Corrected entry: 12 minutes into the movie when Cher and Dionne are writing a letter to Miss Geist, Travis comes out of an office with Miss Geist and she tells him to remember to bring their class textbooks (leading to believe she is his teacher). Later at 29 minutes, Travis invites Tai to the Valley party and asks Cher if she is in his class with Mrs/Mr Dema (leading us to believe Travis is in Dema's class, even though it was stated earlier that Travis has class with Miss Geist).

Correction: It's possible that she is an adviser or counselor for him instead of a teacher, or that Dema and Geist teach similar classes, or that Travis, being a marijuana user, forgot. Or that he was simply mistaken. It's also possible that he simply used it as a pretext to invite Tai to the party.

Greg Dwyer

Corrected entry: This happens during almost all car scenes in the movie: in close-ups of Cher - or anyone else - when driving in a roofless car (like the Jeep), their hair doesn't blow back with the wind.

Correction: I drive a convertable, and my hair NEVER blows in the wind.

Corrected entry: After coming home from the party, in the very next scene after the red hair clip suddenly appears in Cher's hair (as mentioned in another mistake), it changes to a silver clip and the red one is now on the other side of her head.

Correction: Neither of the red clips "change" to a silver clip. She puts a silver clip on her right side - above the red clip (which is directly over her ear), and she places a silver clip on her left side (directly over her ear) - right below the red clip.

Super Grover

Corrected entry: At the end of the Valley party, Cher and her friends are walking to the car. When she gets in she is holding a snowman that is glowing, but you can clearly see that the cord is not plugged in.

Correction: Have another look. First, before Summer and Tai get in the car we see the long cord that runs up the stairs, towards the house. Second, when they are in the car with Frosty the Snowman, the cord hangs over the car door, and when Tai waves the cord moves - it is white above and black below.

Super Grover

Corrected entry: When Cher is walking down the stairs in her white dress to meet Christian, and Josh gets dazzled by her beauty, you see Christian talking to Josh and Cher's dad, and there is no way (from that angle) that Josh could have seen Cher until she reached the bottom of the stairs, but it shows him staring before she even gets to the landing.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: When they show the stairs from where Josh is sitting, he can see the bottom half of the stairway. He can easily see her before she reaches the bottom.

Corrected entry: The order in which Cher and Dionne stand in the tennis line changes three times.

Correction: They are in the same order the entire time. There are two girls ahead of them at one point that you don't see later, but they could have moved up to take their turn.

reneefk

Corrected entry: When Christian comes to Cher's house and says that something is burning, Cher grabs a pot holder off the counter and to get the cookie sheet out of the oven. But when she grabs the pan, four of her fingers hang over the pot holder and touch the 'hot' pan and rack.

Correction: Cher pulls the pan and rack out at the same time. You can see that the pot holder is folded in half with part of it being on top and the rest underneath, between her fingers and the rack.

reneefk

Corrected entry: On her first day when Cher and Di are showing Tai around, Cher points out Elton to Tai, but the very next day when Cher decides to set Tai up with him, Tai asks 'Who's Elton?' It's unlikely she would have just forgotten in one day, especially since he was pretty much the only guy whose name was mentioned to her.

Shay

Correction: Maybe there were more boys named mentioned to her that we just did not see her hear. She met a lot of people in each of her classes. Therefore, she was probably still getting everyone's name straight. And Tai could have also been asking Who Elton is in terms of his social standing, etc, not him as the actual person that was mentioned to her.

Corrected entry: When Ty first gets to school and Cher and Dionne call her over during gym, Ty says she could use a 'herbal refreshment' and Cher says that they don't have tea, but they do have coke. Later when Ty is in the cafeteria talking to Travis there is tea behind them.

Correction: Maybe Cher did not know her school had tea because she never drank it. A character's mistake isn't a movie mistake.

Corrected entry: Christian is supposed to spend one semester at one parent's place in Chicago, one semester in Beverly Hills. It's clear that the movie takes place over a school year (meaning not one spring semester to the following fall): they are shown constantly as being in classes and at school (and no mention is made that it might be summer school), there are no plotlines involving summer vacation, etc. So the "other semester," when Christian comes back, has to be the winter (aka spring), not the fall. But the day (and other immediately following) he comes back to school, everyone is wearing summer-like outfits: little jackets, short sleeves, lots of exposed skin (not just Cher, who has her reasons for wearing skimpy clothes). Since the movie is filmed and set in Los Angeles, everyone writing the film would know that, contrary to popular belief, it does actually get cold in Los Angeles in the winter. January and February's average lows are 49 degrees; no way all those kids would be dressed that skimpily with the temps in the 40s and 50s.

