Pearl Harbour


Pearl Harbour[1] is on Pearl right now. It's not the most historically accurate movie ever, as is shown by the IMDB list of Pearl Harbour Goofs, but there's one thing that bugged me about it the last time I saw it.

Does Rafe (Ben Affleck) really get aboard a train in New York which takes him to England? That's moronic, even by Hollywood standards of geographical accuracy.

See also Wikipedia: Pearl Harbour for more inaccuracies.

[1] - I'll stick to the 'British English'[2] standard spelling, thankyewverymuch.

[2] - Except it's not really British, being standard in Canada, Australia, Ireland, South Africa, and many other places. There should really be a more accurate term for that. Probably 'Standard English everywhere except the USA'.
