The Terminal

Amelia (Zeta-Jones) asks a favour from her boyfriend and gets Viktor a day pass to New York. Unfortunately it needed to be signed by the airport official and he refused. The war in his country was over and the official gave him tickets to return to his own country. Viktor, however, makes a run for the doors leading to American soil. Viktor gets the last signature, he doesn't end up with Amelia (who goes back to her old boyfriend), and goes back to Krakozhia.

Revealing mistake: About 30 seconds into the movie, when the camera is panning down the flight status board, the letters are flipping through to form the correct words. However, the board is digitally animated, and some of the sequences of letters scrolling (such as one square going from L to M to N) loop without making any sense, like in the line above the yellow "The /Terminal" (U, V, W, U, V, W, U, V, W.). (00:00:30)
