* One of the most pervasive examples is the 1969 Oscar winning version of ''Film/TrueGrit''. The entire production was clearly filmed in Colorado and California with numerous shots featuring snow capped mountains in the distance. But these peaks are intended as stand-ins for the Ouachita, Boston and Arbuckle Mountains of Arkansas and Oklahoma, which are highly weathered mountains and more usually large hills that rarely exceed 2000 feet above sea level, seldom project more than 500 feet above the surrounding terrain, and look nothing like the Rockies or the High Sierras - much to the amusement of anyone familiar with the actual geography so prominently a part of the Portis novel and surprisingly the adapted movie script. The 2010 remake, though shot in New Mexico and Texas, much more accurately represents the real terrain of the stated setting.

* Geography is [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield a tricky subject at best]] in TheDCU, but various depictions of Central City and Smallville in particular include nearby mountains which would be at odds with the presumptively Midwestern locations of those cities.

* Despite taking place in Las Vegas, much of the action in ''Film/SmokinAces'' is seen happening at a fictional hotel... where outside, snow-capped mountains and pine trees are shown. Anyone who has even been to Nevada would fall over laughing at this, knowing no such sight can be seen for ''8 hours'' from Vegas.
* A more embarrassing example is the 2006 American remake of the Japanese horror film ''Pulse'', which takes place in the US despite ''very clearly'' being shot in Bulgaria.
