Legally Blonde

Factual error: In the final graduation scene, the faculty members on the stage are all wearing mortarboard caps. In fact, they should be wearing the traditional "doctors" graduation caps which resemble Scottish tam-o-shanters.

New this month Suggested correction: Faculty should be wearing the cap and gown of the institution they graduated from, which may or may not be Harvard. I do not teach at the university I obtained my doctorate from, but at graduation I wear the robe and hat from where I earned my PhD, not the one of where I teach as I earned no degree there. That is how it works in the USA. The graduates will all have the same robes and hats, but not the faculty. Faculty hats will depend on where they graduated from. Mine is a standard mortarboard and my husband's is a tam as we went to different schools.

Audio problem: In the scene after Reese Witherspoon and Luke Wilson are returning from questioning the ex-wife of the murder victim at a spa, they are driving up in Luke's car. You can clearly see, as they get closer to the camera, that what you hear Luke saying isn't what his lips are saying. It was a very obvious dub over...and a very bad one.

Elle: And last week I saw Cameron Diaz at Fred Segal, and I talked her out of buying this truly heinous angora sweater. Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed.

Trivia: Although many people may not catch it, the "Harvard" in which the movie is set is actually the University of Southern California campus. If you look very closely in the background, the University's trademark buildings are visible.
