Peggy Sue Got Married

Corrected entry: Several times in the movie we see Peggy Sue's room is on the upstairs level, but when Charlies sneaks into her room in the middle of the night, he easily crawls through her open window at ground-level.

Correction: He isn't at ground level, he's walking on the roof. We first hear him climbing, then he steps across the part of the roof that's in front of her window, then he climbs in.

Corrected entry: Peggy Sue laughs out loud at the fact that her father bought an Edsel, presumably because of her future knowledge that the car was a total flop. But the car failed precisely because people thought it was ugly THEN; it didn't become ugly in retrospect.

Correction: There's no mistake. The car was a flop then as it was later seen to be. She doesn't have to be laughing from future knowledge.

Corrected entry: While watching television with her sister, Peggy Sue sneaks a drink of liquor and sets the bottle without the cap on, back down. When she comes back in the house after viewing her father's new Edsel, she picks up the bottle and has to take the cap off.

Correction: While she is drinking, there is a shot of the TV, and her sister calling her back to watch--enough time for her to put the cap back on, so it would be there to take off again.

Ral0618

Corrected entry: In one scene, Kathleen Turner and her friends are riding in a convertible and when the reach their destination, not only is the top up, the car isn't even a convertible anymore.

Correction: The car is a hard top with a glass sun roof, not a convertible.

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.

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.
