Continuity mistake: When the boulder is coming down, the front door is open. When we get a shot of the front of the cabin, the door is now closed. However, the doorknob switches from being on the left to being on the right. We also see there is nothing hanging from the porch roof. Before Mike and Steve crash through, we see the front again and the doorknob is back to the left and there's a metal star hanging from the porch roof.Bishop73
Continuity mistake: When the boulder hits the cabin and Mike falls out the front door, he's rolling, almost off the door, and on his side, with his back close to the rocks. There also is nothing on the back of the door. When it cuts to the close up, Mike is now face down on the door completely, with a dartboard on the door.Bishop73
Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, while at the Governor's mansion, Drake Savage (played by Gary Busey) is in a tree with a rocket launcher. He jumps out of the tree and lands without the rocket launcher. In the next scene, he jumps onto the stage and he has the rocket launcher, which he left in the tree.
Continuity mistake: When Mike is playing football on the field, he scores a touchdown, and throws the football down. Then it cuts away to the kids complaining, then back to Mike, and the lost football is in his hand. It cuts to a larger view of the scene, and where's the football? The camera cuts away again, and then back to Mike and his team. The football is once again in Mike's hand.
Continuity mistake: When Governor Tracy is chopping down the tree, we see the pre-made cuts (that are suppose to be there). After her 2nd chop the shot changes to her family, but when it goes back to her, there's a new notch in the tree and it's not from her chopping as we don't hear her chopping. When it cuts to the tree the final time, after she says "don't let anyone tell you your job is easy", there are more chop marks that aren't from her.Bishop73
Continuity mistake: When the cabin was struck by the boulder it was tilted downwards making Steve and Mike fall out the front window and door. As Steve and Mike were leaving to go watch the debate at Drake's bus, both guys walked uphill to leave by the front door.
Continuity mistake: When Drake sneaks up on Steve while he is urinating on the tree, he turns Steve around, and as happens in many films when someone is interrupted while urinating, his genitals are magically back in his pants. You can then hear Steve urinate on the ground a couple times as Drake continues to intimidate him, which wouldn't be possible if his genitals were back in his pants.Phaneron
