Trivia / Peggy Sue Got Married

  • Dawson Casting: Turner plays her high school self at the age of 32.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: To 21st-century eyes, the 1986 scenes can seem as weird and gaudy as the 1960 scenes.
    • Two of the then-and-now gags are now themselves dated:
      • Peggy Sue warns her little sister not to eat the red M&M's or she'll get sick. The movie was released during the decade-long period when red M&M's were discontinued due to a health scare involving red dye. (Red M&M's didn't actually use the dye in question.) For the audience of 1986, it was the presence of red M&M's which was dated, but now it's the concern over red M&M's which seems dated.
      • "For some reason everything else gets tiny, but portable radios get enormous." Of course, she's referring to boomboxes, which are now seen as a fad of The '80s.
