Corrected entry: In the scene with the G8 meeting the American President is talking to the G8 members. The Russian President turns to his translator and speaks in clear Serbian language (not Russian!) 'do not go out, stay' (nemoj da izadjes, ostani). Then in the next moment the Russian President tells his translator in clear Serbian 'You can go now' (mozes da izadjes).
Corrected entry: When Charlie shows Jackson his video of the 1958 Earth Crust Displacement theory, it states that Einstein agreed with Charles Hapgood's theory, this can't be possible, since Einstein died 3 years earlier in 1955.
Corrected entry: The scene after the earthquake in Washington D.C., when President Wilson is seen coming out of the rubble, we see a giant tsunami heading toward him. On the tsunami is the USS John F. Kennedy with the words "USS John F. Kennedy" painted across the runway deck. On the real USS John F. Kennedy, no such words are printed across the deck.
Corrected entry: Why is it that after they claim earlier in the film that all global communication has ceased, an Indian watching an approaching Tsunami can make a mobile phone call to someone in the middle of a mountain in China?
Corrected entry: In the scene where the small plane is on the landing strip in Yellowstone park, the engine of it starts and stops between shots. It is seen when the camper van is approaching the plane - when we cut between the van and the cast the engine is started, then stopped, then started again within a very small time frame.
Corrected entry: When John Cusack picks up his family (plus the new husband) to escape from the ensuing mayhem, there is a scene where the limo uses a piece of broken concrete in the street as a ramp, so that the whole car is airborne for one or two seconds. In that shot you can see that the front tires are not moving at all.
Corrected entry: After the survivors escape from Las Vegas in the Antonov they are obviously worried about fuel and making it all the way to China. As any fool knows, lightening a plane increases range and yet, oddly, it never seems to occur to them to ditch all the heavy and now useless automobiles into the ocean. Luckily, the cars come in handy to manufacture an exciting exit from the plane at the end of the flight.
Corrected entry: The heavy cargo lifter shown is an Antonov AN-225, developed from the AN-124 to carry the Soviet space shuttles Buran. Different from the original plane, the single AN-225 built doesn't have a rear cargo door. The only access for internal cargo is in the front, where the nose and cockpit swivels up, like in the C-5 Galaxy and many 747 freighters. The second partially built AN-225 would have a rear cargo door, but it'd also have a single tail, not a dual tail.
Corrected entry: The Russian plane has 6 engines, yet there are only controls for 4 in the cockpit.
Corrected entry: There are two scenes in which a plane narrowly manages to take off before the ground collapses into the depths of Earth. The problem with these scenes is that those holes would not only swallow the surface, they would also suck in air. Without enough altitude nor enough velocity a plane would therefore be pulled into the new craters. That's why helicopters and small planes are instructed to avoid open-pit mines. And those are just static holes.
Corrected entry: When describing the temperature of Earth's crust around the world, it is said to be "increasing at a high velocity." Velocity is a vector quantity and implies a speed and spatial direction, which a rate of temperature increase/decrease simply would not have as a scalar quantity.
