Can't Buy Me Love

Factual error: This movie centers around characters attending a Tucson, AZ High School, yet Patrick Dempsey has his own neighborhood lawn service. Anyone who has lived in/near Tucson knows that large lawns (especially containing big, thick trees like that of love interest Amanda Peterson) don't exist in Tucson and it's laughable that he would own a riding mower or have a feasible business with it.


Factual error: At the beginning, when Cindy and her friends return from shopping, Cindy's mother asks for her credit card. Cindy hands her several cards and her mother chastises her, saying that she was only supposed to take the Neiman Marcus card. Tucson has never had a Neiman Marcus.


Factual error: When Cindy returns from the shopping trip with her girlfriends and hands over the credit cards to her mother, her mother chastises her for using more than just the 'Neiman Marcus' card. There is no Neiman Marcus in Tucson. The only Neiman Marcus was located in Phoenix.


Continuity mistake: When Ronald is in the store talking to Cindy about renting her and the salesman is looking at them through the telescope, Ronald has the money in his hand fanned out. When the camera cuts to the store, the money is not fanned out in his hand anymore.
