Corrected entry: When Zinnia wins at the bingo and takes the family to a posh restaurant to celebrate, she tells Harry he can't wear his hat in the restaurant because it's a posh place, but the restaurant happily lets the four of them walk in, even though they weren't dressed appropriately.Heather Benton
Corrected entry: When Matilda's father is telling the family the amount of money he made in one day and Matilda says the answer before anyone else, she is wrong. Matilda says the answer is $10,265. The first car was sold for $1,158, the second for $2,269, the third for $999, and the fourth was sold for $7,839. Add that all up and you'll get $12,265, the real answer.
Corrected entry: When Miss Trunchbull calls all of the children to the assembly, the tannoy speaker bounces out. The problem is, it doesn't match with what Miss Trunchbull is saying.
Corrected entry: When Zinnia signs the adoption papers she signs it three times. But, when Harry signs, he only signs them twice.
Corrected entry: When Amanda gets thrown over the fence, she gets up and shakes herself. She says, "Brrrrrrrr", however the sound is delayed.
Corrected entry: When Matilda first realises her powers, she dances in the lounge and makes cards, counters and other objects fly around. When she finishes, she sits on the couch, moves her hands in a motion, signaling she wants the curtains open. Nothing happens. Then she turns off the radio, does the same hand motion and the curtains open, so why didn't they open before?
Corrected entry: In the part where the piece of chalk floats and writes on the board - you can see a wire all the time.
Corrected entry: In the newt scene, before Miss Trunchbull says "I am God" the newt is climbing up the front of the glass. Just before it tips over, the newt is climbing up the left hand side of the glass.
Corrected entry: When Matilda pulls the adoption papers out of her bag, they have her parents' names typed on them below the signature lines. Now if she got the papers out of a book at the library, like she says, how would they have her parents' names typed on them? She hasn't written the names herself, so how did they get there?The Doctor
Corrected entry: On Matilda's first day at school, she gets out of the car and is holding her blue cardigan and school notebook in her arms, which she is still carrying as she enters the gate, but when the door opens and Miss Trunchbull comes out and the camera goes back to Matilda she isn't holding anything.
