When Sky is getting his hat and cigar as "props" for his stag party, as he leaves the room wearing the hat and holding the cigar. In the second shot as he walks past Sophie, there is a long loose cord hanging down from the brim of the hat - which wasn't there in the first shot.
After the final scene of the movie Meryl Streep, Christine Baranski and Julie Walters appear on a sound stage in matching 1970s glam-rock costumes and sing "Dancing Queen". When they finish Meryl 'asks' the audience if they want an encore. The three ladies are then joined by Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgard who are similarly attired. Along with Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper, they provide a rendition of "Waterloo" as the main credits roll.
The song (and scene that accompanied the song), "The Name of The Game", was removed from the film, but reinstated as a special feature in the DVD release.
