Clockstoppers

Revealing mistake: Just after Zak realizes the power of his watch, he and Francesca ride off into the town square and pass a Los Angeles transit bus. In the same town later that evening, as Zak and Doppler are being pursued by the evil operatives, they disengage the hyper-time, and just barely miss a head on collision with a New York MTA bus. (00:33:15 - 00:48:55)

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?

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.

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.
