3,000 Miles to Graceland

Factual error: Although you'd have to actually live in Boise to catch the myriad of differences from the movie town, the most glaring is that the movie Boise appears to be a lush rainforest, like Vancouver or Seattle. The real Boise is strictly desert, and you won't find those green interstate medians anywhere near here.

Factual error: While tracking Kevin Costner, Thomas Hayden Church reads a bio listing Costner's birthdate as Jan. 8, 1955. He then says Costner served as a medic in Vietnam. But Costner's character would've been too young for Vietnam. He would've only become eligible for military service at age 18, in Jan. 1973! That was the same month the U.S. ended the draft and began bringing home the troops. Even if he volunteered, it still would've been too late to serve in Vietnam.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase scene between Courtney Cox with Kevin Costner in pursuit, there is at least one instance where Cox's car has been smashed on the sides, then the very next shot has the sides of the car in pristine condition.

Trivia: Kevin Costner kills the guy driving the "Wombat Wagon" to/from Canada. The driver identifies the wombat as a small animal - like a hedgehog. As far as I know the wombat is unique to Australia, and it is about the size and weight of a decent-sized pig.
