Child's Play

Revealing mistake: When Chucky follows Andy home and drops from the chimney and kicks the cover off, its obvious that this isn't Chucky and its a real person dressed as Chucky.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Andy's aunt is sitting on the couch and Chucky runs by, look closely, you can see it's not Chucky but it is a person. (00:19:35)

Revealing mistake: When Mike is in the car being attacked by Chucky, after he hits a metal can and makes sparks, he swerves violently in the road, and on the road you can see several pairs of dark skidmarks in the exact same place as he swerves, obviously from previous takes. (00:55:15)

Revealing mistake: Look very closely at the way Maggie is knocked backwards after being struck with the hammer. It seems as if she is deliberately throwing herself backwards, which also means they may have used reversed footage.

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.

Suggested correction: We don't see the entire investigation. We just see the cops holding Andy then taking him to a psychiatric clinic. Chances are they were asking those questions and we just didn't see it because it's not important to the plot. Regardless, the cops have every reason to believe Andy either knows about or was partly responsible for the murders considering he keeps showing up at murder scenes. There's only so many conclusions you can draw, even if they don't make sense.
