Character mistake: When Jimmy explains to the kids of the town where the aliens took their parents, he mentions the origin of the aliens being somewhere in the Orion Star System, 3 million light years away. The Orion system is way closer than that. It is actually less than 1400 light years away from Earth. 3 million light years away would place them further than the Andromeda Galaxy.
Continuity mistake: In the opening sequence, Jimmy uses a long string from Carl's shirt to help launch the satellite. Jimmy then launches Carl from the rocket. That same morning, Jimmy finds Carl hanging from a tree, and his shirt is intact.
Carl: Hey, this astronaut food isn't too bad.
Jimmy: That's toothpaste, Carl.
Carl: Oh. Minty.
Question: Near the ending, when the kids fly very close to the sun, how were they able to survive its super-intense heat?
