Hairspray

Hairspray (1988)

6 mistakes

Audio problem: When Corny introduces himself at the auto show, the audio is not in sync with his lips.

Add time

Factual error: Although the film is set in 1962, it uses the song "You Don't Own Me" which wasn't released until 1963 (and didn't become a big hit until 1964).

Add time

Continuity mistake: During the "Limbo Rock" segment, the scene changes from shots of the council members dancing at Tilted Acres to Penny and Tracey's parents watching it on TV. The queue of the council members waiting in line to go under the pole changes between shots.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Amber and Link first drive up to Amber's home, there are two young twin boys walking past the car. It then cuts to a close up and we see the same twins walk past again.

Add time

Revealing mistake: Penny is held captive in her bedroom, the window covered by bars. Seaweed shows up to 'rescue' her, brandishing large wire cutters and clips the bar on her left, but you can see the bar on her right is pre-cut as he bends both, just before she climbs out the window.

Continuity mistake: During the "Shake A Tail Feather" dance, the non-council members in the background are dancing along in close-up shots, but just watching in the long shots.
