International Premieres


  • When Milo broke the big tank, he should have not been breathing before going to Freshwater High.
  • When Oscar said "We're holding hands," he was supposed to say fins, not hands.



  • Godzilla - The scene where Principal Stickler sends out the "secret army" to attack Milo.
  • Ghostbusters - When Milo outgrows and destroys the "big tank", and knocks over a navy hat and cape, he looks a lot like Stay Puft from the Ghostbusters franchise, and when Milo walks by the shelf of supplies, another allusion is made to the film itself, merely because he is entering the same way Stay Puft did in the film.
  • Forever Alone Meme - When Milo is trying to lift weights, the face he makes where he is crying is similar to the Forever Alone meme.
