Final Destination 3

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ashley says that they've got CDs in the tanning salon you can see Ashlyn keeping a cream tube on the table with her right hand. In the next shot you see her continuing the same action with the left hand.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Kevin and Wendy are talking outside of the school, Kevin's hair change positions depending on the shot. At the same time, each time the shot goes back to Kevin, not only does his hair change, but the people behind him. It switches from Julie and Perry to random people, then back again.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the scene where Ashley and Ashlyn are burning in the tan beds, one of them looks out of the side of their tan bed. This is supposed to be Ashlyn, but she's facing the wrong way, which means she would have to be in the tanning bed she didn't get into to make this shot right.

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Wendy is looking at her camera and Julie walks in to ask if its ready yet, you can see Wendy holding the paper with Ashley's number on it. Then when Julie walks out, Wendy turns and sees the paper on her desk, no where near her hand.

Continuity mistake: When the coaster passes Wendy on the right side, her hair blows on the left side.

Suggested correction: The wind is in the movie always a sign that death will come. So the reason for lifting the hair should not necessarily be caused by the roller coaster, but caused by death arriving soon.

Continuity mistake: During Frankie's death, right after the shot of Wendy and Kevin escaping, there is a very quick shot where Frankie is not in his car.

Deliberate mistake: There are a number of things wrong with the roller coaster scene (besides the obvious impossibility of a crash like this actually occurring): 1) The restraints use ratchets to lock, not hydraulics. A coaster of this type wouldn't even have any hydraulic lines. 2) The attendants didn't check all the restraints. This is ALWAYS necessary, on ANY ride. 3) On any roller coaster, the Dispatch button (or "Start" in the movie) must be held down until the train is clear of the station. This is a safety feature to make sure the attendants are clear of the moving train. If the button is released before the train is clear of the station, it will stop. 4) At the bottom of the lift, the lift chain curves to follow the track into the station. This is impossible, a lift chain cannot curve horizontally, only vertically (normally at the top of the hill).

Kevin Fischer: What's wrong?
Wendy Christensen: It's nothing. It's just that I'm going to be worrying about you every second while you're gone.
Kevin Fischer: Why would you worry about me? We don't even like each other, remember?

Question: In the scene just before Erin dies, they are talking about if anyone else was on the ride and Ian makes a comment about a guy in a black cloak and how the ride attendant took his sickle, (or whatever), before the ride started. I know it's supposed to be a joke but what's a "sickle" and what did he mean by his comment?

Answer: A sickle is a harvesting tool with a crescent-shaped blade (with the sharp edge on the inside) as seen on the old USSR flag (along with a hammer). It's a reference to Death, who is most often seen dressed in black cloak with a scythe. On rare occasions Death has a sickle, but more often it's people confusing the two tools or thinking the words are synonymous. Plus, it's easier for some people to say "sickle" than "scythe." Ian is saying Death is on the ride.
