Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie when Romy reunites with Heather Moony, Heather tells Romy that she invented the cigarette which she is smoking and takes a puff to show how fast it burns down, and the cigarette burns to the butt. But in the next scene her cigarette is still to its half-way point. (00:07:25)
Continuity mistake: In the reunion scene Kristy Masters, the A group leader, is making the speech of where everyone has been for the last ten years. When they show Heather Moony, if you look closely at her dress it appears to be that she spilled her drink on her dress already, later after Kristy talks about the football player Heather drools on her dress and the earlier spot where she spilled has disappeared. (01:11:05)
Factual error: In the prom scene in which Romy and Michelle wear Madonna costumes, Romy is wearing her hair up in a distinctive ponytail assumingly inspired by the famous ponytail Madonna sported in her Blond Ambition World Tour. However, this scene is supposed to be taking place in around 1987 and Madonna did not wear that ponytail until 1990.
Trivia: In Michele's dream, when it is at the awards part, and Michele and Romy are going up to the state to get their medals, watch for when there is a long shot of the scene. Just above the awards stage, there are a carrot and banana, made out of balloons and obviously intended to be part of the decorations; exact replicas of the magnets Kristy stuck on Michele's back earlier. Maybe it's supposed to be a metaphor for revisiting the past - something that you normally do at a reunion.
Michele: Let's fold scarves.
Romy: I've been killing myself for eight days and I gained a pound.
Michele: That's impossible. Did you deduct sixteen pounds for your shoes?
Michele: I'm the Mary, and you're the Rhoda.
Romy: YOU'RE the Rhoda, you're the Jewish one.
Question: In one of the flashbacks, after Kristy put the magnets on Michele's back, why did she eat Romy's hamburger? This just struck me as odd since the "popular girls" in movies are usually portrayed as dieting often, and they usually don't eat the junk food that the non-popular characters eat.
Question: When Romy goes to what I'm assuming is a dating agency, the lady she speaks to says to her something along the lines of "try VH1", what exactly does this mean?
