  • In the scene where the girl playing the piano gradually gets all of her clothes sucked off before being sucked up and out the chimney, am I the only one who finds those cutaway shots that show how everyone else at the party is just standing at a safe distance watching this happen to be a little, well, weird? It adds almost a creepy, voyeuristic feel to the scene.
    • Rule of Funny + Rule of Sexy
    • Besides, what do you want them to do? They're watching someone get sucked into a magical vortex, with no idea if they could actually do anything about it. Not everyone's a hero.
  • Seriously, why does Lisa even have magical abilities? The only thing I can think of is that one of the things Gary and Wyatt scanned in was a poster of Harry Houdini, but why would they do that if they didn't know she would become real?
    • Because it's weird science.
  • Also, when they try to create another woman but end up creating the missile instead, isn't it kind of strange that the lightning happened to strike at the exact same moment? Just cause Lightning Can Do Anything doesn't mean it will strike whenever they "hack" into that mainframe.
    • I don't think you were watching this movie in the right frame of mind, man.
