When Jimmy's sneaking out, the picture of the family is hanging on the wall, perfectly straight, halfway up the stairs and with three other pictures surrounding it. The next morning, it has moved to the top of the stairs, is slightly crooked, and the three pictures are gone. The next time it's seen, when Jimmy looks at the picture while walking up the stairs the next day, it's back in its original position and the three pictures are around it again.

When the kids first see their parents again they are circled around the giant hatching chicken. The camera cuts away and in the next shot where the chicken is visible, the parents are missing. They return a few shots later.

Plot holes 

While everyone is at Retroland having the time of their lives, Cindy Vortex is at home with her friend Libby practicing her Tai Chi while Libby is trying to pick out a new ring tone for her phone. There is no scene after that to suggest that Cindy & Libby left the house, so wouldn't they have been home at the time that Cindy's parents were abducted by aliens? Wouldn't they have heard Cindy's parents scream when they were being beamed up? Wouldn't they have saw the other spaceships going around to the other house from Cindy's bedroom window? Because later when everyone gathers at Jimmy's house to get answers about their parents' disappearance Cindy is argumentative about where her parents are and as far as we (the audience) know, she never left the house & was home at the time when her parents were taken.

Not to mention that later when Jimmy has Goddard do a full on scan of Retroville to scan for any signs of grown ups/parents anywhere within Retroville the scanners says no signs of parents/grown ups anywhere, yet there were possibly several grown ups present at Retroland with their children and those who were operating the rides. So if there are no more grown ups/parents anywhere in Retroville during the time when the kids were all out enjoying themselves at Retroland, then who were operating the rides since children aren't allowed to operate heavy machinery in case of explosion or accident causing harm or death.

Goddard was also present at home too when Jimmy's parents were taken. Why didn't he alert Jimmy? Why did he wait until he showed Jimmy the simulation of his parents saying goodnight to him? He could've told/alerted/notified Jimmy about the abduction way beforehand.
