Goofs

The final fireworks scene, although beautiful, is problematic. The fireworks caught on fire on the ground floor of a two story building. So they could not shoot out the top of the building like the scene shows, *unless* the 2nd story floor AND roof had burnt down - which obviously there is little fire. It would have been more realistic if the fireworks had been stored in a shed, and then they shot out of that shed. See more »
