Girl, Interrupted

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film, when Suzanna is talking to the psychiatrist that knows her parents, you see the same black car drive down the road twice, through the window behind Suzanna's head.

Correction: No mistake there; people do drive in circles and up and down the street.

Corrected entry: In Daisy's house in the scene where Britanny Murphy asks Angelina Jolie to give her a valium we can see that there aren't any scratches on Daisy's arm, but in the next shot where Lisa grabs Daisy's arm it is covered with scratches.

Correction: If you look at Daisy's arm when she's blocking the door from Lisa, you can see that there ARE scratches.

Corrected entry: After Susanna and Lisa got into Daisy's room, Susanna is laying on her bed writing in her notebook when Lisa sneaks up behind her. In the book, Susanna has written a quote from Daisy saying "If you lived here, you'd be home now." However, later in the movie at the ice cream shop, Daisy is telling someone about her new apartment that her dad bought her, in which she says she has a sign that says the same thing Susanna wrote in her notebook, while all of the other girls are eavesdropping. The scene with Susanna writing the quote before it was even said was obviously misplaced. (00:40:07)

Correction: Part of the character of Daisy is that she tells everyone the 'good' things about her life over and over, to anyone who listens. This is more apparent in the book than the movie, but Daisy would definitely have told all of the girls about, "if you lived here, you'd be home now," many times. This also explains the look on Susanna's face in the ice-cream shop: a sort of 'here we go again' look.

Corrected entry: When Lisa asks Daisy if she has a tub upstairs, Daisy say that she doesn't. But when Susanna finds Daisy hanging in the upstairs bathroom, there is a tub.

Correction: If you look closely, it's only part of the shower stall. It's not big enough to sit in.

Correction: asI think she just didn't want to share her tub with Lisa.

Corrected entry: In the scene at Daisy's house, when she hangs herself, and Angelina goes in her pockets to look for money. Well if you look at Daisy's eyes, they move very clearly as she is swaying to one side.

Correction: You can see that what is hanging is a dummy. Her "eyes" do not move. You can see how much different her face looks, due to it being a dummy.

Factual error: When Suzanna and Lisa are at Daisy's house, Daisy lays out money for Lisa so that she can get pancakes, and the bill she laid down is one of the new bills. This movie is set in the 60s so of course they wouldn't have the new bills, considering they didn't start making them until 1998.

Susanna: What happened to Polly?
Lisa: What needs to happen? No one's ever gonna' kiss her, man. You know, they're building a new Disneyland in Florida. If I could have any job in the world, I'd be a professional Cinderella. You could be Snow White. And Polly could be Minnie Mouse. Everyone would hug her and kiss her and love her and no-one would ever know what was in that big ol' head of hers, you know?
