* SuperPersistentPredator: The kids might wonder if the New Yorker among them used to throw rocks at these wolves' mother.


Added DiffLines:

* WorstAid: Notable for depicting things that are tilted just enough to be dangerous:
** The IntimateHealing scene could be quite a bit more intimate/awkward. Sam should lose ''all'' of his clothes (keeping wet underwear on is a poor idea) and Laura, whose clothes are also soaked from the rainstorm and splashing around, should be mostly skin-to-skin. As depicted this wastes a lot of body heat.
** Laura not checking her cut after having been jabbed in filthy storm surge water, then the others later pursuing what antibiotics might be available on the ship once it has developed a serious infection. "Lucky" doesn't begin to describe the antibiotic both working and Laura surviving with no ill effects. It did however almost get three other people killed.
** The NYPD officer leading a large number of civilians - including sick, injured and presumably children - off into frigid conditions with no real preparations or supplies. This would have ended poorly even without the Super Freeze of Doom. What happens when that inevitable first person cannot keep up with the move?

* DisproportionateRetribution: In one scene, Jack questions his son about his "F" on a test. Sam explains that his teacher thinks he was cheating because he didn't show his work since he did it all in his head. Jack scoffs on how can the teacher fail him for being smarter than him, which Sam said the same thing to his teacher. He got the "F" as a result.
