Now and Then

Continuity mistake: In the big game of Red Rover in shots of the four girls discussing who to pick, they are standing in complete sunshine with no shade around them. Then when Bobby is running over to them, the whole area of field around the four girls is now in shade. It's then completely sunny again when the girls start cheering because they beat Bobby.

Visible crew/equipment: In the big game of Red Rover at the beginning of the film, as Bobby runs over to the four girls, in one shot all of the four girls tape markers on the grass are extremely noticeable. Sam is standing on a red one, Chrissy on a blue one, Roberta on a green one and Teeny on a yellow one. They're obviously gone in all the following shots. (00:01:35)

Continuity mistake: Chrissy applies lipstick when singing in front of the mirror, but in following scenes it is apparent that she's not wearing any. (00:04:40)

Visible crew/equipment: When Sam pulls up outside Chrissy's house, watch as she opens her door, and you can see silver dolly tracks and a thick black wire reflected in the door. (00:05:25)

Visible crew/equipment: Chrissy sees the People magazine with Teeny's pic on the cover and asks Roberta why people get so excited over Teeny. When Roberta answers straightforwardly, in the next shot the shadow of the boom mic can be seen moving over the fridge, at the top of the screen. (00:05:40)

Visible crew/equipment: When Teeny arrives at Chrissy's, at the beginning of the film, a boom mic is reflected in the window of the limo door she gets out of. (00:06:40)

Continuity mistake: When Chrissy is standing holding the plate of biscuits, her thumb differs from resting on the plate to erect in the air from shot to shot. (00:06:55)

Continuity mistake: When Teeny arrives in her limo, she hugs Chrissy then Sam. As she hugs, she holds a pair of sunglasses in her hand which alternate from having the arms folded in/out between shots. (00:06:55)

Continuity mistake: When Chrissy, Teeny and Sam are standing near the barbecue and table of food talking, they turn to walk over to the foldout chairs and swings. As they turn around you can see by the tree are two flowery foldout chairs next to each other. But in the next shot when they walk over there, there's now a small flowery footstool in between the two chairs. (00:08:30)

Continuity mistake: When Chrissy, Sam and Teeny stand by the barbeque talking, between shots the position of the outdoor couch changes. (00:08:30)

Hamster Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Chrissy, Sam and Teeny are by barbeque, Roberta is up, sitting on the top floor of the treehouse. In the very next shot as they walk over to the swings, Roberta is now descending the bottom ladder down from the treehouse. (00:08:30)

Audio problem: When Teeny and Sam are on the swings, talking with Chrissy and Roberta, a few lines of Teeny and Sam's dialouge is either out of sync or completely dubbed with/over their lip movements. Also, in one shot Teeny is heard laughing, yet her mouth is closed tight. (00:08:45 - 00:10:15)

Hamster Premium member

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, when the old Teeny and Samantha are swinging on the swings, they're rocking next to each other. The next scene, one is in the front, the other's in the back, then they're next to each other again. (00:09:00)

Visible crew/equipment: When the camera pans along Sam's room, the black reflection of the passing camera is reflected in the crystal ball on her desk. (00:10:50)

Hamster Premium member

Revealing mistake: The red light from the camera is clearly reflected in the silver part of Sam's torch, as she reads her book in bed. (00:11:45)

Factual error: Roberta has a Meet The Brady Bunch record on her desk. The release date for this record was 1972, yet this film is set in the summer of 1970. (00:12:55)

Continuity mistake: In one behind shot, Scott throws a Jell-O bomb. Instantly in the following shot, he aquires a new Jell-O bomb. (00:15:55)

Hamster Premium member

Continuity mistake: When the Wormers attack the girls with Jell-O-bombs, one bomb hits Chrissy near the waist, leaving green Jell-O all over her top and shorts. In the next quick shot, you can see the stain has vanished. (00:15:55)

Hamster Premium member

Continuity mistake: After the Jell-O fight, Roberta chases Scott and the other Wormers. Watch their shadows. Between shots they go from being projected to their right, then when it cuts, the shadows project to their left. (00:16:05)

Hamster Premium member

Revealing mistake: After the Wormers attack the girls with Jell-O-bombs, Roberta runs after them, and then dives to the floor. Small flesh-coloured kneepads are visible on her knees. (00:16:10)
