* In both film versions and the Creator/StephenKing short story they plagiarize, simply keeping the monkey's cymbals from clashing is enough to stop its curse from taking a life. There's no guarantee the little bastard wouldn't get around it somehow, but why did nobody think to at least ''try'' blocking its cymbals with a ping-pong ball and some duct tape?

The Creator/StephenKing short story the movie plagiarizes did address this, unlike the film; the protagonist specifically mentions that he tried muffling the cymbals and it didn't work.

* When I first watched the episode of MysteryScienceTheater3000, I wondered why the spell turned Jonathan Cooper into a baby. Then I realized something: earlier in the episode, you could see that 5 drops of human blood were needed on the page where the youth spell was located. In his haste to get younger, he took ''way'' more than 5 drops from his wife, thus causing the spell to not work right. In the end, he suffered babyhood due to his inability to follow the directions.

** On the other hand, Madeline presumably found the handful of diamonds Johnathan created while he was messing around with the book and could use the money she got selling them to disappear... though that raises other questions, like how could she possibly pass those diamonds into the economy without raising a LOT of eyebrows?

** I think the actual explanation is that the protective amulet the psychic gave him stopped the monkey from killing him - the next scene has him take out the amulet and put it in a drawer, with the camera focusing on it and everything.

** Maybe if Jonathan wasn't such a colossal ass about everything, they'd have been happier to oblige.
