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.

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.

Marcie: AHH! She is gonna die! This is so much better than what we did last year.
Courtney: I wish I had friends that would do this for me.
Julie: Yeah, right! You'd have us killed.
Courtney: Brutally maimed, my dear.

Marcie: Trends change. People change. It's all about details. Pay attention to details. Look at my nails. In junior high, I wore only pink. Now it makes me puke. So I change. See? It's called Demented. Seriously, the color's called Demented.
Courtney: Mine? Decayed. Like Julie. Our friendship with her is decayed. Rot. Julie is over. Done, null and void. In two weeks, no-one will know her including you. From now on, you don't know her. Never knew her. She's like Fern Mayo. A bad dream. Get it?

Dane: Don't go.
Courtney: Don't come.

More quotes from Jawbreaker


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?

Chosen 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"?

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

Question: The whole point of the trick is to persuade the police that Liz was murdered after having sex with a random stranger. The police decide to accept this suggestion. Why do they accept this, when they know that a woman pretending to be Liz's mother called the school to say Liz wouldn't come in - ie. the police know that a woman must have been involved, yet they decide it was just a man who did it?
