Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the movie, Pea-Green opens the freezer with a popsicle stick. Freezers seal pretty tightly, so the stick would break. Even if it didn't break, it would be too hard for a borrower to open.

Correction: If you slam or push a freezer door shut then, yes, the vacuum created holds it shut pretty well. If the door was closed without excessive force then it would open quite easily.

Corrected entry: When the exterminator (Mark Williams) accidently sprays the yellow goo onto Mr. Potter's face, it takes off his mustache but it didn't take off his eyebrows.

Correction: When the exterminator was pulling it off, he pulled it closer to the moustache than the eyebrows.

Factual error: Although cars are seen driving on the right-hand side of the road for most of the film, one overhead shot shows UK-style "give way" lines across the left-hand side of the road.

Peagreen Clock: Squished, or might get squished. Not much of a choice then, is there?
