Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Alicia Silverstone did not have to audition for her role.
  • The films that Christian watches on video with Cher - Some Like It Hot and Spartacus provide clues to his sexual orientation. The first movie deals with cross-dressing men. The second includes the famous scene where a Roman master (Laurence Olivier) tries to seduce his male servant (Tony Curtis).
  • Alicia Silverstone did not know how to correctly pronounce "Haitians" in the classroom scene. Amy Heckerling told the crew not to correct her because she liked it so much and wanted it to be in the film.
  • Plot, Characters, Themes and Values are all based on Jane Austen's novel Emma. Amy Heckerling was asked by Paramount to write a film for teenagers, and she instantly remembered the novel she read as a teenager.
  • Writers sat in classes in Beverly Hills High to get the flavor of the students.
  • Paul Rudd auditioned for the roles of Murray, Christian and Elton.
  • During the game of "Suck and Blow" the cast was unable to sustain the breath to make a real credit card pass from mouth to mouth; a prop card made of cardboard was substituted that still did not work. Holes were drilled into it to make it easier, and when this failed also, the whole cast's lips were heavily coated in chapstick to force the card to stick.
  • Although Paul Rudd's character, Josh, is in college and is older than the other characters who are still in high school, Stacey Dash, who plays the best friend Dionne, is actually 3 years older than Paul Rudd.
