Stand By Me

Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, where Teddy, Chris, Gordy, and Verne are in the treehouse, Chris and Teddy are playing cards. Chris is wearing a T-shirt with a cigarette package rolled up into his sleeves. Throughout the scene, Chris's cigarette package suddenly disappears.

Correction: the reason why he has no cigarette package in his t-shirt is because he takes one out. you can see that he has a cigarette that hasn't been used yet in his mouth and his shirt is all wrinkled from where he has rolled it up. :).

Corrected entry: In the Lardass Hogan story scene, Lardass pukes up blueberries and so do the other contestants, obviously, because they are scarfing down blueberry pie. But when the whole audience starts puking, everyone is puking up blueberries. Why?

Correction: Because it is just a story, it's the boy's version of what he heard, not an actual fact.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Chris first shows Gordie the gun he took from his father, the gun is silver, but at the end of the film where Gordie is threatening Ace with it, the gun is black.

Correction: The gun is black from the beginning.

Continuity mistake: When the boys are dunking each other in the swamp Gordie starts to wade away, when he passes the camera his hair is dry but when he reaches the bank it's wet again. (01:04:56)
