The X-Files Movie

Factual error: Dallas, Texas is not surrounded by desert mountains. This is a dumb tourist mistake; when that shot of downtown Dallas appeared on the screen audiences there groaned in unison.

Factual error: North Texas was never covered by glaciers. The glaciers never got south of Kansas. And there weren't any mountains in Dallas then, either.

Factual error: Mulder and Scully sneak into the morgue at Bethesda Naval Hospital to view the body of the dead fireman from the bomb blast. Mulder lifts the sheet back on the body to show that the man's tissue is "like jelly." Scully surmises there's been some kind of cellular breakdown, and then says the tissue is "completely edematous." However, Dr. Scully mispronounces "edematous" as ed-a-may-shuss. The correct pronunciation is i-dem-a-tuss.

Factual error: The savages shown in "North Texas - 20,000 B.C." look to be Neanderthals. Neanderthals were strictly Old World, although there may have been Native Americans around N. Texas then.

Factual error: The stamp of the scene says that it is Wilkes Land, Antarctica. Wilkes Land extends from Cape Hordern in 100°31' E to Pourquoi Pas Point in 136°11' E. However, the coordinates of the spaceship are 63°00' E, 83°00' S, so this place is located definitely outside the area of Wilkes Land.

Factual error: When the Smoking Man comes back to the base, in the first shot the tracks are shown, but they definitely do not belong to his snowcat but Mulder's. Only Mulder's snowcat has triangular-like shape of the tracks.
