Corrected entry: When the heroes are in the portal with the guy who claims he wants to help them, the only exit is blocked by creatures they can't get past. Instead of correcting this, the film just cuts to the next scene, explaining nothing.

quite big

Correction: Since Enik is controlling the rest of the Sleestaks, it's implied that he allows the heroes to escape. Not to mention that just because something is not shown on screen, doesn't make it a mistake.


Corrected entry: The fossil of the imprinted lighter was from "250 million years ago". But the events of the movie happened in an alternate dimension - so the fossil would not have been found on Earth.

Correction: It would if it had slipped through a naturally occuring dimensional rift, the same way all the other things from our world got into the alternate dimension.

Corrected entry: During the scene with the giant crab, after it's boiled alive (relatively close to the "Motel", given the subsequent camera angle) it's nowhere to be found. They begin eating it, and (even considering the possible time lapse that would have to transpire in order to eat an entire crab of that size) no remnants are to be found, save for what they're currently focused on eating.

Correction: Since we only see the crab-eating scene from pretty much a single perspective, the motel and crab residue can simply be off-camera.

Corrected entry: Given how small the bug start of as that bites Dr. Marshall, when its on his back its the size of a gallon of milk from ingesting so much blood. The human body has 6 pints and that much blood being removed would surely have killed him despite the comedic factor of the gag.


Correction: If visual gags killed people, there wouldn't be a comedy in existence that wasn't a slaughter-fest. Over-the-top visual gags are a staple of comedic film making, just like "sound in space" in the sci-fi genre. Neither is considered a movie mistake.

Continuity mistake: When Grumpy jumps the chasm to chase Dr. Marshall, there's a large green bulbous plant that moves from the side Grumpy jumped from to the one he lands on. It wasn't there before.

Question: Would Rick have regenerated that quickly (overnight) after the blood loss from the giant mosquito and tick that he suffered?

Answer: It would depend on how much blood he lost and his general constitution. Of course, this is a movie, and reality is often fudged in order to tell the story. Having a character take days to recover would unnecessarily slow the plot.
