The Fly

The Fly (1986)

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Ronnie visits Brundlefly for the second time we see Brundlefly walking on the ceiling and wall, however his shirt doesn't remain consistent with gravity. This is especially obvious when he pulls his shirt up to show Ronnie his new tumor and then places it back down. The shirt appears to be being pulled up to towards the sky from Ronnie's perspective.

Continuity mistake: In the first successful teleportation of the baboon, there is one scene where Brundle's hands move from being straight to folded in just one shot.

Other mistake: When Seth comes out of the pod for the second time and the girl is watching him she moves her leg reveling panties. However, Seth comes over and they start intercourse. How? He doesn't even move her underwear to one side.

Question: Well into the movie, Seth's computer, which uses voice recognition, can no longer recognize his voice due to his transformation. How then, did he hook up the three telepods and execute the final sequence if he couldn't get into his computer?

William Bergquist

Chosen answer: He just used the keyboard. We see him typing on it several times before this scene, so the computer is not voice command only.

Grumpy Scot

Question: Why exactly does Brundle experience a feeling of euphoria and strength after his teleportation? Why doesn't he turn into the Brundlefly immediately?

Chosen answer: Brundle's just had all of his atoms separated and then joined back together with a massive influx of electrical energy; certainly that would generate some sort of sensation in cells that have never experienced it before. No reason to believe it couldn't manifest as euphoria and strength. As far as the transformation: Brundle's cells have been put back together with fly DNA in them, but with very little actual fly material, initially. It's reasonable to expect that as his cells die off and regenerate in the usual ways, they are replaced not by human ones, but by human/fly hybrids. As this happens, he becomes gradually more fly-like.

Rooster of Doom

Question: What would have happened if Seth had successfully made the teleportation with Ronnie?

Chosen answer: Actually, if the teleportation had followed through, then four bodies would have merged into one: Ronnie, Seth, Fly, Baby. Remember, Ronnie was pregnant.
