Goofs

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. See more »

Quotes

Peggy Sue: Then you think time travel is possible for people?
Richard Norvik: Yes. It's absolutely possible for people, for dogs, for cancan girls.
Peggy Sue: Oh, then I'm not crazy.
Richard Norvik: Well, I really don't know if you're crazy. I know most people think I am.

A warm and underrated movie
20 April 2003 | by (Ljubljana, Slovenia) – See all my reviews

Kathleen Turner is great in this movie, she more or less pulls off her task and is very believable as the teenager who gets to relive and, to some point, change and correct her past. Francis Ford Coppola knows exactly where to draw the fine line between heart warming and pathetic and does so with great artistic knowledge and taste. This movie is filled with memorable quotes, like "No more jello for me, mom!" and is altogether very funny. Great performances from a pile of familiar faces, Nicholas Cage is irritating at first, but is likeable at the end. A great score, a great and heart warming story, solid acting and nostalgia make this movie more than worth a second viewing. 8/10
