Corrected entry: When rescuing the children on Olaf's boat, Mr. Poe finally tells Count Olaf that he would not inherit the Baudelaire's fortune if anything were to happen to them, as only "blood relatives and married couples" would, initiating Olaf's plot to marry Violet. But at the beginning of the movie, while Poe is bringing the children to Count Olaf for the first time, he tells them that Olaf is their closest relative ("either your third cousin four times removed or your fourth cousin three times removed").AnthonyA
Corrected entry: When they first arrive at Olaf's house, we see Mr Poe look in, then we see Olaf look at Poe. The part of the peep hole that opens is at the left side of the screen, but when it closes it's at the top.
Corrected entry: When the Baudelaires are about to be hit by a train, Violet says "Klaus, you've read books on trains. What do we do?" Klaus says "The track switch" and then the camera shot changes and zooms in on the car, but if you look closely, Klaus's mouth doesn't move when he says "There".
Corrected entry: In the scene where Violet, Klaus, Sunny, and Aunt Josephine are leaving Curdled Cave after Klaus figured out the code from the "suicide note", you can see a lighthouse in the background. The light from the lighthouse moves around the side of the lighthouse that is facing the children and Aunt Josephine. It takes about 2 seconds to do this. Then the light goes around the back, and it does not reappear for around 6 seconds. The light should take the same time to go around the front and the back.
Corrected entry: When Aunt Josephine is opening the big window with the chain to look out at the water, the metal circular thing comes open in a smooth straight motion while Aunt Josephine is pulling on the chains in a pull-pause-pull motion.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the snake coils to reveal letters in a clue, "impostor" is misspelled as "imposter."
Corrected entry: When the Baudelaires have just escaped from Aunt Josephine's house, they hear count Olaf/Captain Sham on a loudspeaker, telling them that he is their new guardian. Wouldn't all people who heard this be just a little bit suspicious? Nobody else in town would really know that Aunt Josephine is dead, or that she willed the orphans to him, so he is giving himself away.
Corrected entry: When the Baudelaire orphans meet Uncle Monty, he tells them that they are going to Peru the next day. The next day comes and Uncle Monty is dead. The police are investigating the scene and Stephano says that they were planning a trip to Peru tomorrow. So in the first place Uncle Monty should have said that they were planning to go to Peru in two days time.
Corrected entry: When the orphans discuss with Uncle Monty the fact that the new "assistant" is an impostor, and really Count Olaf. Uncle Monty agrees, reeling off a lot of facts about snakes that the "assistant" got wrong. Uncle Monty concludes that the "assistant" is in fact a spy from the Herpotological society. A real spy from a society dealing with the study of snakes ought to know more about Snakes, not less? It makes no sense for Uncle Monty to come to this conclusion.
Corrected entry: After Count Olaf "rescues" the children from the leaches, he has all of his hair although when he was pretending to be Captain Sham, it is very clear that he has shaved off his hair and buzzed the sides. How did he grow his hair back so fast? I understand that he is an actor and make-up expert, but you can see where his hair has been buzzed along the sides of his head.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Baudelaires and Aunt Josephine meet Captain Sham in the market place, they are trying to convince her that he is actually Count Olaf in disguise. Violet starts a sentence by saying, "Klaus and I," when Aunt Josephine says, "Klaus and me". If grammar is Aunt Josephine's passion in life, than she of all people would know that "Klaus and I" is indeed the correct term.
