Continuity mistake: After Sharpe and Stamper have the argument on the asteroid, Truman says they need the radio back up. When he says this, you see the countdown clock for the asteroid which is at five hours and 12 minutes. A bit later in the film, after the nuke was shut down by a technician at NASA, one of the Air Force Sergeants takes the terminal. In the background, you can see the clock again but the time on it is at six hours and 49 minutes.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, after the asteroid explodes, we see Grace looking through the glass and there are reflections of NASA controllers cheering. The same shot was used earlier in the film to depict Grace looking upset at some bad news. The camera zoomed into the picture a bit, but you can still see one controller cheering.

Continuity mistake: When in the Russian space station, AJ is in a little pit fixing something. When we see him, he has a little snow hat. The next time he has nothing on. Then back again with the little hat.

Continuity mistake: When Harry is going to A.J's room, he bangs on the door with a golf club. You can see the white fan fall to the ground. Then when Harry walks in the fan is back on the ledge.

Continuity mistake: When A.J.'s Armadillo needs to break out of the space shuttle, the crew shoot up the walls of the hull of the ship. But then when they drive the Armadillo through the hull, the ship breaks apart at the seams rather than at the bullet holes.

Continuity mistake: The first meteor is a direct hit on a street vendor in NY where the dog is chewing on one of his Godzilla figurines. To start with he's chewing a small Godzilla, then it cuts to the vendor tugging on it, then it cuts back and its suddenly a much larger one.

Continuity mistake: Even though the second shuttle takes off later then the first, they are neck and neck when they clear the atmosphere.

Continuity mistake: There are two crews boarding their spacecraft, called "Freedom" and "Independence." They are mounting a ramp and when on top, there is a crew member who directs the two different crews toward their ship: "Independence on the left, Freedom on the right." We even see the ships (in their initial launch phases) right next to each other - you can see one right next to the other as they launch. Then, once they're airborne, we see a long shot of the two bright engines, miles apart.

Continuity mistake: When they are discussing the plan to jump the armadillo, A.J. Frost's left ear goes from having a clear earpiece over it in profile, to having a yellow earplug in from the front.

Continuity mistake: During the scene where AJ is playing with cookies on Grace's stomach on the last night before the launch, the car behind them alternately appears and disappears as well as moves around. Best example - wide shot shows them well behind the car, then in a shot of Grace her head's right by the tyre.

Continuity mistake: When Harry goes into A.J.'s room, he gets mad and sticks the end of the golf club at A.J.'s throat, with the tip of the club to the right. The next scene, the tip of the club is facing to the left.

Continuity mistake: When they are in the shuttle trying to disarm the bomb, it is the pilot that is telling the munitions specialist, the guy that is supposed to know everything about the bomb, which wires to cut.

Continuity mistake: In the sequence where they are disarming the bomb. When the clock gets down to 00:24, the picture is reversed (the split second shot when they pull the clock out of the bomb). This one is better to go frame by frame on the DVD.

Continuity mistake: Just after Harry says "prepare the world for bad news," air raid sirens start. There's a panning down shot of some air raid speakers next to a Coca-Cola ad, with a truck parked in front of it. The angle then changes to a shot down the street (same street, same speakers, same Coca-Cola ad), except the truck isn't in front of the ad any more.

Continuity mistake: When the crews climb onto the buses to travel out to the shuttles, none of them are wearing sunglasses. When they exit the bus those that are seen are wearing sunglasses. However, the following 'slow mo' shot of everyone shows they aren't again.

Continuity mistake: Truman is seen in Florida talking with the astronauts prior to lift-off. From the same command center, he controls the entire mission. But Mission Control for all missions is in Houston, Texas. Once the rocket "clears the tower," Mission Control in Houston takes over. How can Truman be in Florida, then appear in Texas a few seconds later?

Continuity mistake: When the astronaut Sharp comes to his senses and decides to disarm the bomb while it is counting down, the digital readout is just all wrong. Bruce Willis is talking to him and the time reads 40 seconds left. After a good 20 seconds of talking, he starts working on the bomb with a screwdriver and the time reads 35 seconds. Next time we see it, it reads 30 seconds, then when the cover that holds the timer is removed it looks like it reads 45 seconds.

Continuity mistake: When Harry is golfing off of the oil rig, the holes on the golf ball are spaced about a yard away. In the next shot, before he hits it, the holes are right together. It also goes from saying just "Srixon" to "3 Srixon," then the lettering gets angled, then he finally hits it.

Continuity mistake: When Stamper is banging on AJ's door, a fan and about six cans are on the shelf. In the next shot, the fan has fallen off, but there are only three cans on the shelf.

Continuity mistake: When the military come to get Harry from the rig, you see the shot going between the two. In three shots, Harry has a large speck of oil on his nose but on the fourth it has disappeared.

Mistakes

During the scene where it shows people all over the world, just before the shuttles take off, it is daylight everywhere. It would actually be dark or near dark in parts of the world.

Trivia

While being strapped in, Rockhound tells Harry they're sitting on "something with 270,000 moving parts all built by the lowest bidder." This is a paraphrase of a quote by Alan Shepherd.
