* ''Film/TheLivingDaylights'' has a big chase scene in which Bond tries to escape from Bratislava in Slovakia to Vienna in Austria by going over snow covered mountains. While Slovakia is a mostly mountainous country, Bratislava sits in the same Danube plain as Vienna and directly on the Austrian border. Even if he took a detour through Czechia to cross into Austria where it wouldn't be expected, there still wouldn't be waist deep snow while people are outside without jackets in Vienna.

* Since the Hans Christian Andersen version takes place in Denmark, ''Disney/{{TheLittleMermaid}}'' is often speculated to take place on the same coast. Except when you see the surface there are sea cliffs, mountains, and palm trees, alternatively of course the location is an AdaptationDeviation.

* UsefulNotes/WashingtonDC has several odd features that make screwing it up a popular subtrope of this. From ''Film/DieHard2'' revolving around planes desperately needing to land at Dulles International as if the DC area alone didn't have '''two''' other commercial airports (not to mention it being part of the Eastern Seaboard), to too many chase scenes to count across the rooftops of the skyscrapers it doesn't have, to the fact that characters never seem to need to cross bridges to get between downtown DC and the Pentagon... It's understandable that most productions don't want to film there, considering that another one of its most noticeable features in real life is how badly thought out the grid is, but pop culture tends to be so unrealistic that ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' made instant waves in the city just by featuring somewhat plausible local geography. See the TV folder for more.

* Dialogue in ''Film/BeforeSunrise'' makes it clear that the train Jesse and Celine meet on was traveling west, from Budapest to Vienna. Yet the landscape outside the train is rolling and almost hilly in some places, more consistent with what you'd see traveling west ''from'' Vienna, in the direction of Salzburg and the Alps—what we'd see if they'd stayed on the train instead of getting off (The actual terrain between the two cities is mostly open plain, which wouldn't [[SceneryPorn have made as nice a backdrop]] for their meeting).

* DownplayedTrope in ''Series/StrangerThings'', which takes place in Indiana but was shot in a suburb of {{Atlanta}}, Georgia. While there are no mountains, the terrain is shown as being fairly hilly, which isn't true of the actual Indiana.

* In the first ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' game there's a mission where you have to blow up the Eder Dam. The background is hilarious to any German; the Alpine peaks definitely don't look much like Hesse.

* SufjanStevens' ''The Avalanche: Outtakes and Extras from the "Illinois" Album''. His press releases for the album joked about the Prairie State's lack of real avalanches, and said that the name was meant to suggest "musical debris". The title track from the album is apparently about a Chevy Avalanche.
