Trivia: Amanda Bynes’ character, Penny, is seen constantly eating lollipops. Her father, who is a dentist, became very worried for Amanda’s dental health, as it was estimated she ate about 40 lollipops a day. Amanda told him that she wasn’t really eating all of them, when in reality she ate them all.
Goofs: Continuity: During “I Know Where I’ve Been”, when Motormouth Maybelle sings “To just sit still would be a sin”, she sheds a tear. The camera pans out to a crowd scene and comes back and the tear is gone.
“Tracy Turnblad, an overweight teenager with all the right moves, is obsessed with the Corny Collins Show. Every day after school, she and her best friend Penny run home to watch the show and drool over the hot Link Larkin, much to Tracy’s mother Edna’s dismay. After one of the stars of the show leaves, Corny Collins holds auditions to see who will be the next person on the Corny Collins show. With all of the help of her friend Seaweed, Tracy makes it on the show, angering the evil dance queen Amber Von Tussle and her mother Velma. Tracy then decides that it’s not fair that the black kids can only dance on the Corny Collins Show once a month, and with the help of Seaweed, Link, Penny, Motormouth Maybelle, her father and Edna, she’s going to integrate the show…..without denting her ‘do!
