Goofs
When Bob and Terry do a u-turn across the road to catch up with the girls, the cars on the other side of the road change between shots. There are no oncoming cars at all in the shot from inside the car as they make the u-turn.
Share this
The damaged Vauxhall Chevette has registration plates with a different spacing, indicating it was probably a different vehicle. (The original undamaged car reappears later in the film).
Share this
Thelma opens the door to Terry's flat by pulling the key through the letterbox to let herself in. As she does so, the shot changes to an interior one, where the key is still hanging on the inside with no time for her to have replaced it.
