The Bucket List

Factual error: When Cole and Carter are skydiving, there are a number of inaccuracies. First, Carter and his instructor jump well before Cole to put a safe distance between them. However, Cole and his instructor immediately catch up to Carter and then match their speed. This could be achieved by skilled jumpers, but not by instructor-novice pairs. Second, the men have a conversation while free-falling, which is completely impossible. Third, Carter pulls his own rip-cord (too early) and Cole's instructor yells at him to pull his own cord before it's too late. In reality, the instructor always carries the chute and pulls the cord for a first-time jumper, for exactly these reasons. (00:40:30)


Factual error: Jack Nicholson's ashes are placed on the mountain in a 1 pound coffee can. Cremated humans remains will not fit into a 1 pound can. It takes at least a 3 pound can and it will be within about 1/2 to 1 inch from the top.
