The Town

Factual error: The FBI, looking into prior bank robberies the group may have been involved in, look at a board that says Bank Boston dated 2008. In 1999 Bank Boston and Fleet Bank merged to form Fleet Boston, so there was no Bank Boston in 2008. As a matter of fact Fleet Boston didn't exist at the time of the film, 2010, as Bank of America absorbed it in 2005.

Factual error: When talking about the planned robbery of Fenway, the florist mentions a four-game series with New York. However, later the crew is in a bar and a clip of the baseball game is being shown on the television. The game being shown is against Toronto. Since this scene is supposed to be just prior to the heist, one would expect the visiting team to be the Yankees, not the Blue Jays.

Suggested correction: There's nothing to indicate the clip in the bar is from a current game. Sports networks often show classic games in repeats.

Give me a break, they screwed that up.

Factual error: The establishing shot when Doug takes Claire to visit the assistant manager is set (like the entire film) in Boston, but the shot shows the City of Angels Medical Center (now the Silver Lake Medical Center) in Rosemont, Los Angeles. Unfortunately, its name is emblazoned all over the exterior wall. (00:39:00)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Doug and his brother are talking outside the cemetery, the zipper on Doug's jacket goes from being almost completely zipped to about halfway zipped without him touching it.
