Other mistake: When Michelle Pfieffer hands out menus for the restaurant in the class, they all read them out loud in English. Then when she takes Raul there, he says he can't read it because it's in French.
Continuity mistake: When Angela and her friend are dancing to the music, in the next shot you can see her walking past on the bottom right hand side of the screen, wearing different clothes too. (00:18:58 - 00:19:10)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where it's Michelle Pfeiffer's first day in the classroom, the student who calls her "White Bread" when she walks in goes from one shot where she's sitting in a chair wearing headphones to three quick shots later where she's suddenly standing up dancing without headphones, and then in the next split-second shot she's sitting down again and the girl next to her is wearing the headphones, and then the headphones are back on her head when Pfeiffer walks up to her and asks about Miss Shepard. (00:08:14 - 00:08:55)
Trivia: There are articles on-line reporting the murder of "Marisela Gonzales", who was shot by her husband in San Pedro on October 11th or 12th, 2020. There are also questions if Marisela, who played "Angela" in "Dangerous Minds" (1985) is still alive. From the police reports, the correct spelling of the 28-year-old woman killed was "Marisela Gonzalez" - ending with a "z", not "s." The Marisela who played Angela was born in 1968, and is currently 52 - so, obviously, not the 28-year-old murder victim.

Louanne: What should I tell them? If they don't want to die remember to knock?
