”Girl, Interrupted (1999) is set in 1967. Some of the women leave the hospital and want to get jobs at Walt Disney World in Florida. They will have a very long wait, as Walt Disney World did not open until 1971, four years later.” —Ben
'Clash of the Titans'
”In the new Clash of the Titans remake (with mini-skirted Sam Worthington), it bugs the hell out of me that Zeus’s eagle is a bald eagle. Bald eagles are not native to the Mediterranean! Golden eagles are! Not that that’s the only screw-up in that movie, but it really bothered me when I saw it for the first time.” —Panter_dragoon
'When Harry Met Sally'
”In When Harry Met Sally, the title characters are supposed to be driving from Chicago to New York. But a shot of them on Lake Shore Drive shows them clearly heading south towards downtown Chicago from the north side — which means they are heading to the University of Chicago, not away from it.” —MCH
'In and Out'
”The movie In and Out turns on Kevin Kline’s character getting ‘outted’ at the Oscars by a former student in his acceptance speech. One week later, Kline’s Mr. Brackett ‘comes out’ at his wedding. Despite being fired by the school’s principal shortly after the ceremony, Mr. Brackett chooses to attend the school’s graduation ceremony THE FOLLOWING DAY. Now, I confess that some schools use different calendars, but is anyone aware of a school that holds its graduation ceremony in either late February or early March, which is when the Oscars take place?” —Kevin Samples
”Famous scene from The Graduate. When the Dustin Hoffman character is driving back to Berkeley to get Elaine, he is on the top level of the Bay Bridge. Problem is, the top level goes to San Francisco. Pretty scenery, but wrong direction.” —Guest13
”Moneyball takes place in 2002, but the song the daughter sings (‘The Show’) was not released until 2008.” —Jim
”The movie Outbreak is about a virus that came from Africa, specifically Zaire. The monkey they chose to star in it is a South American capuchin.” —Sunfleck
'The Wedding Planner'
”In The Wedding Planner, Matthew McConaughey’s character throws out all but the brown M&Ms because he says they have less artificial coloring, since chocolate’s already brown. But M&Ms are all candy coated, so they ALL have artificial coloring! They wasted all those M&Ms!” —Guest
”In Titanic, Kate Winslet shows Cal her paintings by Monet and Picasso, including ”Les Demoiselles d’Avignon,” which currently hangs in MOMA. Unless someone saved them while the ship was sinking (which I doubt), they would be at the bottom of the ocean (which they aren’t).” —Jared 4ever1
'Never Been Kissed'
”The first one that always comes to mind is in Never Been Kissed. Drew Barrymore and the Denominators are at some school fair, and they have a sign that is supposed to be Pi — but only the 3.14 part is correct. Every number afterwards is wrong. Why bother putting more numbers if you aren’t going to look up the right ones?” —Stef280
