One Crazy Summer (1986) Poster

Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Egg puts on the head of the Godzilla costumer he makes a motion as to zip on the head. A zipper sound is also heard. It is obvious there are no zippers, and when the head is later removed George and Hoops do not unzip the costume head.

When Cassandra is singing "Don't Look Back" in the Dew Drop Inn, Egg Stork is shown dancing with a wig on while the band is playing behind him, and although you can hear the backup singers' vocals, none of them are moving their mouths.

Character error 

Cassandra says DOW makes Mace. The DOW Chemical Company has never manufactured Mace. They did create Agent Orange, but not Mace. It is possible Cassandra was not being serious when she gave out the information

Errors in geography 

When Cassandra meets Hoops at the beginning of the movie at the gas station, they are in Falmouth, MA. When Hoops and Cassandra take off in Georges car it seems as though Woods Hole is right up the street from the gas station when Woods Hole is 6 or 7 miles from that station.

Factual errors 

Ack Ack was at the beach "Collecting shells", he was collecting them where the round was hitting. To collect shells he would need to be next to the cannon or gun shooting them.

Given the angle, trajectory, and distance, George's car would have never made it on board the ferry to Nantucket.

Lobsters would not be able to survive for any length of time in a chlorinated pool so they would have been dead by the time Teddy went for a swim. Lobsters are also rubber-banded or pegged at the time of catch on the boat so they would not have been able to pinch him.

Miscellaneous 

When Cassandra gives Hoops the hand-out promoting her show while walking on the beach, the paper says Sunday, August 1st. Later, the publicity that Hoops creates promoting the show says the show is on Sunday, July 6th (visible when Ted removes the paper from the arrow his dad shoots towards him with the crossbow). The only time August 1st fell on a Sunday in the '80s was 1982, but July 6th did in fact fall on a Sunday in 1986, the year the movie was released.

Revealing mistakes 

When the Ferrari is brought in for a tune up, Egg starts a chainsaw to cut it in half, the saw is running but the chain is not moving. However Some Older chainsaws have a safety brake and you have to push a button to engage the chain ( this button was gotten rid of due to its ability to cause a blister after an hour of use but still a chain saw maker used it up to the mid 90s)
