Fast Times at Ridgemont High

Factual error: If we are to assume the film is in chronological order over the course of a single school year, then why does the football scene come after Christmas has occurred? High school football season ends well before the holiday season.

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Hand shows up at Jeff's house to study history, the bong in Jeff's bedroom alternates between full of smoke and empty.

Other mistake: When Spicoli supposedly takes a bong hit, you can see that he only inhales the air from the chamber - he takes his mouth away before the smoke gets to the top of the bong.

Question: When the movie first came out, there was a whole different song playing near the end when Mark and Stacy see each other in the mall. In more recent years, "So In Love" is the song playing whenever this scene is shown. Why did the music change over the years? (I believe the song is different now in the swimming pool scene when Mike and Mark go into the pool from what I remember too). Anyone agree with this or have an explanation?

Chosen answer: From what I can gather, "So Much in Love" by Timothy B. Schmit was in the original release of the film, but due to licensing rights issues, home video and cable TV versions of the film replaced this and two or three other tracks. For the 1999 DVD release, the rights seem to have been renewed and the soundtrack matches the original theatrical release.

Question: How does Stacy give Guy 5 cent change if his total is $1.10? Did he have a 15 cent piece?

Chosen answer: Three quarters and four dimes would make it correct.
