Muriel's Wedding (1994) Poster

Goofs

Anachronisms 

The film is set in 1994, two years after South Africa competed in the Barcelona Olympics. There should be no reason why David had to marry Muriel or anybody else in order to swim at the Olympic Games.

At the beginning of the movie after Muriel catches the bouquet, it keeps changing position in her hands (note the flower arrangement) although she doesn't move it herself.

While Muriel and Rhonda are imitating ABBA on stage, Tania and Nicole get into a knockdown fight and the entire table is disrupted. When we cut back to Muriel and Rhonda, the girls still sitting there just watching. We can see the backs of their heads, and their dates are standing enjoying the show as before.

David's last name is listed in the credits as Van Arkle (no "c"). The same error is made in the subtitles for the Australian DVD.

Crew or equipment visible 

When Muriel is trying on a wedding dress in the shop, and is admiring it in the full-length mirror, to the right in the mirror, you can clearly see a crewmember standing there, before quickly darting out of the reflection.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Muriel hands her father a check at the end of the film, you can see it's for $5,000. She says, "That's not all of it..." and in fact it isn't, because the amount was established earlier as $12,000.
