Corrected entry: In one scene Mel Gibson is in his bedroom with a bathrobe on and bare legs. He hears his children talking and walks into their bedroom, again with bare legs. He walks into their room and sits on the bed to read their book. When he sits on the bed, he still has the bathrobe on but now also has jeans on.
Corrected entry: When Graham Hess (Mel Gibson) goes to meet his family for pizza, he sits down and they all stare at Ray Reddy (Shyamalan, in the red truck). As the camera pulls back out of the doorway, you can see that his slice of pizza is half eaten already, although he couldn't have been eating as he was staring at Reddy as he arrived.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, when Mel Gibson's family is standing in the middle of the crop circle, the camera zooms out and it looks like there are acres and acres of corn neatly planted. However, in other shots during the movie, you can see a bunch of trees growing all through the fields that weren't shown at the the very beginning.
Corrected entry: When Bo says, "Morgan took a sip and it has his amoebas in it," if you watch the film with subtitles the word is spelled amebas, without the o.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the family are watching TV reports of other crop circles appearing around the world, the TV claims it's showing a picture of one in Wakefield, England. It is most unlikely that there would have been any crop circles in Wakefield, as there is very little arable farming near there. Most of the ones that did appear in real life in England were in the South.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the family is going down to the basement, Graham Hess goes down the stairs last. If you look behind him at the window at the top of the stairs, you can see the cutouts of the planets, stars, etc., and the window now only has a couple of boards on it.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, when the alien captures Morgan, he tries to kill him using his poison gas. You see the gas being sucked in Morgan's nostrils. However, later on, Graham says his son will be fine because his lungs were closed. If his lungs were closed, then no air could be sucked in, therefore the gas shouldn't have found its way in Morgan's body, as we see it being sucked in as if he was breathing.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, after Bo was attacked by the dog, the dog is lying on the ground, dead and bleeding from the knife wound. But the boy, who we are led to believe stabbed the dog and is right next to it, has on a white shirt with not a speck of blood or dirt on him. Surely some blood would have sprayed?
Corrected entry: When Morgan puts in the tape to record the news cast, he doesn't press record, or muck about doing anything you'd normally have to do when recording something.
Corrected entry: When Graham and his family leave the basement, they find the aliens have carved holes in the wooden doors etc. If they could do this why didn't they cut through the wooden door to the basement?
Corrected entry: When Graham wakes up from the couch, he follows the cord into the closet to find his brother watching TV in the closet. However, you can see there is only one cable running from the living room to the closet: the power cable. To watch TV, you have to have two cables; the power cable for the TV and a coax cable from the wall jack which comes from the antenna or satellite dish or whatever. And I seriously doubt that they would conveniently have a coax jack in the coat closet.
Corrected entry: When Graham first sees the crop circles, he tells Morgan and Bo that they were too perfect to have been made by humans, but the rest of the movie he tells everyone it's just geeks with no lives doing it.
Corrected entry: When Graham and his brother are nailing the doors shut against the aliens, they go into a room and pull the door shut behind them and then begin to nail boards over the door sill. This will not keep the aliens from opening the door and pushing the boards away from the sill. Not much protection here.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Graham, Merril, Bo and Morgan are eating the 'everything' dinner, in one shot, Bo's plate has half sauce and meatballs and the other half of the plate is noodles. A couple of shots later, her plate is again seen, but most of the noodles have been pushed back. She was to upset to be eating, so she wouldn't have moved them.
Corrected entry: The aliens are obviously very intelligent creatures - after all, they mastered space travel, and presumably travel at or near light speed, in order to get to Earth. Considering that exposure to water is deadly, why would such intelligent creatures choose a planet which is three-quarters covered by water?
