Stuart Little 2 (2002)

Corrected entry: Why would the falcon want the ring? Even if he cashed it in for human money, how would that have value to a bird?

fan before the site

Correction: It's for the same reason humans have jewellery: owning valuable things makes one feel important.

John Q (2002)

Corrected entry: Doesn't it seem a bit far fetched for Anne Heche to grow a heart in 5 minutes? She coldly told Denzel to let his son die, then after hearing a phone conversation, she puts him on top of the donor list.

fan before the site

Correction: She is very professional and is following the policies set by the hospital. Although she does change her mind after listening to the phone conversation, there are a number of events that help her change. Some are, the strong reaction of all the people around, to what John is doing and the angry, emotional reaction of John's wife towards her (calling her a bitch) and so on. The events taking place around her forces her to realize what she has done.

Monsters, Inc. (2001)

Corrected entry: The mobile Sully flushes down the toilet, when he thought Boo was toxic, is hanging above her bed when he takes her back towards the end.

fan before the site

Correction: There are two mobiles in Boo's room. The one that Sully flushed down the toilet is still gone at the end of the movie. The other one is still there.

Corrected entry: If David Gale and Constance were such advocates for Life, isn't what they both did considered suicide?

fan before the site

Correction: It's not that they were "advocates of life", it's that they were against the death penalty. Suicide was never mentioned in the movie.

Corrected entry: David Gale was on death row for 9 years. After his death, they showed TV clips of the Texas Governor he was debating stating that the system works. That governor should've already served two terms.

fan before the site

Correction: David Gale was on death row for 6 years. They say at the start that the average length of stay on death row is 9 years but it is stated that he was there for 6 years.

28 Days Later (2002)

Corrected entry: If one of the soldiers told Jim later on that the head soldier lied and that the virus never left the island, why didn't they just go searching for a boat to get to civilization, especially since they were desperate for women and only men were coming to the shelter (the piles of dead bodies at the place they took to try and execute Jim)?

fan before the site

Correction: Farrell said it was his OPINION that the virus had never left Britain - and the other soldiers held him in very low regard, so they wouldn't care what he thought. Anyway, the piles of bodies were more likely to be those of infected that had tried to enter the mansion.

Monsters, Inc. (2001)

Corrected entry: Why does Boo have a mobile? She sleeps on a bed and mobiles are for small babies in cribs.

fan before the site

Correction: Boo actually owns a couple mobiles. (One with fishes and another with the solar system.) Mobiles are not just for babies with cribs. You can get all kinds of mobiles.

Lilo & Stitch (2002)

Corrected entry: Lilo is 5 years old throught most of this movie (She blows out 6 candles in the end sequence). Nani is quite irresponsible to leave a 5 year old alone, even with a dog.

fan before the site

Correction: That is part of the idea of the movie. Nani is struggling with trying to live her life, to hold down a job and be able to take care of Lilo. Lilo being left home alone is one of the main reasons that the social worker wants to take Lilo away from Nani.

28 Days Later (2002)

Corrected entry: When the main characters first got to the area they heard broadcast, there were citizen's cars parked in front with luggage, just like theirs, When they got to the house, there weren't other people. Didn't they think that was a bit fishy?

fan before the site

Correction: They did, Selena says right off that something isn't right and they should get out of there, but before they can the soldiers arrive. They are basically forced to go to the army base.

28 Days Later (2002)

Corrected entry: The movie implies that infected people will eventually starve to death. Wouldn't they die of dehydration first? They should've all been dead when Jim woke from his coma.

fan before the site

Correction: The very first infected people probably were dead when Jim woke from his coma, but they kept infecting more people who would then live until they starved, infecting more people along the way. By the end of the movie there was no one left to infect.

28 Days Later (2002)

Corrected entry: When they got to the shelter, the head soldier told them the virus wiped out Paris and New York. There is no way the virus can travel overseas. If an infected person could get on a plane (unlikely, given the very rapid effect), he/she would attack everyone and the plane would go down.

fan before the site

Correction: The virus in fact did NOT reach Paris and New York. The head soldier was lying in order to gain control of those people. Another soldier explains to Jim later on that there was no way the virus could have travelled off the island.

Mystic River (2003)

Corrected entry: Why didn't anyone bring up the fact that Tim Robbins didn't fire a gun recently? Don't they always look for gun residue on suspects?

fan before the site

Correction: David was not a suspect for quite some time after the crime. Gun Shot Residue "GSR" if any would have long disappeared. FYI, merely washing one hands usually removes GSR.
