Other mistake: The time on Miss Trunchbull's mantel clock is 7:45. Matilda uses her power to move the hands to 9:00 and the clock begins chiming. It should have also chimed when the hands reached 8:00. Matilda then moves the hands to 11:00. The clock begins chiming 11 but failed to chime when the hands reached 10:00.
Factual error: It is stated that Miss Trunchbull competed in the Olympics in shot put, javelin, and hammer throw. According to her jersey those were the 1972 Olympics. The hammer throw wasn't added as an Olympic event for women until 2000.
