Factual error: In the beginning, when the President and First Lady disembark Marine One and walk toward the White House, you see the White House. The problem is that it's a set and only the center of it appears. The East and West portion of the main mansion are just sunny blue skies. (00:01:50)

Factual error: When the real president is shown in a coma in the White House basement, he is on a ventilator (a breathing machine). Ventilators require that the patient be intubated (a tube placed into their windpipe) and cannot work with an oxygen facemask which the president has. (01:02:40)

2

Factual error: At the beginning when Dave is imitating the president in the car dealership commercial, he's talking about the specials on the Geo Storm and Geo Storm convertibles. Geo never made a Storm convertible. The only convertible car sold under the Geo nameplate was a convertible version of the Geo Metro, based on the Suzuki Swift.

Factual error: Near the start of the movie Kevin Kline as the real president gets off the helicopter while the rotor is still spinning. The president never gets off Marine One until the rotor has stopped.

Factual error: Nance give the President fertility beads from the King of Togo. Togo is not a Kingdom - it's a Republic.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film, Dave Kovic addresses Congress, just before he has his "second stroke." The camera often shows the congressman in their seats, as well as shots which show the balcony, where spectators and the press sit. If you watch closely you'll note that in some shots the balcony is jammed packed with people and in others it is completely empty. (01:31:20)

Question: Is there an alternate ending? Did Ving Rhames ever wear a sweater in the last scene?

Answer: I have repeatedly told people he wore a sweater. There has to be one, more original, that has him in a sweater. I remember almost like a Easter yellow.

It should be noted Rhames does wear what looks like a yellow sweater in "Pulp Fiction." Although I wouldn't call it Easter Yellow.
