Now and Then

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)

Continuity mistake: During the seance scene, the girls hair often changes position during shots.

Visible crew/equipment: When the Wormers are bombing the girls with Jell-O, Roberta pulls Chrissy down and says, "Chrissy. Get down." When they lie down, you can see tape markers on the grass where they are standing, Roberta on yellow and Chrissy on red.

Revealing mistake: When the Wormers are chasing the girls, who have stolen their clothes, as they run out from behind the tractor the boy holding the bucket in front of his private area moves it, revealing a really noticeable modesty patch he's wearing. (00:37:55)

Continuity mistake: When Roberta photocopies the page in the library, she takes the piece of paper from the machine and then there's no more paper sticking out. Then when it swaps to a different angle, there's paper hanging out the end of the copier. (00:40:35)

Continuity mistake: When Sam's Grandma takes a bite from her cookie, the bracelet around her wrist changes position from shot to shot, evident by the large turquoise ball which dangles from it. (01:11:10)

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: In her Grandma's attic, Sam opens a trunk. In the wideshot there is a little box opened, with nothing on the lid. It cuts to a wideshot and there are photos laying on the lid. Then moments later, Sam goes to pick up a large red scrap book. It cuts to a closeup, and she's now holding some newspaper sheets. (01:13:55)

Continuity mistake: When Teeny, Samantha, and Chrissy save Roberta from the water and they pull her onto the sand, Chrissy punches Roberta. When it shows Roberta moaning, you can clearly see that Roberta has a white towel wrapped around her waist. Then you can see that Chrissy has one too. But when they show a view of them far away they don't have towels.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning, when Demi Moore and Melanie Griffith are coming into the house of Rita Wilson, Demi Moore and Melanie Griffith are standing on one side of the room and Rita Wilson is standing with Rosie O'Donnell on the other side of the room. If the camera shows Rita Wilson and Rosie O'Donnell from behind, Rosie O'Donnell is standing a little bit behind Rita Wilson, but if the camera shows Rosie O'Donnell and Rita Wilson from the side they are standing in a line.

Continuity mistake: When Teeny puts down her paper straw wrapper it is all scrunched up in one shot, then straight and smooth in the following shot. (00:19:10)

Teeny: Chrissy, truth or dare?
Chrissy: Truth.
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.
