New this month Factual error: While handling the ignition coil cable to the distributor cap, Joe Pesci tells De Niro that the timing chain needs adjustment in his truck. The timing chain on the Chevy OHV 6 cylinder in this scene is behind the water pump and a cover. It would have been a several hour job to replace, not possible to adjust.
Factual error: From the continuity of the movie it appears that the response from LIMA came within a few minutes of the transmission from Mars. This would be impossible. Even if Mars and Neptune were on the same side of the Solar System, in a straight line, they would be 4 light-hours apart, meaning the replay could not be received less than 8 hours after transmission. There's no implication that they kept Brad Pitt sitting in a room for 8 hours waiting for a reply.
Factual error: Before the scene in the stable begins, John is pushed into the building by a series of cars cornering and ramming him. The order is given by two men speaking in Italian, but it's Italian with all the wrong cadence showing the words are not understood, and a pronunciation so bad words are barely recognizable - and wrong, like "Diteglie."

Factual error: The scene where Pluto gets burned takes place at the Santa Cruz Natural History Museum, directly east of the Beach Boardwalk. In order to drive to the boardwalk in the scene immediately afterward, the Wilsons would have to pass through the line of Tethers holding hands.
Factual error: She fires the entire magazine of a Glock into the alligator's mouth. When it is empty, rather than the slide locking back and the trigger freezing, there is an audible click every time she pulls the trigger. This could not happen.
