Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): SPOILER: Lilith's heart would not be available for transplant in the scenario as it is shown. In real life, she would have been intubated and had multiple IV access and monitoring sites, and the hospital would have had to go through the process of having her declared brain dead before her organs could be removed.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): The surgeon starts prepping the op site even before the anesthesiologist intubates the patient. Usually you first sedate, then anesthetize & intubate the patient before any preparations starts b/c the sedatives and hypnotics tend to make a person susceptible to hallucinations & bad trips that could be triggered by sensory input (noise, light, the cold from the disinfectant).
  • SPOILER: As visible on a letter envelope, Jessica Alba's character's real name is Samantha Tunnell, named for co-producer Tory Tunnell.
  • Not screened in advance for critics.
