Child's Play

Deliberate mistake: In the scene where Mike is in the car and Chucky attacks him, pulling the skipping ropes around his neck and stabbing a knife through the carseat etc., in all the wideshots of the car driving, the stunt driver wearing what looks like a black woolly hat replacing Mike is blatant.

Plot hole: Andy is suspected of having killed Eddie Caputo, because he was at the scene when Eddie's house blew up and Eddie was killed. But there are glaring things that go unquestioned: None of the cops seem to think it's strange that a six-year-old kid would travel by himself so far to some random house in order to blow it up. The South Side neighborhood where Eddie lives is halfway across the city from Andy's apartment. How did Andy know where Eddie lived? How do the cops think he even knew Eddie at all? None of them address this most puzzling problem.

Suggested correction: The police believe Andy to be insane (hence why he is sent to a mental institution instead of juvenile hall), and thus do not believe his choice of victims to be in any way rational.

Also, as unlikely as it is that a six-year-old child could (or would) travel halfway across the city to murder a random person, the possibility that a child's doll came to life and carried out the act was considered far too outlandish at that point in the plot.

Chucky: You stupid bitch! You filthy slut! I'll teach you to fuck with me!

Trivia: In all, nine menacing Chucky figures were constructed for the film: a simple "toy" doll; a doll that could stand upright; a doll that could walk; two hand-held puppets for quick, specific movements (such as sitting, biting or flailing about); and expendable "stunt dolls" that could be tossed round the set or otherwise subjected to rough treatment.

Question: According to Chucky, he went to John to learn only how to cheat death, and then John says Chucky perverted everything he taught him. If not to cheat death, what did John think he was teaching him?

Chosen answer: He taught him how to call forth and harness magic. There is white magic and black magic. It's the individual's decision on which to use.
