Mermaids

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film when Charlotte and her mother are having the row, Charlotte receives a huge slap. Play the slap in slow motion, and you can see that the mother misses Charlotte's face.

Factual error: Cher complains that Astroturf is going to ruin baseball. Mermaids is set in 1963 when Astroturf was still being developed under the name Chemigrass. It wasn't christened Astroturf until it made its world debut on the floor of the Houston Astrodome in 1966.
