* MissingTrailerScene:
** The film was [[NeverTrustATrailer marketed as a zany comedy]] and most trailers included a scene where the parrot flies next to another parrot and quips, "Saaay, do you realize we're both naked?" Again, it's never said in the movie.
** Another scene heavily run in the trailers had a scientist holding up a card for Paulie and saying "What is this?" Paulie responds "It's a flash card, you idiot!". It wasn't in the actual film.

* AbusiveParents: Marie's father, who argues with his wife in front of his daughter and gets angry when she can't say a word. He soon thinks his daughter, a [[DeliveryStork 5 years old mind you]], is getting mentally ill for saying Paulie was helping her. Then, he brings a cat home and doesn't want to believe it tried to kill a bird. Finally, he considers getting rid of Paulie, which is exactly what encouraged his daughter to teach Paulie to fly and fall off the roof.

* FreudianExcuse: It's established in the film that Marie's father acts the way he does is because he's a ShellShockedVeteran from serving in UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar.
