Edward Scissorhands

Plot hole: At the end of the film, we see Edward carving ice sculptures in his mansion. How did he get the ice up there? First of all, it takes place in a warm climate and I didn't see a freezer up there in the castle. He couldn't have gotten ice from town because firstly he had scissors for hands and couldn't have gripped the ice. And, even if by some miracle he could, he wouldn't be able to buy any from town because everyone in town but Kim was convinced that Edward was dead, she told everyone that they killed each other. And Kim didn't bring it to him because she told her granddaughter in the end that she never saw him again after that night. So where did he get that ice?

Continuity mistake: Before Edward is looking at the family pictures you can see some scars on his face are open, when the camera focuses back on him the scars are closed.

Continuity mistake: When Officer Allen is talking to the psychologist, he begins to raise his hands towards his head right before he says "But will he be all right?" but in the next shot his hands are down by his side.

More quotes from Edward Scissorhands

Question: I have seen the movie several times, but I cannot figure this out. Why does Jim want to steal items from his own house in order to get money for a car? If the plan had been successful, his father would probably find it strange that he had money for a car after their house was robbed. Especially because Jim's father is aware that Jim wants a car, since Jim complained about his father being too "cheap" to buy him one. Would it not make more sense to rob another person's house?

Chosen answer: If the robbery had been successful, Jim would have been able to accuse Edward of robbing the house with his friends backing him up. Jim probably would have kept the car at a friend's house to avoid suspicion. Since the house belongs to Jim's father, nobody would question him going inside. If Jim and his friends tried to rob someone else's house, there would be the chance that somebody would be home or that a burglar alarm could go off and alert the neighbors and the police.

Question: In the scene where Edward kills Kim's boyfriend, we see Kim run to the window after him, there is blood on her arm. Where did it come from?

Chosen answer: Probably from her brother's cuts.

Kirill Ostapenko

New this month Answer: The blood came from another wound on Jim's body. Edward did cut him on his arm and he does fall back onto Kim so she could have gotten some blood onto her dress that way.

Question: How old is Edward?

Chosen answer: It is never stated.
