Trivia: When Ralphie comes down the stairs in the pink bunny outfit, the line spoken by the old man, "He looks like a deranged Easter bunny," was ad-libbed by Darren McGavin. Director Bob Clark liked it so much he kept it in. (Source: Quest Capsule).

Factual error: On Christmas morning when the Parker's are opening gifts, several Christmas songs can be heard playing in the background. Several of these were released long after when the movie is set (around 1940), particularly Bing Crosby's performance of "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas," which was released in October of 1951.

Trivia: When The Old Man is outside directing the placement of the lamp, and he talks to Swede (director Bob Clark), Swede is wearing a Miami Dolphins snow hat. It was turned sideways to hide the logo, since the Dolphins didn't come into existence until 1965.

They Live (1988)

Trivia: According to Roddy Piper, he came up with (arguably) the film's most famous line. While driving one day, he scribbled various versions of the line on a pad, based on interviews he had done as a wrestler and gave them to John Carpenter. The line selected was from when Piper faced Playboy Buddy Rose, and said, "I'm here to chew bubble gum and kick ass." "And I'm all out of bubble gum" was added on. (Source: ScreenRant).

They Live (1988)

Trivia: The homeless "camp" seen in the movie is real. To save money, and for realism, director John Carpenter shot the scenes at an actual homeless encampment. The people living there were paid as extras. (Source: ScreenRant).

The Maze Runner (2014)

Wonder Woman (2017)

Plot hole: How is it possible that Diana is unaware of the concept of marriage? She has a grasp of multiple languages and cultures and can recite Socrates. Socrates often spoke of marriage, so even if her people do not marry, it makes no sense that she is completely unfamiliar with this human custom.

Suggested correction: She has never seen a man either. She read about them, but never actually saw one. One might question why she doesn't understand a man if she read about them, and yet she doesn't. Same thing with marriage.

She had never seen a man, but she knew that they existed. She speaks multiple languages, despite never having met someone from any of those cultures. My point is, if she's so well versed in world cultures, how has she never heard of the concept of marriage?
