Question: How is Edith able to keep the drinking box straw in her mouth while in the coffin yet talk at the same time?

Avh1

Chosen answer: It is not very difficult to hold a straw between one's teeth, or gums and speak at the same time. A coworker of mine does it all the time with a pen.

Question: Are Gru's car and plane thingy the same thing? They look alike, but I don't know for sure.

Answer: I don't think so. When Vector steals Gru's shrink ray, he uses it to shrink the plane. This is before Gru meets the girls. He uses his car to drive the girls to Vector's house and then some, while the plane is still shrunk. We know the plane is still shrunk at this point because near the climax of the movie, we see it return to its normal size. So, the car and plane can't be the same thing, since one was its normal size and the other was miniature.

Other mistake: When the ride finishes, there is no sign of a safety bar in Gru's cart.
