Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Plot holes 

Dickie, Sam, and Sally's entire night escapade in the tree house is revealed to be a dream of Dickie's after they encounter a spider. However, this means that the scene with Dickie eating dinner with the family, in which they suggest he stay in the tree house, would also have to have been part of the dream. Therefore, it is an oddly long dream sequence that erases much of the plot development and explanation of why the family grew to accept Dickie.
