Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): When Rodney Bingenheimer interviews Joan Jett on his KROQ radio show in early Eighties, he claims that he used to play a lot of Runways music at his old Sunset Strip club, Rodney's English disco - although his club closed half a year before band even got together, let alone had landed a recording contract. However, it is possible that the character was mistaken or lying to Joan.
  • The real Cherie Currie claims she collapsed onto her kitchen floor and burst into tears when she learned Dakota Fanning had signed to play her in the film. Fanning is Currie's favorite actress.
  • Joan Jett's one regret about this film is that the title card at the end of the film that reveals the fate of herself, Kim Fowley and Cherie Currie does not also feature that of Sandy West (II). On the DVD commentary, Jett unofficially dedicates the film to West, who died just before the film went into production.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The Dodge Charger shown at the beginning of the movie has a license plate beginning with the number 3 (which wasn't issued until several years later).
