Clueless is one of those films we will love, no matter what point we are at in our lives.

Yes, it’s cliché and corny, but you know what? It’s everyone’s guilty pleasure and it’s ingeniously fashionable! Plus, it introduced us to characters and actors we will forever love.

But no matter how much of a dedicated Clueless fan we claim to be, we’re all probably guilty of missing this mistake in the film:

Cher has TWO last names…

Yes, we know that she doesn’t actually have two last names. She’s Cher Horowitz, forever.

But that’s not how it always was… because in an early draft of the script Cher’s last name was actually Hamilton.

Don’t believe us? There’s proof!

You should all remember the scene where our beloved Cher is in her Dad’s office, talking about her report card.

Well, if you take a closer look at it you’ll see it is addressed to ‘Cher Hamilton’, and her Dad, Melvin, later tosses a letter aside addressed to 'Melvin Hamilton’.

How did no one notice this in the production process?! Perhaps it was a little too late to change the props…
