Corrected entry: In the scene where Bill, Jo and Melissa are in the Dodge Ram, it shows a shot of the tornado in the lake. For a brief moment before the shot changes, you can see another tornado in the right side of the screen. Seconds later, we see the tornado split into two, and Bill finally mentions "We've got sisters." Isn't it amazing that the tornado on the right goes completely unnoticed? (00:41:35)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Hunt and Paxton's crew drive onto a smaller side road surrounded by cornfields, Rabbit says he can't figure out what road they're on, and depreciatingly calls it "Bob's Road" as he scours his maps. However, in the forward shots, you can see they're actually driving on a paved road, complete with black-and-white highway signs.
Corrected entry: In many scenes, the red dodge truck doesn't have an antenna, but yet they are using the radio.
Corrected entry: The aluminum cans they use to make Dorothy fly are Pepsi cans. Later, when they see the twister pattern on the computer screen, very briefly it assumes the shape of a Pepsi logo. Hidden commercial?
Corrected entry: The first time we see the bad guy, his entourage is overtaking the good guys, yet in every other car scene the good guys have no trouble outrunning them.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, Hunt's adult father is sucked into the F5, but her TINY dog is safe just a few feet away.
Corrected entry: The team communicated via CB. How did the team hear Joe & Bill talk about her fathers death when they were standing in the rain, when no one was keying the mike in order to transmit?
Corrected entry: Why did they need to make those fans out of the aluminium cans to make the sensors fly? If things like trucks, cows and tractors can so easily be picked up and thrown around by a tornado then surely a little sensor can too? Maybe they needed the sponsorship from Pepsi?
Corrected entry: When Bill prepares Dorothy II, it takes him about a minute. When he prepares Dorothy IV, all he has to do is flip a switch and it takes him about 2 seconds.
Corrected entry: In the beginning when Jo and her parents are in the storm cellar, Jo's dad is trying to hold the door shut for dear life. Finally he gets sucked away by the tornado, leaving Jo and her mom sad and alone in the cellar, but completely unharmed nonetheless. Why was it such a priority to hold the door shut if nothing gets sucked out of there, and nothing is harmed in any way, when the door is gone?
Corrected entry: At the end, Bill and Jo decide to strap themselves to a pipe with belts. Any kind of weather expert would know that this is probably the most unsafe thing to do as they would obviously be shredded to pieces by debris. Perhaps the safest thing to do in this case would be to lie flat down under the pipes, arm and legs spread out.
Corrected entry: In the scene at the Drive-In movie, when they all get hit by the "F4," you will notice that almost their entire fleet, including the Ford Pickup, and the Ford station wagon, are totally trashed, yet a few scenes later, after they rescue Aunt Meg, on their way to dump the sensors into the remaining Dorothys, the entire fleet is present and accounted for. By the way, where was the Dodge Ram during that entire garage sequence?
Corrected entry: During the movie the actors use radios all the time. They talk to each other and others talk and everybody hears it over the radio like they are all plugged in to a single radio. If everybody talks at the same time over a radio channel from different transmitters all you would hear would be a lot of garbage from all the mixed signals. Jo and a few others wear radio headsets for 47 MHz radios and we can hear them over the CB radios in the vehicles on 27 MHz. If everyone is supposed to be able to hear each other over the radio, why does Jo always have to change the CB channel, wouldn't they all be on the same channel?
Corrected entry: When the red truck goes through the house, you can see chairs and other things standing up when the house is on its side.
Corrected entry: If Bill just bought a new red truck, why does it have a radio to talk to other people in other cars?
