This film supposedly takes place over the course of roughly twenty years but that's not quite clear for a while and so I was initially left wondering why Dan Aykroyd's hair kept changing (movie character ageing is not quite so easily discernable when your main characters are already fairly old and thus the only real signifier is the addition of slightly more grey hair each time the year changes), but events such as Martin Luther King's rise to prominence aid in that regard.
