Technical and historical accuracy
The title of the film is a misquotation of the ominous announcement made by Commander Jim Lovell following the explosion of an oxygen tank which tore off the side of the spacecraft service module. Lovell actually said, "Houston, we've had a problem" (emphasis added).
The film does not focus on the spaceflight itself, but rather on the crises in Mission Control. Jim Lovell wrote a letter to TV Guide about the film, saying that the crises in Mission Control were dramatized.
There are several other inaccuracies.
