Factual error: In the airport scene where Garrett is leaving San Francisco after visiting his girlfriend Erin, they're at the Southwest Airlines counter. He's just checked in for his flight and they're starting to say their goodbyes. He makes a quick comment complaining about getting a middle seat. Southwest has an "open seating" plan where passengers can choose where they sit once they board. So it's a mistake that he would have gotten an assigned seat.Cal K.
Factual error: In the scene when they are leaving the Pittsburgh Zoo, the sign indicates to turn right for Interstate 79. However Intestate 79 is about 15 miles to the west of the zoo. Also, it is suggested that Interstate 79 is the turnpike (a tolled road), when actually Interstate 76 is the turnpike and Interstate 79 is not tolled.
Factual error: Towards the end of the movie where they finally can get on the bus the bus scene has two mistakes. One is that it travels ilegally on the right hand side of the road at speed over some chevrons but more importantly as they are supposed to be in Tipperary, there is a bus stop sign which says "Dublin City Bus" which is a completely different bus service to the "Bus Eireann" service they get on.
Factual error: There's a scene where a woman's son and Kahn are playing on an Xbox. The movie was set around the time when 9/11 happened and the console was not even released at that time. You can tell from the controller they were using. It was white and had a battery underneath for wireless gaming.
Factual error: When Jamie Lee Curtis drops the earring down the drain, she panics and kicks the pea trap off the drain. This causes water to spew from the pipes which is possible if she accidentally kicked the water pipe but when she replaces the pea trap by hand, the water cuts off which would not happen, as the drain has nothing to do with running water.Cinderdan
Factual error: A fire breaks out in the hospital due to one of Abby's victims being exposed to sunlight as she's turning into a vampire, destroying that vampire and a burning a nurse to death. Modern hospitals have fire sprinklers, fire extinguishers, etc. and sensors/alarms that the fire would have activated.Erik M.
Factual error: Sailing ships in harbor always have their sails furled and stowed, not set. All the ships in the city's harbor have their sails set. Would never happen.
Factual error: Close to the end of the film Michael Reed is traveling from Philadelphia to New York City by train early in the morning. The sun shines on his face from left side which is impossible in the morning, as the left side of his face faces west during that direction of travel (from south to north).okul4705
Factual error: When they land back at the airport you see the door open and hear the sound of the engines. However at the rear of the left engine you see the engine cover (red flag moving in the wind) still in place. The engine cover still on while the engine is running could cause serious damage or it would be blown out. It would be removed during preparation checks.Maverick2805
