James and the Giant Peach

Corrected entry: Towards the beginning, when the peach starts to roll down the hill, the aunts get in the car to chase it. We see that aunt Spiker, who is starting the car in the driver's seat, is on the right side of the car. If this part of the movie takes place in England, why is the driver's seat on the right side of the car?

Correction: First off, the driver's seat, is on the right side of the car in England, unless you are talking about the right side, from the perspective of someone looking into the car, from the front. Even if that is the case, it is not illegal to have a car with a left hand drive in England, just as it is not illegal to have one with a right hand drive in the rest of Europe, or the US. As long as you drive the car on the correct side of the road.


Revealing mistake: At the end, when the NYC children are rushing toward the peach to scoop out a piece to eat, you can see one little girl running with a piece of peach already in her hand.

Trivia: While Centipede is on the skeleton ship, he enters into a room where the Skeleton Captain is laying on a compass, and Centipede murmurs, "A Skelington?" This was probably a reference to a previous Tim Burton character, Jack Skelington in "The Nightmare Before Christmas". The fact that the Captain greatly resembles Jack supports this theory.
