Girl, Interrupted

Factual error: When Suzanna and Lisa are at Daisy's house, Daisy lays out money for Lisa so that she can get pancakes, and the bill she laid down is one of the NEW bills. This movie is set in the 60s so of course they wouldn't have the new bills, considering they didn't start making them until 1998.

Continuity mistake: When Susanna gets into the cab to go to the mental hospital, she pushes the suitcase over and clearly sits on the left side of the cab (directly behind the driver), but in the following shots she is sitting on the right side, and looks out the right side passenger window.

Factual error: The movie is set in 1967-1968 (69?). The Doors song, "Roadhouse Blues" was not released until 1970, on the album "Morrison Hotel". The song, however, plays at the party the two girls (Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie) go to, when they "escape" from the hospital.

Question: Why did Polly get a panic attack in the middle of the night?

Chosen answer: If you listen to her yelling when they try to subdue her, she yells out "I'm ugly". This is most likely stemming from earlier when Angelina's character makes a comment about Polly never finding love because of the way she looks.

New this week Answer: Polly freaked out because she had seen Suazanna kissing her boyfriend earlier that day. Polly realised that is something she will never have.

Question: Why was Daisy keeping the old chicken dinners under her bed?

Chosen answer: It is very common for bulemics, as Daisy was, to be embarrassed by the food they eat. It's only natural for her to want to hide her eating habits. She states that when she gets 5, she has to throw them away. You imagine the smell of 5 rotting chicken carcasses under your bed after 5 days. Her father seemed to be a very powerful man so therefore she has some special treatment and is allowed to indulge a little. As long as she's eating, they'll let her have the chicken.
