Phone Booth and IMDB stupidity *SPOILERS*

If you've seen the movie, you have to shake your head at the idiot who posted this on the IMDB as a "continuity error":

At the end we see a sniper rifle on a stand, but immediately afterwards, we see it being carried, without its stand, somewhere else entirely.

Can you say the word "dense"? I knew you could.

No. This is the worst one, for Lilo & Stitch.

"When Pleakley dresses in a female disguise it is an obvious reference to Kevin McDonald's days on Kids in the Hall."

It is? Um, right on.

Stupid not so much for the idiocy of the statement (maybe it was, shock horror, a DISGUISE), but for the "authority" in the tone of the post... sad really.

I wonder how DJ Cam Man would've reviewed that movie. Quite a lot of swearing and Farrell smoked. So I guess that's what, around 60 points deducted already?

Yeah, the IMDB has some real weird stuff. Check out the "Movie Connections" for The Last Temptation of Christ. "References Patchwork Girl of Oz, The (1914)." Eh? What? HUH?

The problem is that it's extremely easy to add information, no matter how erroneous...but very had to get bad information removed.

The "Movie Connections" thing is pretty meaningless without a one-line explanation. I don't believe you have to provide this when you submit the connection and it's clearly not provided in the list. So, it's kind of pointless to have "References" that's full of bogus stuff that can't be verified.
