Selena (1997)

Audio problem: When Chris drives up in the truck while Selena is mowing the lawn, Selena asks what he got. While you hear "junk food" his mouth says something else.

Continuity mistake: When Selena is singing "Como La Flor" in Mexico after the crowd was pushing into the stage, her mouth doesn't match the words to the song. Her mouth is a few words ahead of the song.

Continuity mistake: When Selena is in Mexico and is singing, she puts her microphone out into the crowd but somehow her voice didn't get any softer, so you automatically know she is lip syncing.

Question: Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the credits show that Panchito Gomez played young Abraham. I've seen Panchito Gomez in 80's movies such as Tuff Turf and he doesn't resemble at all the actor playing young Abraham. However, he DOES resemble the gentleman in the cowboy hat who stiffs Abraham money for Selena's performance and says "She's just a woman." I always wondered if the credits made a mistake. Anyone know?

Chosen answer: Looking at the credits on IMDB it does show that Panchito Gomez played young Abraham in Selena as well as the role in Tuff Turf. Given that 12 years had passed between the two movies, it's possible that Panchito had gotten older and didn't look like he was when he was 22 compared to mid 30s.

Question: Pete Astudillo is in the first scene when Selena was at the Houston Astrodome on February 26, 1995. He left the Dinos in 1993. I watched the original video of that same concert and another guy was on stage her, not Pete Astudillo. Was this a mistake or did they just keep it uniform for the movie?
