Corrected entry: In the beginning when the boy runs after his sister to save her from the witch, it is morning and it is light outside. After he looks in the window of the Sanderson house, it is dark outside.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Max lights the black flame candle and the Sanderson sisters return from the dead, Dani tells the sisters she lit the candle. However, later in the graveyard Sarah Sanderson calls Max the virgin who lit the candle. She could not have known it was Max and not Dani who lit the candle.
Corrected entry: When the sisters are about to be hanged, the lynch mob can see that Winifred is casting a spell to allow them to come back to life, yet the mob just politely allows her to finish the spell before finally hanging them. Bear in mind that this scene takes place at a time when people genuinely thought witchcraft was real, so the townspeople had no reason to let her recite a spell.Serious B
Corrected entry: When the witches follow Mary into the alley after singing I Put A Spell On You, Mary Sanderson said she smelled Scrod, a bottom feeder that would be good with margarine. 300 years prior to that, butter would be the topping of choice as margarine hadn't been invented until the 1800s, when the sisters were dead.
Corrected entry: Throughout the movie, Binx the talking cat speaks with a British accent. The movie is set in Salem, Massachusetts. I know he is supposed to be from 1693, but I don't think many Americans were speaking with British accents. Even if he was originally from England, I'm sure after 300 years he would lose his accent. But seeing his father at the beginning of the movie spoke with an American accent, I doubt he's from England. So where did the accent come from?kxj918zz
Corrected entry: When the children go to the old Sanderson house, Allison shows Dani Winifreds spell book. It is in a glass box. After the black flame candle has been lit, Winifred comes and pokes it and talks to it. Later on, Max has to smash open the box to get it out. The glass disappears and reappears.kaisha
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, Max's teacher tells the class the story of Binx and the Sanderson sisters (shown as a flashback). Later, Allison talks to Binx and says, "so the legends are true." If no one ever knew what happened to Binx, how did the story get passed down in the first place?tayero_diggular
Corrected entry: When the Sanderson Sisters first return to the house, Sister Sarah reaches up and finds her lucky rat tail just where she left it. It's been 300 years; the rat tail would have decomposed in that amount of time. It has been suggested that since she is a witch, she could have put a resistant spell on it. But we did not see her do that in the movie, and if we do not see it, we cannot use it to explain away the mistake. That "logic" could be used to explain away many of the mistakes caught by the audience.Robert Sullinger
Corrected entry: Thackery Binx switches between a British accent and an American accent throughout the movie.
Corrected entry: When Billy used the knife to open up his mouth from the stitches, he has no teeth, or any he does have are black. However, in the scene where Max takes the potion, the first shot of Billy after that shows him with clear white teeth. Then they disappear, until after Winifred blows up, and Billy says "Yea" it shows him with white teeth again.
Corrected entry: When Max first hands Allison the note with his name and number on it, his name and number are spaced apart. When Allison later returns the note to Max, you can see that it is indeed a different note.
Corrected entry: The zombie gets his fingers chopped off by the motorcycle but he is never shown missing fingers at any time in the movie.
Corrected entry: Max just moved to Salem and all throughout his house we are shown stacks of cardboard boxes, indicating that this is the case as well. One problem: Max's room has no boxes whatsoever, and is completely unpacked, yet he was attending school, and would have had the least amount of time to unpack of the whole family, not to mention he is the only member of the family who is against moving there.Jazetopher
Corrected entry: Zach can't die until the end of the movie when the witches are killed. He says since they are dead his soul was set free. That should have been the case when they were hanged. Zach should have been set free then instead.
Corrected entry: The lacing on the bodices is wrong, three hundred years ago the 'X' style lacing we use was almost non-exsistent, they would have used spiral lacing or ladder-style lacing.
Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the movie after Binx was transformed into the cat, he tries to get his father's attention and, toward the middle of the movie when the kids show up at the party at Town Hall, Dani tries to prove that the witches are back by telling her mom that the cat can talk. If throughout the entire movie Binx is talking then why didn't he say something to his father or Dani's mother to prove to them who he was?
Corrected entry: In the end when they are all in the cemetery, Binx jumps on Winnifred and she drops the potion. When she drops it, Max lunges to catch it. Why didn't he just let it drop and smash? He would have saved his sister's life and he wouldn't have had to risk his life by drinking the potion himself.
Corrected entry: When Dani and Max are in Allison's house and they are talking about the witch museum, Dani is surprised at this, but shortly after in the same scene, she tells Max that her friends told her about the place. Why was she so surprised when she was already told about the museum by her friends?
Corrected entry: The legend is that the Sandersen sisters will be brought back from the grave if a virgin lights the black flamed candle. In fact, that's what happens 300 years after they are burned at Salem. If the citizens of Salem believed in the witches' curse, then why did they leave the candle intact? Why didn't they have a non-virgin destroy it immediately?
Corrected entry: Towards the beginning of the movie, when the three kids go out to explore the old witches' house, and they bring the witches back to life; Max sets off the fire alarms to scare the witches. The whole place gets soaked, even the witches. In the next scene when the witches go outside, they are completely dry. The rest of the night the inside of the house is completely dry too. There is no possible way that everything could have dried off that fast.
Corrected entry: When Max, his sister, Max's girlfriend and the cat go into the sewers, before Max enters the sewers, he throws the spell book. Then they show him falling down and the book appears in his hands like he has been holding it all the time.
Corrected entry: After Max has drunk the potion at the end of the movie, he and Winifred Sanderson are fighting in the air and then both fall into the cemetery. However, the cemetery is hallowed ground, and according to the beginning of the movie, the Sanderson Sisters should technically not be able to set foot on the grounds.
