Hercules picture

Factual error: When Young Hercules makes the pillars fall in a Domino effect, they go both ways. However, if this were to happen, they would stop the domino effect when they reach the entrance to the market, which doesn't have pillars. The pillars are not in a circle, so there's no way they can both stop at the top of the ring, where the pot seller is. The only way for this to work is if Hercules started the Domino effect at the entrance of the market, with pillars directly across from each other, which he doesn't.

Suggested correction: He throws the pillar he holds towards the opposite side causing it to fall as well.

Flubber picture

Factual error: In the scene where the Professor Phillip first sees his creation (Flubber), he states that Flubber is 77 degrees Kelvin. Theoretically speaking, 77 degrees Kelvin is extremely cold, about -195 degrees Celsius (or -320 degrees Fahrenheit). The professor was handling Flubber with his bare hand at one point so he should've acquired one heck of a cold burn.

Leave It to Beaver picture

Factual error: At the end of the movie, Wally pushes Kyle into the big vat of fudge after he made fun of the Beaver. When fudge is in liquid form, it is extraordinarily hot, and would have burned the child severely.

Factual error: When the girls are heading to the Albert Hall, they take a very bizarre route. For them to cross Tower Bridge and pass Battersea Power Station, they would have to travel right through the centre of London, where the Albert Hall is located.

Cats Don't Dance picture

Factual error: As Danny arrives in Hollywood at the beginning of the film, the Hollywood sign can be seen. The film is set in 1939 so the sign should still read Hollywoodland, as it did until 1949. (00:03:00)

Bean picture

Factual error: The establishing shot of the film shows an art gallery with the subtitle 'The Royal National Gallery, London'. Not only is there no such museum (its closest match being simply the 'National Gallery'), but the shot actually shows the Tate Britain, complete with visible red banner outside saying 'Tate Gallery'.
