Fridge: The Polar Express

Fridge Brilliance:

  • The train crew must have already known that the girl would take a cup back to the stowaway child - the hot chocolate crew is so good and precise at their job that there is enough for every child - even when the girl hides a cup under her seat, she still gets a cup without the dancers losing their pace or wondering where the extra cup went.

Fridge Horror:

  • One may wonder how Billy has failed to believe in Santa Claus all his life, not once ever received a present from him. But a child growing up and living in an abusive home is unlikely to have faith in anything.
    • It's never stated that his parents abuse him. Still, an impoverished life might still leave one with little to have faith in.
