Corrected entry: During the Val party, Dion's boyfriend Murray shaves his head. Later when he is teaching Dion to drive he has a hat on, but you can see his the back of his head, which has all sorts of hair. Every scene that follows he's wearing a hat, except at the wedding at the end, he's back to a shaved head.

Correction: The movie takes place throughout a school year. Months may have passed between the time that Murray shaves his head at the party and when he's teaching Dionne how to drive, and at the wedding he could have just decided to shave it again.


Corrected entry: Cher gives Miss Gist a sonnet by Shakespeare, Sonnet 18. Dionne reads it aloud. However, the two lines that was read are way, way apart. The first, "Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May" is the third line of the first stanza. The second line read, "But thy eternal summer shall not fade" is the first line of the third stanza.

Correction: Cher was quoting from the sonnet, but this doesn't mean she has to quote the whole thing. She even says she took it from a study guide.

Corrected entry: How did Cher know that Christian was spending half the year with one parent in another state and half the year in Beverly Hills when they obviously had never met before?

Correction: She says the "the buzz on Christian..." It's unlikely that she would know, but possible.


Corrected entry: Cher, Dionne, and Tai decide to skip class to see "the new Christian Slater." Christian Slater only made three movies in 1994-1995, and they were all rated R. So whichever one they were planning to see, the 16 year old main characters wouldn't have been able to get in to see it alone.


Correction: It's a pretty common practice (at least here in the States) for 16 year-olds to sneak into/have admission granted to an R-rated movie.


Corrected entry: After the fight Cher has with Tai, she takes a walk and passes a store. She clearly has no money on her and no purse but she purchases a dress.

Correction: Cher routinely carries money in her bra.


Corrected entry: At the end after Cher and Josh make out and she says"Well you can guess what happened next". Cuts to the two teachers Wedding, and she narrates "As if, I'm only 16 and this is California, not Kentucky!" As she's saying that and the shot is showing the back of the couple from a far distance. It shows that Mr. Hall has a full head of hair, but he's bald! The guy is for some reason a double that was there for no sense in the movie.

Correction: The reason that the guy had a full head of hair was because it's an imaginary clip of Cher and Josh getting married, then she says "As if, I'm only 16 and this is California, not Kentucky." Then it switches to the actual wedding of the teachers, Mr. Hall and Miss Giest.


Corrected entry: Towards the beginning of the film, Ms. Geist reminds Travis to bring his textbook to class, but later in another scene when he is passing out flyers for a party, Travis contradicts himself by saying he has a different teacher. (Travis: "You have Deemo right?" Cher: "Geist").

Correction: It is quite possible that he is talking about a different subject. Remember this is high school and some teachers teach more then one subject.


Corrected entry: When Cher is helping Josh & the lawyer to sort out papers and the lawyer asks "where are the August 28 files" or something the camera goes to Cher and she has her hair over her shoulders. When it comes back her hair is all swept back.

Correction: She might have swept it back in the intervening shots.


Other mistake: When Josh and Cher are driving home from a party, they show a shot of the car. It's a blue sports car that passes a Hertz car rental sign. When Elton is driving Cher home from the party in the Valley, they show the exact same shot of the blue sports car passing the Hertz car rental sign.

Trivia: Writer/director Amy Heckerling was in the middle of writing the script when she saw Alicia Silverstone in an Aerosmith video on MTV, and immediately knew that was who she wanted to play Cher.

More trivia for Clueless

Question: What did Cher mean when she said, "this is a bigger disaster than Malibu"? What happened to Malibu?

Answer: Malibu is a hazardous place to live. It's constantly threatened by wildfires, which burn out the underbrush. Then when it rains, there's nothing on the ground to keep the mud from sliding down the hills, so mudslides are a problem, too. She was probably referring to one of the many times that this has happened.
