Gone In Sixty Seconds - Sailing Away
About half way through the movie when Atley is telling Memphis and his crew about the ship that they will be bringing the cars to, Atley tells then that the ship will be sailing at 8:00 SHARP. Memphis had until 8:00 that morning to get the cars that he needed. Even if he did get the last car that he needed by 8:00, the ship should already be set sail. I would guess that it would take an hour or so to load all the cars, and get the ship ready to sail. I think that would be the movie writers mistake. He should have had the movie made so Memphis had until 7:00 AM to get the cars that he needed, not 8:00. He could also have had it made so the ship sails at 9:00 sharp, then the 8:00 deadline could have stayed the same.

Note: as soon as the containers were full they were put on the ship. So this would be correct to say the ship was leaving at 8:00, cause the crew would have to wait while the cars were loaded. That is why the dude said "sorry mate, we're all done here, if you have a problem take it out with Coletrie" cause the ship was leaving.

Actually all the preparations for setting sail are made in advance because reservations have to be made for the shipping lanes. This means they need to make sure everything works before hand. They can get underway in roughly a minute from the time the brow ("gangway") is pulled up. The deadline also makes sense because customs officials would search the ship before it leaves but depart an hour or so prior to "underway." Although in this case the cars would have been stored on the pier and brought on in those last few minutes.
