Continuity mistake: When Grady and Earl wreck their truck, Earl picks up the radio mic to call anyone at their base site. He is talking into the back of the mic in two shots, then correctly in the next shot.


Continuity mistake: When Earl and Kate are talking (about her Playboy photo) while stuck on the roof, she is wearing her ring on her left hand (it was on her right earlier in the film). In the film's timeline, it is minutes later that the ring disappears.


Plot hole: When Earl, Grady, Burt and Kate are running from the truck that Burt shot, they go towards the cantina, which has a couple of smaller blue and white structures beside it. In a wide shot as they're running, we see the 1st shed at the side of the frame. A moment later Earl sees several walking Graboids in front of the 2nd shed. The beasts were in plain sight, yet nobody noticed until they were almost on top of them. (01:14:50)


Continuity mistake: When the walking Graboid takes Julio at the office, Kate tries to hide and knocks over a plastic container, which spills empty beer cans on the floor. Moments later, without having been touched, its position is a little different. (00:59:50)


Continuity mistake: When Kate moves the tray of core samples from the centre table, she puts it down on top of one other tray. When the camera pulls away, and for the rest of the scene, there are two trays under it. (00:16:15)


Visible crew/equipment: When Ortega introduces Kate to Earl and Grady, she turns from looking at Ortega to the others, and we can see the lighting rig reflected on her sunglasses.


Factual error: When Earl swings on the light fixture and the cable detaches from the ceiling due to his weight, he falls 'a little' before hitting the wall. He would have dropped like a stone immediately, and likely would not have reached the wall. (01:28:35)


Continuity mistake: When the Graboid scares Earl and Grady into backing up the truck over the ridge and getting it stuck, the hill they stop on is empty - that is, no rocks. But later, there's a big rock right next to its right side that Grady jumps onto. Also; when the truck first crashes, the angle makes the windshield roughly level with the ground. But subsequent scenes show the truck at a different angle. (00:42:20 - 00:47:35)


Factual error: When Grady and Earl are trying to sleep on a boulder, there's a very large moon in the sky. It's clear that it isn't the actual moon. None of the craters or other markings correspond.


Earl Bassett: You want to hunt graboids, you better know geology. You drive, I'm going to keep my eye on this seismojigger thing.

More quotes from Tremors 2

Trivia: Early in production, the film was reportedly intended to be a theatrical release as the first film became a huge hit on VHS and on cable. However, when original co-stars Kevin Bacon and Reba McEntire were unable to commit for various reasons, the budget was lowered and it became a direct-to-video feature. While this was initially disappointing, it paid off in the long run, as it launched a continuing franchise with a further five sequels and a popular (but short-lived) TV series.
