Wonder Boys

Factual error: In the film we can see the jacket that Marilyn Monroe was wearing the day she married Joe DiMaggio, only the colour is wrong. We are shown a dark black jacket, though it actually was a brown one. (00:18:25)

Revealing mistake: Michael Douglas pulls up to the curb to park his car. When he opens his door, it hits a fire hydrant, which moves! This is very easy to spot. (01:08:50)
