Groundhog Day picture

Factual error: The sun is up when the alarm clock goes off at 6AM. On that latitude, in early February, it'd be dark outside.

Suggested correction: On that latitude on the 2nd of February it will be what they call "Nautical twilight" at 6AM. That ain't dark, but quite light already. As you can see in the movie, its correct. The movie was shot in Illinois, which is about the same latitude.

For Punxsutawney on February 2nd, "Nautical Twilight" is from 6:23am to 6:56am, and "Astronomical Twilight" is from 5:51am to 6:23am (sunrise is 7:25am), so at 6am there would be just a hint of slight brightening in the sky, and no usable light hitting the ground. Nothing like what Phil sees outside his window. That said, the amount of light shown is a necessary artistic change for the plot of the movie so while technically incorrect, I don't really consider a "mistake."

Hocus Pocus picture

Other mistake: After the Sanderson sisters are done sucking the life out of Emily Binx, they do a little dance thing after they become younger. When either Winifred or Mary swings past her, Emily's leg moves even though she's supposed to be dead.
