Proof of Life (2000)

Other mistake: When Russell Crowe kills the bad guy just before the attack begins, he uses the serrated blade of a Leatherman tool to slit the guys throat. Any special forces soldier would carry and use a killing knife like a Gerber or Ka-bar, or at least use the standard blade on a Leatherman tool.

The Terminal (2004)

Other mistake: When Viktor is singing the Krakhozian national anthem his words are absolute gibberish and bear no resemblance to any Eastern European country's language.
