My Girl

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Thomas J. pulls the fish out of the water, the hook falls out of the fish's mouth twice.

Audio problem: At Thomas J's memorial service, Vada goes up to the coffin crying. Just after she says something about his glasses being missing, her father comes up to comfort her. Watch his mouth - he is heard talking but his lips aren't moving at first (they are in the next shot).

Audio problem: When Vada and Thomas J are running away from the bees, Thomas J yells, "Run faster, they're after us", but his lips aren't moving. Neither does Vada's, when she replies, "I am running faster."

Vada Sultenfuss: My fears and secrets: I'm afraid I killed my mother.

Vada: Mrs. Sennett, don't worry, Thomas J. Will be all right. My mother will take care of him.

Vada: I used to like to play with my Ken and Barbie dolls. Ken was my favorite. Then one Christmas I got them a camper and all they wanted to do was hang out in it by themselves. So I wasn't too upset when they took that wrong turn and went over the cliff.

Question: Was there a specific reason why Dan Aykroyd and Macaulay Culkin never appeared onscreen together throughout the whole movie except after Thomas J's death?

Andress Hare Clay

Chosen answer: Most likely because there was no reason for a scene of them together to tell the story. It is assumed that because Thomas and Vada are friends, that Harry has interacted with Thomas many times before. There could have been scenes filmed with the two actors together that was later cut from the final film. This often happens to quicken the film's pace, shorten the running time, etc.
