Other mistake: Every person in the movie has exactly the same make and model of computer with exactly the same desktop configuration on it. The number, type and order of icons is the same, as is the plain blue background. (00:30:50 - 00:31:40)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the spiders are starting to attack the city, it shows the guy in the barber shop closing up. He shuts the blinds then his friend gets attacked by the spiders, then he goes back out in front and the blinds are still open. (00:51:00)
Joshua's Parrot: I see dead people, I see dead people.
Joshua: He likes that movie, dunno why.
Trivia: The film originally featured the working title "Arac Attack." ("Arac" being a shortened version of "Arachnid", a class of animals that spiders belong to) However, following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and rising tensions in the Middle East, the original title was dropped in many countries because producers felt "Arac" sounded too similar to "Iraq", and they didn't want to have any social or political implications in the title. (However, the film was released with the original title in some territories).
Question: Do the spiders grow big because of the food that they are fed, or because of the chemicals spilled in the water?

Answer: Both! The owner of the spider farm was feeding the spiders bugs from the water that had the chemical spill in it. The bugs were contaminated with the chemical, thus contaminating the spiders. Note: The man who owned the spider farm had no idea about the contaminated water.
