Gone Baby Gone

Continuity mistake: In the scene outside the hospital, after Nick Poole has been shot, Remy Bressant picks up the bottle of liquor, which was capped by Patrick Kenzie and drinks straight from the bottle. The bottle has mysteriously uncapped itself.

Visible crew/equipment: During a shot of two of the bar patrons, a man runs past them in the background. The man is director Ben Affleck. He didn't realize it was himself until after he chose to include the shot in the film. (00:16:40)

Jeff Swanson

Continuity mistake: The scene with the two young detectives driving the crack mother of the missing child starts out with no rear view mirror on the windshield and no one wearing their seat belts. Then the driver has his seat belt on for one shot then it is gone again. The rear view mirror appears back on the window at the end of the movie.

Patrick Kenzie: And like that, she was gone. We gave our statements. Nick and Remy the same. All of us spared any blame for Amanda's death. Jack Doyle resigned on the condition that he and he alone be held accountable. He was granted the dignity of early retirement, but the humiliation of half a pension. It was an ignominious end to an illustrious career.

Question: Why wasn't Patrick arrested for killing the child molester?

raph

Chosen answer: Even though he executes an unarmed man, it is doubtful given the circumstances that he would be investigated with much fervor for his actions. One police officer has just been shot and killed so Patrick's actions could easily be described as self-defense in the eyes of an investigator. Anyone making a claim to the contrary would risk having to stand up for a child murdering cop killer.

Question: How could Amanda have gone to school or even left her house? She was supposed to be dead.

raph

Answer: A real life problem with abducted children, especially those abducted at such a young age, is that after a short period of time they begin to grow and look drastically different than when they were abducted. Amanda could have been home schooled for some time and passed off as the adopted child of her abductors to the general public after a relatively short amount of time. Unfortunately, the average person would likely not even recognize Amanda if they saw her out in public.
