How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Other mistake: When Martha May is getting ready to put up her lights with the cannon, she pulls a charging handle, and starts firing. If you watch closely, you see a lit string of lights come out, but the spool that they're on isn't moving, or lit up. Then after all of the lights are out, it still fires several more times (watch the aiming indicator- it continues to flash with the sound).

Movie Nut

Other mistake: When Lou and Cindy-Lou come home, Betty asks Cindy-Lou to unscrew the bulb in the refrigerator. A few moments later, Lou answers the phone, and repeats the question "Is my Sub-Zero Chillabrator running." Betty seems to have used an un-Who like term.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: When the mayor has his head shaved by the Grinch, Clint Howard grabs the clippers and shaves his own head down the middle. His hair is yanked off his head before he even moves his hand. Even better in slow motion.

The Grinch: The nerve of those Whos. Inviting me down there - and on such short notice. Even if I wanted to go my schedule simply wouldn't allow it. 4:00, wallow in self pity; 4:30, stare into the abyss; 5:00, solve world hunger, tell no-one. 5:30, jazzercize. 6:30, dinner with me. I can't cancel that again. 7:00, wrestle with my self-loathing; I'm booked. Of course, if I bump the loathing to 9 I could still be done in time to lay in bed, stare at the ceiling and slip slowly into madness. But what would I wear?
