Corrected entry: At the end of the movie when they are heading back to earth the astronauts are wearing space suits and the pilots are wearing flying clothes but when they touch down the astronauts are wearing orange uniforms and the pilots blue.
Corrected entry: At the beginning when the Chinese people arrive on Harry's rig, Harry says that Grace is going out with AJ due to a lack of choices because no one else is in her age bracket. However, after AJ proposes to Grace, Harry says that Oscar is 5 minutes older than Grace.
Corrected entry: Throughout the movie, the United States is making all the decisions about how to do things. This is most demonstrated when the President of the United States gives the order to remote detonate before the 800 ft. hole is dug. Why does the President get to decide and almost doom the whole planet? Shouldn't the UN make decisions like that?
Corrected entry: As the 2 shuttles are leaving the atmosphere, the SRB's and ET (solid rocket boosters, external tank) break away at the same time. In reality, the SRB's break away much sooner than the ET, as the SRB's are only used to get the shuttle off the ground.
Corrected entry: At the very end, when the camera pans across the attendees of Grace's wedding, we see the stand-ins and not the real cast. Chick's stand-in doesn't look anything like him and for awhile I thought it was the loanshark, but why would he be sitting in the front row of Grace's wedding? Apparently, those that survived the asteroid couldn't tolerate a Ben Affleck wedding and sent representatives on their behalf.
Corrected entry: In the movie they show people around the world praying. They show a shot of Taj Mahal in India and hundreds sitting around praying. Oops, Taj Mahal is not a place of worship, it's a tomb.
Corrected entry: To increase the chance of success, there's a backup for everything: we have 2 crews, with 2 shuttles, 2 armadillos etc. However, when we get the crisis where the government wants to blow up the nuke before the hole is finished, there is only one bomb. Isn't there a second nuclear bomb in the shuttle that crashed?
Corrected entry: The asteroid is said to be "as big as Texas." Presumably that means about the diameter of Texas, about 1000 miles. Drilling down 800 feet or meters barely scratches the surface of such a rock, and would merely make a nice crater, not split the rock in two. Drilling 500 *miles* down would have a better chance.
Corrected entry: In the scene when the asteroids hit New York, the dog is hanging in the impact crater by his leash. When they show the overhead shot of the crater you see the body of the Godzilla street vendor halfway laying in the hole. When they show the dog inside the crater the vendor is nowhere to be found.
