[Matilda] The picture of Miss Honey’s father, Magnus, is actually a portrait of Roald Dahl, the author of the book.
In Matilda (1996) during the adoption scene at the end of the movie Matilda’s mother says that they’re “moving to Guam” in an attempt to evade the US government despite Guam being a US territory further showing her parents stupidity.
In The Parent Trap (1998), the yacht that Annie and Hallie set up their parents reunion date to get them back together on is named “Halcyon.” Halcyon’s definition is “denoting a period of time in the past that was idyllically happy and peaceful.”
In The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) Zero’s nose is a Jack O’ Lantern!!
I’ve seen Home Alone a countless number of times and only tonight noticed that Joe Pesci’s character is wearing a gun shaped tie clip in the beginning.
In Home Alone (1990) when they counted the people for the trip they say there’s 17 people in total. An odd number between two vans means they will be split 8/9. Since Kevin was missing both vans had 8 people instead, making each group assume they were on the 8-people van, not suspecting a thing
In Hocus Pocus (1993) the fountain in the background of one of the scenes is the same fountain from the Friends opener.
In Jumanji (1995) Alan tries to convince Carl that he knows him by recalling he used to be called “Soleman” at the Parrish shoe factory. In the beginning of the movie this moniker is emblazoned on Carl’s apron.
In Jumanji, Alan’s Dad and the hunter, Van Pelt are played by the same actor. This is to show that the hunter represents the seemingly unreasonable and unassailable pressure that Alan always felt from his Dad, twinned with the pressure to survive.
In The Sandlot (1993), Babe Ruth asks if he can keep a Henry Aaron baseball card. Henry Aaron, better known as Hank, broke the Babe’s career home run record, the only player to do so at the time the movie came out.
In the movie Ri¢hie Ri¢h (1994) in the beginning of the movie there was a picture drawn by Richie of a classmate missing a tooth. At the end of the movie, Rich family mountain has a huge gaping hole where a tooth would be.
I’ve watched Toy Story (1995) all my life, but just now I realized the name of the company that Sid buys The Big One rocket from; ILL EAGLE Fireworks Inc.
In Toy Story (1995), one of Sid’s hybrid toys is literally a ‘hooker’.
In Hook (1991) actress Glenn Close has a cameo as the pirate who gets thrown in the “Boo Box” by Captain Hook.
In ‘James and the Giant Peach’ (1996), Jack Skellington from ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ (1993) plays the captain of the ghost ship James runs into in the icy waters.
It’s been shared before that Jack Skellington cameos in James and the Giant Peach (1996) as the cruel pirate captain, but how many of you noticed that Donald Duck was a member of his crew?
In Roald Dahl’s “The Witches” (1990) in the witches conference scene many of the witches are actually played by men
In Babe (1995), most of the animals on the farm refer to Farmer Hoggett as “the Boss”. The cat however, refers to him as “the Boss’s husband”, as for her Mrs Hoggett is the boss of the house.
