Pocahontas picture

Continuity mistake: Early in the movie when Thomas falls overboard, John Smith ties a rope around his waist (00:02:56) and jumps in after him. Thomas is very far away from the ship (00:03:12). But when the men pull John and Thomas up, John is holding on to the rope with one hand and the end is left dangling (00:03:36). One of the men who pulled them up then coils the rope with a mere two coils (00:03:48), not nearly long enough to have reached Thomas while he was overboard. In the same scene, when we are viewing the men pulling John and Thomas up from above (00:03:38) there is no extra rope at their feet as there should have been for such a long rope.

Big Hero 6 picture

Factual error: When Honey first meets Hiro, she is rolling a solid ball of Tungsten Carbide that is about 2-3' in diameter. Honey claims the ball is 400 lbs. Tungsten Carbide is very dense, around the density of gold, but much harder. The specific density is 0.54 lbs per cubic inch. If the sphere was only 2 feet in diameter - it would weigh approximately 3,619 lbs - or about 1.5 tons. If it was 3 feet in diameter it would weigh an astonishing 12,200 lbs - or just over 6 tons. Honey would not be able to roll it around on the floor as easily as she appears to do in the movie.
