Sixth Sense, The - Tower Clock
The scroll says "The Next Fall", and after Malcolm chases Cole to the church, the clock reads 5:50. No way is it that sunny and bright at either 5:50 a.m. or 5:50 p.m. ("Fall" being September 21 or later, when the shadows grow longer).

It says 5:50, because if you paid enough attention to the beginning, that's what time he died, and nothing changes through the movie from when he died. When he died, you never see him in any other clothes but the sweats he was wearing, or the suit. So why would it change the time he sees on his watch?

No kidding. As I write this comment, it is September 25, and it doesn't get dark in my neck of the woods until nearly 7:30 or so ...

There is plenty of time during the fall, usually at least a month, before daylight savings time is over. It's been a while since I've seen it, but if I remember correctly, the leaves are right for that time frame(early october) and anyway, at 5:50 pm daylight-savings time it would still be bright enough (I don't even remember it hardly ever being REALLY bright and sunny outside; always cloudy in the beginning wasn't it?)

I agree that this is NOT a slip up! they never said the end of fall, and day light savings does not change until well into that season. I think you will have to come up with a better mistake then that sorry. :(

This isn't exactly a slip considering fall shadows are arbitrary to their simply might be that way there.

Someone from the South write this slip-up? I've been places (admittedly not Philly) where it's still bright as heck at 11:30 pm. Of course, the navy's site ( lists sunset in Phily on Sept. 21, 2001 at 6:59 PM, EST. Seems to me, you can still get some pretty bright sunshine almost 2 hours before sunset. Call me bored, but you've got to got all the way to Nov. 22 to get sunset at 5:10 PM in Phily, according to the same site mentioned above, and, as any northerner knows, Nov. 22 is edging on winter, depending on when their first 10-inch snow falls.
