Jumanji picture

Factual error: When it's 1969 we see a boy (I'm not sure which one so you'll have to look) riding a Shwinn Sting-Ray Krate Grey. That bike didn't come out until 1971 and they only made them that one year. (00:02:45)

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie picture

There are also some cars that have right-hand steering wheels despite the story being set in California, and some Australian model traffic lights (foot-long black cover with a grey pole) can be seen when the Scorpion bot destroys a car in front of the rangers. (01:06:00)

Toy Story picture

Factual error: When the soldiers are asked to find out what gifts Andy is getting at his birthday party, the set out down stairs with half of a baby monitor. Well, any parent who owns one knows that there are 2 pieces to a baby monitor. One half (the larger half) is the receiving end (that takes in the noises) and a smaller half which is the transmitting part (the half that sends out the noises). The half that the soldiers take downstairs to talk through is the wrong half. They take the half that the noise comes OUT of. So, really, they should NOT be able to speak into this part - in real life, they'd hear what was happening up in Andy's room. (00:09:18)

The Nutcracker picture

Factual error: Many times in the film, the Nutcracker is shown to be standing at rest, but with its mouth open. It is at rest with nobody touching it, so its handle/lever would be in the down position by gravity. Yet the Nutcracker’s mouth is open. If a nutcracker is sitting at rest with the handle down, the mouth should be closed.

Cutthroat Island picture

Factual error: At one point in the film, Morgan calls out "Riflemen, to me!". The film is set in the late 17th century. Whilst rifling had been invented prior to this date, it was still rarely used except on the most expensive weapons, and even then mostly used by specialists. It is highly unlikely that all, if any, of the pirates would have been armed with them, especially in the close quarter fighting they would have been expecting. The pirates would be more likely to be armed with the more common smooth bored muskets of the period, so "Musketmen, to me!" would be much more likely to be correct.
