Speed 2: Cruise Control

Other mistake: At the end when the plane hits the tanker, people shout "abandon ship" and next shot, a lifeboat full of people is halfway down the side of the ship. This would be impossible. (01:48:00)

Suggested correction: People manage to keep things in their pockets all the time after enduring a lot of different activities. This is in no way a mistake whatsoever.

Other mistake: Alex jumps from the deck to the stern and falls into the sea. The ship moves at a speed of about 15 knots, and there is no chance that in a few seconds Alex could climb back to the ship, because he would be at least 50 feet away. (01:26:55)

Other mistake: In more than one scene, Alex is normally talking to Drew although she's deaf. She wasn't looking at him while he was talking, so she couldn't have read his lips.

Factual error: You cannot walk into a ballast tank from the accommodation areas. The tanks are not painted white on the inside, and electric lights are not installed in ballasttanks. And finally, when filling ballasttanks, it is done through a pipe and a pump, not by opening gigantic doors in the ship's hull.

More quotes from Speed 2: Cruise Control

Question: Why did the first sail boat the ship hit explode? (01:38:20)

Answer: There is no logical reason for it and it is purely for cinematic theatrics. It's a movie myth that cars, boats, etc. immediately explode upon impact. In real life, explosions rarely happen that way.
