* TheyJustDidntCare: According to Creator/BenAffleck on the DVD commentary:
--> I asked Creator/{{Michael|Bay}} why it was easier to train oil drillers to become astronauts than it was to train astronauts to become oil drillers and he told me to shut to the fuck up. So, that was the end of that talk.
** Regarding the line of "they don't know jack about drilling":
---> I mean, this is a little bit of a logic stretch, let's face it. "They don't know jack about drilling"? How hard can it be? Aim the drill at the ground and turn it on.
** Despite the movie repeatedly telling the audience that this is a hurtling, spinning, out of control asteroid in outer space, zero gravity apparently does not exist on it, since the crew can walk inside the shuttle and on the surface as if they were on, well, Earth. Except when AJ, Bear, and Lev need to jump across a large canyon in an Armadillo. Then it ''does'' exist.
** The asteroid would have been easily visible to the naked eye long before 18 days before it collided with Earth.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Is Lev's [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} cookiness]] attributable to his [[GoMadFromTheIsolation having spent eighteen months alone on the space station]], or might he be on the autism spectrum?

* {{Anvilicious}}: '''''Lots''''' of comments are made about [[IWantMyJetpack how pathetic our space technology is]], and [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped how utterly screwed we'd be if it happened for real]]. Somewhat justified in that our poor ability to detect and almost total inability deal with a potential asteroid collision is sadly very much TruthInTelevision.

Added DiffLines:

* NarmCharm: The animal crackers scene. As silly as the dialogue is, it's actually kind of sweet.

** Speaking of 9/11, you see some of the meteor impacts leaving huge gaping holes in the original World Trade Center towers. After 9/11, those can be kinda hard to look ta.

** In the first ten minutes of the film, New York is decimated by a meteorite shower (see HarsherInHindsight). It's kind of worth mentioning that in the middle of this scene there's a cabbie that screams something with each impact: "Look at that! Whoa! We're at war! UsefulNotes/SaddamHussein's bombing us?" Oh, the innocent irony of 1990s catastrophe films. Made even more ironic by the fact that, despite Saddam Hussein's lack of involvement in 9/11, America still ended up going back to war with him less than a decade later.
** Very disturbing to see the original World Trade Center (Twin Towers) with huge gaping holes in them after the events of 9/11/2001.

* Accidental Innuendo: Harry's reaction to the crash-landing on the asteroid surface: "I blew the tranny." (Though actually referring to a vehicular transmission.)
