Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, you see that the baby Matilda's eyes are brown, but they change colour to blue when she's in the car.

Suggested correction: It was just the lighting. The sun was shining through the window in the morning.

Suggested correction: Clearly no sign of it.

Suggested correction: There is no view of the explosive.

Other mistake: The time on Miss Trunchbull's mantel clock is 7:45. Matilda uses her power to move the hands to 9:00 and the clock begins chiming. It should have also chimed when the hands reached 8:00. Matilda then moves the hands to 11:00. The clock begins chiming 11 but failed to chime when the hands reached 10:00.

Suggested correction: We have a grandfather clock and if you spin the hands past an hour mark quickly you hear the click like it wants to play the hourly tune but then doesn't. It only plays if you go just past the hour and stop. Trunchbull's clock may be similar.

Factual error: When Miss Trunchbull gets pushed onto the globe by the boy she just threw out the window, it shows Japan south of Asia. Japan is really east of Asia.

Suggested correction: Japan is shown correctly, with Korea west of the south part of Japan, China west/southwest of Korea, and the Philippines to the south of Japan. You can also see the Russian island and peninsula just north of Japan. It is a real globe.

Million $ Sticky Host: For those idiots out there who don't know how to play, here's how it goes. For each correct answer, they'll move one step closer to our Cube of Cash. Once in our Cube of Cash, any money that sticks to your gooey body, you get to take home.

More trivia for Matilda

Question: One of the cops said Matilda would end up in a federal orphanage once Harry was in federal prison, but can't her mother take care of her? She seems to have no idea that Harry's a criminal, and also where is the evidence that the mother is involved?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: She knows. Listen to her and Harry after their TV explodes: "I told you that was a cheap set." "It's not a cheap set, it's a stolen set!" She knows that Harry is a criminal.

THGhost

Answer: Another way to tell is when Harry takes Mickie and her to his shop. She sees him using sawdust in the transmission and tells him he is doing something illegal.
