** Also, InsistentTerminology. "Coca-Cola" is said repeatedly, never just "Coke" or "soda", etc.



* SuitWithVestedInterests: The Mayor, who also owns the local hotel, refuses to take reasonable measures to protect locals and tourists from the dangerous animal in the woods. His idea of dealing with the issue is giving Paul's father a 24-hour deadline to catch the animal, and threatening to have him fired if he doesn't comply - which hinders the rangers' efforts, since they have to call off the search to drive into town and get their asses chewed (while the Mayor orders them to do something they were already trying to do), then drive back to the park to pick up the now-cold trail.

Added DiffLines:

* FreeRangeChildren: Paul not only hitchhikes cross-country to reach his father, the trucker who picks him up does not instantly call the police, nor does Paul's dad ask how he arrived, and the school seems not to have called him.


* TooDumbToLive: Paul. Oh boy howdy. Throughout the movie, he makes some reckless decisions that get him in trouble almost every time.


* ProductPlacement: Coca-Cola gets quite a few mentions and Bigfoot's cave is littered with empty cans of the stuff. Also, the prominent Hunt's brand ketchup bottle on the table in Morgan's first scene.

* ArtisticLicenseAnimalCare: Giving human food to wild animals and treating orphaned animal cubs as pets are strictly prohibited in most nature parks, as they cause animals to lose their fear of humans and raid local towns looking for food. As the son of a park ranger, Paul should know this. Hell, on top of this, his father, the park ranger, should know this, but gave Paul two racoon kits!

** All the animals Helen is taking care of at her cabin are kept in tiny cages that are barely big enough to house the animals in them, much less allow them to move around. They have no access to food, water, or shelter, and the cages are vary obviously not even secured to the ground. And the one the eagle gets put in is just a couple of temporary fence panels with a perch, there's not even a roof for the one animal shown that can fly!

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: Will and Jim constantly walk around with their fingers on the trigger of their guns, and wave them around with abandon. Even assuming these are tranquilizers, this is dangerous behavior and anyone experienced with firearms would know better.


* SuitWithVestedInterests: The Mayor, who also owns the local hotel, refuses to take reasonable measures to protect locals and tourists from the dangerous animal in the woods. His idea of dealing with the issue is giving Paul's father a 24-hour deadline to catch the animal, and threatening to have him fired if he doesn't comply - which hinders the rangers' efforts, since they have to call off the search to drive into town and get their asses chewed )while the Mayor orders them to do something they were already trying to do), then drive back to the park to pick up the now-cold trail.
