Final Destination

Continuity mistake: Right before Terry is hit by the bus, there are puddles and wet patches all over the road and path. When the bus actually makes contact with Terry, they all instantly disappear. On top of that, during the kid's conversation before Terry gets hit by the bus, the road where the bus comes speeding from is actually blocked by a large construction machine. There is no way the bus could come from there. (00:47:10)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Alex is watching the TV on how the plane exploded, look at the illustration shown. Then compare it with the illustration that appears on Alex's computer screen. The positions of the explosions shown are different. (00:50:42)

Continuity mistake: The plane that takes off and explodes isn't a Boeing 747. It should be because that's what they boarded.

Continuity mistake: When Ms. Lewton dies, she is grabbing her bleeding neck with her left hand. While walking into the kitchen, she leans onto the kitchen table with her right hand. Later in the scene, when Alex comes and tries to help her, we see the bloody left hand impression on the table, even though we should see the right one.

Continuity mistake: When they are going through the gate to get on the plane, the teacher counts the pupils (in French). He counts upwards in ones, even when two pass him at the same time, arm in arm.

Continuity mistake: Late in the film, Alex Browning hides out in the cabin and attempts to make it as death-proof as possible, securing everything therein with ropes and duct tape, and carefully placing his kerosene lantern in a tray of water. At first, we see that the antique lantern is painted dark green; but, one scene later, the same antique lantern (in the same tray of water) is now painted bright red.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Billy gets his head sliced off by a piece of metal that fell off the train, as his head rolls away his hair is a much lighter shade of brown than it was during the rest of the film.

Continuity mistake: When Alex is talking to Clear in her garage, one strand of her hair keeps changing, first curled under, and then straight, back and forth...

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning, when they are at the Memorial for the school, look closely to the right of Devon Sawa right after he and the other gal look at one another - an extra with red hair walks in front of him, in the very next shot Devon gets up, and the same extra is now behind him.

Continuity mistake: When you see Alex watching the news report about the crash of 180, after coming back from the airport, you see his mum and dad asleep on the couch with a pillow at the end of his mothers foot and a few shots later after hearing the loud thunder, the pillow is lying on her ankles.

Continuity mistake: After Alex reads his porno and throws the magazine at the owl, that one piece of paper with "Todd" pops out of the fan after the magazine got stuck in it. Now, this is a very small mistake, but if you look at the shape of the piece of paper, the one short stump side changes between takes. Like I said, it's very small differences, but there are differences.

Continuity mistake: When Billy is explaining about being in the bathroom, not on the plane, he has his head in the door's path. Camera cuts and he puts his head back in the path, blocking the door. (00:16:50)

Continuity mistake: While Alex is talking with his parents before the trip, there is a small object besides the switch that disappears between shots.

Continuity mistake: Before Alex and his friends enter the airport there is lady in white that crosses the door at least 3 times.

Character mistake: At the memorial service the principal says that it's been 39 days since 39 loved ones had died. But there were 40 students on the plane and 4 chaperones, making the total 44. Now 7 people got off the plane which means 37 people related to that memorial service actually died, not 39. Two pilots would make up the numbers, but there would be flight crew too, which still leaves the numbers off.

Bludworth: In death, there are no accidents, no coincidences, no mishaps and no escapes.

More quotes from Final Destination

Trivia: In the airport after the plane explodes, it shows Terry with a terrified look on her face. Right behind her is a picture of a bus, which is the way she would die later in the movie. Also, at Ms. Lewton's house, when she is standing in front of her computer, behind her is a stained glass window with a picture of a knife, which is how she would later die.

More trivia for Final Destination

Question: I don't get how Alex could have died in Clear's Dad's cabin with the fishing rod opening the door and the rusty fish hook and the knife flying out. What happened behind the door?

Answer: As Alex picks up the fish hook he smiles and says "tetanus". Although not ideal, Death hoped to infect Alex with tetanus, a lot slower a death than intended, but a death nevertheless.
