Corrected entry: At one point in the film, Benjamin de-ages too quickly. In 1941, in a scene taking place just after the attack on Pearl Harbor, he is shown as having a head of severely thinning white hair (long white hair, but thin on top). Four years later, in 1945, he has a full head of thick blonde hair, without so much as a receding hairline. If you reverse it in terms of a normal aging person, this means in only 4 years his hair very noticeably thinned out and turned from completely blonde to completely white. This is in stark contrast to the rest of the film, in which he seems to de-age at a more normal rate.calidude
Corrected entry: The eyes of Daisy are described to be blue, which for the first girl (aged approx. 10) in the film they are, however when Benjamin is leaving the elderly home Daisy runs out (aged approx. 15) to say goodbye. Just before she does this her eyes are brown. The next time we see Daisy, when she is dancing, she has blue eyes.
Corrected entry: When the baby is found on the steps and taken inside, the lady places the baby in a dresser top drawer which is then closed. In the very next shot, as the lady is leaving the room, the top dresser drawer is partially open.
Corrected entry: If Benjamin Button's reverse aging only affects his body - as it is stated in the movie - he should, as a baby, possess the intelligence of a geriatric person and be able to express himself. True, it is also stated that he suffers from dementia in old age, yet he should still be able to talk.
Corrected entry: At the beginning, when Mr. Button puts baby Benjamin on the steps of the old folks' home, he sticks some money under the top flap of the blanket. Later, when Queenie flips the flap of blanket off of Benjamin's face, the money isn't there. Later in the film, Queenie mentions the money - it amounts to $18 - so it was really there.
Corrected entry: When Benjamin was born, he was born the size of a baby - but with old features. Continuing with this theory, he should have died the size of an old man with baby-like features. Instead however, he died looking like a baby, the size of a baby.
