Riding in Cars with Boys

Factual error: The movie takes place in Connecticut from 1961-1986. All the cars in the movie have license plates on their front bumpers, but Connecticut didn't require front plates until just a few years ago (late 90s-early 00s).

Continuity mistake: In the scene on the sidewalk where Bev is pretending Faye is her mom (and she's practicing to tell her mom that she's pregnant) the same people walk by several times. I don't think there was a single shot-reverse-shot sequence that had the right people walking by at the right time. You saw the same couple, for example, walk by at least four different times.

Fay: My daughter's a tramp! My daughter's a tramp! You're 15 years old, how could you do this to me? Why don't you just take my gun. Take my gun and shoot me in the head with it tramp! I wish that you were never born! How was that?
