Waterworld

Kevin Costner rescues the girl from Dennis Hopper's oil tanker lair. Hopper dies shortly afterward when his jet-ski collides with two other smokers' jet-skis. The group find Dry Land and settle there, but Costner goes back to the sea. What's good about the ending, though, is that dry land is the top of Mount Everest. Therefore, by leaving, Costner will not find any other dry land.

Revealing mistake: Right before the Smokers show up, you can see land on the left hand side of the screen.

Helen: You've been there, haven't you? Dryland? You know where it is.
Mariner: Yeah, I know where it is.
Helen: And uh, and we're going?
Mariner: You and I are. The kid we gotta pitch over the side.
Helen: What?
Mariner: My boat's tore up. I'm taking on water. [Points to filtration system.] I'd be lucky to get half a hydro ration out of that.
Helen: You know, I said I won't drink.
Mariner: For twelve days? [Helen nods.] No. It's better that one of you dies now, than both of you die slow.
Helen: Wait. Wait. We saved your life. We got you out.
Mariner: No. You got me out so you could get out. We're even.

Question: Where did the bad guys get the cigarettes, paper, beer, gasoline, and water. All of the guys said they've never seen land, so how did they get this stuff?

Answer: Sealed stuff floats. They gather stuff just like the mariner.

Answer: Well the Black Death cigarettes and the smeat cans were both sealed items so they theoretically were waterproof. The gasoline was refined from oil which was leftover in the Exxon Valdez and the water was purified from sources? Just like how the mariner purifies his pee. I mean if you can believe he can purify his pee on the trimaran then I'm sure the crew of the Valdez is capable of purification.

Answer: These points have been brought up ever since this movie came out. I guess you have to suspend a lot of disbelief!
