Here's one thing that really bothers me about this movie, they get up around 23,000 feet, where the temperature should be about 20 below, and the lack of oxygen should be putting them to sleep or unconscious, and they're wearing light clothes. What's up with that?? I don't understand how anybody could go that high in a balloon which was ultimately over 30,000 feet, without an oxygen mask without warm clothing and so on.
