Corrected entry: During the first shot at the Museum of Natural History, when it shows the Neolithic mans penis, you can see that the hairy man is circumcised. During this time, thousands of years ago, they did not have the technology nor the ability to circumcise. (01:45:00)
Corrected entry: In the final scene, when Mr. McAlister is describing the one time he has seen Tracy Flick since he left Omaha, he is in Washington, DC. He says he was visiting monuments and was "on his way to the Holocaust Museum." But he is walking north from the White House, up 16th Street. In reality, to be heading for the Holocaust Museum he'd have to be heading south from the White House down 14th Street.
Corrected entry: There is a scene where Matthew Broderick is rushing around trying to get things ready for a rendezvous with his best friend's wife. After making all preparations, he is shown getting into his car with a big sweat stain down his back. Yet a few minutes later when he gets out of his car the stain is magically gone.
Corrected entry: When Reece Witherspoon is driving like mad to the dumpster to throw out all the posters she destroyed, she's constantly moving her hands back on forth on the steering wheel yet the background shows she is driving on a straight road.
Tammy Metzler: If you died right now, I would throw myself into one of my Dad's cement trucks and get poured into your tomb.
Trivia: Near the end of the movie after Mr McAllister gets fired and we see full-screen shots of newspaper articles detailing the election scandal, if you pause the film at the third newspaper article (with the headline 'Carver Student Plans Lawsuit') and read it, you'll see that the director had a bit of fun with the viewing audience by inserting a couple of paragraphs into the middle of the story: 'If you've paused the film in order to read this entire article, your time would be better spent renting "Citizen Ruth" from your local video store. Do you know how hard and unthankful (?) a task it is to write these fake few stories for newspaper movie pages? I've got better things to do.'
