Factual error: Basic physics - Hancock throws Michel from a dead stop to above cloud level in about eleven seconds. The clouds are bog standard cumulus which form at around 7,000 metres in temperate zones. This means that Michel accelerates to about 700 metres per second instantly, from a dead stop. Obviously he cannot accelerate during his ascent, so his starting speed has to be at least that. (In fact he would have to start his ascent much, much faster than 700 metres per second as he would be constantly decelerating due to gravity and air resistance, but it will do as a start point.) Michel accelerates from 0 to 2,520 kilometres per hour - twice the speed of sound - in zero seconds. He would be accelerating at around 5000 Gs, turning him into a very long streak of fine, pink mist.
Factual error: All the Cisco VoIP phones seen in the film have the booting Cisco logo on them and would not work due to no connection.
Factual error: In the scene when everyone is in the white Hummer, the vehicle is moving north on the Las Vegas Strip; on the right is Bally's and the Flamingo, with Treasure Island straight ahead in the distance. Yet a few seconds later, when Joy asks the driver to let them out, they are in front of the fountains at Bellagio, which indicates that they are now travelling south on the Strip - yet we never see the Hummer change direction or turn around.
Factual error: A video is shown of Derek Huff singing "Ice Ice Baby" at a school talent show that took place when his brother Brennan was 17. Robert states his desire to retire in "in two years," in 2010, making the movie's setting 2008. Brennan is 39 in the film, placing the talent show 22 years ago in 1986. The song "Ice Ice Baby", recorded by Vanilla Ice, came out in the summer of 1990.
Factual error: As a trash compactor Wall-E does not function logically. When he fills his chest compartment with garbage and runs his internal compactor, the cube that exits his body is the same volume as the trash he puts in, despite that trash having been compacted. He does not add extra trash to fill the empty space after running the compactor - there are three scenes that show him filling up only once with loose garbage and then ejecting a densely compacted cube. (00:02:30)
Factual error: In the hotel bar just after his lecture, Frank and his buddy are talking. Frank says that his wife "set the clock forward" (and thus he was late for the lecture on efficiency). His buddy asks: "she actually set the clock forward?" Ryan responds "she set it forward." Thus, he should have been early, and not late for his lecture. She should have set the clocks backwards to make him late.
Factual error: Near the beginning of the film, Calico is sitting with a cat on his right shoulder. Their reflection is shown in the glasses of a man directly opposite. The reflection shows Calico and the cat in the same position instead of being reversed, as a reflection would be. (00:04:30)
Factual error: When Dodge and Lexie are in the building running from the police, you see an exit sign. This movie is set in the 1920's, before exit signs were invented.
Factual error: In Federal Reserve cash processing facilities, multiple denominations of money are never allowed to mingle.
Factual error: When Chuck is stapling fliers to the telephone poles, the tree behind Vanessa has changed colors for Fall, but still has a lot of orange leaves. The scene takes place after Christmas. In Pittsburgh, PA, the leaves are long gone by December.
