This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Richard saw Henry and Dorf at the mall, they were wearing red t-shirts and ripped blue jeans at the knee, with Red/white chuck sneakers and they walked into a pizza restaurant. Aric turned him and Richard invisible so they couldn't see them. Richard saw Henry and Dorf at the mall they were wearing blue button shirts open with lite gray t-shirts under them and dark colored pants with red/white chuck sneakers. Instead of going to the pizza restaurant( like in the book) they eat foods from around the world in the food court.Aric turns him and restaurant invisible so they couldn't see them.
   Before Aric leaves he leaves Richard the cool new baseball jacket with cold letters he saw at the mall, as a reward for helping him defeat Dorf. Before Aric leaves he leaves Richard the action figure he wanted to add to his collection, as a reward for helping him defeat Dorf.
   Dorf suspects Richard is on to him, and know he's an alien. So he makes Richard's fingers bleed, and Richard has to go to the nurse and have his fingers all wrapped in band-aids. Dorf suspects Richard is on to him so he makes Richard feet be in pain and turn blue, and the next day he makes his hands turn blue. Richard has to end up wearing gloves to hide his blue hands til the end of the movie.
   At the pizza restaurant Dorf ate several Pizzas, and poured hot pepper flakes on all of them before he ate them. Henry ate a piece and got up running to the water fountain to get some water. Richard/Aric sat by Dorf( still invisible and watched eat the pizzas like crazy with the pepper flakes with no problem, that's how they found out the hot pepper flakes was the right food. In the foodcourt Dorf and Henry had the foodcourt table covered with all types of food from around the world. Plus while walking Richard has a hard time staying invisible since people working at the mall kept running into him. Henry and Dorf talks about Dorf's upcoming party and Henry says " Who need Richard" and Richard mash his face down in a bowl of mashed potatoes. Dorf don't eat the red pepper flakes in the movie, since none of the food he eats needs it. Richard bumps into another foodcourt worker and turn visible again, and knocked the red pepper flakes out his hand he was pouring in a shaker. A female foodcourt worker thought Aric was a toy when he fell out of Richard's vest. Aric then remembered red pepper flakes is the food to stop Dorf, when they got home later.
   There's nothing about Richard talking to any girls in the book. A couple of times in the movie Richard talks to Miriam, a girl he likes, who also likes Dorf.
