Other mistake: When Rocky is in the funhouse looking at himself, he appears to look relatively "normal". But it's very obvious that it's got nothing to do with the mirror, and more to do with the removal of a lot of makeup. For example, Rocky usually has almost no nose, but in the mirror he has Eric Stoltz's very well developed nose.

Directed by: Peter Bogdanovich
Starring: Laura Dern, Sam Elliott, Eric Stoltz, Cher, Estelle Getty
Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie a big man is placing flowers at Rocky's grave. From the back of the tombstone he is laying the flowers on their sides. In the next shot, from the front of the stone, they are standing up, leaning against the stone.
Rocky Dennis: What's his problem, Ma?
Rusty Dennis: Nothing. He's just another asshole. You let that negative dreck in and it'll put ya away. You can be a chickenshit and die or be a mensch and keep makin' yourself well.
Trivia: Director Peter Bogdanovich's first choice for the part of Rocky Dennis was Anthony Michael Hall. Hall turned down the part because he didn't like the idea of hiding his face during the whole film with make-up. Eric Stoltz was then cast instead.
Suggested correction: I don't know if you are right or wrong, but I thought Eric was given the role because he sang "Rock-y" during his audition. [I'm not really asserting that you are wrong; I had to pick that option in order to be able to reply here.].
Question: When Rocky kisses Dianne, why is it a New Years dance if they are at summer camp?
Answer: It appears to be a party at camp. Lots of camps have special themed parties especially before the camp is over.
