Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Factual error: Cameron tries to stop Ferris from borrowing his father's red sports car, explaining that it's an extremely rare and valuable '61 Ferrari 250 GT California. But the car itself is not a real Ferrari. It was manufactured by Modena Design and Development of El Cajon, California, and is a "Modena GT250" which strongly resembles the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder. Since the film makers were throwing the car out of a window, using a real Ferrari was 'cost-prohibitive'. Comparing the real Ferrari to the Modena, differences include the Moden's sharper body crease above the grille, the more steeply angled headlamp covers, higher-mounted emblem and counter-sunk hood scoop.

Factual error: The odometer only goes up by 10 miles between the time Cameron freaks out and when they're back in the garage, but they stop at a famous Chicago lighthouse when Cameron freaks out that actually is 1/2 hour outside the city.

Suggested correction: They took a detour to think at the lighthouse disregarding the distance, since at this point 30 extra miles isn't going to show against the damage already done.

Mistakes

Near the beginning of the movie there is a brief scene around the empty house. While the camera is in the kitchen you can see a reflection of one of the set guys moving in the fridge handle.

Trivia

Charlie Sheen (the guy in the police station) stayed awake for 2 days, so he could get the right look for the scene.
