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, 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.

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.

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.

More trivia for Clueless

Question: Cher claims her jeep has dual side airbags. That seems ridiculous for an open top vehicle. Does that model really come with side airbags, or was that supposed to be a 'clueless' comment?


Chosen answer: When she says "dual side", Cher is referring to the driver side and passenger side airbags (which are installed in the dashboard in front of each seat), not airbags on the side of the Jeep (aka in the doors).
