Visible crew/equipment: Right after squints kiss Wendy, Wendy pulls squints to his feet. When she starts dragging him out you can briefly see crew members over by the concession stands.

Suggested correction: I pulled up this scene on YouTube and watched over it at least a dozen times. The concessions stand is far in the background and the camera pans across it quickly, so even pausing the scene, you still can't definitively make out that anyone is standing over in that area, much less anyone that can be positively identified as a crew member.

Continuity mistake: When the treehouse is about to explode, we see Bertram say he's getting out of there and go down the ladder. Then after some scenes we see him running out of the tree house when he was supposedly already down on the ground.

Suggested correction: The tree house has 3 levels. Bertram went up the ladder to warn them on the third level. And is still on the second level as they all exit the tree house.

Question: At the end of the movie, it shows Benny managing to steal home, being called safe, the catcher arguing that Benny was out and the umpire saying Benny was safe. In slow motion, it shows the catcher catching the ball and tagging Benny as he slides into home so why wasn't Benny called out?

Answer: The umpire got the call wrong in that case. It happens all the time in real life. It wasn't allowed back then, but now Major League Baseball and other sports leagues will use instant replay to make sure they get close calls right.

Answer: The catcher tags Benny on the chest after he touches home plate with his left hand. Safe.

Answer: The film shows Benny beating the tag. Although the ball gets there before Benny, the catcher tags Benny a split second after his hand touches home plate.
