Corrected entry: Since the food falls directly out of the machine, and not from clouds in the sky, the food should only be falling in one general area at any given time, which makes the worldwide food storm in the end an impossibility. That being said, the purple food-shaped clouds throughout the film are unexplainable and pointless.


Correction: It's a fictional device which operates as depicted. It is depicted causing food to rain down all over town, and eventually all over the world, so that's what it does. There is no mistake here simply because the details go unexplained.

Corrected entry: When "Sardine Land" is unveiled, Flint says behind the pillar "I just need 16,000 more gigajoules", or something similar. Joules is a measurement of FORCE, not ELECTRIC POWER (hertz).


Correction: Flint is also a kid who's "security system" consists of a Simon game he's nailed to the wall. He needlessly dictates everything he does. This misuse of jargon is just another example of him trying to be "sciency".

Corrected entry: To make this film look more realistic Sony actually invented a new kind of filming. lt consists of a camera which is customized to translate the movements to a computer. That way they would build the environment and the movements of the characters and film it with the camera in different angles to see which is the best.


Correction: Not true; Sony's 2007 computer animated film, Surf's Up, used the same technique.

Corrected entry: Nothing happens to the food in the "leftover" place. The food does not rot, the ice cream does not melt and they are not infested with pests like ants.

Correction: This can't possibly be a mistake. If we can accept that it is going to rain food, we have to accept that it is not going to behave as if it were normal food. The whole movie is based on this premise.

Earl Devereaux: I know we all blame Flint for this. In fact, the minute he steps out of that car, I'm gonna slap him in the face. He made a mess of things, but that mess was made to order, and it's time we pay the bill.



In the scene where the mayor is talking behind the chainlink fence, with Brent in the background eating Sardines, you can see as the mayor grabs the fence the fencewire is going through his thumbs. This is on both hands and easily visible.
