A scene was filmed where Tracey finds cockroaches in her hair. It was based on an urban legend about a girl whose brain is eaten by cockroaches that were living in her beehive hairdo. While it never made it into the final cut, it explains all the references to roaches in the latter part of the film. See more »
When Seaweed visits Penny after the riot at Tilted Acres, he only cuts one bar with the bolt cutters but breaks out 2 bars. Also, when he dropped the bars behind him, the sound is of them hitting immediately behind him, not on the ground below, as he was breaking in on the 2nd floor. See more »
This has to be without a doubt my favourite movie. There are probably better but none that I have enjoyed as much. Its perfectly cast and well written. Ricki Lake, Divine, Vitamin C and of course Debbie Harry all shine. It deals with such a sensitive issue thats still relevant today (prejudice) in an easily digestable and engaging way. I love the dances and the whole feel of this movie. Its one you love or hate and I definatly love it! 10/10
