Character mistake: The newspaper article states that Lucinda was thirty-three at the time of her death in 1988. However, that would make her just four years old when she wrote the time capsule note in 1959 - four years old in the 3rd grade?

Revealing mistake: When John is stuck in traffic and he walks up to the other man asking if anyone was hurt, the guy looks behind John's shoulder as if the plane is coming right behind him. Then John turns around and looks right behind him as well. But the camera then pans all the way to the side to see the plane coming in before it crashes - they were looking in the wrong place.

Destination

Continuity mistake: In the last couple of scenes, when John is driving through the city from the gas station, the back door of his truck is constantly changing from open to closed and to no door at all.

Diana Whelan: What happens when the numbers run out?

Add time

Ted Myles: Stay with me. I know how this sounds, but I've mapped these numbers to the dates of every major global disaster from the last 50 years in perfect sequence. Earthquakes, fires, tsunamis... The next number on the chain predicts that tomorrow, somewhere on the planet,81 people are going to die, in some kind of tragedy.
Phil Bergman: Whoa. Just step back. Have another look at it! Systems that find meaning in numbers are a dime in dozen. Why? Because people see what they want to see.

Question: The whisper people bring the selected boy and girl to safety before the final day of earth. Why do they plant a message to be found and decoded just before the final day? I do not think the whisper people need any help from any humans to save humanity (and organize a whisperers' version of Noah's Ark).

Moalian

Answer: There is no intention on the part of the whisper people to warn humanity as a whole, merely a select group of children who appear, due to their telepathic powers, to be the next stage in human evolution, and their respective guardians.

Question: At the beginning of the film when Caleb realizes the dates are major disasters, why does Caleb's dad drop the glass he was holding? Also, why does Caleb start writing dates of disasters when the world is already about to end?

Shadow5

Chosen answer: Lucinda finished what she started in the school closet, simply the GPS location of her grandmother's home. Caleb writes numbers so his dad can take them away from him so he can etch the desk to remind his dad that Lucinda's numbers are still on the school closet door.

Question: Why, near the end of the film, does Caleb start writing numbers which are supposed to be predictions of future events, when the world is going to end?

Chosen answer: Great question. Probably writing predictions for the "new" world.
