Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • At the hotel dinner for the kids, after their trip to the Holocaust museum, all of the Holocaust survivor characters are played by actual Holocaust survivors.
  • The Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles is featured in the film. Gruwell takes the students on a field trip to the museum. An exterior view of the museum is shown, and there are scenes inside the museum, showing simulated entrances to gas chambers in death camps.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When "Mrs G." tells the students that they won't be with her in their junior year (the first time) she is writing on the board. The writing originally is "write a first person na".......and then it goes from "...narrative" to "...na" and then just "...first person".
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): When Gruwell's husband, Scott, is watching football on TV while lying on his bed, the Falcons are playing. However, the Falcons didn't have those uniforms or Michael Vick, the star player of the Falcons, in the early '90s.
