Trivia: During an appearance on "The Chef Show," Gwyneth Paltrow revealed to Jon Favreau that she had no idea she appeared in this movie. Given how secretive Marvel is about their film productions, she most likely thought the scene she was filming was for an Avengers movie.

Factual error: The ferry splits in half down the middle, enough so the water is flooding in dramatically as the split grows. There is no possible way that the two halves of the ferry could have remained afloat like that. It would have sunk immediately. Then, as Iron Man "welds" the two halves back together, the ferry is afloat at the same waterline as before the incident, certainly not feasible with all the water it took on.

Suggested correction: You're forgetting all the cars that the ferry lost. This would even out the weight to roughly what it was before.
