10 Most Biographically Inaccurate Movies

You have to love an analysis that gives genuine consideration to a Yahoo Serious movie.

And just of the top of my head, I can add: "The Passion." Any adaptation of the life of Christopher Columbus. And as a nod to MeiMei, "Becoming Jane." (Though I continue to reserve the right to spend too much time with that film because of James MacAvoy. I think his charm short circuits my critical faculties or something. Wait, what were we talking about? I was too busy reliving scenes of his earnest passion. Shh. Not done yet. Ahhhh, le sigh.)

Ah, to be fair, "Becoming Jane" was marketed as "based" on Austen's life, which means "we're totally not factual--at all!" I don't have a problem with that; it's Anne Hathaway's acting that's horrid. And I normally love the girl, but her British accent? Seriously, just rip off my ears. Really. Start with the left one, please.
