When Charlie shows Peggy Sue the book that Michael Fitzsimmons dedicated to her, it switches from having a dust jacket to not having one, and then back again.
Maddie's hair style changes between shots when Peggy first sees her outside at the reunion, when they are inside and Maddie tells Peggy to find a table, and when Maddie and her husband join the table.
When Carol and Maddie are driving Peggy Sue home after giving blood, on the way to Peggy's house, they pass the same blue car and the same red car three different times.
Incorrectly regarded as goofs
When Peggy gets into car after returning to 1960. The radio announcer identifies the song as Tequlia. This was not released until 1963 by the Ventures.
At beginning of movie, Peggy Sue and the actions of her reflection in the mirror don't match up exactly. Most of the mirror scenes were done with doubles in reverse, making synchronized movements very hard.
When Peggy Sue goes back in time, she reacts to the fact that her dad bought an Edsel with laughter and great surprise - since she remembers the events of her childhood, this wouldn't have been a surprise.
The Bose speakers at the "teen make-out dance party" didn't exist in 1960. Bose Corporation was founded in 1964. The distinctively shaped Bose 901 "Direct/Reflecting" speakers on shelves on the wall (above Charlie and his singing group) first appeared in 1968.
Peggy's dad brings home a "new" Edsel, which is a 1958 model, in the April 1960 setting of the movie. There was a 1960 Edsel, but its production was phased out by Ford Motor Company in November 1959 after only 2,846 of the 1960 model were built.
(Incorrectly regarded as a goof?)About forty minutes into the picture, Peggy Sue is having a conversation with science genius Richard Norvick and if you look carefully at the board at the front of the classroom, in the background behind the characters, there's a characterization of Saturn, with a couple of its moons; this characterization would have been utterly impossible back in 1960, when supposedly the scene is taking place. The details seen in this scene are way too vivid, and could only have become possible in the mid-eighties, which is exactly when the film was being shot. The thing is, in this picture, it must be remembered that Peggy Sue is dreaming all this, and could possibly recall what the planet and its moons might actually have looked like, given that it isn't the early sixties in her mind. It really is the middle eighties. Additionally, it's possible that director Coppola has placed the images of Saturn and its moons in the scene as a sort of a little joke on the viewer. You decide.
When Peggy Sue tells Richard that she had "come from the future", you can see that she actually said "back from the future" by watching her lips. The line was apparently overdubbed later so the movie wouldn't make viewers think of the recently-released hit movie Back to the Future (1985).
In the opening mirror shot's TV image, the text is legible, but TV image should have appeared reversed if being viewed in a mirror.
When Carol and Maddie are in Peggy's room asking about her date with Michael Fitzsimmons, the camera angle shows all three girls. Maddie says "Yeah, he's so cool and mysterious," but her mouth doesn't move.
When Peggy Sue wakes up in 1960, she is wearing the same dress from the reunion which has changed from silver lamé to pale blue taffeta. The dress is full-skirted with a revealing bodice yet no one questions why she is wearing a formal dress to school.
Charlie accidentally juxtaposes his words when he says "The Tigers have got four 20-game potential winners." He means to say "The Tigers have got four potential 20-game winners."
