Final Destination 3

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ashley says that they've got CDs in the tanning salon you can see Ashlyn keeping a cream tube on the table with her right hand. In the next shot you see her continuing the same action with the left hand.

Deliberate mistake: There are a number of things wrong with the roller coaster scene (besides the obvious impossibility of a crash like this actually occurring): 1) The restraints use ratchets to lock, not hydraulics. A coaster of this type wouldn't even have any hydraulic lines. 2) The attendants didn't check all the restraints. This is ALWAYS necessary, on ANY ride. 3) On any roller coaster, the Dispatch button (or "Start" in the movie) must be held down until the train is clear of the station. This is a safety feature to make sure the attendants are clear of the moving train. If the button is released before the train is clear of the station, it will stop. 4) At the bottom of the lift, the lift chain curves to follow the track into the station. This is impossible, a lift chain cannot curve horizontally, only vertically (normally at the top of the hill).

Visible crew/equipment: In several shots during the weight room scene, a boom mic is reflected in the hanging swords.

Revealing mistake: The roller coaster used for the Devil's Flight is really the Corkscrew at Playland in Vancouver, where all three movies were filmed. If you look during the opening credits, you can see the name "Corkscrew" up in the lights above the coaster. After this, it says Devil's Flight during the rest of the roller coaster scenes.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Kevin and Wendy are talking outside of the school, Kevin's hair change positions depending on the shot. At the same time, each time the shot goes back to Kevin, not only does his hair change, but the people behind him. It switches from Julie and Perry to random people, then back again.

Factual error: A cordless nailgun takes about 2 seconds to recharge and cannot fire consecutive nails nearly as fast as depicted.

Visible crew/equipment: When both Kevin And Wendy are looking at the pictures after the funeral, Kevin asks Wendy to look at Frankies picture. Kevin then turns the car a little to the left almost hitting the tow truck, seen in the metal bumper you can see the front of the camera truck.

Factual error: The main character states that the photo plate of Lincoln has a crack in the precise location he was shot. Lincoln was shot behind his lower left ear and the bullet ended up behind his right temple. This is not the path shown in the picture.

Factual error: The bulk of the film takes place in and around June (the end of the school year), but dead leaves are rolling by with the gust of wind at the cemetery. It isn't Autumn yet, since the finale takes place 5 months later on Thanksgiving. (00:43:10)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the scene where Ashley and Ashlyn are burning in the tan beds, one of them looks out of the side of their tan bed. This is supposed to be Ashlyn, but she's facing the wrong way, which means she would have to be in the tanning bed she didn't get into to make this shot right.

Revealing mistake: At the end of the film where Wendy is stuck on the track, she looks back at everybody that died. At the right side of the screen, right in front of the camera, you can see a dead girl blink.


Continuity mistake: During the scene when Wendy is looking at her camera and Julie walks in to ask if its ready yet, you can see Wendy holding the paper with Ashley's number on it. Then when Julie walks out, Wendy turns and sees the paper on her desk, no where near her hand.

Other mistake: When Wendy and Kevin are grabbing lunch, just before Frankie Cheeks dies, the guy asks to take their orders (via the microphone) Wendy and Kevin never reply throughout the rest of the scene, and they are at the restaurant for at least another 2-3 minutes (during the whole of Frankie's death sequence) The guy working at the restaurant must be extremely patient not to ask for their orders again.

Deliberate mistake: During Wendy's roller-coaster premonition, you'll see a shot of Ian and Erin. The two girls behind Ian and Erin are supposed to be Julie and Perry, but are obviously stand-ins, considering they look nothing like the two actresses.

Continuity mistake: When the coaster passes Wendy on the right side, her hair blows on the left side.

Suggested correction: The wind is in the movie always a sign that death will come. So the reason for lifting the hair should not necessarily be caused by the roller coaster, but caused by death arriving soon.

Continuity mistake: During Frankie's death, right after the shot of Wendy and Kevin escaping, there is a very quick shot where Frankie is not in his car.

Factual error: During the McKinley Tri-Centennial there are several references to the American Revolutionary War with red coats marching through the festival, a man reenacting Paul Revere's Ride shouting "The British are coming!" And signs reading "celebrating 300 years of freedom." However this movie was made and set in 2006, which is about 70 years too early for a tricentennial celebration.

Suggested correction: The fictional town of McKinley was founded in 1705. The town is celebrating 300 years of its existence, not 300 years of America as a nation's existence. There are towns in America that were founded prior to the establishment of the United Stares that are still in existence. New Orleans for example celebrated their tricentennial in 2018.


Erin: Death is fucking complicated.

Trivia: Notice how on the final subway they pass Booth street (a reference to John Wilkes Booth who killed Lincoln) and are supposed to get off at Oswald St (referencing Lee Harvey Oswald who assassinated Kennedy.) Another reference to Lincoln is made earlier in the film with the pictures.

Question: I saw the answer to the whole Frankie death scene, but there's still something I don't get. If Wendy and Kevin had stayed in his truck, wouldn't they have died, and messed up Death's list?


Chosen answer: They would've died, but Death "knew" they wouldn't have stayed in the car. If they had stayed, Death would change his death.
