Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix - G-Unit on Dudley's Pants
In the beginning of the movie, if i'm not mistaken. Dudley's "gangsta" apparel, particularly his pants, have a bunch of logos on them. I'm pretty sure I saw "G-Unit"(American rap group with 50 Cent) as one of the logos. J.K. Rowling said that HP takes place in the early to mid 1990's. I'm not sure if the director noticed this, but how could Dudley have "G-Unit" on his pants if they never existed in the 1990's? I find it REALLY weird.

There are plenty of other anachronisms (the book starts in the summer of 1995) if you look, such as the development of Canary Wharf (I'm not sure even 1 Canada Square had been built in 1995; the other skyscrapers definitely hadn't), the London Eye (erected in late 1999), the 2006 car numberplate which can clearly be seen in the background as Harry arrives home carrying Dudley, and the 2005 pop song which is used in one of the Gryffindor common-room scenes; but it's debatable whether these are really slip-ups, as the movie is seen by many as an adaptation of the book, rather than a slavish retelling.

The Books may take place in the early to mid Nineties...but the Movies Don't necessarily have that time frame.
