Fargo

Factual error: Several times during the highway scenes if you look closely you can see that some of the cars and trucks are early 90s models even though it's supposed to be 1986 or 1987.

Factual error: This film takes place in 1987, but when Norm Gunderson is talking to Marge about his paintings, he mentions a 29 cent stamp. 29 cent stamps weren't introduced until 1991.

Factual error: Per the opening credits, the movie is set in 1987, but when Carl leaves the airport parking garage, the billboard in front of him shows Northwest's "Bowling Shoe" livery which was not introduced until 1989.
