Jawbreaker

Plot hole: The whole point of the deception is that Fern Mayo, the geek, turns overnight into Vylett. No one at school has a clue about her real identity till Marcia and Courtney put up posters. So this deception carries on for several weeks before the two girls expose it. There is no way this would work. A school will not simply accept a new student without bothering to register her, yet when Fern Mayo just doesn't turn up to school one day, and Vylett does indeed, none of the teachers find this strange, or bother enrolling "Vylett" officially in school.

Continuity mistake: At the end when it is revealed that Courtney killed Liz, we see several of the teenagers standing right in front of the stage. As Courtney walks through the crowd several of the teenagers have moved away from the stage and further back in the crowd. They couldn't have moved that fast through the rest of the crowd.

More quotes from Jawbreaker

Question: The song playing during the opening titles is "Volcano Girls" by Veruca Salt. The song seemed to "shape the film", but wasn't on the soundtrack. Why?

Answer: The band had recently broken up when Jawbreaker was released, so maybe that had something to do with it. Or maybe just a good old-fashioned disagreement about how much VS would be paid for using their song? I agree, the soundtrack seemed somehow empty without it.
