Factual error: Mr. Dawes Jr. states that the tuppence (two pence) invested by Michael grew into enough to pay off the mortgage on the house. Interest rates over that 20 year time period were about 4%, which would have made that 2p grow to all of 4p. Go nuts and assume an impossibly high return of 15% per annum, compound, consistent over the twenty years. Despite the fact that not even Bernie Madoff offered ridiculously high returns like that, after twenty years the original two pence investment would be worth 39p. As an aside, houses of the time cost about £750, far below current London prices, but still considerably more than 39p.wizard_of_gore

Plot hole: When Mr. Jeffries finds out that Evan is named August Rush too, he goes to the Central Park concert and sees Evan onstage, however he couldn't know that Evan was having a concert, or even that Evan was at that place at that time.

Corrected entry: Jim somehow plants a small live tree of about 15 feet in height on the ship's Grand Concourse, meaning that he must have constructed a large container of soil (with irrigation) beneath the bulkhead to accommodate the tree's rootball. This is perhaps feasible, given that Jim is a mechanical engineer, and we see his schematic of the root container drawn on the concourse deck. However, at the end of the film, some 88 years after Jim planted the small tree, the ship's actual crew emerges from hibernation to find a tree of truly gigantic proportions growing on the concourse deck. The tree has easily grown to 70 or more feet in height, which would require an approximately equal amount of space below the bulkhead to accommodate its massive root system. Even if Jim somehow continued expanding the root container to the size of a 7-story building below deck, it's unlikely that he could fill it with millions of pounds of garden soil.

Corrected entry: At the end, Jim tells Aurora that the medical diagnostic and treatment unit "AutoDoc" can place her back into a state of hibernation so that she can complete the journey to Homestead II. She immediately objects, saying, "But there's only one AutoDoc!" (i.e., saying she won't do it if it means leaving Jim behind). Really? Only one AutoDoc unit on a half-mile-long starship with over 5,000 passengers and crewmen? Stupidity.Charles Austin Miller

Corrected entry: When the ship temporarily loses all gravity, Aurora, who is swimming, is lifted out of the pool along with the water. Jim is sleeping in his cabin, and he and other objects float into the air. Gus, who is also sleeping in his bed, only has his arms lifted up. His body and the blanket stay completely stationary. He is not strapped into the bed, nor is the blanket tightly wrapped to the bed. When gravity is restored, his arms flop back down.raywest
