Donnie Darko

New this month Factual error: In the scene at the bus stop Donnie asks his sister what will happen if she tells mom and dad about him smoking a cigarette and she replies "you will put Ariel in the garbage disposal." It would be impossible to posses an Ariel doll because Ariel did not come out until 1989, and the movie takes place in 1988.

Factual error: When Donnie returns to his house to find a jet engine has landed on it, we see them lift the jet engine up with the crane. Yet his family, complete with 5 year old girl, are standing right in front of the crane. Plus workmen are milling around underneath and about 4 FAA officials come from inside the house. They are lifting a 2000lb jet engine, and all these people are allowed to wander around while it's 20ft above them?

Kitty Farmer: Fear and love are the deepest of human emotions.
Donnie: Okay. But you're not listening to me. There are other things that need to be taken into account here. Like the whole spectrum of human emotion. You can't just lump everything into these two categories and then just deny everything else!

Trivia

When Donnie is about to enter the car with Gretchen near the end of the film, he clutches at his stomach as if in pain. Near the end of the film, we see Frank touch his eye after Donnie dies. Both of these are forward memories of pain: one of the deleted scenes features how Donnie dies - a pole goes through his stomach right where he clutches it. And where does Donnie shoot Frank? All together now - the eye.
