Office Space

Factual error: All of the computers show a Mac OS when they're booted up. However, when Peter is shutting his computer down to try to escape his boss, the computer shuts down to a C: prompt. For those not technically minded, a C: prompt is only seen on IBM-compatible PCs, never on Macs. (00:19:20)

Factual error: When Peter is fishing, the fish being caught is a largemouth bass. When he holds the fish up in the office, it is a striped bass.
