Peggy Sue Got Married

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene the camera pulls back from a bedside locker to an over the shoulder shot of Kathleen Turner's character doing her make up in the mirror. Close inspection shows that the shoulder in the foreground is actually that of a double who doesn't quite match Turner's movements.

Revealing mistake: Last scene in the movie is Peggy Sue waking up in the hospital. The very last shot of that scene is of the camera backing up from what appears to be a mirror. If you look closely, it isn't a mirror at all, it's actually a window made to look like a mirror complete with another set of actors to mimic the stars of the movie's actions.

Revealing mistake: Since they used an original game, the Monopoly's box is yellowed, whereas it should look almost new.

Suggested correction: Yes, there were Monopoly boxes of that colour, that's not yellowing at all.

Continuity mistake: When Peggy Sue passes out at her reunion, the first shot (from her perspective) is her on the floor, looking up at her daughter and Charlie standing about 6 feet away. The second shot is her daughter and Charlie crouching down close to Peggy Sue's face. In the third shot, Charlie is instantly standing 6 feet away again.

Factual error: In the scene in Bodell's Music Store, there is a copy of Al Martino's Spanish Eyes LP in the rack. It didn't come out until 1966. Also, You Can't Sit Down by the Phil Upchurch Combo was not a hit until June 1961.

Continuity mistake: When Peggy arrives at the reunion she is greeted by a couple at the front door. Lighting screens are reflected on their lenses.

Factual error: Charlie's 58 Impala is a sweet ride, but his license plates don't have the requisite year stickers. His car has the '56 series of plates, and each subsequent year would require that current year's sticker.

Continuity mistake: When Peggy Sue goes to bed after getting drunk, her mother tucks her in. First, you see her pulling on the bed's sheet only but when the camera angle changes, she is suddenly pulling on both the sheet and the bed cover.

Peggy Sue: We got married too young and ended up blaming each other for all the things we missed.
Carol Heath: So, he started having affairs and you started getting depressed.

Question: I never understood the significance of the girl in the wheelchair at the reunion. Peggy Sue makes a big deal out of the girl but never in her "flashback" do we see this character.

Jeanne Perrotta

Answer: You DO see Rosalie in the past. She hosts the party at which Charlie and his group sing. And Jim Carrey asks for the lights to be turned out. She walks, and begins to dance with her boyfriend.

No, that was Maddie's party. Peggy Sue's mom said so when she asked her why she wasn't ready for the party, when Charlie came to pick her up.

I finally see her, thanks! She's to the left of Peggy Sue and her girlfriends as they watch Charlie and the guys sing. Then she's the girl dancing on the counter at the coffee shop when Peggy Sue meets with Michael Fitzsimmons the first time. I always wondered about the Rosalie plot hole.

Chosen answer: In the original script, Rosalie (the girl in the wheelchair) injures herself in an accident. Peggy Sue tries to change things that happen in the future, including Rosalie's accident.
