Moviegoers love science fiction. You can classify most of the top 10 highest-grossing movies of all time as sci-fi. Given the genre's success, it should come as no surprise that Hollywood increasingly produces science fiction films—yet filmmakers often play loose with the facts for the sake of entertainment value. Many movies depend on dubious science to some extent, but others rely on huge errors to support their main premises.
