** Not quite. In the movie it's clearly stated to be around 1.5 km tall, and it's later shown that Mount Everest and many of the other tall mountains in the Himalayas are far above the water level. The reason it manages to overtop several shorter mountains is because the continental plate that the Himalayas rested on sunk several thousand meters in the preceding earthquakes.

* One of the most unusual real life variations on this was the Great Molasses Flood of Boston in 1919. Almost nine thousand cubic meters of molasses were released when a tank of it burst and released an eight meter wave of molasses. Small buildings were ripped off their foundations and crushed. Unlike water the molasses was almost impossible to escape from once people were ensnared. A reporter described vague shapes (people and horses) struggling inside the the sticky mass.

* ''Literature/ThePoseidonAdventure'', about an ocean liner that capsizes after being hit by one of these. The author, Paul Gallico, was inspired by his own real-life experience of being aboard the ''Queen Mary'' when she was hit by a rogue wave in 1942 and nearly turned over.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/rogue_wave Rogue waves]]. They can be up to 35 m high (yup, that's 115 feet) and they are preceded with a trough so deep and steep as described as "like a hole in the ocean". Their existence was long doubted, but they do exist. A rogue wave is steep and resembles a vertical wall of water, and can sink even an ocean-going ship, nevermind yachts and fishing vessels.
