Continuity mistake: In the scene on the roof when the local hoodlum is attempting to take on the flying saucers you see the scene from two points of view. There are four people watching the local hoodlum getting fried. From the front, from left to right you see an old guy; a tall black guy; a women in pink and then a young guy with lots of hair. When seeing the scene from behind these watchers, you only see the old guy and the guy with the all the hair. Each time the angle changes the tall black guy and the women in pink are there.
