Apparently the film's wardrobe didn't pass muster for a few Tweeters.

Pretty sure the wardrobe they are wearing on the #unauthorizedsavedbythebellstory Is currently being sold at Forever 21— Dara B (@ItsMeDaraB) September 2, 2014
Naturally, there were some arguments over how much the film's cast resembled the original show's actors.
