Sabrina

Factual error: When David talks to Linus about the consequences of calling off his engagement with Elizabeth he says that their father would take to the bottle and smoke six coronas. Throughout the movie the old Larrabee smokes one churchill after another, but not a single corona, which is significantly shorter than a churchill. (01:02:05)

Factual error: At the beginning, when Sabrina describes the Larrabee family, she says that David is listed as a $600 deduction on Linus' income tax return. Two problems: 1) Shortly after Sabrina goes to Paris, Linus is shown sending David a memo to remind him that he is a junior partner in the family company, and is eligible for retirement - based on his one year with the company. 2) Both David and Linus still live with their parents. If David could be claimed as a dependent, I should think it would be by his parents.

Other mistake: In analogy to David's mishap with the champagne glasses old Mr. Larrabee crushes an olive jar when he sits down. However, in contrast to David he puts the jar into the front pocket of his pants, and olive jars don't break even if you sit on them (remember what he did to one when he tried to get the last olive out.).

Linus Larrabee: How would you do it? You can't even get a little olive out of a jar.
