The Faculty

Factual error: Zeke is in his car trying to fight off Miss Burke and they crash into the school bus, causing an explosion. The gas tank in Zeke's car is under the trunk of his car and the gas tank to the bus is in the rear of it. Everything underneath both hoods is mechanical and nothing is combustible at the front where the impact occurs.

Plot hole: If Marybeth was able to seal her nostrils and use her extended finger to remove the cap and make nobody suspicious about her, why didn't Delilah do the same thing? She was alien, so she should've still been able to do it, same as Marybeth.

Continuity mistake: When you first see Delilah at the start she puts her hair behind her ears. When the camera angle changes her hair is in front of her ear again.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film, the students gather around the fish tank in the classroom. In the close-up scene the tank is brim full (the students actually touch the water when they lean on the tank). However, in the long shot, the tank is only half full.

Other mistake: While Ms. Burke appears fine at the end despite losing her head, Jon Stewart still has the eyepatch from earlier when he should be healed too.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Coach Willis tells Casey he did some fast running and there is plenty of chasing on the field then the camera cuts to showing Casey and his father, the tip of a boom mic is visible at the top of the screen. (00:34:00)

Nurse Harper: I'm saving my sick-days till when I'm feeling better.

Trivia: "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" co-star Charisma Carpenter was approached for the role of head cheerleader Delilah. Carpenter turned down the role, feeling it was too similar to her "mean-girl" "Buffy" character Cordelia.

Question: Why are the aliens in that town? If they come from a oceanic planet then why not go directly into one of our five or so oceans?

Rob245

Answer: The aliens needed fresh water. All the infected were drinking bottled water. When the gang were examining the slug in the garage, it dried up and died from salt, like a snail.

Answer: Whales and dolphins also lack manipulating appendages and the ability to survive on land.

LorgSkyegon

Answer: The aliens need to infect intelligent life to thrive. There is no intelligent life in our oceans.

BaconIsMyBFF

That is not exactly true. Whales and dolphins are considerably intelligent, arguably near human-level, and live in complex social groups.

Answer: Well if they need to stay hydrated whales and dolphins make more sense than inhabiting people.

Rob245

Dolphins and whales are also far less numerous. With populations numbering fewer than 10 million total across all species versus nearly 6 billion at the time for humanity.

LorgSkyegon

Answer: It could be the salt or pollution. The aliens were drinking nothing but pure bottled water.

Good answer. Dang all you guys on this site are pretty good at this. I enjoy these answers you give since hardly anybody ever listens to me.
