The greatest adventure history has ever revealed.
In order to break the code, one man will have to break all the rules.
The clues are right in front of your eyes.
Movie Connection(s):
Audio/Video Mismatch
When Abigail and Riley notice two of Ian's thugs chasing them, Riley says, "Time to run", but his lips do not move.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When the FBI agents enter his father's home, the agents enter through the front door, and present handguns. What you hear is a click like a safety being released on a pistol. They're carrying Glocks. There is no external safety release on a Glock.

Character Error
Throughout the movie, it is said the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4th, 1776, when in fact, it was only adopted on that day. It was not actually engrossed on parchment, and signed until August 2nd, 1776.

Character Error
When Ben is hiding from Abigail in the gift shop, he ends up buying a Declaration replica using his credit card. Throughout this scene, Riley is known to be listening in to Ben's conversations, so he would have heard at least Ben's side of that transaction. Yet later when discussing their options in the park, Riley expresses surprise about the credit card transaction.

Character Error
Abigail's password into the preservation room is supposed to be VALLEYFORGE, an eleven letter password. When she enters her password, she only types eight characters, one being an N and one being the space bar, neither of which are found in VALLEYFORGE.

When Ben hands Abigail the champagne glass, she holds it near the bottom. When Ben is in the bathroom testing her fingerprints, the prints are near the top of the glass.

The length of Riley's goatee varies throughout the movie.

Errors in Geography
After Ben and Riley leave the National Archives, they are next seen on the steps of the Abraham Lincoln Memorial continuing their conversation. The Lincoln Memorial is at least 2 miles from the National Archives, and at least 1 mile from any subway station. It seems very unlikely that they would have had no substantial conversation on the long walk.

Errors in Geography
When Riley goes down into the Archives-Navy Memorial Metro stop to tap the security system, the train passing behind him is clearly a New York subway train and not a DC Metro train.
Good guys in the movie seem to use Google and the bad guys use Yahoo! search engines.

Actress Diane Kruger did most of her own stunt work in the car chase scene.

The movie includes footage from the very first filming ever allowed in the tower of Philadelphia's 'Independence Hall'.

Sadusky wears a tie with the United States Marine Corps insignia during the film, Harvey Keitel who plays Sadusky had served with the Marines prior to becoming an actor.

The Liberty Bell shown in the movie was actually made of styrofoam. The movie was shot a few days before the Liberty Bell was put in.

Abigail Chase claims she's from Saxony in Germany when Gates first meets her. Diane Kruger is in fact from Germany, but from the state of Lower Saxony, not Saxony.
