The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Continuity mistake: When Solo first bumps into Waverly at the party, he looks over his left shoulder as he says, "I beg your pardon." Later, when they are introduced, the flashback has him looking over his right shoulder.


Factual error: During the first car chase, when Solo asks Gabby if he can "borrow her car" that she was working on, it's a 1966 Wartburg 100. The film takes place in 1963.


Character mistake: When Gaby's car becomes wedged between two buildings, she says, "Good plan. All we have to do is get over two twenty-foot walls and a minefield." While minimal backstory is given, I think it reasonable to assume that she has lived in what was East Germany all her life. It is thus highly unlikely that she would express a measurement in English units (being bilingual doesn't mean you automatically convert measurements). She would have said something like "six meters."
