Corrected entry: I still can't get over how stupid the aliens are in this movie. If they are an advanced race that can travel through space, why are they naked and unarmed in their invasion? You'd think some weapons, armor or tools would help.
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: Before the alien attacks Morgan in the basement, only Merrill and Graham have flashlights. Graham drops his flashlight as he goes to grab Morgan. Bo picks it up and shines it on Graham and Morgan, who are on the other side of the room; he then goes and sits with Merrill, putting both flashlights on the same side of the room. However, when Merrill says they should save the flashlights, one light turns off on either side of the room.
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: 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: In the TV news footage where the alien is first seen (children's birthday party), the setting is supposedly South America. However, the children at the party are speaking continental Portugese (from Portugal), not Brazilian Portugese.
Corrected entry: Graham Hess was a Catholic Priest before his wife was killed. Catholic Priests are not allowed to get married.
