Corrected entry: When the T-birds begin singing "Prowlin'" at the gas station, Louis is wearing light grey pants, but when they are shown on the stage he has blue jeans on, while everyone else is still in the same clothes they had on at the gas station.
Corrected entry: In gym class when the T-Birds are pushing the tackling sled toward Coach Calhoun, the push it into him so that he loses his balance and falls down. But no part of his body is actually touching the sled.
Corrected entry: During "Reproduction," when the teacher asks if there are any question, Johnny takes out a Playboy magazine and asks, "Yeah, I was wondering if you could tell me where she lives?" Goose follows by saying, "Hey, what is this?" but he appears to be pointing at her bare bottom, and I presume he already knows what that is.
Corrected entry: After the big chase outside the bowling alley, how does Michael get close enough to light Stephanie's cigarette without her seeing that he's riding a motorcycle?
Corrected entry: How can everybody hear the T-Birds & Pink Ladies during the song at the bowling alley.
Corrected entry: During the song "We'll Be Together" a number of characters are walking in a line. Watch Michael, the actor looks really bored, then suddenly seems to realise they're doing a real take and a huge smile appears on his face.
Corrected entry: In the scene of "Who's that guy?" Davey Jaworski goes outside saying "where is that rat-face." And then Michael comes. Davey tries to get back inside the bowl-a-rama to Dolores but cannot. Then about 5 seconds later everyone else has came and Davey is back in and is standing above Johnny. Nobody could have come that fast and Davey seemed to get in to where the T-Birds and Pink Ladies and everyone else easily this time.
Corrected entry: Even though Stephanie and probably a few of the Pink Ladies and T-Birds thought Michael was dead, none of them seem to have contacted the Police about the death or at least the disappearance of him; they didn't know it was Michael but surely they'd have had the Police check out the scene for the mystery biker?
Corrected entry: When Michael is helping Stephanie rewrite her essay, she writes that Hamlet was upset because he caught his mother and uncle "doing it in the sack". Hamlet was upset that they got married, but he never actually walked in on them.
Corrected entry: At the end where everyone is singing in their graduation gowns, when they grab their caps and throw them up, you see in the front Stephanie grab hers but it drops off her head.
Corrected entry: When everybody was dancing on the bowling alleys, wouldn't they be falling down because of how slick the lanes are?
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie in the hall everybody closes their lockers even though the locks are locked.
Corrected entry: When Michael is making his own motorcycle with all the spare parts, he goes out to the field to try it. Frenchy appears and watches him. Listen very carefully after Michael falls the first time. You can hear him say 'bol**cks'. They must have realised this and tried to dub it out, but you can still hear it. It also shows Maxwell Caulfield's Scottish roots - it's a fairly British swear word, not widely used in the US.Padzter
Corrected entry: What was the point of making Michael a T-Bird on the last day of school? If they're "T-Bird chicks, at least till grad," then the next day Stephanie would have been free to date non T-Birds anyway.
Corrected entry: It's bothersome that no-one is concerned about who will play the piano for the talent contest since Michael went careening over the edge on his motorcycle. In fact, since no one but Frenchy knew it was Michael in disguise as the "cool rider", it makes it even more exasperating. And, when Stephanie did her "duet" with the dead Michael did she fill in for his words? Because, you know he wasn't really there.
Corrected entry: In the bowling scene just after Paulette and Johnny's part in the song ("Hey Paulette, take a look over here..." etc.), he picks her up in a fireman's lift. In every other shot her pants are gold but as they run down the bowling lane towards the camera, Paulette's pants are white.
Corrected entry: When the girls are rehersing for the talent show, Michael plays the piano for them, but you can hear other instruments,(like bass,etc)and there's no sign of a band.
Corrected entry: At the beginning you see the coach scouting basketballers when track is going on. That same day the coach is getting the T-Birds ready for football. It's like the school has all three major sports going on at the same time.
Principal Mcgee: If you play an instrument, remember, it is better to play with a group then with yourself.
