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.
Peggy Sue was a popular student when she graduated high school in 1960. She married her high school sweetheart Charlie and had two kids with him. Now in 1985, Peggy Sue is attending her 25 year high school reunion. She and Charlie had a horrible marriage and are now seperated. At her reunion, Peggy faints on stage after being voted "reunion queen" and wakes up back in 1960! Now Peggy has to deal with her parents rules, her annoying kid sister and going back to high school all over again. She also has to deal with Charlie who is baffled by her recent bitterness towards him. This movie raises the question "what would you do differently if you had to do it all over?"
Peggy Sue: We had one glorious night together, someday you'll remember and write about it.
Michael Fitzsimmons: Yeah, I can dig that. Bittersweet perfection. Dogs of lust on leashes of memory.
