Angels in the Outfield - Car Inconsistancy & Strange Baseball Schedule
Angels in the Outfield (1994, Danny Glover, Brenda Fricker)
Through the whole movie they make a big deal about how the young character "JP" doesn't ride in cars because he used to live in one (they take him places in a bus, van, etc.). Yet, in the end, his friend is sitting in the car, depressed, and JP sits next to him in the car to console him. [You could argue that this shows that cheering up his friend is more important than anything else].
The first three games shown in the movie take place on three consecutive days, yet on each day they are playing a different team on each day. This is impossible considering that back then they only played 3 or 4 game series with each team. The only way that that is possible is for the first game to be the end of a series, the third game is the beginning of a series, and the middle one is a make up game, the only way a make up game would be scheduled like that is if they ran out a regular games that could be converted into double headers, but as early in the season that it is, that is very unlikely.

Ok, it says he won't RIDE in a car, as in go anywhere in them. They weren't riding anywhere, he was just sitting there talking to his friend. It distinctly says in the movie that he only gets sick if the car is moving, though it's not worded exactly like that. Unless JP was planning on jumpin behind the wheel and takin the car for a cruise just so he could be sick, I don't see how this is a slip up. Also, the scheduling thing is completely irrelevant. How can they be expected to show every game? if they did that, the movie would have easily lasted about 4 hours!

I was involved in a hit-and-run accident back in 99, and after that I said I never would walk on the road by myself. But through some condolences through my friends and family, I walked by myself on the road again. In this movie, they are putting him in the car with people he is comfortable with, because they are probably helping him overcome his fear of cars!

The car incident was not a slip-up. That much is obvious. However, I have to agree about the scheduling glitch. If they wanted to show them playing three different teams, it shouldn't have been on three consecutive days!

This is hardly a slip up.
