19 Tiny Details You Probably Missed In These Iconic Teen Movies –
1.In Clueless, after Tai bumps her head, Elton asks if she can dance and sing the lyric “rollin’ with the homies.” This lyric is incorrect. It’s actually “rollin’ with MY homies,” from Coolio’s hit single.
2.In A Cinderella Story, Brianna and Gabriella are always seen wearing pink and green, much like the evil stepsisters from the 1950 Cinderella.
3.In Easy A, the foreign film Olive goes to see is the German language version of The Scarlet Letter, which is the book the movie is based off of.
5.In Mean Girls, Gretchen tells Cady that she’s not allowed to wear hoop earrings because they’re “Regina’s thing.” Towards the end of the movie, we see Cady wearing hoop earrings when she takes over the plastics, thus solidifying her as the new Regina.
6.Also in Mean Girls, at the end, when The Plastics fully disbanded, Gretchen was finally able to wear her hoop earrings.
7.In The Breakfast Club, the license plate of the car Brian (the brain) gets out of reads EMC2 (E=MC^2). The license plate of the car Andrew (the jock) gets out of reads OHIOST (Ohio State).
8.In Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, we see a poster that says, “Go Shermer,” which is the high school in The Breakfast Club, proving that both of these movies take place at the same school.
