** In the SpiritualSuccessor side, the film is a more practical and straightforward version of 1997's ''Film/{{Contact}}'', which also deals with an otherworldy message that triggers a drive for space exploration. In ''Interstellar'''s case, they actually have the logistics for space travel and [[spoiler:Cooper speculates that the messengers are advanced futuristic humans]], whereas in ''Contact'', the beings basically provide the means [[spoiler:and are extraterrestrial]].

* FailedASpotCheck: In the opening scene, numerous people somehow fail to spot a gigantic dust cloud until it's almost on top of them. The waves on the water planet also come from absolutely nowhere, despite being so large they can be seen from orbit. Also, when the crew is digging around in the water, there is no way the probe debris would be that close together with waves that powerful tossing it around. Finally, when the crew is looking for the probe wreckage, they proclaim they should be right on top of it, when their root steps on it and digs it out... at which point the camera pans to reveal that they're ''surrounded'' by brightly-painted pieces of metal they should have been able to see with ease. It also floats to the surface right after they proclaim they can't see the wreck.

The waves on the water planet also come from absolutely nowhere, are only visible when the plot requires them to be, despite being so large massive they can be seen from orbit. Also, when the crew is digging around in the water, there is no way the probe debris would be that close together with waves that powerful tossing it around. Finally, when the crew is looking for the probe wreckage, they proclaim they should be right on top of it, when their root steps on it and digs it out... at which point the camera pans to reveal that they're ''surrounded'' by brightly-painted pieces of metal they should have been able to see with ease.

** Also, after [[spoiler: essentially killing Cooper, he tries to stay and watch, but admits he can't do it. He then tries to tell Cooper he'll stay on the comms and talk to him so he's not alone as he dies - but again, he realizes he can't listen to Cooper die, and turns off the comms.

* ArcWords: Dylan Thomas' poem [[Literature/DoNotGoGentleIntoThatGoodNight "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night"]].
** Also, "90 percent" (referring to TARS's honesty setting, with the explanation that BrutalHonesty is not always the way to go, and the subsequent agreement among the crew to stick by this).

* DirtyCoward: [[spoiler:Dr. Mann. He knowingly forges data about the planet he's hibernating on because it turned out to be uninhabitable and he was too scared to perform a HeroicSacrifice.]] And the film uses its "one F-word per PG-13 film" to the most beautiful effect after it's revealed:

* SpaceshipSlingshotStunt: The ''Endurance'' slingshots the black hole in order to get up to the speed needed for the onward flight to Edmunds' planet.
** Also, before the arrival at the wormhole, they make a flyby of Mars, which could have slightly given it velocity.

** From the robots shaped like [[TheMonolith monoliths]] to the score, the film is a love letter to ''[[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey 2001: A Space Odyssey]]''. Even some of the dialog from [[spoiler:Dr. Mann]] is oddly similar to that of HAL's. [[spoiler: It's a bit of foreshadowing that Mann is going to be the character that will cause problems later on, rather than TARS and CASE that audiences would be expecting.]] Then there's an In-Universe example of the wise-cracking robot making a joke about blowing the team out of the airlock.

** There is also no realistic way the solid surface of the water planet would be that smooth, if there are tidal and rotational forces as powerful as what there would need to be for waves that big. The probe debris being that close together is also extraordinarily unlikely, especially since it was all invisible a moment before it.

* BehindTheBlack: The movie takes this to utterly absurd degrees on the water planet. There is absolutely no way the crew couldn't have seen [[spoiler: the massive wave coming. It should have been visible from the moment they entered the atmosphere.]]
