Continuity mistake: In the scene where Madame Zeroni is explaining to Elya Yelnats about the curse that will be bestowed upon him if he doesn't carry her up the mountain after presenting the pig to Myra's father, her blouse is a blue button-up with gold stripes and no collar. Then the camera looks at Elya, and then back at Madame Zeroni. When it looks back at Madame Zeroni, you can see that her blouse is now a gold button-up with a collar.

Trivia: In the last few scenes of the movie you see the Attorney General (he's the man with the cowboy hat and round sunglasses) this man is also the Stunt director/organiser.

Question: Why did the Warden slap Mr. Sir in the face with her rattle snake venom?


Chosen answer: She was upset that Mr. Sir was making a big deal about Stanley supposedly stealing his sunflower seeds. The Warden is only in it for the treasure and doesn't care about the boys. Mr. Sir bothering her about a minor theft is irritating to her.


Question: Are all the boys sentenced to 18 months at Camp Green Lake, or have different sentences?
