Ladykillers (1988)

Plot hole: It's impossible for Morganna to have killed the stripper, leave, then get back quickly as herself.

Suggested correction: Archimedes was trying to be helpful when he pointed out the sword so Merlin could take it to the tournament. But after it became a big issue with the rays from heaven and the legend, Archimedes thought he might get in trouble so tried to act innocent by fibbing. It was deliberate and in character, not a character mistake.

Trivia: One time Alexandra Paul brought her twin sister Caroline to the set and successfully pranked director John Carpenter.

Audio problem: More than once in the piano playing scenes there's music playing even as the characters' fingers aren't touching the keys.

Ladykillers (1988)

Other mistake: The film's set in Seattle but was filmed in Canada. This is evidenced by things like a Canadian red striped postal box as well as cars with Canadian license plates.

Factual error: No judge would award guardianship of a person with something like autism to a sibling who's a recovering alcoholic and drug dealer.

Suggested correction: I think it is POSSIBLE, but not probable. Someone on the spectrum may have poor coping skills when dealing with strangers or would not do well if placed in an unfamiliar environment. Placement with a sibling - even one as you described (recovering alcoholic and drug dealer) - may be less traumatic and disruptive than with a non-relative or stranger. A judge would have to weigh the bad against the good while considering the person's needs and the sibling's ability to meet or exceed those needs.

Mr. Monk Gets a New Shrink - S5-E7

Stupidity: Merrigan should've removed the heroin from the statues once he got them, thus the whole murder of the cleaning lady and discovery of his drug dealings might not have been discovered.

Monk (2002)

Answer: It seems like a good lawyer could tear that to shreds. "When I said I'd never seen her before, I meant up close, in the same room. Look, a teenager had just falsely accused me of rape, you can't blame me for panicking a little bit."

Answer: Entrapment in and of itself is not legal. Entrapment entails the police (or agents of the police/government) forcing or tricking an otherwise law-abiding citizen into committing a crime; the person would lack the necessary intent to be convicted. However, merely providing (an already willing) person with the opportunity to commit a crime is not entrapment. Without knowing the specifics of the case you are referring to, it is impossible to know if there was entrapment. At the same time, the police know what does and does not constitute true "entrapment", so are not likely to try entrapping anyone - they would lose the case, defeating their efforts.

Question: Are Violet and Mike stuck as being blue and stretched out permanently?

Rob245

Answer: It's left vague in the film, but in the book, it's made clear that yes, they are stuck that way.

Answer: In the original movie with Gene Wilder, Wonka assures Charlie that "they will be returned to their nasty selves." In this version they are stuck like that forever as a lesson to other children.

Answer: It's unknown if they'll stay that way for the rest of their lives or if they'll eventually return to normal.

Question: When did Martian Manhunter get to Earth, why did he assume Martha Kent's identity, and where is she during Justice League?

Rob245

Answer: Martian Manhunter is played by Harry Lennix, who also plays General Swanwick, a character who appears in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman (and we can see he transforms back into Swanwick he leaves), revealing that Swanwick was Martian Manhunter the whole time, so the indication is he got to Earth before Man of Steel. He assumed Martha's identity to speak with Lois, specifically to have a heart to heart with her as she is depressed due to Clark's death. Martha is present every other time we see her, when she leaves the Kent home at the beginning and when she reunites with Clark later on. This scene was the only time Martian Manhunter used her identity.
