Revealing mistake: Many times during the movie, when there is a close-up of the puckmarin, tiny wires can usually be seen attached to its arms.
Continuity mistake: As David and the ship are leaving the NASA hanger, the straps that are holding the ship down start to break. From the shot outside the ship, you can plainly see the straps hanging on the front off the ship, but from inside the ship looking out the front "viewscreen" you see a clear picture, with no straps obstructing the view.
Question: Even though it's not technically indicated in the film, I always wondered if the young blonde lady watching the spaceship shown for a few seconds in 1986 just before David returned to 1978 was Jennifer (the 12-year-old girl David had a crush on in 1978). She looks roughly 20 years old now herself and I thought that could be her just to show what she looks like now (maybe there was a deleted scene with her in it). Was this a correct assumption?
