Video

Continuity mistake: The dog catcher looks down at his gas gauge and sees that it's empty, and it's bright daylight. Then in the next shot he's pulling into a gas station and it's night time. Either bad continuity or if nothing else he managed to keep driving until night time on an empty tank.

Plot hole: At the start of the movie, a great deal is made of the boom mic that enters the shot. This is ridiculous, because Bolt's view would not be restricted to what was onscreen, he'd have a perfect view of the person holding the boom mic (as evidenced by it not being stable). There's no possibility of him not seeing the person holding the mic either. As Bolt completely and utterly believes the world he lives in, and thinks the situations he finds himself in (saving Penny) are real, someone holding a boom mic would break the illusion for him. In all instances in the movie where an outside force (i.e. a dog handler) interacts with him, Bolt never gets to see the person handling him (handler approaches from behind), the boom mic operator however is literally right in front of him.

Suggested correction: He wasn't paying attention and considering that his focus was only on the "action", how the hell would he notice a boom mic when he's trying to protect Penny? His "reality" is never broken even AFTER he's in his trailer.

Trivia: When Bolt threatens to drop Mittens from the overpass unless she tells him where Penny is, the bus from Speed (1994/I, with 2525 on the roof) passes underneath. (00:32:40)

More trivia for Bolt

Question: How is it possible for Bolt to go for five years without feeling hungry or even understand the whole concept of hunger?

Answer: He is spoiled to the point where he is fed so frequently and regularly and thoroughly. He's never felt hunger such as he feels while on his quest to find Penny.
