Question: At the end of the movie, when they find out when Marek died, why does Kate say "...or 1971"?

Answer: Kate is actually saying, "Born 1971."

Question: Why is it that they aren't allowed to bring any modern weapons into the past? The grenade didn't seem to be affected. A simple air gun with tranquilizer darts would be enough just for protection.

Answer: Because you can never know what kind of influence the discovery of such a thing by the local people would have on any of those involved. The grenade was not supposed to get sent back, but since it exploded, not enough pieces are left for local people to wonder about them if ever they find some. That would not be the case for a full weapon.

Factual error: When Lord Oliver states who he is at war with, he also asks about the Spanish. The Spanish at the time were not unified, instead he probably would have referred to them as the Castilians or the Aragonese.

Trivia: Although the movie was almost a completely different story than the book, they did make reference to a scene in the book: when you see the guy in the beginning in the hospital, he has blood all over his face. The reason is because right before then he was talking about Quantum Foam and then went into convulsions, then started spewing up blood...gory, but a nice add in to let us know that the writers actually read the book.
