Traffic

Factual error: The Ohio Supreme Court does not meet in the State House, as portrayed in the movie. (00:07:40)

Factual error: Javier Rodriguez and the assassin light up a cigarette in a bar in San Diego. Smoking has been illegal in bars in California since 1998. This movie was released in 2001. (00:32:55)

Plot hole: Towards the end of the movie when Michael Douglas makes his speech at the White House, he is able to quietly walk out of the gates with no reporters anywhere trying to chase him down. Totally unrealistic (especially considering what had just happened). (00:03:03 - 02:13:40)
