*** In-universe, a glass jar like that also serves a decorative purpose, meaning it can be left in a high-traffic part of the house for them to deposit some loose change as they happen to pass by it, without seeming out of place. This troper's family has kept a near-identical jar in their sitting room for the same purpose. Not only would a tin can or a piggy bank not nearly be large enough to contain the funds they need for the trip, but neither one is something that they could leave lying around somewhere. The ''real'' question is why they smashed the jar open with a hammer each time they needed the money for something, instead of just tipping it over and pouring the money out.

* Not a JustBugsMe, but a mere continuity error -- Russell calls Carl "Mr. Fredricksen", even though Carl never told him what his name was.

* Why did Russell need so many more badges than all the other kids to graduate to Senior Wilderness Explorer? At the beginning he shows Carl all his badges and tells him he needs one more in order to graduate, and he has a ridiculously large amount of badges. At the end of the movie, all the other kids graduating have, like, five or ten badges. Why show favoritism to everybody but Russell, Scout Master? Oh, let's pick on the fat kid. To hell with you! Russell's awesome. All those other kids can bite me! ... ItJustBugsMe.

* Why doesn't Russell get the Scout Badge of Honor/Heroism? I know it's the RuleOfFunny but it JustBugsMe still.

* My suspension of disbelief is pretty schizo- I can dismiss the flying houses and talking dogs and all of that stuff, but there's just one tiny thing that bothered me: when Carl was looking through the "Stuff I Want To Do" in Ellie's adventure book and seeing all the pictures from his life with Ellie... who took all those photos.

to:

*** There's also the fact that Russel is a kid and as a result, he wouldn't be able to think about the situation like that. As far as he can probably understand, Carl made a promise to protect Kevin but Kevin got caught.

** Hell, Betty White is 96 and she still seems fairly vibrant, and looks fantastic. Is it REALLY such a stretch that Muntz, in his late 80s/early 90s, would still be pretty spry himself? (And let's not forget, we ARE talking about a movie where a freaking ''house'' can fly by attaching a fuckton of balloons to it, and be easily steered.)

to:

*** No, he didn't get pulled out. Kevin barged past him and broke through the front window to get to the chocolate Carl was holding, knocking the gun out of Muntz's hands, and he proceeded to jump out of the window after her without realizing that he wouldn't make it back onto the airship.

***It's pretty difficult to take the money out of those jars, especially if you need a lot of it. Maybe they thought it was easier to just smash it and then replace it, it wouldn't cost more than a broken leg or a destroyed roof.

** Clearly, he must've tried. It just didn't work, obviously. As stated, trying to capture the bird alive and uninjured is probably much more difficult than just killing it, since it's too fast to capture easily ''without'' injuring it in some capacity.
