Factual error: Towards the end of the movie, there's a drum of liquid with the number 4 on it. Number 4 is only on solids, not liquid flammables.

Character mistake: In the part after the premonition when everyone runs out of the speedway, Cynthia Daniels yells "Andy" to her husband, when her husband's name is Carter.

Revealing mistake: In the hospital scene when the nurse is filling the tub for the patient in the room above the cowboy's, he leaves the water on. When the water starts to come out of the tub it is coming out many times faster than it is going in.

Suggested correction: Nonsense. Not all can be put out with water, some can.

If you did research on fires you will see that putting water on chemical fires makes it spread. Gasoline and oil float to the surface of the water and continue to burn.

Revealing mistake: "Death" sets up Hunt's demise by activating the pool's purge pump and running it at maximum (so powerful it can suck the internal organs out of a person). The purge pump runs for several minutes before Hunt drops his coin into the water and goes after it. Despite the purge pump running at maximum all that time there is no change whatsoever in the pool's water level.

Other mistake: Near the end of the film Bobby Campo uses a long piece of wood to set off the sprinkler and put out the fire. This small flame activates the sprinkler, which wasn't activated by the huge pile of burning sawdust and chemicals.

Continuity mistake: During the pool sequence, we see a few shots of the pressure gauge, some close-up, some wider. In some some shots the scale goes up to 160, in others it only goes to 100.

Continuity mistake: When Hunt is about to leave, right before he says he'll check on Janet, the back of his shirt is tucked in, but as he exits his shirt is no longer tucked in.

Revealing mistake: When George and Nick are walking across the street from the hospital where the "guy in the cowboy hat" is recovering, you can see that there was a green screen being used. As they are walking across the street, they seem to be a different shade than the background and a couple seconds later, George is hit by the ambulance.

Continuity mistake: When Janet gets to the car wash, the sunroof is closed. Minutes later she is seen closing it.

Other mistake: In the scene were Lori, Nick, and George are all congratulating themselves at cheating death right after George tried to kill himself. When they pour the cider into the glass, just watch the amount of cider in George's glass it constantly changes.

Continuity mistake: During the last vision, Nick is seen driving in front of a bus however when the events take place the bus is nowhere to be seen.

Visible crew/equipment: In the hair salon if you look into the mirror on the left as the camera moves, you can see the camera in shot.

Revealing mistake: When Nick has his arm nailed to the wall behind the cinema screen, he sets off the sprinklers to put out the fire. After this he sits back down again, at which point his "nailed" arm and hand move slightly (an inch or two). This would not be possible under the circumstances.

Plot hole: Throughout the franchise we are taught that when someone intervenes in death's plan that person is skipped until it circles back around for another attempt. However in Janet's case she is skipped by intervention at the car wash but is killed at the movies before the pattern is complete had the last vision unfolded as normal.

Revealing mistake: In the first shot of the custom car shop, a nozzle can briefly be seen spraying showers of sparks (supposedly from welding).

George Lanter: I've been trying to kill myself all day!

Trivia: In the end scene (right before the lead characters go into the cafe shop) you can see a bus drive past with the number 180 printed across the top. The number 180 was a significant number in the first three Final Destination films.

More trivia for The Final Destination

Question: I think I have missed something, but I believe, the deaths in the movie are all wrong. First of all, in the first premonition, the cowboy dies BEFORE hunt and Janet, but later in the movie he dies after them. Secondly, how can the cowboy survive if he was in the thing that was SUPPOSED to kill him? Thirdly, in the premonition, a car explosion kills George and Lori, but when Nick falls back and gets impaled, he isn't burned. Lastly,during the mall scene, before the premonition, Nick reaches the theater too late to save Janet, and she dies, but George was the last person who died, and Lori was after George. It should have gone to Lori, then Nick, THEN Janet. Can someone please explain this or tell me if I'm wrong?

Chosen answer: 1. The cowboy almost died in the original accident (hence, he ended up in the hospital) and thus death moved on to Hunt & Janet.2. The cowboy would have died as he did in the premonition, but the only reason he died like that is because Nick asked him to move (in the vision) which he didn't do in real life.3. Nick was close enough to be pushed backward by the pressure wave, but not close enough to be burned.4. *shrugs* mistake maybe?

Deedge

Answer: I believe that in order for Janet to fully skip her turn, Hunt and Janet would have to both be saved and since Hunt died, Janet didn't really skip her turn and death threw her randomly into the list.

Answer: Janet never died before the premonition, most likely case scenario would be that since both Lori and Janet were at the theater death would be more likely to "kill to birds with one stone" which would mean that he wouldn't care about the order. Death would just want to get it done. Same scenario for Nick, Janet and Lori's deaths at the cafe, and Ashley and Ashlyn's deaths from FD3.
