Goofs

(at around 2 mins) When Natalie in her Subaru Forester goes off the cliff she still has her seatbelt on. When the car flips one more time, she no longer has any seatbelt on and is holding on to where the windshield was broken out - so that when the car abruptly stops, she is flung into the back cargo area instead of remaining in her seat.

Quotes

Raymond Gaines: I wanna thank you guys for being there for Blake.
Emma Gaines: Yeah, thank you.
Ben Taylor: You're welcome. But it was more like she was there for us. I think.

Hey, Californians! - It's "Duck & Cover" Time!
3 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

(*Most moronic movie-quote of all*) - "Now... We rebuild."

Yes. I know that this was "just-a-movie" - (But, all the same) - Whether this was a story about a natural catastrophe or about a vicious terrorist attack - I would have seriously thought that by now (especially after the horrific reality of 9/11) that the American people would have had "enough already" when it came to having buildings coming crashing down on their heads.

But, I guess, this doesn't appear to be the case - As is evident here in this movie of total mass destruction.

And, if this wasn't puzzling and peculiar enough as it is..... When our courageous, jock-hero, Ray uttered the line - "Now... We rebuild." (as the American flag was being flagrantly waved in our faces) - To think that after such a devastating disaster as the one that just occurred (which levelled countless skyscrapers and, no doubt, caused the deaths of millions) - There was any rational thought of actually building again on the same shaky ground - Well - That, to me, has got to be the ultimate moment of sheer human stupidity, if there ever was one.
