Cast Away (2000)
Factual error: When Chuck cleans out the pocket of the dead pilot, we see the pilot's employee ID badge. He is employee number 186801 and was hired in 1987. I was hired in 1992 with an ID number of 161XXX. My brother was hired in 1988 with an ID nunnery of 88XXX. The pilot's ID number should have been lower than my brother's.

Snakes on a Plane (2006)
Factual error: When they track the down the snake keeper that had the snakes he was bitten. The snake expert went into the fridge for the anti-venom and it was already mixed in the vial. He then loaded a syringe with the antivenin. This is a major flaw. Antivenoms have to be mixed. They are never in a vial ready to go. They are always mixed and warmed in a solution prior to administration.
