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)
Monsters, Inc. (2001)
1 deliberate mistake
Directed by: Pete Docter, Lee Unkrich, David Silverman
Starring: John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Frank Oz, Billy Crystal, James Coburn, Jennifer Tilly, John Ratzenberger, Bob Peterson, Mary Gibbs
Other mistake: Near the end of the film, when the identity of 0001 of the CDA is revealed, number 0112 is shown both standing next to 0001 as Roz enters the room and behind Sully and Mike on the opposite side of the room. (01:16:45)
Henry J. Waternoose: Kids these days. They just don't get scared like they used to.
Trivia: The voice behind Roz, the number 1 of the Child Detection Agency and the undercover secretary, is actually a man.
Question: After Monsters, Inc. has switched over to "laugh power", the scare floor has a very different look. There's a board in the back with "JOKE OF THE DAY" written on it. Can anyone see the text of the joke?
