Factual error: Robert McNamara is wearing a multi colored Polo shirt talking to Mrs. Graham in 1971. The Ralph Lauren Company did not make the shirts until 1972.
Factual error: The underground station shown is not St. James Park, which would be 1 stop east on the District line. St. James Park has green and yellow tiles on the wall indicating District and Circle lines. The platform in the film has black and brown tiles, indicating Northern and Bakerloo lines, neither of which serve St. James Park.Crusoe

Factual error: When they go to visit the Queen, the Union flag is being flown above Buckingham Palace. The Union flag is only flown when the Queen is not in residence.

Factual error: Performing for Queen Victoria is the famous opera composer Giacomo Puccini. This happens during her sojourn in Florence in 1888. Puccini was born in 1858, so he was barely thirty years of age, but the actor portraying him, Simon Callow, is in his late 60s (and it shows). Moreover, he is presenting his latest creation "Manon Lescaut"; in 1888 he hadn't even started working on it.Sammo
Factual error: In the beginning of the movie, during Lewis Carol's visit to America, you can hear them playing the melody from the song "The Yankee Doodle Boy" written by James Cohan in 1904. This was 64 years after the events in the movie. In the ending credits they cite this as "Yankee Doodle Dandy" which was written many years before. But, that was not the melody that was being played.
Factual error: When Leavey begins her training at Parris Island in 2001, she and all the other Marines are wearing MARPAT (Marine Pattern).

Factual error: For a movie about the Amazon Basin, it is too bad they pictured many birds from the zoo or computer generated "who knows what." They used a Great Hornbill and African vultures (griffons or white backed vultures) - not South American. They also used computer generated white birds flying over River in "V." Could have been a flock of Cattle Egrets, but just was not right for them.Hall Boy
