Corrected entry: In the premonition car crash sequence Kimberley's blonde friend can be seen momentarily with her head outside the red van (through a sun-roof or window). The van then flips on that side squashing her head, cut to an interior shot and the blonde is a bit bloody but still alive and conscious.

Correction: I'm pretty sure that it is not her head that is out the sunroof. It is only her hair that is out.

Corrected entry: When the lottery winner gets his hand and watch stuck in the disposal, he finally pulls out his hand without the watch. Yet when he's climbing down the fire escape, he's wearing it again.

Correction: It was his ring he dropped down the waste grinder, not his watch. He had the watch on the whole time.


Corrected entry: On the DVD. In the scene where Clear Rivers opens the hospital room door and gets incinerated, her face and skin were completely melted. But notice that when the body hits the floor, the leather jacket is virtually unburned. Wouldn't it have melted even before her skin would?

Correction: Going on the assumption that Clear is not a victim of tanning beds and does not have leather skin, the reason her skin melted away so fast is because human cells are primarily water which would have evaporated quickly in such fiery heat. Leather, on the other hand is almost completely dehydrated which would keep it from burning quickly (that is why welders and foundry workers use leather aprons, gloves,etc.)


Corrected entry: Final Destination ends one year after the plane crashed. That is the same day the second movie begins. But at the end of the first movie, there are still two people alive. So the second died between the two movies, when? If this isn't convincing: one of the victims, Rory, witnessed the death of the last victim shown in the first movie. How could he be in two places at the same time?

Correction: The first Final Destination actually ended six months after the plane crash, hence the subtitle " 6 MONTHS LATER" in the last scene in Paris. This gives Alex from the first film a further six months to die before the start of the second. It is actually mentioned in the film that Alex died 3 months after the Paris incident.

Corrected entry: If Death was working backwards through the order people would have died, Clear should have been last on the list to die, as she was the one who defied death first.

Correction: Clear was on the list of people who were supposed to die on Flight 180, the others were on the list for the Highway 180 pile-up. Two different lists, two different orders, and since Clear is the only survivor from list one she can be killed any time.


Corrected entry: In the scene where Kimberley has the premonition about the road crash, she had been driving on the highway for a while before the truck with the logs passed her, then subsequently crashed. However, back in reality, the log truck passed and crashed virtually right in front of them - within yards of the junction. If they had actually driven onto the highway when the lights turned green, they would have been miles ahead of the crash scene. (01:25:56)

Correction: In Kimberly's vision she pulls out in front of the truck and causes it to slow down, probably delaying the accident by a few minutes. In real life she never cut in front of it, meaning it never slowed down, so the accident happened much sooner.


Corrected entry: During the news report that is on in Eugene's hospital room, the anchorwoman says that the pipe that killed Kat was metal, but it wasn't - it was plastic.

Correction: Many times a newsroom has mis-reported an incident. Other times two news stations may report different accounts of the same story.


Corrected entry: When the rescue crew is using the jaws of life to get the one girl out of the car, wouldn't it be standard procedure to disable the air bag? Or at the very least remove the 12 inch spike right behind her head?

Correction: It may be standard procedure, but not everyone follows standard procedure to the letter. Since the airbag wasn't released in the accident, the rescue worker may have assumed there wasn't any.

Corrected entry: Clear is very pale, from not being outside in several months. When we first see her yet she magically gets some color by the time she reaches Kim's house.

Correction: Ever heard of make-up?

Correction: Considering Clear has been locked up in a mental institution with nothing but her bed I highly doubt she put make up on.


Corrected entry: When Rory gets cut into thirds, in the background you can faintly hear someone cheer and say beautiful, perhaps because the stunt went so well.

Correction: The "cheering" sound is actually the firemen and rescue personnel yelling amongst themselves as they scramble in the background.

Corrected entry: In the beginning when Kimberly is driving she passes a car with a kid and a father in. Look at the kid, he is playing with two toys, a red SUV and a dirty truck. He is holding them up and banging them together. Kimberly is driving a red SUV and it's a dirty great truck that causes the accident.


Correction: This is hardly trivia. It is a crucial point of the plot that pertains to her premonition. The audience is supposed to get this the first time, and most, if not all, do notice this right off.


Corrected entry: On the website about the survivors of flight 180, it states that Alex was nineteen at the time of his death, yet in the beginning of the original film, his father says he is seventeen. How did he manage this when only one year has passed? The events of Final Destination 2 take place on the one year anniversary of the plane crash, Carter was killed a little over 7 months after the plane crash, not one year, and Alex dies somewhere in between. Even if Alex turned 18 the day after we see his dad saying that he's 17 he still couldn't possibly have turned 19 before his death.

Correction: Seeing that the source is only a website, it likely that website simply messed-up Alex's age.

