Continuity mistake: At Rhonda's house, when Sam says, "You sure do have a knack for taking something simple and making it beautiful," the red bowl is beside her. After Rhonda shows Sam the white gown, the camera pans back toward the table top and the lace mask suddenly and deliberately appears and is leaning against the bowl.

Continuity mistake: When Austin is typing to Sam from his bedroom, the very first book on the shelf in the background keeps changing, over and over again. This occurs near the start, when they are still unknown to each other, and also when he tries to write to her after the pep rally incident.

Visible crew/equipment: When Rhonda's in the kitchen with Bobby, and she tells him that it's enough with all the salmon dishes, as the camera zooms in we can see the crew member (wearing a pouch at his hip) with his arm up, at the left of the screen, as he's presumably holding up the boom pole and mic.

More quotes from A Cinderella Story

Trivia: The directors had Sam wear a lot of blue throughout the movie to standout and show she stood apart from everyone else. They tried to get all the other actors and extras to wear as little blue as possible. If you pay attention, Sam is often wearing blue and all the teenagers in the background wear jeans a lot less than you would probably see at a high school.

More trivia for A Cinderella Story

Question: I've noticed in quite a few movies set in American high schools there is a certain student who talks on the PA system, acting as a sort of news reporter/DJ type thing. There is one in this film and another film that does it is 'She's All That'. My question is does this really happen in American schools? If so, why? What's the purpose of the role? And doesn't that student ever get to class? Thanks in advance.

Answer: Yes, this happens in most schools. The reason is that students are more likely to pay attention to announcements that are not made by a boring school employee. In many American schools, we have a phenomenon known as "home room". This is a short period usually first thing in the morning that is non-instructional when announcements are made, forms are filled out, and administrivial functions that don't have anything to do with any one class. At schools that don't have this, they have a thing called "study hall" or "independent study" which is a period where you sit in a classroom and work on your assignments, special functions for the school admin. like you are talking about are frequently done at these periods by students who are "working in the office" rather than studying. Then, there are schools that actually have classes in journalism, broadcasting, etc. where this activity would be part of the schoolwork.
