Factual error: The women graduate from Middlebury College, but the location used in the opening college dorm scene is in Brooklyn, not in Vermont, nor is it Middlebury. At first the Chapel spire appears to be "The Old Chapel" on the Middlebury campus, but as the camera pans down, any Middlebury alum would catch the error.
Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film, as Bette Midler, Diane Keaton and Goldie Hawn sing the song "You Don't Own Me," watch Goldie's shoes. For the first portion of the song, which takes place inside, she is wearing spiked-heel shoes with multiple straps. Then, as they dance through the doors onto the street, she is wearing shoes with a single strap and a much thicker heel.
Elise: You've always been jealous of me, even in college! Because I was blonde and beautiful, and could have any guy I wanted.
Brenda: Could and did! All the senior class and half the faculty.
Elise: It was the sixties.
