Flicks in Pieces: Cinemanachronisms



Flicks in Pieces is a regular feature devoted not to whole movies, but to the individual parts of them that we love and hate.

If you're a movie-goer of a certain age, it has undoubtedly happened to you: You're watching a movie set in a specific year, and you see something -- or hear a song -- that didn't exist in that year.

What cinematic anachronisms have most aggravated, frustrated or maybe just amused you?
