Factual error: In the final scene where the gas grill blows up, the arm that falls to the table in front of the mother is not from a teenager - it is nearly twice as large as the young man's arms (as previously seen in multiple scenes). Some people say it's a leg, but if that's so it's a bit odd having fingers on the right side of it...
Revealing mistake: When the officer is looking at the pictures of the Flight 180 survivors and their deaths afterward, notice that Todd is shown still struggling at the ropes and looking into the camera. Apparently the media thought it would be better to take a picture of Todd as he was committing "suicide". A similar incident occurs with the bus accident picture. The girl is obviously splattered in the first movie, but appears to have mostly leg damage in the pics.
Continuity mistake: When Evan comes into the flat and walks towards the window, pay attention to the sink, there is a red cup or something in it. However when his arm gets stuck in it, there is nothing red in the sink, and there was no time for him to take anything out of the sink.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning pileup, when the red SUV starts to flip, the front passenger wheel and suspension are ripped off and go off toward the front of the car. Yet, in the next shot, the car has all four wheels. After it shows the Trans Am going in the ditch, it shows the same shot of the wheel coming off from a different angle.
Visible crew/equipment: When the remaining characters are driving away following the van collision incident, Kimberly is seen to be having a second premonition involving the lake. As she is choking she lets go of the steering wheel, causing the car to swerve violently. In the shot where we see the car front-on, it looks like the cop character was actually a stunt driver in complete control of the van.
Continuity mistake: After Clear and Eugene's deaths Kimberley stares out at the lake and the white van outside the hospital, when Tom grabs her and says,'What are you talking about?', she looks over Tom's shoulder and she sees a newspaper report. You see it has two lines for the headline with a blue sheet of paper above it. In the next close up shot of the report it has one line for the headline and the blue paper is lower down.
Continuity mistake: When Kimberly is being revived, we are seeing blurry images of the doctor and eventually the heart monitor showing she's flat-lining. What we are seeing is what she is seeing, and since she's flat-lining she wouldn't be able to see anything. She also sees when her heart starts beating again, but when they go back to her, her eyes are closed.
Revealing mistake: When Nora's son gets killed, we can see the boy under the falling piece of glass. But in the shot where this piece is just about to smash him, you can see on the DVD edition that there is a dummy instead of him because his arms are too long relatively to the whole body and also the hands are obviously not human.
Visible crew/equipment: During the highway pile-up Rory's car barrel rolls in slow motion over an unmanned camera, during this shot you can see the cannon on the bottom of the car used to flip it. Then in the very next shot you see the car barrel roll from a different angle and the unmanned camera from the first shot is visible. It doesn't look like a typical camera, its disguised as debris, but it would not be there had the slow-mo shot not been filmed.
Continuity mistake: Sometime in the middle of FD1 Alex is walking to Clear's house and Clear says "It's almost Autumn." Alex replies "It's only the middle of June." which means that it must be June. But in FD2 when the main characters are in Kat's car talking about cheating death Kat says "Last May I was..." referring to being on the bus that killed Terry Chaney. It was only one day before Terry got hit by a bus when Alex went to Clear's house. So is it in May (like Kat said) or June (like Alex said)?
Revealing mistake: When Evan slips and falls on his back, you can see the 'ground' vibrates right when Evan's body hits it. With that amount of impact, a concrete ground wouldn't visibly vibrate like that. Of course the filmmaker wouldn't let the actor fall on something concrete for safety.
Deliberate mistake: When Kimberly is being revived, it's obvious that they are using a defibulator. But when Kimberly finally comes to and is covered by a sheet, you can see she has a bra on. This is impossible to have because you need direct contact with the skin in order for it to work. And the machine would start the heart working if it was lower on her chest.
Revealing mistake: When Kim's in the car explaining her premonition, she turns on the radio and the time is 8:24. When Officer Burke approaches the car, it's only a few minutes later. But later when Officer Burke, Kim, and Clear are checking the tape to identify Isabella's license plate, the time on the tape says 9:12.
Continuity mistake: When Kat is trapped in her car by the log, she pulls out a cigarette and starts smoking. When the worker tries to pry off the door, she says "Could you put it on quiet mode?" and turns away, her cigarette looks completely new. But then five seconds later after her airbag goes off and kills her, her hand drops to the side of the car, but her cigarette is considerably shorter (about half it's length) than it was five second ago. Surely she wasn't able to smoke it all in the amount of time that progressed?
Factual error: In the scene with the defibrillator it shows on the trace that her heart rhythm is asystole. Defibrillators only work with shockable rhythms i.e. VF (ventricular fibrilation) or pulseless VT (ventricular tachycardia). Using one on an asystolic patient would have no effect at all.
Continuity mistake: When the dentist starts operating Tim's teeth with the noisy device, the dentist's left hand (holding a dentist's mirror) is on the right side of Tim's face. In another shot, his left hand with the dentist's mirror is on the other side and the position keeps changing between shots.
Revealing mistake: When Tim runs into the pigeons and the glass falls: when it crushes him, you can see the arm bend backwards, same with his hand. When he gets snapped in half, the blood is water with some red food coloring stuff, not real blood. It is obvious that Tim is a rubber dummy.
Continuity mistake: Look at the newspaper photo of Clear before she committed herself - she has relatively dark hair. Definately not a natural blonde. Yet current Clear has much, much lighter blonde hair. We saw that she was blonde at the end of Final Destination - yet, her darker roots aren't particularly prominent, showing that during her time in the institution she must have bleached her hair at least once. For someone who's paranoid about death, she sure doesn't seem to care about the potentially acidic effect of having peroxide on her head. [Someone asks this in the commentary on the DVD, and the response is "she was a natural blonde, she dyed her hair brown in the first movie." This stands up, as it explains why there were no brown roots at the end of the first movie.]
Other mistake: At the beginning the reporter says it has been a year since flight 180 where 40 students and 4 faculty members of the school were killed. However in the first film the female teacher asks for one adult to get back on the flight with the kids as they were unsupervised. This means there were only two teachers, not four, and only one ends up on the plane and dies in the crash.
Visible crew/equipment: Officer Burke is peeping through Kimberly's house. Just as Kimberly is pulling up, when the camera shows her getting out of the car, look closely at the window. You will see a reflection of 2 crew members - 1 standing next to the officer and another one at the end of the house. A camera is seen inside the house too.

Continuity mistake: When all the survivors are leaving the police station, you can see their reflections in the two-way mirror. Before they cut to they mirror, Timmy's mom says, "Let's go" and starts to get up. But in the reflection, she is still sitting. Cut back to them and she is just getting up again. Also in the reflection, the young lady who was on her cell phone in the crash is getting up to leave; then they cut to the group and she is getting up again.
Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the film, even though the sky is cloudless and clear blue, the streets and highways are uniformly wet, as if a storm had just swept the area. Then, even though all of the vehicles on the highway are raising clouds of wet spray, none of the vehicle windshields are splattered with moisture, and none of the vehicles are using their windshield wipers. In fact, the only time we see a woman use her windshield wipers is when the guy throws a lit blunt onto the woman's windshield and it catches some dry leaves there on fire. So, in summation, dry leaves catch fire on the windshield of a car in spite of heavy road spray on a wet highway on a cloudless day. Multiple inconsistencies.
