Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The movie is set in Philadelphia. However, the ships used were at Patriots Point, Charleston South Carolina. The aircraft carrier, destroyer, and submarine are docked in the same positions as the movie.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): When the sailors arrive at the pier in the beginning, the white ship seen in the background is the NS Savannah, the world's first nuclear powered cargo ship. The NS Savannah was not launched until 21 July 1959, 16 years after the first experiment in the movie.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): David and Allison are shown in a horse trailer that is covered by a tarp. How did they get in and out of it?
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): In the beginning of the car chase, in the barn, there are shadows of camera equipment visible at David and Alisons car. Later, out in the fields, the helicopter shadow is seen from time to time.
