Clockstoppers

Factual error: In the DJ spin-off scene, Zach and Francessca help make Meeker cool by going into hypertime and giving him a dance lesson. At one point, we see Zach and Francessca in hypertime making Meeker do flips. Then, in real time, we see that Meeker is doing the flips at the same speed that he was doing in hypertime. Wouldn't he be going a lot faster in real time, not the same speed as he was in hypertime?

Factual error: At the end Zak enters double hypertime. He cannot touch the table and can walk through the wall because his molecules are moving so much faster than the molecules of the solids. If this were true, the solid floor molecules would not be able to hold him and he would fall under. Where he would stop, I don't know.

Other mistake: After Zak and Francesca get through the giant fan, Zak unscrews the vent cover and it drops like a rock, but as the camera pans out you can see that everyone is still frozen. So, wouldn't that mean that the cover is supposed to look like it dangles in mid-air and be in normal time? (01:13:54)

Trivia: Jonathan Frakes (the director) makes a QUICK cameo. When they are at the science fair working behind the curtain, notice Jonathan Frakes sitting at the table/booth when Zach moves across the screen.

Question: In the scene where the hypertime QT agents are in Zak's house, one of them gets sprayed with liquid nitrogen, bringing him down to normal time. But, if he is in normal time, wouldn't Zak's mom and sister see him? Don't you think they would call the police after seeing a stranger in their house?

Chosen answer: Probably, but it's not essential to the plot so there's no reason to show it.

Knever

Answer: These are top agent like figures who likely don't want many people knowing what's going on. Those still in hypertime probably carried the normal-time agent out of the building before Zak's mom found him.
