Movie Quotes: The President of the United States: Listen up! I'm not going to go down as the President who was in office when the world came to an end, so somebody think of something, and think of it fast!
The President of the United States: That is a good cup of joe.
Crazy Credits: We know about 2 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
During the closing credits, there is an additional scene in the War Room where the President prepares a latte for General Monger and pushes the wrong big red button. After hastily saying something about a contingency plan, he sticks his head seemingly out of the screen to address the audience: “Anyone want to freeze my head? Anyone?”
Goofs: We know about 9 goofs. Here comes one of them:
Errors in geography: Susan lifts Derek out of his Modesto, California TV station whose call letters start with “W.” Since Modesto is west of the Mississippi, the call letters should start with “K.”
Trivia: There are 26 entries in the trivia list – like these:
- The fighter jets are F-14 Tomcats and the helicopters are AH-64 Apaches.
- During the jet fighter attack on the alien robot one of the missiles is emblazoned with the logo “E.T. Go Home” and is accompanied by a musical burst from John Williams' score from the same movie: E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982).
- The large aircraft used to transport the monsters to San Francisco is based on an actual Guppy aircraft. The first Guppy was built in 1962 for NASA by Aero Spacelines of California to transport spacecraft components.
