Corrected entry: While Alan is in the bathroom washing and tidying himself up, there is a shot of the lion in the bedroom. The lion yawns, without showing his tongue. Lions always stick out, or at least expose their tongues when they yawn.
Corrected entry: This was the first time CGI was used to create animals. The CGI artists said the most difficult part was making the lion's mane look realistic.
Corrected entry: During the monsoon, no water ever escapes through the house's doors. Water never leaks underneath the doors, or through the locks.
Corrected entry: When the Yellow Pod's "root" raps around Peter's Leg, nobody tries to get it off. But, still, in the next scene, the "root" is miraculously gone.
Corrected entry: In the scene where they finally finish the game and the hunter is going to shoot Allen but Sarah jumps in front of him, everything is getting sucked back into the game. The bullet in front of them is being pulled backward but Sarah's hair is being blown in the opposite direction. It should be blowing in the same direction.
Corrected entry: When they first find the game in the attic, the girl pulls out the pieces. She never closed the compartment that held the pieces and the dice, but after the pieces flew out on to the board she opened the compartment again to take out the dice.
Corrected entry: Despite the fact that young Alan had no driving ability (as he rides a bike), it seems odd that he is able to do perfect power slides after his older self picks up the cop.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Alan is sinking through the wooden floor in the attic, he sinks all the way until only his face and hands are still above the floor. When the aunt walks into the house she sees Alan's body only from the waist down dangling from the ceiling.
Corrected entry: In the monsoon scene, the house fills up with water. How is this possible when the back half of the house has been ripped off by the stampede? Wouldn't the water rush out of the back?
Corrected entry: In the scene with the monsoon, an alligator is seen swimming. Later, Sarah puts her feet on the alligator, stopping it from biting. Then we see another one nearly biting Peter, and then it goes back to Sarah and the alligator in the same position as before. But there's only one alligator in that scene.
Corrected entry: Alan manages to escape the cop by handcuffing his hand to the car door. To ensure that the cop can't drive after him, he throws the keys into the brush. But when he gets back in the car to go to Sir Sav-A-Lot, the keys are back in the ignition.
Corrected entry: In the end when Alex and Sarah see the kids and their parents, neither of the kids remember anything about the game or the car crash, but Alex and Sarah remember. Shouldn't they remember what happened if Alex and Sarah did?
Corrected entry: At the end when the hunter tries to kill Robin Williams, the kids finish the game just before the bullet reaches his head, making the game suck back everything it produced, thus saving his life. He should have died, because the gun he used wasn't from the game, he had bought it from a gun shop.
[Alan is explaining to Sarah why Van Pelt is chasing him.]
Sarah: Well, have you ever thought about sitting down and talking about your differences?
Alan: What are you, crazy? The man has a gun.
Sarah: Don't ever call me crazy, Alan. Ever. Because everyone in this town has been calling me crazy ever since I told the cops you were sucked into a board game.
