What Happens in Vegas picture

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.

Made of Honor picture

Factual error: When Tom calls Hannah from New York (and she is in Scotland) there is still bright daylight in New York. When Hannah answers she says it is 3am in Scotland. With a time difference of only 5 hours, this would mean it would be 10pm in New York and therefore dark.

Wall-E picture

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)

Mamma Mia! picture

Factual error: When you first see Sam he is supposed to be in America, but when you see out of the window as he is leaving, you can see the Gherkin building in London. He is actually in the Lloyd's Building, but to add to the illusion of being in America, he is picked up by a Yellow Cab.

Chaos Theory picture

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.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button picture

Factual error: Benjamin leaves his family at some point after his daughter's first birthday (1970), and definitely before her second birthday. But a 1973-1977 El Camino is parked in front of their house as he rides away on his motorcycle. (02:24:15)

Nights in Rodanthe picture

Factual error: In the scene about driving to the guest house in Rodanthe, Dr. Flanner is depicted crossing a large bridge after taking a ferry. This is impossible. There is no large bridge of any kind between the ferry on the southern coast of Hatteras Island and Rodanthe, located to the north, mid-way on the island. The bridge shown was actually the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge, a two-mile span connecting Hatteras Island to the northern Outer Banks, which is the direction the character was headed, meaning he went past Rodanthe several miles earlier. Maybe he missed it in the fake sand storm.

Sex Drive picture

Factual error: When we see the impression from the radiator cap that shot into Ian's forehead, it says 'HOT'. Since the word 'HOT' was written correctly on the radiator cap, the word on his forehead should be backwards and read 'TOH', not 'HOT'.
