Monsters, Inc.

Corrected entry: Just after James tells Mike nothing matters, it cuts to a scene with Mike holding the ball from a snow cone and he has only two toes on his left foot. It then goes to James again and when it goes back to Mike he has three toes again.

Correction: If you look very closely you can see the hump of the third toe.

Corrected entry: In the first shot of all the monsters entering the scare-floor, there is a broad-chested purple monster without eyes. In his next two shots he has three eyes. Then in the following shot his eyes are gone again until his assistant gives him a whole bunch.

Correction: When all the monsters enter the scare floor, there are actually two very similar looking broad chested purple monsters; one on the right and one in the back, left, who is more difficult to see. He is the one with the 3 eyes.

Corrected entry: When Sully and Mike are going to work the first time, they are carrying lunch boxes. When they leave at the end of the day they aren't carrying them anymore.

Correction: Mike is going to dinner with Celia, and probably does not want to carry his lunchbox to dinner, and Sully gets mixed up in the whole situation with Boo, and has no time to think about his lunchbox.

Corrected entry: When Sully rescues Boo from the Scream Extractor, he picks up her door card key from the floor with his left hand and is carrying Boo in his right. But when Randall attacks him, you don't see the card fly out of his hand. In fact, you don't see it anywhere. How does he happen to have it later on the scare floor?

Correction: If you look closely, you can see that Boo is carrying it all the way to the Scare Floor.

Corrected entry: When Sully gets expelled from monstropolis, he wastes no time in locating a child's room so that he can return. None of the other banished monsters thought of this? And what about the monster that was busy scaring the occupant of that room? Why didn't he stop Sully or at least raise an alarm?

Correction: There is no point for the other banished monsters to return as Sully did, as they would only be hunted fugitives and banished/punished again. Other monsters may have snuck back in, but they would not be around in plain sight.

Corrected entry: In the scene when Mike, Sully, and Boo were all hiding from Randall in the bathroom, all three of them are standing on the toilet in the same stall. They look straight ahead and see Randall using the sink in front of a mirror. But, a minute later Randall is busting open the door to each stall. When he hits their stall door open, he is looking the other way, and doesn't see them. Yet he would have seen their reflection in the mirror. I realize that Randall's eyes were not looking straight ahead into the mirror. But, where he was looking, he would have easily seen a huge, bright blue and green monster. (00:40:10)

Correction: His eyes weren't looking directly into the mirror and looking the other way, yes. But if his eyes were looking that direction, his eyes would only be focusing in the specific direction he was looking at. He wouldn't be paying attention to anything else.

Casual Person

Corrected entry: On the scare floor at the beginning of the movie, there is a monster who starts wailing about a kid almost touching him. The door shredder is then called because they have a "dead door" when it goes through the shredder two pairs of handles come out. Doors only have one handle on each side, so only one pair of handles should have come out.

Correction: I'm watching this movie right now, and two pairs of handles did not come out - it was simply two sides of the one handle; one for the front of the door and one for the back of the door.

Deliberate mistake: When Boo laughs repeatedly while playing hide-n-seek with Sully in the men's room, nothing happens to the electricity - no surges as with all other times she laughs. [In the audio commentary by the directors, they explained that it would've been distracting if an energy surge occurred every time Boo laughed, so they simply didn't address the issue. A reasonable course of action, but still a mistake.] (00:37:30)

Henry J. Waternoose: There's nothing more toxic or deadly than a human child. A single touch could kill you. Leave a door open, and one can walk right into this factory; right into the monster world.
Trainee: I won't go into a kid's room. You can't make me.
Henry J. Waternoose: You're going in there, because we need this. Our city is counting on you to collect those screams. Without scream, we have no power. Yes, it's dangerous work, and that's why I need you to be at your best. I need scarers who are confident, tenacious, tough, intimidating. I need scarers like... like... James P. Sullivan.

Question: Why does Sully get surprised at the end of the movie when he sees Boo?

Answer: He's not as much surprised as he is pleased to see her. She's going to be a little older than when he last saw her because it took Mike so long to rebuild the door. So if he's surprised, it may be at how much she's grown in that time period.
