Revealing mistake: When Matilda goes to the Trunchbull's house alone to get the Lissy doll, she's sitting on top of what looks like a garage, Matilda leans forward and presses down on the roofing shingles but they bend in a way that shows they are foam, not real shingles.

More trivia for Matilda

Question: One of the cops said Matilda would end up in a federal orphanage once Harry was in federal prison, but can't her mother take care of her? She seems to have no idea that Harry's a criminal, and also where is the evidence that the mother is involved?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: She knows. Listen to her and Harry after their TV explodes: "I told you that was a cheap set." "It's not a cheap set, it's a stolen set!" She knows that Harry is a criminal.

THGhost

Answer: Another way to tell is when Harry takes Mickie and her to his shop. She sees him using sawdust in the transmission and tells him he is doing something illegal.
