I've never seen these movies, so I'm just wondering: is there some law in this universe that keeps U.S. citizens from leaving the country? If there isn't, it seems pretty dumb for people who can afford to turn their homes into fortresses not to just go to Canada, Mexico or Europe for a few days while it happens. You can literally get on a plane the day before it begins, cross the Atlantic, spend the night in another country, take a flight back to the U.S. and the time limit will have expired

This sort of thing is being discussed on the Headscratchers page

Going by imdb and other evidence on this page, I've gathered that the Polite Leader is played by Rhys Wakefield, and that the Nostalgia Critic misattributed him as Henry, who is actually the boyfriend, thus implying that he was played by Tony Oller who played Henry.

I edited Large Ham to reflect this (and the NC quote in the quotes section that was made by me in the first place and drew me to the error).

A few notes I made: 1) The page describes the reason that James was mad at Charlie for letting the Stranger in was because he was being followed. This is never put forth in the film, and in fact the concern James expresses is that the man was directly a threat to his family. Which is why James is so willing to turn the Stranger over. Or am I misreading the situation?

2) The gang was either quite stupid to begin with or didn't plan to let anyone live. The reason I say this is because they cut the lights to the house almost immediately, making their target able to hide within the house for a longer period of time. This is further expressed when one realizes that James sold the most amount of the security systems his company provides, these would most directly be to his neighbors, that the gang had to be capable of walking/running the distance from their initial site to the house, and that they know the downfalls of the system meaning that they have experience with it. What does everyone else think?

Let's see if we can get to the bottom of these topics!
