Zoolander
Zoolander mistake picture

Factual error: There is one scene towards the end when Matilda is talking to her assistant and two clocks showing the times of Tokyo and Hong Kong are visible on the wall behind. In reality Tokyo is one hour ahead of Hong Kong, but the clock clearly shows Hong Kong as one hour ahead of Tokyo. The Frankfurt clock is also an hour slow, assuming the Chicago clock is the correct one. (01:11:05)

Factual error: They show the clock on the wall at 6:17pm, but when Matilda is talking to Archie in the office, the L.A. clock says 5:17pm. If they are in New York it would be 8:17pm. (01:06:45 - 01:07:30)

Factual error: The film's plot revolves around killing the prime minister of Malaysia because he wants to ban child labour. Malaysia already has laws against child labour, and has since its time as a British colony.

Continuity mistake: When Zoolander, Hansel and Matilda are drinking the tea near the end of the movie, the "steam" in Zoolander's cup keeps on changing to from overflowing the cup, to half way down and none. This is without ever refilling his cup. He can even be seen blowing some of the steam out and next thing it's full again. (00:58:00)

Mugatu: Let me show you Derelicte. It is a fashion, a way of life inspired by the very homeless, the vagrants, the crack whores that make this wonderful city so unique.
