Arlington Road (1999)

1 factual error

Factual error: The scene where Michael frantically arrives at the FBI headquarters, he drives the Contour up over the movable vehicle barrier. The movable vehicle barriers that are in place at the FBI headquarters, both pre and post 9/11, are steel ramp type barriers angled upward toward the entering car and lowered when needed. The ramps are about as high as the top of the Contour's hood and the Contour would have just gotten wedged under the opening of the barrier ramp. And there wasn't enough of a "ramp" in front of the barrier to floor it and jump the car over the barrier (ala Dukes Of Hazzard), hence the barrier system would really work.
