Final Destination

Other mistake: When Carter is basically trying to kill himself with the remaining "survivors" in his car, Billy makes a comment saying that when he saw Alex leaving Mrs. Lewton's place, Alex's shoe prints were in her blood and his prints were on the knife. All good and fine but there's just one thing that doesn't make much sense. Her house blew up right after he ran out, so could anyone still pull off any prints from the knife that killed her, and see footprints by her body? Wouldn't that evidence be gone in the explosion?

Suggested correction: Not necessarily. An explosion doesn't mean that everything around it is incinerated. Depending on where the explosion originated, certain items can be shielded from the blast/fire by larger objects, and I believe they mentioned that the fire caramelized the bloody footprints.

Revealing mistake: When Alex is running through the woods and is sliding down the hill, just before he stops himself from being impaled by some branches, you can hear someway say "Look out." It can't be the agents following as they're too far away.

Continuity mistake: When you first see Carter's car you can see that is says "SS" on the front. Then when he almost hits Billy at the school it doesn't say it. Then when he is on the train tracks it says "SS" again.

Factual error: When Ms. Lewton takes out her mother's favorite record album, the label is obviously a fake. None of John Denver's albums had his name written that large on the label.

Suggested correction: I think this is for two reasons: i) Copyright. ii) To show to the audience she is going to die by making the song obvious to them.

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

Trivia: When Alex's air ticket is torn at the checking desk before he boards 180 if you look at the ticket very closely there is a piece of text saying,'Your Final Flight'.

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.
