Common mistakes

Factual error: Military characters who deliver incorrect or inaccurate salutes to each other. Real military personnel know how to deliver a proper salute.

Factual error: In one scene of the Omaha beach landing, an American soldier is wearing eyeglasses with heavy black frames, which were issued to U.S. troops during the 1950's and 1960's. Eyeglasses issued to U.S. military personnel in World War 2 had thin metallic silver frames.

Audio problem: During the firefighting scene in Sainte-Mère-Église, when the French townspeople and the German soldiers notice the American paratroopers landing, a German fires his rifle but no gunshot is heard.

Scott215

Revealing mistake: In the Orne bridge attack, a wounded British paratrooper rolls a grenade over the bridge wall to a walkway where some German soldiers are, the grenade landing in the middle of the walkway. The explosion of the grenade, however, comes from the bridge wall to the right, presumably where the pyrotechnics were placed for the grenade explosion.

Stupidity: The Engineer and Fireman of the Polar Express train crew should have known better than to not bend back the the metallic prongs of the cotter pin, which would have prevented the cotter pin from coming loose and causing all those problems in the driving of the train.

Suggested correction: As you yourself stated, the whole thing is likely a dream, where "normal" reality doesn't apply. In the "real world", the train would never be able to do any of the things that it does in the film.

Dream or not, it is still a stupidity of the train crew to not secure a pin that could work itself free of the controls of the locomotive.

Dreams are often unrealistic. There is no mistake.

New this month The entry doesn't say anything about the entire trip to the North Pole being a dream.

Trivia: In the car holding all the toys slated for recycling, one of the marionettes is of Jessica Rabbit, from another Robert Zemeckis film, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?"
