Corrected entry: Why don't the McAllisters simply contact their local Police station (or have someone from the US Embassy do it for them) and have them arrange for Kevin to be looked after until one of them can get back?
Corrected entry: When Kevin prepares the house to defend it against the bandits, he pours water over the steps at the front door and on the stairs to the basement. The water freezes practically immediately. In a later shot, when Kevin is running from the bandits to his neighbours house, you see that the street is covered with puddles of (liquid) water.
Corrected entry: The McAllister's flight arrives at Paris's Orly airport. Orly is used for domestic/continental flights only. DeGaulle is Paris's international airport.
Corrected entry: After Kevin has been out of the house and said, "I'm not afraid anymore", it was night, but when his mom calls from Paris and they send a policeman to their house, it is broad daylight and Kevin is still under the bed cover.
Corrected entry: The burglars plan to rob Kevin's house at five o'clock. After he talks to the old man who lives next door, Kevin leaves the church and goes home to booby trap his house. The church bells ring eight o'clock. (01:12:50)
Corrected entry: The family checks in to a United Ticket Counter, yet they fly an American Airlines plane.
Corrected entry: In the scene at the end when Kevin runs down the stairs to meet his mom, his hair totally changes in the next shot.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the robber steps on the ornaments as he comes through the window, as he stands up to walk, there are more ornaments than were in the previous scene.
Corrected entry: When Harry and Marv are swinging on the clothes line they hit the brick wall and it moves.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Kevin is sentenced to the third floor, you can see that the roof joists of this house are open and un-insulated, making this attic way too cold for use as a spare bedroom - something a resident of "Shermer, Illinois" and not southern California would know.
Corrected entry: When the Mom is in the airport trying to get a plane ticket, she offers an old couple her earrings and her rings and her watch, and they agree to take them for their ticket. At the end when she is hugging Kevin, she has her rings and her earrings on.
Corrected entry: When Kevin pushed Buzz and spills the milk, everyone rushed over to clean it up. Fuller runs over and gets stuck between the chair and the wall. Kevin's aunt runs over to Fuller, and she's maybe five feet away when the scene switches. It shows everyone cleaning up the mess. That lasts for about ten seconds then the scene switches back to Kevin's aunt and Fuller. She just got to him and takes him out from behind the chair. What was she doing for the past ten seconds?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Uncle Frank backs up into Fuller, you can see that Fuller braces for it.
Corrected entry: Electrical irons are bottom heavy so that they stand up more sturdily. How would Marv be left with the imprint of the top part when the bottom of the iron falls first?
Corrected entry: There was a blackout before the McCallisters' trip, but the automatic timer for the house lights went on as planned.
