Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The wide shot of the bridge exploding, followed by a tanker crashing into a group of houses as the minivan escapes, was conceived of, and shot, only one month prior to its footage premiering during the SuperBowl spot, effects ready and all.
  • The gun that the man puts to Ray's head is a SIG-Sauer P226.
  • Justin Chatwin plays a character who has Dragonball toys on the shelf in his room. Appropriate, Chatwin would later play Goku in Dragonball Evolution.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Ray is fleeing New Jersey in the stolen car to go to his ex-wife's house he jumps on the expressway. The expressway is jam packed bumper-to-bumper right before the point of the exit on ramp. The road from the point of the on ramp and after (where Ray is driving) while still cluttered with cars, is still very easy to navigate whipping in and out of each lane. There is no way a car could drive on the expressway before the point where Ray jumps on the expressway.
