Now and Then

Deliberate mistake: The lake that the girls splash about in is very shallow, as they easily stand and play in it. Roberta does a head-first dive from a high tree, into it. There's no chance she wouldn't have hurt herself. (00:32:35)

Deliberate mistake: When Roberta copies the article about her mothers death, the machine obviously copies the page too fast. It copies it immediately, yet in the 1970's copy printers were incredibly slow.

Continuity mistake: At the time they were all little kids, the veteran from the war (Brendan Fraser) gave them cigarettes. When the girls were leaving, Teeny took one last puff and stopped it out, in the next shot she throws down the cigarette again and steps on it. (00:45:20)

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.
