Corrected entry: When Rocky wakes up on the day of his first jog, the radio announcer reports that it's 28 degrees outside. However, when we see Rocky jogging, you can't see his breath. (01:07:45 - 01:09:00)

Correction: As pointed out several times before, breath showing in the air is about humidity, not temperature. See Alien vs Predator for similar corrections.

This is a misunderstanding about how humidity plays a role in seeing your breath. If the relative humidity of both your breath and air outside combined is 100%, you'll see your breath, this means you can see your breath at higher temperatures. To reach 100% relative humidity, the outside humidity needs to be higher or the temperature needs to be lower. However, at a certain temperature (usually around 45°F), you'll always see your breath. So at 28°, you'll always see your breath, no matter what the humidity is. This is a valid revealing mistake.


Corrected entry: In the scene where Mickey goes to Rocky's apartment to offer his services as manager, Mickey climbs the stairs and walks up to Rocky's door. The apartment number is on the outside of the door. The scene cuts to Rocky opening the door from inside the apartment. There is no longer an apartment number on the door.

Correction: This is not an error, the door that Rocky opens in that seen is the bathroom door inside of the apartment, not the front door to the apartment.

Corrected entry: Creeds promotor is referred to as Miles Jergens all through the film, but when he meets Rocky in his office to offer him the fight, he introduces himself as George Jergens.

Correction: Miles is his nickname.

Jason Hoffman

Corrected entry: At the end of the 14th round of the boxing match between Rocky and Apollo you can clearly see a steady cam operator wearing a green striped shirt in the upper right hand corner of the screen. The Director even admits to it in the audio commentary on the DVD. (01:48:55)

Correction: Yes, but this is a much talked-about fight for the heavyweight World Championship title. The fight has naturally attracted a lot of media attention, and is televised.


Corrected entry: Stallone wrote the first draft of Rocky in one weekend.

Correction: He wrote the first draft in 4 days.

Corrected entry: Just before Rocky goes for an early morning training run, he drinks a cup full of raw eggs. No sportsman will ever eat just before a strenuous exercise. Rocky was involved in boxing for over 10 years and he should have known better.

Correction: Time could have passed between him drinking the eggs and the running.

Corrected entry: When Micky comes up to ask Rocky if he can manage him he picks darts from his door in his flat and throws them at the door. It shows there are two darts and then when Micky leaves it shows that there are three.

Correction: If you look very closely, there are actually three. One of the darts is directly behind the other, but you can see by the shadow and by the points that there are three.
