Big Trouble

Corrected entry: In the scene where the plane is in the air, the back stairs are down when the plane takes off. The camera zooms out showing the entire plane in the sky. You can see the back stairs are up. Next few scenes, stairs are down.

Correction: The stairs are down in every shot that we are able to see the plane's left side.

Super Grover

Corrected entry: In the scene where the fighter jets are following the plane with the bomb you can see the landing gear is down on both of the fighters. Fighter jets always raise their gear within seconds after takeoff.

Correction: This is not a mistake. Fighter aircraft must often fly "dirty" to keep pace with a much slower aircraft. Landing gear produces drag on the aircraft, slowing it down.

Corrected entry: Why is no-one concerned about a nuclear bomb going off in the sea? Surely it would wipe out all marine life for miles around, and make the area unfit for ships and cargo to sail through, and practically destroy all businesses in/around the harbour? That isn't even taking into account the nuclear fallout. (This is a valid mistake for the theatrical cut of the film, regardless of book, etc., discrepencies)

Correction: The yield of the bomb is never mentioned. From the shot of the suitcase falling towards the ocean, you can't see the harbor, we have no idea where it hit. It is not clear how far it sank before exploding. Their immediate concern was that it did not explode on land and kill people. Fallout would not be a concern for the police or the FBI on the scene. Those concerns would be covered by others not shown in the film.

Corrected entry: When they are in the plane that's flying with an open door, there is a light breeze, it seems, around the opening. However, that high up, it would create a strong sucking force, pulling everyone towards it.

Correction: I was in a plane similar to the one in the movie, cruising around 5000 feet (from Freeport to West Palm Beach), and the cabin door popped open. Some guy who had seen too many James Bond movies gave the passenger nearest the door a bear hug to keep him from getting sucked out, but it wasn't necessary. The sucking comes from the difference in air pressure and at 5000 feet there isn't that much. Not enough to pull people towards it.

Corrected entry: When Arthur finds out that the TV has been shot, he screams that it was a RCA 39 in. horizontal. But, later in the movie, Tim Allen (as the narrator) says that Arthur knew the bullet was meant for him and not Mr. Zenith. Two completely different TV's.

Correction: He says "the bullet that hit Xena" (as in Xena: Warrior Princess) not Zenith
