Swimfan (2002)

Plot hole: How did Madison handle routine radio checks when she took over the police car? And why didn't the dispatcher notice something was amiss?

Factual error: The Los Angeles Police Department no longer has an Internal Affairs division. The division is known as the Bureau of Professional Standards and is subject to civilian oversight - meaning the roughshod treatment Gavilan was receiving at their hands would have been checked at minimum by a civilian review board. That having been said, Gavilan's behavior should have gotten him in trouble regardless of whether or not someone in the department was out to get him.

Trivia: The ending of the 2001 version of the movie is almost directly taken from the ending of the original 1963 novel by Pierre Boulle. Only the setting has changed, from Paris (Eiffel Tower) to Washington DC (Lincoln/Thade Memorial).

Down With Love (2003)

Factual error: At the end of the movie mention is made that Catcher gave Barbara his publisher's Celestron telescope, shown earlier in a scene where the two are looking at the moon. This was probably product placement, but the C10 design shown in the movie was not offered by Celestron until 1964 (the film is set in 1962) and it sold for a price of around $2000, not $6000 as stated in the movie.

Factual error: In the future it is possible to travel from Griffith Park to central Orange County (around 50 miles) via unpowered hang glider in only 10 or 20 minutes, according to Snake's countdown timer. This would mean the hang glider would need to be traveling somewhere between 150 and 300 miles per hour.
