Factual error: The girls escape down into a storm cellar to get away from the tornado. As the twister passes, it is indicated by just a lot of loud wind sounds and constant shattering glass. This is not at all what a tornado would sound like. As many tornado survivors have stated, one would sound like a huge freight train rocketing down the tracks at reckless speeds, and accompanied by what sounds like constant explosions as it disintegrates everything in its path. Living in Arkansas, I am quite familiar with that sound. (00:16:05)Quantom X
Plot hole: When the mom spots the tornado behind them down the street, she brings the car to a screeching halt on the side of the road and orders the sisters to get out. They then take off on foot down a long driveway to get to a stranger's house. This is an illogical decision. If wanting to hurry to escape the tornado, why stop at the driveway and take off on foot? They would have reached the house much much quicker by driving down the driveway to the house. (00:14:55)Quantom X
Continuity mistake: During the car trip to Kansas City, Alice and the mother are both on the driver side of the car, the mother driving, and Alice in the back seat. When the mother asks Alice how her book is, there are just open fields out the window of the mother. But in the cuts to Alice, there are telephone poles going by that are not seen in the shots of the mother. (00:10:15)Quantom X
Visible crew/equipment: In the scene after the alcoholics meeting, the mother returns home and calls up the stairs asking if the girls are ready. The camera goes down a hallway and towards Sally's room. As it does, it glances over a picture showing the three sisters together. As it does, the camera is reflected in the picture.

Continuity mistake: After escaping the cellar, Jennifer and Sally approach a couple from the dark. Jennifer is holding wounded Sally up on her left shoulder and holding the dead cop's pistol in her right hand. It cuts to the guy saying "What the...?" then back to the sisters, and suddenly the pistol is gone from her hand and tucked into the front of her pants. There was not enough time during the shot on the guy for her to have one handedly put the gun down the front of her pants. (01:06:20)Quantom X
