Eddie the Eagle

Factual error: The film is set in 1987 and Eddie ends up in hospital. However the bed we see him on is a fairly modern one with hand controls to raise and lower the bed. Not available in 1987.

Continuity mistake: Eddie changes his skis and has a second attempt at the 40m jump. There is a montage of crashes, his skis change back and forth from his original green ones to his newer white ones.

Continuity mistake: Before Eddie walks out for his 90m jump, Bronson hands him his helmet on which he has just finished inscribing "eagle" in gold permanent marker. When they walk out out of the tunnel to the competition area, Eddie is holding his helmet, and "eagle" has disappeared. (01:22:00 - 01:24:00)
