Trivia: Peggy Sue Got Married

  • Dawson Casting: Turner plays her high school self at the age of 32.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
    • Jim Carrey can be seen as Walter Getz, one of the singers Charlie's band. It's one of his earliest film roles, eight years before his breakout as Ace Ventura in 1994.
    • Helen Hunt plays Peggy Sue's daughter, Beth.
    • A 14-year-old Sophia Coppola plays Peggy's sister Nancy.
    • John Carradine is the leader of lodge.
    • Michael, the bohemian poet, went on to play Beni in The Mummy Trilogy
    • Peggy's grandfather was Wilbur's neighbor Gordon on Mr. Ed. This was his final role.
  • 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.
