Footloose (1984)

Continuity mistake: When Ariel is climbing from the car into the truck, the weather is bright and sunny when we see her in closeup, and it is quite cloudy without sunshine in the wide shots.

Footloose (1984)

Continuity mistake: When Willard and Rusty arrive at the prom, Rusty's hair is asymmetrical and completely covers her left ear. When Willard pulls her into the middle of the dance floor to show her that now he can dance, her hair is much less asymmetrical and her left ear is perfectly visible. Her hair has not became ruffled while dancing, as the party has just begun.

Footloose (1984)

Continuity mistake: When Ariel is standing on both cars, from the truck driver's perspective, the trailer truck is a few meters away from a railroad crossing and the other two cars are quite near. The truck driver drives on, pulls the horn, then we cut back to Ariel. Now, the truck is far away and no railway crossing can be seen.

Footloose (1984)

Continuity mistake: During the "chicken race" there is a wide shot showing both tractors with a few meters between them approaching each other very quickly. Then Ren's shoelace gets caught, he tries to jump, and Chuck jumps off his tractor several seconds later. With the speed shown in the wide shot, the two tractors would have collided in an eye-blink.

Footloose (1984)

Continuity mistake: When Ariel climbs from the car into the truck, one of the wide shots shows her practically "stretched" between the two vehicles, with her fingertips and toes holding her up. In the next closeup she is back into the car down to her knees and she starts climbing out of the window again.

Continuity mistake: During the book-burning scene, when the Reverend sends the people home, in closeup it is obvious that he has a small rectangular pin attached to his upper jacket pocket. Before and after that specific closeup he wears no pin whatsoever.

Continuity mistake: When Ariel and Rusty are at the diner discussing Ren, Ariel drinks and puts the coke cup down, with her left hand under the table. A second later she toys with some French fries and both of her hands are on the table.

Footloose (1984)

Continuity mistake: During the "chicken race", there is a wide shot showing both tractors with a few meters between them. The supporters of Chuck are far away from Chuck's tractor and Ren's friends cannot be seen at all. In the next closeup showing Ren, his friends stand in the background just a few meters away from him.

Continuity mistake: Ariel's prom dress is a plain pink one with a wide sash and a prominent bow in the back when we see her getting ready. When Ren helps her into his car the pink dress is bustled in the back and has a narrow ribbon around the waist.
