Final Destination

Plot hole: When Alex and Clear are sitting and having coffee they are on a corner. He looks in the window to see the bus pass, and as he looks to see if it is there, it's not. As the camera pans across the street, there is some construction going on which is blocking that whole road from being used, but then Terry, Carter's girlfriend gets "waxed" by the bus - no way it could have got through all that construction.

Plot hole: Why are the FBI investigating Alex? After it was determined the plane explosion was a malfunction, they should have left. FBI don't investigate teen suicide, bus accidents or a teacher's death.

New this week Suggested correction: The original script for Final Destination (called "Flight 180") was written in 1994 as an episode of the X-Files TV show, but it was never used for the series. The X-Files was entirely focused on the FBI investigating paranormal events.

New this week Suggested correction: Because he had a vision of the plane "exploding" and find that very weird. Everyone believes that Alex is some freak so why shouldn't the FBI be checking up on him? Added to that, Tod was one of the "survivors" from Flight 180, same with Mrs. Lewton and Terry, so obviously it's all connected and Alex is at the center of it all. Also, Clear said so herself that the "FBI don't investigate teen suicides", so this can't really count as a mistake; again, it's all connected.

Mistakes

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.

Trivia

The filmmakers originally had an ending in which Alex grabs the cable that lies on Clear's car, Alex catches fire and dies. Then Clear gets her baby and Carter survives. The test audience didn't like this, so the filmmakers shot another ending in which Alex is decapitated by a crashing police helicopter. But again, the test audience didn't like the fact that Alex dies, so they shot the finish with the billboard, which took 6 days to film and cost nearly $2,000,000.
