Corrected entry: During the "You Can't Stop The Beat" number at the end, when Amber goes to sit in the Hairspray Can, on the wide shot with Link and Tracey at the front, you can see the can starts to move up slightly at the back, then the shot changes to the guys starting to pull the ropes, then the can is seen stationary for a split second before starting to move up with Amber inside it.Dave Woollin
Corrected entry: Throughout the entire movie (especially during the dance with Tracy's parents and when getting dressed at Mr. Pinky's)you can see the line on where Edna's "Fat" suit is.
Corrected entry: In the Scene where you see Tracy climbing up a ladder to get ready to make her appearance, you can see she is wearing her casual clothes and not her checker dress.
Corrected entry: In the first classroom scene, the teacher asks (but does not answer), "What is the highest geographical feature on earth?" stating that Mt. Everest is not the answer. In fact, Mt. Everest is generally universally considered the answer to this question, with the usual interpretation being highest above sea level. (Not including trick answers like underwater volcanoes, which are not higher above sea level than Mt. Everest.)
Corrected entry: Throughout "Good Morning Baltimore", we can hear background singers even though Tracy is the only one singing.
Corrected entry: In the first classroom scene the teacher talks about Mt Everest. On the board is a list of the highest mountains. Everest is listed at 29,035 ft. This is today's height of Everest as measured with GPS. Between 1954 and the 1999 GPS measurement, the accepted height was 29,028 ft (/- 10 ft for snow). When Hillary and Norgay summited in 1953, the accepted height was 29,002 ft. Source: boxed mini article on the height of Everest. p.702 of The World Almanac and Book of Facts, 2007.
Corrected entry: In "Welcome to the 60's," out in front of the beauty salon, there is a park bench with an advertisement for 'The Dynamites' (who are singing). In the background of the advertisement, there are images of compact discs (CD's) which were invented in the 1980's even though the movie is set in the 1962.
Corrected entry: In the scene before "You're Timeless to Me", after Edna sprays steam at Wilbur with the iron, she sets the iron down flat, and never props it back up, which would cause a fire.
Corrected entry: When Tracey turned on the TV, it came on immediately, in 1962 TV's took at least a minute to warm up before the picture came on.
Corrected entry: Sometimes when Tracy's name is shown on the board with Amber's it is sometimes spelled "Tracey".
Corrected entry: In the song "The New Girl in Town" Amber is seen singing the song with two other girls. But as the scene goes from the shot of the girls singing to the shot of Link, Amber is also seen standing next to Link in a different costume.
