The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Character mistake: When Gaby's car becomes wedged between two buildings, she says, "Good plan. All we have to do is get over two twenty-foot walls and a minefield." While minimal backstory is given, I think it reasonable to assume that she has lived in what was East Germany all her life. It is thus highly unlikely that she would express a measurement in English units (being bilingual doesn't mean you automatically convert measurements). She would have said something like "six meters."

Factual error: During the 4x4 chase across the island, the Land Rover used is a modern variant, not in production in 1963.

Factual error: At the motor racing scene when the heroes first meet the villains there is an Aston Martin DB6, which is at least 3 years ahead of the film's setting.
