Jawbreaker

Continuity mistake: When Julie talks to Courtney at lunch, she's wearing a headband and the ends of her hair are flipped out. When she's waiting for the bus, the ends of her hair are curled under. Later on in the scene her ends are flipped out again.

Continuity mistake: At the end when it is revealed that Courtney killed Liz, we see several of the teenagers standing right in front of the stage. As Courtney walks through the crowd several of the teenagers have moved away from the stage and further back in the crowd. They couldn't have moved that fast through the rest of the crowd.

Mortug

Continuity mistake: When Courtney, Fern and Foxy are in the cafeteria and they're all drinking diet Coke, Fern has her Coke in her hand near her face when Courtney names her Vylett, but when the shot changes to Fern's face, the Coke is on the table. When the shot changes to show all three, the Coke is in Fern's hand again.

More quotes from Jawbreaker

Question: The girls try to persuade the police that Liz had sex with a strange man who then killed her. Why then didn't the police do a DNA test and forensics, which would prove that there was no semen in Liz's body, and so show the girls were lying?

Chosen answer: I believe the idea was to take the DNA from Marilyn Manson out of Courtney and put it into Liz's corpse.

Question: The song playing during the opening titles is "Volcano Girls" by Veruca Salt. The song seemed to "shape the film", but wasn't on the soundtrack. Why?

Answer: The band had recently broken up when Jawbreaker was released, so maybe that had something to do with it. Or maybe just a good old-fashioned disagreement about how much VS would be paid for using their song? I agree, the soundtrack seemed somehow empty without it.

Question: Why, since no one knows that Violette is Fern, does one of the girls come up to Violette and say, "so I hear you were the last person to see Liz Purr alive"?

Answer: Because that was deliberately spread as a rumor to make Violette even more mysterious and intriguing.
