When Richard Norvick tells Peggy Sue to stand in front of a responding fire engine to see if she is dead, the fire truck is the correct style for the era, but the helmets that the firefighters are wearing are of modern fiberglass design with a salad bowl shape that didn't come into vogue until the 1980s when the movie was made. Fire helmets of the 1960s would have been of tin or leather construction with a more traditional shape. See more »

Every time I see this film, it leaves me thinking about it for days. The subject of time travel is a fascinating subject and this is the only non sci-fi film that I can think of that revolves around the subject. Kathleen Turner is wonderful as the 40-something year old mother of two who is in the process of getting divorced from her husband(Nicolas Cage), but gets hurled 25 years into the past when she passes out at her high school reunion. This is a truly touching film about going back in time and being able to experience your youth and priceless times that you will never be able to experience again. One of the most touching scenes is when Peggy Sue gets a call from her long dead Grandmother and doesn't know what to do or say. Also, be sure to watch out for some very early bits from Joan Allen, Jim Carrey, and Helen Hunt. ***1/2 out of ****.
