* In ''{{Lost}}'', Boone's hotel room in Sydney was apparently suspended in the air above Sydney Harbour, as that is the only way he could have had that view out of his window.

* Film/StreetFighterTheLegendOfChunLi starts in her first home, where she's playing the piano in a room of her house with an excellent view of the Golden Gate Bridge... one that would be somewhere in Golden Gate park, which is, well, park land and office buildings.

Added DiffLines:

* Late night shows and news shows tend to have cityscape backgrounds that have little to do with their actual location and are sometimes composite images.

Added DiffLines:

* The trope is mentioned and lampshaded in ''Series/FawltyTowers'', when a guest complains about the view of her hotel room not being interesting:
-->'''Basil''': Well may I ask what you expected to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically across the plain?

** StarTrekOnline did a great job fixing the problem. The Academy really is on that narrow strip of land (what we saw in the show was a trick of angles) and the main building goes into the cliffside under the road next to the Bridge and then goes up to a leveled portion of HQ where Janeway's office is in Nemesis.

* In ''{{Ratatouille}}'', Linguini says his apartment is "not much", but it has a huge window with a spectacular view of the Paris skyline, which it doesn't seem like he could have afforded as an unsuccessful busboy.

* This gets invoked with Devil's Tower in CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind. It's a cool, weird monument and the focus of much attention throughout the movie, but the clearing/landing pad at the base of the tower in the climax does not/could not exist.

* StarTrek is all over this one; in every iteration, Starfleet academy is on the Marin County side of the Golden Gate Bridge. There's maybe a couple hundred acres of usable land in view of the bridge in RealLife (and not all together), the rest being steep hills and canyons. Unless the entire area was leveled, the facility is not possible and even with leveling would be crammed on a narrow strip of land next to a major thoroughfare.
