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 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: 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: 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: 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.

Richard Holmes

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 they are drawing straws to see who stays on the asteroid, they show AJ pulling his straw. It's the same length as the other straws shown, but when it cuts back to AJ he all of a sudden has the short straw.

Continuity mistake: The montages around the world show a boy listening to a transistor radio. In order to make it look truly Americana the boy has an old-fashioned earphone in one ear but continues to hold the transistor radio up to his ear as though the speaker were working in addition to the headphone.

Continuity mistake: Considering their space suits are made to measure, where did the Russian get his special anti-zero gravity suit from?

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of landing shuttles on the asteroid, Col. Sharp, pilot of Freedom, was wearing a black short sleeve T-shirt. At the moment of landing on the ground, he's wearing a flying jacket even not leaving his seat yet. Did he have enough time to put on his jacket during such an emergent situation?

Add time

Continuity mistake: When the two shuttles are trying to land on the asteroid, the shuttle Independence crashes, and it is shown crashing upside down and sliding across the surface of the asteroid. Later, having survived the crash, AJ and the Russian are outside the shuttle and it shows it sitting on it's belly, right-side up, with the words United States visible. How did the shuttle suddenly flip itself upright when moments before it was upside down?

Continuity mistake: The front of the space shuttle explodes twice. After we see it explode the first time after it first gets bombarded with projectiles, in the very next shot, we see the front half of the plane with two crew members floating around inside at which point we hear: "Houston!". Then the front part of the shuttle blows up again.

Next shot on the tower and the sweat is not in the same pattern. After he slides down the cable the dirt is in a different pattern again.

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.
