Bubble Boy

Jimmy (Jake Gyllenhaal) stops Chloe's wedding. He then gets out of his bubble suit, saying one minute of holding her is better than eternity of not doing it. He then collapses to the floor. All the people he met burst into the church. They see he has 'died'. Then Mr Livingston tells Mrs Livingston to tell Jimmy the truth. She then tells him he's not dead and has had immunities since the age of four. He then gets up and kisses Chloe. They then run out of the church, revealing Jimmy has no trousers on, only kid-style underpants. Then we go to the wedding scene for Jimmy and Chloe. They see everyone in the film. They then get into the wedding car, only to see Pappy and Pippy have made up, with Poonani in the car. The car then drives off, with the vulture chasing it, seen earlier in the film.


Continuity mistake: When Chloe visits Jimmy's room for the first time, he reaches for his guitar and Chloe is seen from behind, at right, pulling her hair over and onto her right shoulder, leaving her left shoulder without any hair resting on or near it. When the shot reverses to show her from the front, her hair hangs freely down onto both shoulders again. (00:08:55)
