These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Fridge Brilliance: In reality the girls admitted that the photographs were fake (though Frances maintained that the fairy bath was genuine) but not that the fairies themselves were. The Brilliance comes in with the fact that the girls are never seen taking the photographs in the films. A reporter also finds cardboard cut-outs of fairies in Joseph's room.
Hilarious in Hindsight: At Frances's first day of school one of the children asks "if you're from Africa, why do you sound so English?". This is quite close to a famous quote from the movie Mean Girls where a new student from Africa is asked "so if you're from Africa, why are you white?".
