Sucker Punch

Corrected entry: Around the end of the movie, where Emily Browning (Baby Doll) and Abbie Cornish (Sweet Pea) are trying to make their escape, we see a guard (Peter Bryant) being distracted by some electronic device like an iPhone - he's holding it sideways with white earphones coming out of it. This movie take places in the 1950s. (01:31:20)

Correction: It's a transistor radio, you can see the man leaning forwards to adjust the dial.

Corrected entry: During the second dance sequence where Babydoll, Rocket, and Sweet Pea are fighting the strange gas-filled creatures to get to the map, Babydoll at one point picks up a spear of some kind and begins stabbing the creatures with it. However, there is one instance where she stabs one through the head near a wall, and it is blatantly obvious that she simply moved it to the side of his head so as not to harm the actor inside. You don't even need slow motion, I noticed it in the theater on my first time watching this movie.

Correction: It's her samurai sword, not a spear, and she is visibly stabbing the soldier in the shoulder, not the head.

Corrected entry: Before the dragon scene, when Babydoll is on stage she doesn't have an earpiece, but after the dragon fighting when she's on stage again she has it. (00:55:45 - 01:04:20)

Correction: It's still there as a result from the dream sequence: When her hair moves out of the way again you can see that it's gone.


Corrected entry: In the scene where the girls are fighting in the enemy trenches, Rocket throws a gun into a small slow-motion flip and catches it. Just before the camera shot cuts to behind her the handle of the gun is facing towards herself. The camera shot then cuts to behind her and the gun handle is now facing away from her.


Correction: No, the moment before the shot cuts, she catches the barrel with the handle facing away from her, and the next shot complies with this.


Corrected entry: When the main characters are into the second fantasy (the one about the war with the Germans), they get to the bunker to get the map and the doors of the bunker closes and Babydoll gets stuck with the enemies inside. Then, there is a shot just when she's about to kill the soldiers that are aiming at her with their guns, and you can see in the background that the gates are open and not closed.

Correction: That's not the main bunker gate. It's the side door from which the courier escapes.


Corrected entry: Throughout the film, we always seem to have a spin-around transition from behind Baby Doll when she enters a dream sequence. Numerous times in the film, when her hair is parted in the back into pony tails, every other shot showing the back of her head the position and line of her parted hair changes. Sometimes it's left of centre, sometimes it's right of centre, and other times, it's how fine-toothed the comb or wide-toothed the comb was used to part it.

Correction: We know very little about the rules of the different realities. The fact that Baby Doll's hair changes between the realities cannot be considered a mistake because we have no reason to question it. Her clothes change as well as her hair to fit in with the reality. It's not a mistake.

Sweet Pea: Everyone has an angel. A guardian who watches over us. We can't know what form they'll take One day, old man, next day, little girl. But don't let appearances fool you, they can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they're not here to fight our battles, but to whisper from our hearts. Reminding that it's us. It's every one of us who holds power over the world we create.

Chosen answer: Because what happens inside her mind when she is dancing is more important than the dance itself. Besides which, the whole movie takes place within her mind before the lobotomy, and most times when you dream, you don't see yourself as others see you.
