What Lies Beneath - Is the Bathtub Working Correctly?
To find this slip up, go to the scene in the movie where Michele Pfeiffer(I don't remember her screen name) is paralyzed in the bathtub. If you look at the front of the bathtub you can see that there is a drain, so that the water in the tub would never overflow or get very high.(There are many chances to see the drain)At one point where the water is filling up closer and closer to her head you can see that the water has gone above the drain, but the water isn't draining out of the tub. This might have happened when the water was half way covering her face.(I don't remember which water level exactly)

If you have ever been in a bathtub like that you would realize that it is not possible for the drain to handle the amount of water that is entering the bath tub. Of course, it would not have filled as fast, but that drain would not have saved her life. Sorry.

What this poster meant to say was there was an "overflow" drain. We all know bathtubs have drains, but the poster meant that the water should not have gotten that high because of the overflow mechanism. However, the water flowing into the tub from the faucet was far too much for the overflow to get rid of, thereby causing the water level to go over her nose at times. An overflow mechanism only really works if the tub is filled a little too much and it skims off the top to remove excess water, preventing it from spilling on the floor. If water is constantly coming in, it's really of no use to keep it from spilling over. This isn't a slip-up.

I totally agree that this lame film is beyond help. The tub clearly had an "overflow" as do all properly installed tubs.

maybe he jammed something in it so the water wouldn't drain out

There was a plug blocking the drain. I suggest you go watch that scene again.
