At the kidnappers' house, the New Line Cinema movie Final Destination 2 (2003) is playing on the television. It also makes numerous references to the series, such as the truck crashing into Ryan's car (using the same sound effects) and an announcement at the airport referencing a Flight 180, the same flight in the first movie.
Producer Dean Devlin has a cameo as the cab driver who drives Ryan.
When Ryan steals the school security guard's car, he drives off without having to switch gears (the car would have been in park or neutral). See more »

Awesome flick! Kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. The plot twists were surprisingly convincing and I didn't have to stretch too far to suspend disbelief. It way outshone my expectations and I found myself swept right up in the action. The acting was superb and the direction kept us moving from nail-biting suspense to laughing at the stereotyped ignorant store clerks, nasty lawyers and others that are encountered at various points in the script. What a great balance of believable and amusing! We had the greatest time enjoying this film. The parts that weren't so believable were very satisfying and the parts that were believable were incredibly suspenseful. The point is, the whole thing made for a terrific package. No, you won't go home a better person for having seen this. And you won't carry the images with you or ponder great philosophies because of it. It's not a To Kill a Mockingbird of Of Mice and Men, but it is a wonderful escape from all you problems for a couple hours and you'll feel like you've been on the most exhilarating thrill ride you could find in the park! All thumbs up for this one!
