Starman

Starman (1984)

Ending / spoiler

In spite of being chased by the cops, army, and the federal government, and thanks to getting help from strangers and formerly spineless Agent Shermin, Jenny and the Starman make it to Meteor Crater and he is picked up. He tells her: "Would you like to know what I find beautiful about your species? You are at your best when things are at their worst."

Mistakes

When Jenny Hayden and Starman accidentally overshoot their destination and arrive in Las Vegas, Jenny discovers that her wallet is missing. She has no cash, no credit cards, and no identification whatsoever. The only money she has is a single quarter. Starman uses the quarter to hit the jackpot on a 25-cent slot machine, then uses the prize money to play the Horseshoe $500,000 slot machine, which he also wins. They then use the giant jackpot money to purchase a brand new Cadillac and drive it off the lot. Huge problem: In 1984 (and today), you could never collect a giant Las Vegas jackpot without several pieces of personal identification, for tax purposes. Likewise, you could never purchase and drive a brand new Cadillac off the lot without multiple pieces of identification and a financial disclosure statement (if paying cash).
