Continuity mistake: When Norman and Harry are talking in the dorm after they hear of the storm coming, Harry is lying down in the bunk telling Norman how they are going to die. There is a shot of Harry's leg at the end of the bunk, then Harry sits up against the wall and in the next shot his leg is still at the end of the bunk, but wouldn't it have moved back when he sat up against the wall?
Plot hole: The first time they communicate with the "entity" in the spaceship, they find a correspondence between numbers sent by the entity and letters of the alphabet. The entity presents itself as "Jerry". Later on, the entity tells Dustin Hoffman, "Stop calling me Jerry" - and then Dustin Hoffman realizes that the number-letter correspondence was wrong, and the actual name of the entity was "Harry". But if that is true, how could they have communicated without problems before? The very first word that the entity used was "hello", which would have to be displayed wrong, since it begins with an "h" and has an "e".
