Other mistake: When Agnes screams after the evil minion tries to eat her unicorn, the noise shatters glass items and a sculpture on the mantelpiece as well as the evil minion's goggles. But Margo's glasses do not appear shattered at all.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Glass shatters due to a loud sound because of a phenomenon called sonic resonance. If the glasses' natural vibration frequency doesn't match the frequency of the scream, they won't shatter.

Suggested correction: Maybe Margo's glasses are made of hard plastic, not glass.


Suggested correction: Her lenses could very well be made of plastic, which would not shatter like glass.

Other mistake: As Eduardo goes to leave the cupcake shop, Gru believes he could be El Macho and Eduardo leaves. Gru tells Lucy about El Macho for about 90 seconds, then Eduardo is seen from outside the cake shop window only just about to go up the escalator, when the distance between the shop and escalator is only a few meters.

Other mistake: After Gru has left El Macho's lair, Gru goes to get the girls and finds Margo sitting at a table eating from a nacho hat that has guacamole in it. The hat is slanted sideways, but the guacamole remains in fixed position and never slides to the side. (01:09:20)

Question: What happens when you call the number on Lucy's card? It is not a 555 number, so who answers?

Answer: If you dial the number (626-584-5723), it will reach an answering machine recording of Lucy Wilde asking if you want to apply for the Anti-Villain League.
