I'm watching a movie that's supposed to be set 300 miles north of Anchorage, AK at Christmas. As someone who lived in Anchorage for four years, I can tell you that this movie very clearly was NOT filmed anywhere near Anchorage. The bright sunlight is the first giveaway--this time of year it never gets brighter than dusk. There's hardly any snow (hah! as if!), the roads are clear, it's a real little town made of bricks and old homes and buildings and tons of traffic (but the heroine had to take a small plane to get there). Best of all, there's a factory that specializes in shipping stuff.
Why would any business locate itself 300 miles away from the nearest post office? Why are writers held to a much higher standard than film makers? Life's not fair!
The hero is wearing short sleeves!
