I mean, I know it's not historically accurate if you take "first immigrants" literally as in the very first people to come here, but are you sure you're not just being a bit over-dramatic about one comment in a movie?
I dunno, maybe it's just me...
But when a movie tells me a character is genius-level smart I expect the character to be...you know, kinda sharp
AFAIK, MIT doesn't hand-out scholarships to someone with a poor education.
Accident: I remember him being in front of the car on the sidewalk on the side of the road corresponding to the side he was sitting on (the car being hit in the opposite corner. I don't remember if it was implied he went through the windshield. The car was obviously pushed back quite a bit, and it's certainly not unusual for people to be ejected from a car out the side door or window (especially given the angle of the impact on the opposite side of the car). Certainly plausible, but again nit-picky.
Did you notice the big HOLE in the windshield between the driver and the front passenger?
The kind of hole that's created when someone goes thru it?
Juvenile Records:Exact specifics vary from state to state, but generally juvenile records are not public, but in this case (underage drinker causing an accident), the victim's attorney can choose to petition the court for the information for civil liability purposes, but the victim can only view that petition, which doesn't contain any identifying info.
OK, now I'm confused...
Are you saying a juvenile can kill your family and you do not have the right to know who
Sorry, but I find that a little hard to believe...
Not saying the movie doesn't have flaws (because it does) but you seem to be picking out very minor things to complain about (heck, you didn't even get the cleaning thing was impromptu?)
No, I got that it was "impromptu."
My complaint is it SHOULDN'T have been.
Considering the girl had spent time in prison with a lot of time to ponder every possible thing about the accident and she was allegedly super-smart, and yet, she DIDN'T have an assortment of canned answers available should the guy actually answer
the door she is knocking on?
What about the major issue that he has a major hottie in his house and pretty much ignores her? What about that? Huh?
OK, now YOU'RE nitpicking.
