Corrected entry: The song they play on the record player at the end of the movie, "I had the time of my life" has a drum machine, synthesizer, and a distorted guitar with feedback in it. These are musical innovations that did not yet exist in 1963.
Corrected entry: When Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey are coming back from dancing at another hotel she's changing clothes in the back seat. Patrick Swayze is driving his 1957 Chevy. The car's got an automatic transmission, but they're driving down the road with the shift lever in the park position. (00:49:30)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Baby arrives at the staff quarters with Jonny's cousin, they are both carrying watermelons when Jonny questions why she is here the camera shot is of her and she says " I carried a watermelon" the next shot is of Jonny and she is mouthing the same words to him, camera shot back to Baby and she is verbally kicking herself, mouthing the same words.
Corrected entry: During the Houseman family's first dinner, Baby's father tells the owner of the hotel that Baby is going to change the world. The owner then asks Lisa what she's going to do and Baby says decorate. He responds by saying "she already does," but his lips don't move. (00:08:35)
Corrected entry: In the scene where they are dancing on the log, as the camera zooms in and out you notice that sometimes Baby has shoes on and sometimes she doesn't.
Corrected entry: At the last and famous dance-scene, after Johnny and Baby have started dancing, you can hear that the people in the crowd are clapping to the music. But when the camera shows the crowd, nobody's clapping.
Corrected entry: The time continuity of the movie doesn't makes sense. Baby's family comes to Kellerman's for 3 weeks - the 'season'. It couldn't have started prior to their arrival because the waiters get their orientation from Max and when Johnny and his sidekicks arrive, it is clear they have not been there earlier. However, Penny gets knocked up by Robbie the Creep and she has to be at least 2-3 months pregnant - back in '63 women didn't have pregnancy tests readily available and she would have had to wait for a doctor's office to do the old 'rabbit' test. So, how did Penny and Robbie hook up, and what kind of place is Kellerman's that is only 3 weeks long?
Corrected entry: In the scene when Dr. Houseman tells the family they are going to leave early, his glass of juice is half empty. In the next shot it's filled to the brim.
Corrected entry: In the last dance scene (I've had the time of my life) everyone gets up to join in with the dancing its funny how all the many rows of chairs disappear so quickly. There would be no way they could move them all out of the way to a song that lasts 3 minutes.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Johnny breaks the car window, it's raining like crazy but the sun is shining brightly. It's seemed incongruous since I first saw the film in the 80s.
Corrected entry: In the dance class scene with Penny teaching a large group of adults, the camera starts by panning through the feet. Then it shows a view of the entire group. The front row is different in each shot (i.e. the person with red hi-heels is absent and the man with black shoes and black stockings is in a different place). (00:04:40)
Corrected entry: After Baby sees Penny crying in the kitchen she runs to get Billy, who is playing with something black in his hands, he places it down behind him but in later shots the item is gone.
Corrected entry: When Lisa first gets out of the car as they arrive at Kellermans, she is wearing a bow in her hair but in a later shot from the behind, there is no bow. (00:03:10)
Corrected entry: When Johnny and Baby have the conversation about 'Have you had many women', Johnny gets out of bed totally naked. However, when Baby rolls over you can see that she is wearing underwear. This isn't very probable if they have just had sex. (01:05:05)
Corrected entry: When Lisa goes to Robby's room, there is a towel on the door handle, yet when she closes the door the towel is gone.
Corrected entry: When Baby helps out at the magic show, the scene shows her facing one way then switches to her POV - which is completely opposite to what she should be seeing.
Corrected entry: In the last dance scene where the camera zooms out to the dancers dancing, you can see that one of the male dancers elbows his female partner in the side, causing her to double up.
Corrected entry: At the end of season show when Johnny has the record put on to dance. The guy puts the record and goes to place the needle on the record but then you can see him move the arm back off it.
