Urban Cowboy

Continuity mistake: The movie is supposed to have been filmed and taken place exclusively in Pasadena, TX, and MOST of it is. The trailer park that they live in, however, is NOT in Pasadena, or anywhere near there. There are several scenes where they show someone driving into the trailer park, and you can see mountains in the background. There aren't any mountains within hundreds of miles of Pasadena.

Continuity mistake: When Bud and Sissy are driving to their new home, the camera shows their names on small license plates in the rear window of the truck. They arrive at the house, and you can see a bunch of people and streamers in the back of the truck. They were not there when the license plates were shown.

Continuity mistake: When Pam looks at the note written by Sissy for Bud, the angle of the note in relation to the radio it's under keeps changing while she looks at it and puts it back.

Continuity mistake: The first visit to the diner, Scott Glenn is in the background. In subsequent scenes he is still in prison at the rodeo.

Character mistake: When Wes is drinking the tequila with the worm in it, he makes a toast to "la vida luna" and tells Sissy it's Spanish for "the crazy life". This is untrue, the correct Spanish translation for "the crazy life" is "la vida loca". "La vida luna" literally translates as "the life moon" or better yet "the moon life", but a more accurate translation is "the night life."
