Deliberate mistake: In the prom scene at the end, there is a shot of a couple dancing with his hand on her rear-end. A counselor comes over and hits the boy's hand to make him move it. He complies, they kiss, and he puts his hand back when the counselor leaves. The camera cuts away to a different shot, and then returns to an over-head wide shot of the crowd. Down in the lower left-hand corner you can see the exact scene with the couple and counselor being filmed.
Trivia: Several actresses with bit parts in this film went on to bigger and better things. The English teacher is played by Margaret Colin ("Independence Day", "The Devil's Own"). Benny's snobby brunette friend in gym class is Gina Gershon, and the blonde girl eying Duckie at the very end is Kristy Swanson (credited as "Duckette").Krista
