the viewer can see the outline(s) of knee pads behind her jeans. It's especially noticeable since she's wearing skinny jeans.
In the first scene, with the little deer, you can see that it's not the same animal. The first one, drinking water, has a dark and white tail and then, when it is running, it changes to a deer with a dark tail only, with no white fur.
The first time Bella and Charlie have dinner in the diner, she orders a burger and fries. After both reaching for the ketchup, Charlie hands her the bottle and Bella proceeds to put ketchup on her fries, but there is no ketchup coming out of the bottle.
The goof items below may give away important plot points.
In the hospital scene in Phoenix Bella's oxygen tubes change location throughout the scene. when it is a close up, the tubes follow the line of her cheekbones, and when the camera zooms out the tubes are lower down, halfway between her eyes and mouth.
In the scene in which Edward and Bella are dancing in the gazebo, when the two dancing couples stop dancing and leave, one couple walks down the steps to the side walk, the frame changes and they walk down the steps again.
In the kitchen, after Bella has packed her things to run from James, in the first shot of her face, we can see a bottle of water on the kitchen bench and in the next shot of Bella's face, there is no bottle.
During the scene in the ballet school, immediately after James bites Bella's wrist, she isn't wearing her bracelet. However, every subsequent time we see the bite, at least part of the bracelet is visible.
When Bella asks where Edward is in the hospital, it pans to a brief shot of Edward slumped against the wall, with his head facing towards Bella. In further scenes he is still slumped against the wall, but his head is facing the opposite direction. The picture behind him and the lamp on the table beside him also move.
In the car scene where Jasper and Alice are taking Bella to Arizona, you see the car driving through California hills/savannah and then when the camera is zoomed into Bella in the backseat, you see Oregon forest in the car's rear window.
In the very last scene, Victoria turns to leave the balcony overlooking the gazebo where Bella and Edward are dancing, with her hair tied up. As the camera cuts to her leaving down the stairs, her hair is flowing behind her. Victoria pulled out her hair pin at the top of the stairs.
After Bella is out of the hospital she still wears a leg brace when she is heading to prom. But she doesn't have any bandage or mark on her right arm from when she was bitten. However, the venom that changes human to vampire heals the body in that process, thus also the skin. There might be a scar, but the wound would certainly be healed well enough for Bella to go without bandages.
