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: 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.

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.

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.

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: As Peggy Sue and her friends walk down the school hall, she glances up and sees a Mylar balloon. While it is intended to remind her of the reunion, I wondered if Mylar balloons were available in 1960?

Chosen answer: It was meant to be an anachronism. When she is talking to Richard later in the film, Peggy Sue says "I am a walking anachronism", meaning she is in the wrong time for what she knows. The balloon is a physical anachronism, being something she brought back to the past with her from the reunion.
