Added DiffLines:

* RetroactiveRecognition: Creator/JonFavreau playing ejected-into-space astronaut, Gus Partenza.

Added DiffLines:

* OneSceneWonder: Creator/JamesCromwell as Senator Rittenhouse. He only appears in the scene where Jenny tracks him down for an interview but his performance does a great job of foreshadowing the disastrous news she's about to uncover.


* DeletedRole: Most of Dougray Scott's screentime was cut out. Including a romantic relationship subplot with Jenny Lerner.

Added DiffLines:

* TheWoobie: Sarah seems to really get it rough. First, she and her family are not selected in the survival lottery (in spite of her marrying her best friend, Leo to get in). And later, when Leo comes to her rescue on the crowded highway, they force her to leave them behind (and to take her baby brother with her), shortly before they are killed by the giant wave.
** Gus Partenza, the only astronaut who is left behind in space to die, after the unsuccessful attempt to destroy the asteroid.


* AwesomeMusic: While the melodrama in the film itself isn't everyone's cup of tea, James Horner's beautifully bittersweet score may have you reaching for the tissues, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPi0vTf75gU "Drawing Straws"]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEo1qDeSSdk "Goodbye and Godspeed"]] being good examples.

* ScienceMarchesOn: At the time the film was made, prevailing wisdom held that detonating nukes inside a comet or asteroid would cause it to break up into multiple disastrous bodies, while detonating them on its surface would convey enough thrust to deflect it.

* HilariousInHindsight: Morgan Freeman gives a Presidential speech about the comet with graphics of the solar system, complete with an analogy between colliding comets and balls bouncing against one another on a pool table. It's ''exactly'' like his later role as host of ''Through The Wormhole''. Later on, he also says he believes in God and that he believes God answers every prayer, even if the answer is sometimes "no"- since it's Morgan Freeman, [[Film/BruceAlmighty he should know.]]
