Bride of Chucky

Plot hole: In the end of the film it is heard the police want to exhume the body of Charles Lee Ray from his grave site in New Jersey. Now when Chucky and the crew get to the grave site they find and kill a coroner who is digging up the body. He is the only one there at 1am, by himself, a lonely coroner without any police officers, after all this is a police investigation and I doubt the cops would have him there alone. Then right at the end the Detective who is hunting them arrives. Now he is a cop from Lockport, about six states away. A. Why did he drive all that way to see the body? B. A cop from all the way down there shows up but no new Jersey cops are at the scene?


Revealing mistake: When they are all in the camper van Tiffany gives Chucky a biscuit then walks away from him, from the way she gave him the plate, they would have all fallen off. (01:07:35)


Continuity mistake: When Chucky kills the coroner there is a generous amount of blood splashing on the gravestone. But in the next shot we can see that he is standing next to the gravestone. Chucky shot the coroner in the back of the head since he was looking in the other direction and is falling on his face, so there should be no blood on the gravestone.


Other mistake: When Tiff picks up Chucky to throw him into the crib, you can tell that the Chucky doll is inactive and not on or alive. (00:21:20)


Other mistake: In the beginning, when Tiffany has just had her soul put into the bride doll, she is reading the "Voodoo for Dummies" book and Chucky tells her that the page she is looking for is in Chapter Six, page 217. When she flips to it, the camera shows the top of the page before panning downwards. On the top of the page it very clearly says "Chapter Eleven". (00:31:45)


Continuity mistake: In part 3, the left side of Chucky's face was sliced off, but in this film Tiffany sews the right side together.


Revealing mistake: When the gay friend finds the dead chief in the van, he gets out and runs in front of a lorry. Watch closely and you'll see the blood starts flying before he has even disappeared behind the truck. (01:04:05)


Continuity mistake: Jade is in the grave when she throws the amulet to Chucky. Seconds later, after Jesse shows up, it cuts to her standing out of the grave, but she wouldn't have had time to climb out yet.


Continuity mistake: Chucky tells Tiffany that he was wearing the amulet the night he was shot and killed. In Child's Play, when Charles Lee Ray is looking for somebody to transfer his soul into, when he is walking along the bars it shows a good shot of his whole shirt and he is not wearing an amulet.

Suggested correction: He was wearing the amulet under his shirt.


Continuity mistake: Just after Chucky blows up Needlenose's cop car a bonnet or something flies off. In the next frame someone is in the payphone then a fraction of a second later they are outside it running away about three feet from the payphone as it disintegrates.


Continuity mistake: In the first film, when Charles Lee Ray died and the Police Officer found him, his eyes were open, his mouth closed, his face clean, clothes in perfect condition, and head staring straight up into the sky. When Chucky holds up the picture of him dead in this one, his eyes are shut, his mouth is open (and there's blood coming out of it), his face is dirty and facing to the side, he's missing parts of his clothing (e.g. his tie), and his shirt is now wide open. His body is still in the same place it's was when he died, because the floor is the same, and there's doll boxes around him.


Plot hole: When Tiffany locks Chucky in the wooden cage, (The "Nursery" she calls it) you can see her lock the top. The problem is that the lock is put on in such a way that it would not actually keep Chucky in the cage. It is on the top of the cage, but doesn't connect with the cage at any other part. It simply wouldn't work.


Continuity mistake: When the cop finds the dead Tiffany doll shortly before she is giving birth to the baby doll there is neither blood on her dress nor a hole in it. But in the first shot after she was stabbed she is lying on her back and her dress has blood all over it and a pretty big hole in it.


Continuity mistake: In the beginning when Tiffany is taking a bath and Chucky escapes out of the crib he walks in there and the curtains had 3 butterflies on them. Then the part when Jesse walks in to the trailer you can see that the butterflies are now on the other side of the curtains.


Deliberate mistake: When Tiff (as a doll) lights her Zippo you don't see her clicking the flint, even though one can hear a 'clicking' sound. (00:33:35)


Continuity mistake: Tiffany drops Chucky in a prison-like playpen she calls the "nursery" and closes the cage, causing a folded purple blanket over the hood to slide back, then locks the cage to the hood. In the full-view shots, the blanket is up to the lock, and in the close-up shots of Chucky, the blanket is against the wall.


Continuity mistake: When David opened the chest and saw Warren inside, Warren's shirt was soaked in blood. When he opened it again to show Jesse and Jade, his shirt was completely clean; not a sign of blood anywhere.


Continuity mistake: There is a scene where Jade, Jesse, and the two dolls pull up to a wedding chapel. We see them pass a neon statue of what appears to be the Virgin Mary. While Jade and Jesse are inside the chapel getting married, Tiffany looks out of the windshield and comments on how beautiful the statue is. Apparently Jesse backed the van up about 50 feet before parking it, and the chapel apparently moved with him.


Continuity mistake: When Jade pulls the amulet off Charles Lee Ray's skeleton, she snaps the neck and it falls off. A minute later when Chucky falls into the grave the head is back on.


Continuity mistake: When Jade and Jesse begin making out in the car, Jade is climbing into the backseat with both her hands around Jesse. When it cuts, Jade has her right hand on the driver's seat. (00:08:05)


Damien: Come on, let me in or I'm likely to catch my death out here.
Tiffany: Promises, promises.

Trivia: The "Voodoo for Dummies" book Tiff reads was a prop made for the movie. The apparent author is Don Mancini, the script writer. There is however a "Complete Idiot's Guide to Voodoo".

More trivia for Bride of Chucky

Question: It was discovered that Chucky was able to transfer his soul into Andy's Good Guy in the first movie by not only saying a chant but also using a magic amulet. So why, in the other three movies, when he is starting the chant does he not need the amulet to transfer his soul out of the doll into someone else, but in this movie, he needs to use it if he wants to return to his own body?

Answer: There's two possible explanations. First, and the most likely, is that this is simply what's referred to as a "retcon." (Short for "Retroactive Continuity") A term to describe new information/rules/backstory/etc. that are introduced in order to alter the path of a story, or impose new ideas into a narrative. In this case, the series creator and writer Don Mancini needed a reason for the characters to go on a road-trip, hence he created this new idea for an amulet that Chucky need to obtain. And basically, Mancini himself has admitted that he will often change the rules for the series as needed from film to film based on the story he wants to tell, which makes this the more plausible explanation. The second possible explanation is that you could argue that the amulet will allow Chucky to transfer his soul regardless of how long he's been in the doll's body, surpassing the time limit imposed in previous films. But in all seriousness, the former is the more likely explanation. They just needed a new story-element to justify the road-trip aspect of the story.


Both answers work for me. Thank you.
