One of My Great Pet Peeves

Why can't Hollywood do an accurate portrayal of Washington, DC?

It's a problem that extends to the whole DC region, too. In Syriana, I believe there's a scene where George Clooney is standing outside what is obviously an Ikea -- only thing is, the only Ikea in the region is in College Park. And let's not forget the gleaming set of skyscrapers that populated Ft. Detrick in the disaster flick Outbreak, which if you've seen the actual Ft. Detrick in Frederick, is an absolute farce.
