Jackie (2016)

Factual error: Jackie is handling medication vials and taking a pill. Some of the vials have childproof "palm and twist" caps, but they were not invented until 1967. (00:48:00 - 00:49:00)

Top Gun (1986)

Factual error: When Goose takes the photo of the MIG's cockpit, the type of Polaroid camera he is using has an acoustic auto-focus system. It will not focus beyond clear glass or plastic because the ultrasonic pulse bounces off the glass and not off whatever is behind it. Therefore the photo would be focused on Goose's own canopy and the MIG's cockpit instruments (of interest to Charlie) would be very blurry. Perhaps that is why the photo is not shown. Also: Goose proclaims the photo great immediately after it comes out of the camera. In fact it takes a minute or so to develop and become visible.

Dave (1993)

Factual error: Near the start of the movie Kevin Kline as the real president gets off the helicopter while the rotor is still spinning. The president never gets off Marine One until the rotor has stopped.
