Now and Then

Other mistake: When the girls are in the diner and Chrissy is counting money, you see a picture of the tree house in a tree, it is the same tree as the one the girls use after they buy the tree house.

Other mistake: Really, that is one amazing tree house. Not only has it supposedly held up with no discernible weathering for over twenty years, but it manages to support four grown women, justifying their faith in bringing a newborn baby up there with them.

Other mistake: When Chrissy is having her baby, Roberta is helping, by being the mid-wife. When the baby is fully born, the baby just comes right into Roberta's hand within a few seconds, there is no way she could have cut the umbilical cord this fast.

Other mistake: Watch when the bird poops in Chrissie's hair. From the camera angle above them, you can see that Chrissie not directly underneath where the bird is perched. The next shot shows the bird poop falling directly below the branch. The next shot after that shows the poop in Chrissie's hair. Judging by the position Chrissie was in, in relation to where the bird was, this is impossible.

Visible crew/equipment: In the big game of Red Rover at the beginning of the film, as Bobby runs over to the four girls, in one shot all of the four girls tape markers on the grass are extremely noticeable. Sam is standing on a red one, Chrissy on a blue one, Roberta on a green one and Teeny on a yellow one. They're obviously gone in all the following shots. (00:01:35)

Teeny: Chrissy, truth or dare?
Chrissy: Truth.
Teeny: Have you ever been french kissed?
Chrissy: Are you kidding? I don't want to get pregnant!
Roberta: You can't get pregnant from french-kissing!
Chrissy: I know that, beetle-brain, but it's common knowledge that if you tongue-kiss a boy, he automatically thinks you'll do the deed with him. They can't help it. They're driven. It's the male curse.

Question: During the scene when Roberta is reading the newspaper about her mother's death, the printed article mentions that the truck driver who killed her mom was named Peter. Are we to believe that this is "Crazy Pete"?

Answer: There are two different men named Peter. In the shot of the newspaper while Roberta is reading the article, it states that the driver of the pickup truck was Peter Norris (00:41:35). Then Sam finds the article about 12 year old Jonathan Simms and his mother, Beverly Ann, so we know that "Crazy Pete" is Peter Simms (00:43:00).

Answer: We are never even told that Crazy Pete is even the old mans real name. It was probably just a random person who killed Roberta's mother.
