Magnolia

Question: What do the frogs stand for? Is it a biblical reference, or could the screenwriters just not think of a better way to wrap up?

Answer: It's much debated the exact meaning, but it's kind of a reference saying that seemingly impossible things do happen. As we see later in the film, people stuck in similarly impossible situations might just have a chance of getting out of them.

Continuity mistake: In the opening scenes, the police officer carries a shotgun to his vehicle. When he gets into the car, he's got a flashlight and a nightstick.

Trivia: During the beginning of the movie, and a little in to it, the number "82" appears 6 or more times, in various places (tattoo on guy being hanged, time is 8:20, etc.) If you consult a bible, you will see that in Chapter 8, verse 2, in the book of Exodus, the passage talks about the appearance of frogs when Aaron holds out his hand.
