Corrected entry: At the end of the movie the CIA helicopters are flying from DC to Baltimore. We see them over a wide stretch of water. Then there is a long sequence with McClane, and when we get back to the helicopters they are still over water. When you fly from DC to Baltimore you do not cross a long stretch of water.

Correction: In the Washington D.C.- Baltimore area there is a "No Fly Zone" that has been in effect since the late 1950's. The most recent edition is the Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) that extends from DC to literally the edge of Baltimore. Woodlawn is on the west side of Baltimore, but because of the radius of the no fly zone, the fastest way to get from DC would be to go east then follow the Chesapeake bay to Baltimore, over water almost the entire trip.


Corrected entry: In the scene when George and Clarence head towards town from the bridge, George is looking for his car, which crashed into a tree. George asks the owner of the house, "Where's my car? My car. I crashed it into this tree." And the home owner responds, "You must mean two other trees." There is only one tree.

Correction: The owner thinks George is drunk - he figured that George was seeing double and crashed his car somewhere else.


I've wondered about this for years and found this conversation tonight as I googled the question while watching the movie. Thank you so much for this answer. I could never get why the man said "two other trees" when there was one tree.

Why would he think George is drunk for simply asking where his car is? It's a major stretch to say the man thought George was seeing double. This line is a bona fide movie mistake.

Watch the scene. 1) George is raving about hitting the tree even though there is no damage. 2) The Home Owner is trying to smell George's breath. 3) "You must mean two other ***s" is a standard punchline indicating someone is drunk.
