The Polar Express

Factual error: When hero boy and girl and Billy are on the runaway car at the north pole, they crash into the stopper at the end of the tracks. They are flung backwards when in reality, due to inertia, they should have been flung forward into the guard rail.

Factual error: At the end of the movie when they drop off the kid. As the train slows you see steam coming from each of the cars. Steam should only be coming from the main locomotive, where the boiler is, so there's no reason why steam is coming from each car unless its powered but it's not.
