Rocky

Audio problem: At the end of the fight when Apollo tells Rocky there won't be a rematch, his lips aren't moving. Rocky's lips aren't moving either when he says "Don't want one!"

Other mistake: About half way through the movie, Adrian gives Rocky a dog (Butkus). The second time Rocky goes to the meatpacking plant, the dog is with him when he walks in, but he walks out alone and the dog is not seen again in this movie.

Trivia: Directors and producers never wanted Talia Shire to play Adrian because they felt she was too pretty to play a shy girl like her character. So she came to the interview dressed down and was awarded the part.

Question: How accurate is the boxing depicted in the movie compared to real boxing?

Answer: It's pretty inaccurate. Real life fighters would tire out long before the 15th round after throwing so many haymakers (knock out punches). The amount of punches that connect clean without a knock out is also unrealistic. Creed doesn't seem to ever miss with his punches. Even an inexperienced boxer should be able to see at least a few punches coming and move to avoid them, Rocky seems to have no defense at all. The reaction to being punched is exaggerated for dramatic effect (Creed being lifted off the ground due to the power of Rocky's body punches, Rocky's head being thrown back due to the power of Creed's jab). It is also likely, though this is debatable, that the fight would have been stopped prior to the 15th round as both fighters could hardly stand going into that round.
