* PhysicsGoof: The Earth is being destroyed because solar neutrinos are "mutating" into a form that heats the interior of the Earth like a microwave oven. In reality, solar neutrinos '''do''' mutate -- they change between electron, muon, and tau flavors during their travels in a process called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutrino_oscillations neutrino oscillation]]. However, '''none''' of these neutrino flavors is capable of interacting with the Earth's interior.

* RegionalRedecoration: Hoo-boy, [[UpToEleven where do we begin?]] Southern California is torn to shreds by an enormous earthquake, one big enough to rip open a new canyon and [[CaliforniaCollapse causes the fragmented land to sink into the ocean]]; Yellowstone national park is wiped out when the supervolcano erupts, Las Vegas is split in two by a huge fissure, and Hawaii is buried under miles of lava. However, the crowning moment has to be when ''the Earth's crust shifts.'' According to Adrian, it moves about 23 degrees to the southwest, which puts Wisconsin at the center of the new magnetic south pole. Conveniently, it also pushes the Himalayas close to the main characters. [[spoiler: And during the crust shift, the African continent somehow rises several thousand feet, which saves it from the floods.]]

** St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel in Rome, the latter complete with [[SistineSteal a crack opening up between Adam and God on the fresco ceiling]]. And the dome rolling away like it was a massive ball.

This movie is by [[Creator/RolandEmmerich the same guy]] who did ''Film/IndependenceDay'' and ''TheDayAfterTomorrow.'' (There's probably a pattern here.) At the time of the film's release, WordOfGod stated that this was to be his final disaster flick, so [[UpToEleven he tried as best as he could]] to pack enough StuffBlowingUp and MonumentalDamage into it to last a lifetime.

* TakeThatCritics: A subtle one can be found in the adoration John Cusack's character's SciFi book gets. In the movie, the book sells barely a dozen copies because critics found its ridiculously CosyCatastrophe view of the world to be insufferable and unrealistic, yet major characters (the president included!) find it be a source of great inspiration. Director Roland Emmerich also made ''TheDayAfterTomorrow'', which was criticized for being offensively preachy and silly in the levels of CosyCatastrophe it brought to the screen.
