Now and Then

Revealing mistake: It is obvious that when Sam is in her bed reading her book with a torch, that a set light is being shone at her face and that the glow doesn't come from the torch, because she turns the torch away from her and puts it on the bed, but a soft glow of light remains on her face for some seconds.

Audio problem: When the girls are climbing up onto the roof to get in Sam's grandma's attic, Chrissy says "We could get in trouble for this," but her mouth moves to a different line. (01:12:25)

Continuity mistake: When Teeny gives the War Veteran a drink, when she hands the bottle back to Chrissy, she changes from holding it with the bottom of the bottle toward Chrissy, to holding it with the lid pointing at Chrissy. (00:43:20)

Continuity mistake: When the girls are at the diner, talking about how the waitress Wiladene is "off", Teeny has one hand on her Cosmo and one holding the pencil marking the answers, but in the next shot when Teeny says "What do you expect? She's a witch" her hand is just touching the edge of the table.

Continuity mistake: In the diner scene, the red can with the treehouse money in it repeatedly jumps around, from the table, to the counter behind Chrissy. (00:19:10)

Continuity mistake: When the girls are riding their bikes to the library, Chrissy's hair is up in pig-tails with pink bows. In the next scene when the go under the train bridge, her hair is down without any bows. Then when they come under the bridge, Chrissy's hair is pulled back into the two pig-tails with bows.

Other mistake: When Chrissy is having her baby, Roberta is helping, by being the mid-wife. When the baby is fully born, the baby just comes right into Roberta's hand within a few seconds, there is no way she could have cut the umbilical cord this fast.

Continuity mistake: When the girls talk at the picnic table, there are some chickens in the background that disappear between shots. (00:29:05)

Continuity mistake: When the girls spy on the boys skinny-dipping, the amount of shadows cast on the log that they spy behind constantly changes. (00:34:10)

Other mistake: Watch when the bird poops in Chrissie's hair. From the camera angle above them, you can see that Chrissie not directly underneath where the bird is perched. The next shot shows the bird poop falling directly below the branch. The next shot after that shows the poop in Chrissie's hair. Judging by the position Chrissie was in, in relation to where the bird was, this is impossible.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie Chrissy is curling her hair, her hair remains tightly curled while in the house. When she goes out to greet the other girls her hair looks brushed out, definitely not tight curls. Then, when they all go inside, her hair is back to tight curls.

Continuity mistake: Between the first shots of Sam at dinner, she lays her fork on her plate, yet in the next shot it's jumped back into her hand. (00:54:15)

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)

Continuity mistake: When Roberta falls over on the road after missing her dive onto Scott on his bike, a man ahead with a briefcase hurries across the road before one of the other Wormers can cycle into him, and another one of the Wormers cycles ahead of him. After Roberta vows revenge on the Wormers, and when Scott yells back at her, the man is seen crossing the road again at a steady pace with all four of the Wormers coming before him.

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.
