Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Sally is about to audition, another little girl goes before her. When the little girl finishes, there is a shot of her face with her hands on her head. In the shot from behind, we see her put her hands down, but when we see the shot from the front, she is putting her hands down again.

Continuity mistake: When Dickie is helping Sam get Barbie to go out with him they sing a song on stilts. We see the stereo that is supposedly playing the music and it is to the right of Dickie. When Dickie falls down on the stilts he falls to the left and the music stops like he had hit it. It was on the other side the whole time.

Question: When Dickie runs into Leif Garrett at the newsstand, why do they first act like they haven't seen each other in months, and then Leif asks if they're still on for poker on Tuesday? How would they have a poker night set up if they haven't seen each other?

Answer: Maybe Leif called Dickie, or vice-versa, without actually SEEING each other. Maybe it's not a weekly thing, maybe Leif is new to their poker group.
