I Know What You Did Last Summer

New this month Other mistake: When Ben gets run over, he has numerous bloody scars on his face, but near the end he only has one scar, going across the top of his right head to the bottom of his left face, no way he would only have one scar after a collision like that.

New this month Other mistake: David Egan's obituary mentions that he was 28 when he died. When they go to see David's sister Missy, she says that he was Class of '92 at the high school. So that would make him 23 when he graduated, meaning he was born in 1969 instead of 1974. (00:45:00)

New this month Continuity mistake: When Ben gets run over his body is shown hitting the windshield but when they find his body it's shown that his face took all the damage.

New this month Plot hole: David Egan's obituary states he was in his twenties when he died, much younger than Ben Willis, the actual hit-and-run victim. This should have clued in that David was not the person they ran over.

Continuity mistake: After Barry has jumped into the water reclaim the crown, he comes out of the water with a perfectly clean shirt but in the next shot the blood is back on his shirt as expected. (00:22:50)

Continuity mistake: Max lies dead in Julie's car covered in crabs. He was hooked very deep under his chin, yet when we see him, the wound is gone. (00:59:15)

Visible crew/equipment: When Helen is being chased by Ben, she runs to "Shivers" and up to the glass door, screaming "Elsa!" In this shot you can see a crewmember reflected in the glass door.

Factual error: David Egan's obituary says he died on 'Wednesday July 5th 1997'. In 1997, July 5th was a Saturday. (00:45:30)

Factual error: When Helen and Julie are researching David Egan on her computer, the browser shows the URL as '//http:cnty457.lib.org'. It should of course be 'http://cnty457.lib.org'. (00:45:30)

Visible crew/equipment: When Julie comes home at her mothers house, she looks at her diplomas on the wall. When her mother comes in the room, you can see a reflection of a boom mike in the frame behind Julie. (00:27:10)

Deliberate mistake: The film supposedly took place in the Coastal Carolina region. This is a geographically flat area, called a coastal plain. In the beginning of the film, the kids were driving along ocean cliffs, which are not present in the Carolinas. Obviously, this was filmed in California. (00:01:15)

Revealing mistake: Portion of the film were shot at an old farm house. The trees were bare, without leaves. Obviously filmed in the winter.

Factual error: In the scene where all four people get together after Jennifer Love Hewitt finds a body in her truck, Barry hits Ray with his right hand, which is in a cast. This would cause him a lot of pain, but despite using his injured arm more than once there's no sign of any discomfort.

Revealing mistake: When the killer is dragging the girl's body with the meat hook, you can easily see that it is a doll. (01:18:45)

Factual error: Near the end, Julie James is crouching down by the front tip of the boat with a flare gun in her hand. Now, she is crouching so she is looking straight at the rest of the boat, instead of looking over the front of the boat. Then Ben Willis starts the boat with a big push and she falls back against the tip of the boat and the gun flies out of her hands. Now when you do that with a car, you normally fly backwards, but since Julie is turned around the other way, she should fall onto the piece of boat in front of her. (01:26:45)

Deliberate mistake: Another indication that this was filmed on the west coast is that in the opening shot you can see the sun. If this was North Carolina at sunset then the sun would not be visible across the ocean. (00:01:20)

Factual error: When JLH visits Missy at her home Missy says she went to Southport High, but in the July 4th celebrations the marching band has a banner which reads East Brunswick High School. A bit strange that a "small fishing village" would have two high schools for the simple fact that well the town probably couldn't afford it and it's pointless to have two when the village is so small. Factually, Southport does indeed have just one high school - South Brunswick High. See http://schooltree.org/NC-BRUNSWICK.html.

Revealing mistake: When Julie is in the room filled with ice, some of it jiggles when she moves it, probably a prop made of jelly.

Continuity mistake: When Helen finds the word 'SOON' written on her mirror she smashes it. There are two shots of the mirror being broken - in the first the center of the cracks is between the O's and in the second it is in the middle of the first O. (00:57:50)

Continuity mistake: When Julie comes home and finds the letter, her lips are pale and she is not wearing lipstick. When the shot shifts focus from the letter to her face again, however, she is wearing purplish lipstick.
