Revealing mistake: Near the beginning as the helicopter arrives to take the boy away, a man steps on a tumbleweed. The weed bends as he steps on it, and it is flat. It is a prop.

Trivia: The bees in the dome scene are real (there were about 30,000 of them). David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson were actually in the dome with them, and neither of them wore protective gear, but weren't stung nonetheless.

Question: I am a big X-files fan, but there is something in this movie that I think I may have missed in the series - can someone help me out? We are told in the series that Mulder doesn't drink. One time when he is getting drunk in a hotel room on his own, it is because of a strange planetary alignment and he himself finds it odd that he is drinking. My question is, when did he abandon this and start going out and drowning his sorrows on his own? I'm confused - maybe I missed the memo?

Answer: Mulder has just hit rock bottom and is questioning just about everything at this point, so drinking is not really out of character.
