Continuity mistake: When Carolyn leaves the house for her first day of work the sun is out, then it begins thundering and raining. It's pouring while Jack takes the kids to school. When Carolyn gets to work, the camera shows a far back shot of her new office building and the streets and all are clearly dry - she could work in a different part of town, but then when she gets in the elevator, which is made of glass and on the outside of the building, it's soaking wet from the rain.

Question: After the scene where Jack convinces Kenny to give up his "woobie" for a couple days, he's in the kitchen and throws some noodle like things into a boiling pan. They immediately boil up and start to go in every direction soon looking like a mop head. What was it he threw in that pan and why did it react that way?

Answer: Deep-fried rice noodles. I believe they're known as cellophane noodles. That's actually how they react. You heat oil in a pan and when the noodles hit the oil they "explode" like what you see in the film.
