Fast Times at Ridgemont High

Audio problem: After Spicoli crashes Jefferson's car, Jefferson's brother says "My brother's gonna kill us - he's gonna kill us" yet his mouth isn't moving during those lines (even though shown from the back you can still tell). Then camera faces him and he now matches the words.

Factual error: If we are to assume the film is in chronological order over the course of a single school year, then why does the football scene come after Christmas has occurred? High school football season ends well before the holiday season. (00:47:00)
