Nim's Island

Visible crew/equipment: When Alexandra is being harassed by the hagglers, she gets into a man's truck after he tells her he knows where to take her. As the truck drives out of the shot the camera is reflected in the window.

Continuity mistake: When Alexandra Rover is about to leave the apartment to go and help Nim, she is standing in front of the door debating if she can go or not (she is agoraphobic, afraid to leave her home). Notice that the baby chain is hooked to the door. Alex Rover (the imaginary adventure hero) is leaning against the wall telling Alexandra she can and must go help Nim and that she must turn the door knob. In the next scene, Alexandra turns the knob and opens the door. She never unhooked the baby chain, and Alex Rover is an imaginary character so he could not have unhooked it.

Continuity mistake: When Alex reads Nim's first e-mail reply, there's an extra sentence ("He'll be back on Thursday") that Nim never wrote.

More quotes from Nim's Island

Question: Is Gerard Butler playing two roles a reference to "Peter Pan," in which the same actor usually plays both Mr. Darling and Captain Hook?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: No. Gerard Butler plays Alex Rover because Nim imagines him looking like her father. Alexandra Rover sees him like that merely for the sake of consistency within the film.
