Forrest Gump

Other mistake: Forrest begins his run across America the day President Carter collapses in Maryland. This is October 1, 1979. When he stops running, he says: 'I had run for three years, two months, fourteen days, and sixteen hours.' Some time later, he gets Jenny's letter - the day President Reagan is attacked. This is March 30, 1981. So, he only ran for one and a half years.

Suggested correction: Forrest actually started running on July 5th 1976. Jenny and he were washing a bicentennial fireworks display the night before he started running. The news piece on Carter's collapse is the real error.
