** We are talking about a movie that has cars, dresses and culture from the 40's-50's Greece in the present day! I mean...look at the cars!

** It gets even more ridiculous when you realize that the woman, who is about in her late twenties in the present day (1994), wouldn't even have reached puberty yet when ''Film/SaturdayNightFever'' was in theaters, but in the flashback is as...er..."buoyant" as ever.

** The Roswell episode shows a lot of the failings of the 31st century characters' knowledge of history. The Professor and Leela don't realize that microwaves haven't been invented yet; when they go to a diner, Leela orders [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture "an injection of FemiSlim]] and a side of [[SoylentGreen Soylent Coleslaw]]", then the professor ZigZags by ordering "the paella, [[SchizoTech two mutton pills]] [[TheDungAges and a stein of mead.]]"

Sometimes, a movie about the period that's considered "[[RealityIsUnrealistic not enough]]" will hit a lot closer to home. The early and even mid-1980s had a lot of late '70s styles hanging around. The perm or wavy haircut was very common around the mid-1980s (the Cobra Kai guys all had this cut in ''TheKarateKid''), but you never see it being used when people recreate the '80s -- probably because it "doesn't look '80s enough".

Everyone in [[TheSixties 1968]] will be wearing [[NewAgeRetroHippie tie-dye shirts]], [[TheStoner smoking pot]] and going to see the [[Music/TheRollingStones Stones]] or Music/TheDoors while protesting UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar. For the uptights, every man would wear a colourful vintage three-piece suit to contrast Music/TheBeatles style moptop and every woman would have a [[BeehiveHairdo giant bouffant]] to go with her space-agey [[DangerouslyShortSkirt miniskirt]] and go-go boots as they ride on a Vespa scooter.
