Finding Nemo picture

Factual error: When the fish tank has been cleaned by the newly installed laser fish cleaner, the machine states that the water temperature is '82°.' In Australia the Celsius scale is used; therefore, it should be about '28°.' Australia is 100% metric and has been since 1974! Nobody in Australia - nobody, anywhere, any time since 1974, uses imperial measures. There is absolutely no question of the dentist having an imperial thermometer or expressing himself in° Fahrenheit. It is actually illegal to import or sell any instrument using 'Imperial' scales. You couldn't buy a Fahrenheit thermometer if you tried. (01:14:30)

The Even Stevens Movie picture

Factual error: While the Stevens family were on the plane they could see the island from the window and it was a small and "green" piece of land. However during the movie there is a scene meant to be taken at the same island which shows the recording studio, personnel and extras of the Family Fakeout reality show and you can see that it is in a wide and open space. This place couldn't be seen by the family when they were on the plane.

(00:47:20)

Holes picture

Factual error: Stanley's parents say they can't afford a lawyer, and go to court without one. A lawyer should've been provided for them free of charge, as it's one of your rights, which he would've been read when he was arrested.

Suggested correction: After Stanley's grandfather says that they cannot afford a lawyer, Stanley's mother says, "we don't need a lawyer, Stanley will just tell the truth." Although Stanley does have the right to counsel, you can represent yourself in court, (or in this case if you are a minor, your parents can represent you in court) this is called "pro se."

Abraham Lincoln said something to the effect, "He who acts as his own attorney has a fool for a client." Yes, one can act as his/her own attorney, but the court/judge will generally strongly advise against doing so.

Rugrats Go Wild! picture

Factual error: This mistake happens in the scene where Nigel and the babies are trapped in the bathysphere underwater, and Nigel is on the radio, chatting with Marianne. Nigel reports: "Well, one little girl is rather pouty, and someone needs a diaper change." However, it has been pointed out in episodes of 'The Wild Thornberries' that Nigel is from England. Even though Rugrats Go Wild was produced in the United States, Nigel should've used the word 'nappy' instead of 'diaper'. (01:08:35)

The picture he showed them is not on the same page as that line in the book "Green Eggs and Ham". It only comes in about ten pages later.
