Die Hard: With a Vengeance

Other mistake: When John and Zeus are being chased by the German guys in the car, John asks Zeus to pull out all the fuses in the fuse-box. The next shot is a quick shot of the speedometer etc. and it is lit up. Surely if all the fuses were out it wouldn't be lit?

Suggested correction: No, the car would interpret missing fuses as blown fuses and would display a light to highlight the error.

In German cars, the lid of the fuse box shows a table listing the purpose of each fuse. The engine control unit, fuel pump and the dashboard also have fuses that you should avoid to pull.

Other mistake: The winch attached to the front of the black pickup isn't particularly big, and its size governs how long the cable can be. From a side shot of the winch cable stretching from the pickup to the boat, there's no way the cable being shown comes from the winch on that truck: it's too long, it would never spool back onto the winch.

Factual error: When the collected bad guys are at the "North of the Border" truck stop, a subtitled henchman tells Jeremy Irons that the helicopter will be ready in ten minutes. But the confused fellow actually says, "in zwanzig minuten," which means TWENTY minutes.

Zeus: Didn't I hear you say you didn't even like your brother?
Simon: There's a difference, you know, between not liking one's brother and not caring when some dumb Irish flatfoot drops him out of a window.

Trivia: Someone asked: Has anyone EVER figured out the math to that damn water-in-a-bottle-diffuse-the-bomb riddle? I actually have, in case anyone's wondering about it. If I remember right, they've got a 5, a 3, and they need 4. Fill the five, tip it into the 3, leaving 2. Empty out the three, and put the 2 in it. Then fill the five, and use that jug to fill up the remainder of the 3, which will leave 4 in the 5 gallon jug. Another possible way to do this: You fill up the 3 and tip these three gallons into the 5. Then you fill up the 3 and use this to fill up the 5. This leaves you with one in the 3 and five in the 5. Then you empty the 5 and tip the one from the 3 over, then fill up the 3. Then you've got three in the 3 and one in the 5. After you've tipped over the three this will leave you with four in the 5.
