Audio problem: (This is extremely difficult to see and you have to concentrate to notice it). When Cher and Tai are talking in Cher's lounge room after the workout, Cher says "something good for mankind or the planet for a couple of hours", but her words don't match her mouth moving for 'hours'.

Continuity mistake: While Tai is in the livingroom, Cher and Josh are in the kitchen as Josh fixes himself a turkey sandwich. When they reach the livingroom doorway he's taking a bite out of it as he holds the sandwich is in his left hand, but next shot it's in his right as he continues taking a bite.

Continuity mistake: During the collection for the disaster relief, when Travis places the box down on the counter all the jars fall over, but next shot they're upright again.

Continuity mistake: When Cher invites Christian over, she's wearing a lot of eyeshadow. Lots of pink and lots of colour. It's even clear after she falls off the bed. But when she shows him to the door, which is right after her falling off, her makeup is different.

Continuity mistake: When Josh is taking Cher driving for the first time and Josh says "This is America we drive on the right side of the road." You see him saying that and then there is a cut of Cher and you see the curb like it's right next to her but you also see the curb right next to Josh - could be a one lane street but when they show you the car it is a 2 lane street.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Cher is waiting for Christian to call and packing her dad's suitcase up, you can see the shadow of the camera equipment moving up on the wall.

Continuity mistake: When Cher is sitting on the couch with Josh doing her hair, one shot of her from the back shows all her hair in the clip, but in another shot of her from the back, only some parts of her hair are in the clip, in half up-half down style.

Continuity mistake: When Cher and Josh are sitting on the stairs near the end, Cher's hair is either behind her ear or loose (I can't remember which). When they next show her it is the opposite.

Visible crew/equipment: When Cher goes to pick up Dionne at the beginning of the movie, you can see the reflection of a camera in the bottom left hand window of Dionne's house.

Continuity mistake: When Murray parks the car in front of the Valley party house, the car blocks the stairs, but next shot when they get out of the car it's much farther up.

Continuity mistake: When Travis gives Tai the invitation to the Valley party when she, Cher and Dionne are walking, the notebook flips over in Tai's hand between the wideshot and last close-up - note its flap.

Other mistake: Near the start when Cher asks Tai how old she is, Tai says, 'I'll be 16 in May.' Then Cher says, 'Well, my birthday is in April, so as someone older than you...' But throughout the movie it is said that Cher is already 16. No birthdays are shown. You'd think that a rich girl in Beverly Hills would celebrate her birthday.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, when Josh and Cher talk on the stairs, the shot changes to a close-up and they have moved from their previous positions. They are slightly closer together, and their legs are positioned differently.

Continuity mistake: When Cher and Josh are sitting on the couch talking, she puts several clips in her hair. When shown from the front, they are in one position, and when shown from the side, they're in another.

Continuity mistake: After coming home from the party, Josh and Cher are talking while watching Ren and Stimpy. Cher's combing her hair and picks up a clip beside her, to her left. Before she has a chance to put that clip in her hair, when she picks up the phone that clip is already in her hair.

Continuity mistake: When Cher is laying on the bed watching a movie with Christian, he gets up. He is lying with his face down, but in the next shot he's lying on his back right before getting up and walking towards the door.

Continuity mistake: At the valley party, after Travis tries to see how Tai is while she's laid out on the counter, Cher pushes him all the way out of the kitchen so that his entire body is in the doorframe. In the next shot, he is several steps back into the kitchen as he turns to go back into the other room.

Continuity mistake: When Cher's driving instructor tells her she failed her test, the instructor is sitting next to her, then we see a brief shot of Cher crying, then we see the instructor out of the car and at the front of it. The camera wasn't off him long enough for him to get out of the car and walk that far, and we didn't hear a door opening or closing.

Continuity mistake: When Cher's report card comes in the mail, the date on the envelope says "02-09-93", however the date on the report card itself says "09/09/95".

Continuity mistake: When Cher, her father, and Josh are sitting at the table eating dinner, Cher can be seen holding an asparagus. She takes one bite of it, then when the camera zooms in on her it is suddenly a lot smaller than when she was holding it in the last shot.

Josh: You want to practice parking?
Cher: What's the point? Everywhere you go has valet.

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.
