Ghostbusters

Factual error: At the very end of the movie, Ray is telling Louis about the Tunguska Blast of 1909, but the famous blast actually occurred in 1908. Given his oft-demonstrated levels of knowledge, he'd know better. (01:37:38)

Factual error: When Mr. Peck comes to the Ghostbusters' building with the police and Con Ed, the NYPD captain is wearing a light blue shirt. All NYPD officers Lieutenant and above wear white shirts. Only patrolmen and sergeants wore the light blue shirt.

Factual error: When Dana first arrives at her apartment building, you can see a view of her getting ready to cross the street the front door from above, and the demon dog statue's head is in the shot, looking down. If that building is as high as they make it out to be, the distance between the dog, which is on the roof, and the street would be a lot more than it is in the shot. You probably wouldn't even be able to see Dana from that height.

Revealing mistake: When Dana is "strapped" to the chair and pulled into the kitchen, you can clearly see the track in the floor upon which the chair is riding. (00:51:50)
