Did You Know?


The building that "portrays" Grove High School in the film is located at 2601 Lyon Street at Green, in San Francisco, California.


Helen Thermopolis: Time for school! Stop daydreaming, you'll be late for school.


The cucumber slices that Paolo puts over Mia's eyes change from having part of their skin peeled off to having a continuous peel around their circumferences. As her make-over occurs within a relatively short period of time, there seems to be no reason for the slices to be changed.

Crazy Credits

A couple of minutes into the end credits we see a shot of Mia on the soccer field sneaking up to the ball and trying to kick it. She misses the ball and falls down.

Alternate Versions

The DVD contains 8 deleted scene which include:

  • Mia asking Queen Clarice what was her nickname in highschool.
  • Some shots of a puppet Mia being ordered about by Clarice which were inserted as Mia was late for her princess lesson.
  • Mia's history teacher visiting Mia's house and getting paint on his jacket. As he takes it off, Mia catches him shirtless.
  • Michael chatting with Mia on the school roof and removing an eyelash from her face.
  • Michael and Mia sharing a pizza with M&M's on it.
  • A scene that was supposed to show what the drunk man supposedly did at the last banquet-using a harp to slice eggs.
  • Josh telling Mia how everyone at the beach party was waiting for him to do something so they could mimic him. Josh starts inventing a banana dance in which everyone copies and starts doing.
  • Lana being exposed to the press for claiming she was Mia's best friend when she wasn't.
