Corrected entry: When the girls drag Roberta out of the water when she fakes her death, the girls' hair is stringy. When you first come out of the water, your hair sticks to your neck and gets stringy after you move around a lot. They weren't out of the water long enough for their hair to get stringy. (00:34:45)
Corrected entry: It's the summer of 1970 and the girls are riding their bikes and singing "Knock Three Times" which was not released until November, 1970.
Corrected entry: During the swimming scene, how could any of the girls see Scott's gonads? Every time the camera showed him as the girls were looking, his back area would be facing them. (For example, when Sam and Roberta looked, he was pushing his brothers in the water with his butt facing the girls. When Chrissy looked, she said, 'It doesn't look very big.' She would have to have awfully good eyesight to judge the size of it, considering she only saw him from a distance as he was doing a backflip, making it impossible to get a glimpse of his equipment, let alone judge the size.
Corrected entry: The man in the tractor was putting in Dear Johnny's new headstone at the end. After the girls left and Samantha ran back in to say hi to Crazy Pete, Pete was at Dear Johnny's grave leaving flowers. But how could this be? If the man in the tractor was putting in a new headstone for Dear Johnny, how could he have another one at the other side of the cemetery?
Corrected entry: When Roberta jumps off the tree branch into the shallow lake, she is seen jumping in front of the other girls, but then her body floats up far behind the girls. Since she was faking her death, how could she have swum past the girls so fast without them noticing, since the water is shallow?
Corrected entry: When all four girls come back from their ride to the library, they say goodbye to Teeny, who rides her bike to the right. But when Roberta flashed her flashlight to her for the secret meeting, Teeny lived across the street from her. So why did Teeny go home in a different direction, than Roberta?
Corrected entry: In the last graveyard scene, Sam picks some bright yellow flowers for Dear Johnny's grave. When she puts them on the grave, they are thin and purple weeds.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the four young girls are riding their bikes and singing and they are all riding towards the camera, you can see the many tire marks on the dusty ground where they have done that shot a few times before.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, the four friends are visiting in the tree house remembering their childhood. The new mom has her baby with her in the tree house. Just after that, when they go outside to play "Red Rover" there is no baby in sight. What a bad mom. I guess she probably left the baby alone in the tree house.
Corrected entry: This is from the library scene when they're looking through newspaper archives for Dear Johnny info, and Roberta falls upon the article from her mother's death. Dear Johnny's tombstone read that he died in 1945, and Roberta's mother died around 1962 (the movie is set in 1970, and it mentioned that 12-yr-old Roberta was four at the time of her mother's death). Why was she looking in newspapers that were printed nearly 20 years after Dear Johnny's death?
Corrected entry: At one point the mother is seen walking with short hair. Then not much later in the movie, her hair is long again.
Teeny: Chrissy, truth or dare?
Teeny: Have you ever been french kissed?
Chrissy: Are you kidding? I don't want to get pregnant!
Roberta: You can't get pregnant from french-kissing!
Chrissy: I know that, beetle-brain, but it's common knowledge that if you tongue-kiss a boy, he automatically thinks you'll do the deed with him. They can't help it. They're driven. It's the male curse.
