Factual error: The baby is expanded to approximately fifty times his height, width and girth but it's explicitly stated that he retains his orginal mass. This means he will have the same volume as one hundred and twenty five thousand babies of his original size, but will weigh the same as before he was enlarged! That child is going to weigh much less than the volume of air he displaces. He's going to float away.
Factual error: At the very end of the movie, the Pope gives the nuns a standing ovation. The other people seated in the box with him should have immediately risen at this time. Instead, the man seated to his left looks up at him, seeing that the pontiff has stood, but makes no movement to join him on his feet.DavidK93
Factual error: In the final game when Kit comes to bat, we get a quick glimpse of the right field foul line and there is an umpire standing on the line behind first base. In a previous shot, we see an umpire standing on the left field foul line behind third base. In the 1940s, three umpires were used for the majority of the games. With a runner on first base, as is the situation here, the umpire would position himself between first and second base. During the shots of Kit running the bases after she hit the ball, we see no other umpire between first and second base or anywhere near second base.
Factual error: The old man is supposed to have accidentally ended up at Rita and Peter's wedding by just "getting on a train," and finding himself in Lake Forest (a far northern suburb of Chicago.) But he started out in Berwyn (a western suburb), and in order to get to Lake Forest from Berwyn, you have to get on one train, get off in downtown Chicago, walk several blocks, and then get on an entirely different line going to Lake Forest. In other words, not something you can "accidentally" find yourself doing, but something you have to know where you are going in order to do.
Factual error: In the Jeopardy scene, Gloria takes the category, "Foods that start with Q," but never says for $100.
Factual error: When Congressman Johnson is in a meeting with Pro-Bono advocate, Celia Kirby, he brings the topic of auto insurance up and asks her assistant, Ira, how much he pays. Ira states he has a '82 Dodge Dart. Dodge did not make an automobile of that particular model, in that year. (00:51:15)
Factual error: In the scene where Redford's character enters through the secured entrance with the stolen key-card, it shows a printer printing the time he entered. Then after his walking and getting up to the top floor and trying to get past the voice verification system and having to do it twice, they show the same printer printing the time he passed that checkpoint, and it was only one minute later than the previous time. Even though seconds are not shown, all of these actions must surely have taken longer than 1 minute and 59 seconds.gawdsmak