Corrected entry: The part where Eugene is nearly killed by the kayak makes no sense. We know he was never meant to die, given the events with the gun a few minutes later, yet he is only saved by Claire pulling him away at the last second. There is no way that Death could have known that Claire would have intervened, and it's safe to day that Death can't control spontaneous human reactions - if it could then it'd make people throw themselves off buildings, slit their own wrists etc. Even if he was meant to die, then surely after this escape he should have gone behind Kimberly in the list order. And even if Eugene was never meant to be hit by the kayak in the first place, and Claire was always meant to save his life, then why did Death bother in the first place?

Correction: No. He doesn't die by the gun because he was lower on the list, but then his time is supposed to have come and the kayak is about to kill him. Death doesn't know Clear would save him and cannot control humans in any way.

Corrected entry: When the people in the SUV are talking about how they cheated death before the one woman talks about the bus she was on hit some girl on the road. Later Clear says that girl was Terry Chaney (from FD1) but the bus that hit Terry was empty. (01:03:35)

Correction: If you frame by frame the sequence you can faintly see outlines of the passengers on the bus.

Correction: This isn't a valid correction if you have to view frame by frame to see something.


Other way around - mistakes that can only be caught in slow motion aren't valid, but if something seems like a mistake, but closer examination at slow mo proves it isn't, that's a valid way of correcting something.

Corrected entry: Timmy's mom comes into his bedroom and gives him his medicine tablet to swallow. If you watch his hand, he pinches the tablet and seems to put it in his mouth. When he drops his hand, though, you notice that he is pinching his finger and thumb down; most likely he is still holding the tablet, which has never been swallowed.

Correction: Not a movie mistake, rather normal behavior of teenagers. Many times I've dumped medicine down the sink or just pretended to take it.


Corrected entry: Modern airbags, when activated, deflate almost instantly after impact, unlike what's seen in the car wreck scene.

Correction: It was an older model of car, obviously.

Corrected entry: Clear Rivers has had herself committed and is now afraid that death will get her. She does not allow anything in the room that may harm her. She obviously doesn't mind a television with its high vacuum tube and high voltage circuitry. One spark and that padding she finds so comforting will go up in smoke. Then the tube explodes, splattering her head on the rear wall. More unbelievable things have happened.

Correction: She is hoping that if something that odd does happen, then the signs will be so obvious that she will have time to get out of the room; remember, all of the people on Death's list can notice signs.

Corrected entry: The scene where the chain snaps and makes the logs fall off the semi-trailer isn't consistent with real loads. Normally on a flat bed trailer there are 8 chains along with side rails to prevent a spill. Also the weight of those logs would have been on a semi-trailer with an extra set of wheel assemblies. Bottom line, one chain snapping would not have made the logs fall off. Plus log trailers do not rely on chains alone to hold the logs on. There are poles made of 4" box tubing on the sides of the trailer.

Correction: Two things: one, the logs falling originally didn't have a certain kind of "bounce" to them and this was changed in effects; second, Death can change anything to make sure that somebody dies, since it always intervenes. Added to that, since when are people always do their jobs properly? My dad complains about how he's the only one to do so at his job; people can be lazy/stupid you know, as evidenced by Kimberly's friends not wearing their seat belts.

Correction: The point is that the vehicles on the road are driving dangerously- everyone else on the road is breaking the rules/law

Corrected entry: When Timmy is choking on a plastic fish at the dentists', he is unable to remove it as the Nitrous Oxide stops him from being able to move properly. However, when the nurse comes in an removes the fish, Timmy gasps, sits up a little bit and very quickly moves his hand from his chest to his side. What happened to the paralysis?

Correction: Death probably kept his hand from moving (much like the bullets in the gun when the guy tried to shoot himself), and when the nurse saved him he was able to move freely since he couldnt die that way anymore.

Corrected entry: When Kimberly is talking to her Dad outside her house in the first scene, the extra doing yard work in the is raking one minute, clipping hedges the next and then raking again as Kimberly drives away. The time lapses between shots aren't long enough for him to go and get a clippers or rake (neither are visible on the ground or nearby while the other is in use).


Correction: In the first shot, the extra is raking the leaves back and notices a branch of leaves sticking out from the hedge, then drops the rake and bends over, most likely to pick up the hedge clippers. The extra actually continues clipping the hedges, even when Kimberly is driving away.

Factual error: When Kat is driving the survivors and they crash into the field, they slow to a stop while spinning - there is no way the car would travel backwards with the speed that it appears to in the next shot.

Kimberly Corman: If Clear was right, that means Nora and Tim are going to be killed by pigeons!

Trivia: At the beginning of the movie, notice when the camera is scanning over all of Kimberley's belongings on her desk, there is a book that says 'Road Trip' with a keychain over the T, making it 'Road rip'.

Question: In the dentist office scene, Tim almost chokes to death when the toy puffer fish falls into his mouth, but the nurse saves him by pulling it out. Nora should be next, but Tim gets crushed by the glass pane anyway. This is a major mistake on death's list.


Chosen answer: No it simply means that Tim was not supposed to die by the puffer fish. He was meant to be saved so that he could die later. The movie shows multiple instances where someone almost dies, but at the last second is saved. It's a common way to build suspense.
