Goofs

When the first news people chase Susan Sarandon's character to her car the camera's battery falls off. With a nod to continuity it stays off in the following shots of the scene. Factually though this would render the camera useless. The camera wouldn't work and since the viewfinder is electronic it would be dead, or blank. Even in the extremely unlikely event the cameraman didn't notice the weight and balance change of the battery having fallen off the camera's shutting off and being dead would have been noticed by the cameraman.

Good Movie!!
26 May 2006 | by Mary KakelSee all my reviews

THIS MOVIE ROCKS!!!!!!!!! If I want to watch a movie about how life COULD be I'll rent Cinderella! It's important to have real life movies once in a while and not just another fairy tale.

This movie is good because you get to see how each person is different and how everyone will face an emergency situation differently than the next person. It's just a story that is being told about an average American family and how they faced the problems that surfaced. The movie contains humor, drama, romance, as well as tragedy. Important family values really shine through in this film. I would and have suggested this movie to many, many people.
