The ex cop for no reason just decided to go to the laundry room and look in one of the machines, where he discovers her head. There is no possible explanation for why he just decides to go to the laundry room and look through the washing machines.swordfish
Corrected entry: In the scene where John Cusack is photographing the corpse (on the region 2 DVD theatrical cut), the disposable camera doesn't flash for one of the shots (Strangely, he doesn't seem to notice this). However, it does flash the next time he takes a picture, even though he never touches the flash charge button on the disposable camera.
Corrected entry: Unless limos/town cars are made differently (so correct me if I'm wrong), the windows of Jon Cusack's car should have been tempered glass. Therefore, when he breaks the window with the tire iron to get the cell phone from the actress, the glass should have shattered instead of broken into huge jagged chunks.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the movie when Paris is driving through the orange grove that is supposed to be in Polk County, Florida , you can see a mountain in the background. There are no mountains in Florida.
Corrected entry: When they are looking through the driver's licenses of the people at the motel, Paris' Florida drivers license number starts with a V. Florida driver license numbers start with the first letter of the person's last name. Since Paris' last name is Nevada, her license number should start with an N.
Corrected entry: If the real D.O.C. officer was stabbed in the back through the seat wasn't there a big blood spot on the driver's seat, and wouldn't there be a hole? Didn't anyone notice that, especially Ed, the ex-cop? Why didn't the hooker notice it when she saw the radio wires were cut?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Rebecca de Mornay takes the shower curtain outside to make a cell phone call, she rips the curtain hard from the shower rod. When a person does this, the curtain will tear away from the loops, with the metal loops remaining on the metal shower rod. However, the rings are still attached to the curtain, apparently passing through the shower rod undamaged.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Ginnie locks herself in the bathroom, after her husband is killed. The murderer is pulling on the door and you can see the lock is being pulled away from the doorjam. How does the door remain locked?
Corrected entry: When the actress was outside in the rain and she heard something, she turned around and screamed. But if it was the kid doing all the killing, she would have had to look down. But she looked straight at her eye-level where she wouldn't have been able to see him.
Corrected entry: In the scene where all the character's are in one room, you can see a clock behind Ginny that says 12:20, the camera moves off her and keeps coming back to her over the next 2 mins or so. Yet the clock continues to say 12:20 for the two minutes that the scene actually took place.
Corrected entry: In the scene where they are going through everyone's drivers licenses to see the birthdates, they hold up George York's which is an Illinois driver's license. While they did a really good job making it look authentic, the license is full of mistakes. First of all, the first letter in the Illinois DL number is always the first letter of your last name, but George York's license number started with P. Secondly, the license number consists of 3 sets of numbers and the last digit of the second set and the first digit of the third set are your birth year (Hence if your DL number was H658-9857-6321 you were born in 1976) but George's digits in the number are 5-6 and the birthdate is listed as 5-10-59. Third, the address is listed as Everton, IL 60045. there is no Everton, IL and 60045 is the Zip Code for Lake Forest, IL.princesskelli
Corrected entry: In the movie, Lou was supposedly stabbed in the abdominal area because that's where all the blood was, but in the scene where Ed is taking photographs of Lou, you can see that there are no stab wounds anywhere near his abdominal area or his body.
Corrected entry: In the scene where some of the guests are getting rooms the innkeeper says "I don't like to look at trash," Ed walks over and talks to George and he says "looks like were stuck here George." That's weird because George never tells Ed his name.
Corrected entry: When Ginny and her husband arrive at the motel they are put into room 6 and when her husband slams the door the 6 falls upside down and becomes 9 but from shot to shot the number is 6 on the door and then it is upside down again to 9 when Edward goes to the room.
Corrected entry: After the scene where John looks through the licenses he walks away from the motel. He puts his hand out palm up in the rain, the next immediate shot his hand is clenched in a fist and he opens it again.
Corrected entry: When John Cusak runs over the boy's mother, who is standing by her own car, he makes an emergency stop and gets out of the car to help. Given that he was driving at 50+ mph, in heavy rain, the car should take quite some distance to stop. However, when he leaves the car, the camera angle change reveals that his car has stopped a mere couple of metres beyond her car, whilst her body has failed to travel any distance at all.
Corrected entry: In the scene showing the cuckoo clock, the time shown is 3 o'clock. In the next scene, the digital clock next to the bed reads 12:20.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Paris enters the cop car and discovers that Rhodes really isn't a cop, the camera pans to show wires indicating that the car was forced to start. The car was already running and being driven by the cop that was killed, presumably the keys were in the ignition. Why would they need to break in?
Corrected entry: In the scene where the car blows up everybody rushes to the car AS SOON as they hear the explosion, and if you look at the front seats they have already burned down to the metal. The funny thing about that is when they didn't find any bodies the manager suggested maybe they were cremated and that was over ruled because it was said the bodies woudn't have burned that quickly. Well those seats sure did.apple
Corrected entry: Toward the end of the movie, Paris Nevada is driving on a highway surrounded by orange groves in Frostproof, Florida. In the background is a mountain, but there are no mountains in Florida - some hills, perhaps, but no big mountains as depicted in the film.
Corrected entry: When Ed told Ginny to take Timmy and keep driving until dawn, how did Timmy manage to walk over to the car, get Ginny in the car, blow up the car, and be a safe distance away from the explosion in a matter of seconds?
Corrected entry: Every character in the movie was one of Malcolm's personalities and when they died, there was a key found next to each body. Where was the key for the cop that Rhodes and Maine killed?
