My Big Fat Greek Wedding mistake picture

Character mistake: In the opening scene where Toula describes her house, she says it is complete with "Corinthian columns." The columns on the house are of the "Ionic" style, not Corinthian.

Suggested correction: We see the car three times (getting in at wedding, on road, arriving at reception), and it is a Cadillac DeVille limo, about 1990 model year, in all three shots. Note the emblems on the hubcaps, tail lights and bumper.
