Question: Why was Dr. Crews such a two-faced, corrupt, dishonest and manipulative person? He never intended to help nor cure Tina but wanted to exploit her abilities for sake of his own career, to the point of deliberately aggravating her. He was a psychiatrist so why was he so evil?
Question: Hopper's brother, who died fairly early in the film and really didn't do too much fighting of the aliens received the second highest Navy award for valor, the Distinguished Service Cross. Whereas Hopper, who saved the world, who had the initiative after his own ship was destroyed to commandeer a vintage battleship and lead it into battle, knocked out the aliens' ability to communicate, etc, received a lesser honor - the Silver Star. Why the disparity?
Question: Why was Henry excited when he saw Carina's ankles?
Question: When they notice there's a gap in the freeway they keep to that route. However, there were other routes available. Why not take them?
Question: When the 3 kids are in the back of the train, and they start rolling away and end up in Santa's bag how did the know-it-all kid get in there? People are saying he followed them but you have to remember they were in a moving train.
Question: Why do the boys decide to steal their parent's booze? They have three bottles of spirits between four of them, which is more than enough for them to get drunk. In fact, in Will Is Home Alone, they share twenty cans of beer between the four of them (five each, all things being equal), and are dreadfully hungover the next morning. Assume this is classed as a character mistake, it just makes no sense.
Question: If Laura was unconscious from blood poisoning, how did they introduce penicillin?
Question: What happened to Flounder's girl Sissy? Flounder never mentions her after he brings her to the toga party.
Question: What happened to Miles? He stops his motorcycle to look back at the flood and - nothing else.
Question: Does Marshmallow obey Elsa?
Question: Stewart gives the tower 2 minutes to talk to planes and tell them to hold at the outer marker. Why didn't they just use that 2 minutes to say they are under attack or something and to land elsewhere? They could have said it quickly and the bad guys wouldn't have had enough time to turn their communications off.
Question: How did Honolulu know that it was the castaways on that boat hut so fast? How did all those people get to greet them get there so fast?