Correction: I live in LA. It's pretty common for students to dress that way in the winter.

CocoCami

Corrected entry: Cher and Dion are walking down the hall at school, talking on their cell phones. They shut off the phones, and Cher smacks her antenna down; it breaks. You can see it at an odd angle just after.

Correction: This isn't really a mistake, it actually goes perfectly with the character: Cher can afford to break her phone as she's got enough money to buy a new one later.

Corrected entry: When Cher and Tai are smoking pot with Travis at the party, it's obvious that Cher is faking it, because the tip of the joint never glows. Tai, on the other hand, smokes it for real.

Correction: All of which sounds exactly in line with the characters and the story.

tw_stuart

Corrected entry: When Tai arrives on her first day and Amber laughs at her clothes there are two girls standing to Cher's right laughing. When Cher calls Tai over to her they have disappeared. There is no way they could have walked off without passing in front of Cher, in which case they would have been visible in shot.

Shay

Correction: In the shot where Ty is talking to them you can see there is a door where the two girls could have walked out of.

Corrected entry: When they are in the club, after Ty falls down the stairs, she ties her overshirt around her waist, in the next shot she isn't wearing it at all, then in the next shot she is wearing it over her shoulders, and a minute later it is back around her waist.

Correction: It's supposed to be obvious - it's showing how she's changing the shirt with hopes of getting someone to pay attention to her. In essence its a commonly used film technique to show that time has passed between shots.

CocoCami

Corrected entry: In the scene where Cher & Christian are in the mall shopping, Christian pulls a leather jacket out of a shopping bag. He holds it up and asks: "James Dean or Jason Priestly?". Just then he hears Ty screaming in fear, as she is being held over the railing by two hooligans. Christian then throws down his jacket to go help Ty. After the incident, when they are all leaving the mall, Cher goes over to pick up their bag of purchases. She picks up Christian's bag, which now has the leather jacket back inside. But he didn't have time to put it back in the bag during the commotion.

Correction: Cher easily could have put it back in the bag herself.

Krista

Corrected entry: In one scene, Josh and Cher are watching Ren & Stimpy. At the very beginning, Stimpy says "Ren, don't stay in the sun too long, you know how fast you burn." Now Josh and Cher talk and play around to the end of the scene which was about 5 minutes,and then you see Ren saying "Be quiet,you idiot!" There was about a 5 minute span before Stimpy's line and Ren's line, although in the actual episode Ren said "Be quiet, you idiot!" right after what Stimpy said. This mistake for was anyone who watched Ren & Stimpy a lot.

Correction: Actually, anyone who watches Ren & Stimpty alot knows that Ren says, "Be quiet, you idiot" quite a bit in every show. It is possible that Ren's remark was made AGAIN in the same episode.

Corrected entry: When Cher is going to the party with Christian she has a silver pin on her dress, yet earlier in the night when Christian picked her up she had no pin on her dress.

Correction: It was the barrette from her hair.

MoonFaery

Corrected entry: When Cher is robbed she has to call someone for a ride because Elton left her, but she says that she couldn't call Dionne because she didn't know the number of the party. Dionne had a cell phone with her because she was going to call Murry's mother - why couldn't Cher just call her cell phone?

Correction: Because she didn't know Dionne's cell phone number off by heart - she had the number on her own cell phone, but that had been stolen.

Corrected entry: In the closing credits, Dan Hedaya's character (Cher's dad) is listed as Mel Hamilton. However, Cher's last name is clearly Horowitz, as stated by Mr. Hall when he announces the number of tardies each student has. It's understandable for a child to have a different last name than her mother if the mother has remarried, but the child's name shouldn't change from the father's.

Correction: There are no strict rules about surnames these days - especially in LA. Cher's mother could have decided to keep her maiden name and may have preferred her daughter to have the same name.

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.

STP

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: 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: 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: 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: 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.

DavidK93

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.

Mistakes

In the first close-up of Cher during the driver's test, as she says, "I have an overwhelming sense of..." the top of a crewmember's head, with his short wavy hair blowing in the wind, is reflected at the bottom of the Jeep's windshield.

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.
