The opening shot of the film is an optical illusion. Because the camera and crew would have been seen in the reflection of the mirror had the scene been shot in a conventional manner, there is a body double for Turner (only she can be seen from behind in the shot) on the other side of the "mirror", doing the exact opposite of the star's movements, giving the illusion that Turner and Hunt are reflections, when in fact they are the real actors in tableau with a body double sitting in front of them with her back to the camera in front of an empty mirror frame, framing a hole in the wall of the set.

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. See more »
In the reunion of the twentieth-fifth anniversary of high school, the former popular student Peggy Sue, who is facing a divorce of her husband Charlie Bodell (Nicolas Cage), faints and wakes up in 1960. The experienced Peggy Sue decides to change and improve her life in this new opportunity.
"Peggy Sue Got Married" is a delightful and charming fantasy about reevaluation and a second chance in life. The story is very beautiful, the production is very careful and I am really surprised how underrated this movie is in IMDb. I do not get tired of this film, and it is among my favorite romances. Kathleen Turner is extremely beautiful in the lead role, and watching this movie in 2005, it is a great chance to see names like Jim Carrey, Joan Allen and Sofia Coppola twenty years ago in the beginning of their careers. In Brazil, unfortunately this movie has not been released on DVD. My vote is nine.
Title (Brazil): "Peggy Sue Seu Passado a Espera" ("Peggy Sue Your Past Waits For You')
