*** A quick calculation can confirm that travelling 560 lightyears in 2.2 hours means travelling at a velocity of approximately 2.23 MILLION times the speed of light. That's faster than [[StarTrek warp factor 9.9999]]...

** Close to the speed of light? If he's traveled 560 Light-years in 2.2 hours, it's safe to assume he rather EXCEEDED the speed of light. And how!

* DarkerAndEdgier: Somewhat, compared to other Disney movies (live-action or animated). The Freemans are somewhat (but not completely) dysfunctional, and the NASA scientists (at least from David's point of view) only really see him as a test subject, among other things. Oh yeah, and despite the PG rating, there's also at least two instances of PG-13 / R rated swearing (which were thankfully removed from its broadcasts on The Disney Channel).[[note]]That said, it should be noted that Disney technically didn't make this movie. They merely distributed it on another company (the aforementioned PSO)'s behalf - and outside North America it's not even released by Disney![[/note]]

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: When the ship travels 20 miles straight up, David floats up to the ceiling as if in microgravity. In reality, at 20 miles up the Earth's gravity is pretty much just as strong as on the surface (astronauts float because they ''are'' falling along with the ship or space station around -- it's just that they are traveling sideways fast enough that the Earth curves away beneath them so they never end up hitting the ground).

Though this is probably ignored for RuleOfFunny.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Before David was abducted, he was watching a girl he likes through his telescope. She wasn't brought up again, even after he reappeared 8 years later.

* TheyWouldCutYouUp: Not ''literally'', but Max realizes he would never be able to live a normal life if he stays in the 80's with the government hounding him, and risks being vaporized to go back.
