Revealing mistake: Rocky, Apollo, Adrian, and Paulie are filmed from behind walking to Apollo's gym (notice Rocky and Apollo are the same height). When Rocky turns to walk in the door, you see heels at least three inches tall on his feet.

Factual error: After the match with Thunderlips the newspaper says it was Wednesday, May 15 1982, but that day was a Saturday.

Character mistake: During Mickey's MI it's stated that his blood pressure is 200/50 (that alone is ridiculous) and the doctor immediately says "OK. Let's start CPR." If Mickey has a BP he has a pulse, and any CPR certified healthcare provider would know that you can't do CPR on a patient with a pulse.

Revealing mistake: In a shot of Clubber Lang and his manager standing in the corner at the end of the first round during the rematch between Lang and Rocky, "Clubber" on Lang's boxing shorts and "Heavyweight Champ" on the manager's shirt are back to front, indicating that it is a reversed shot.

Continuity mistake: When Rocky is choking Thunderlips he does with his left arm, then after an angle change it's his right.

Continuity mistake: After the first match with Clubber, Mickey gets sick and Adrien makes a pillow with her coat for him. Just before he lies down his hat disappears.

Apollo Creed: See that look in their eyes, Rock? You gotta get that look back, Rock. Eye of the tiger, man.

More quotes from Rocky III

Trivia: Mr. T was chosen for this role by Stallone himself - he spotted Mr. T in a "world's toughest bouncer" contest (which Mr. T won). What sold Stallone was Mr. T's snazzy dressing, no-nonsense attitude and spectacular lingo. Apparently, the line that solidified him on the idea of hiring T was Mr. T's answer to the question "how do you handle potential troublemakers?". Mr. T had his head shaved bald at the time, and his answer was "I tell dem fools that mah patience is as long as the hair on mah head." He was hired almost instantly. The role in Rocky III got him the spot in the A-Team, and the rest is history...

Question: Why is Clubber Lang allowed to box professionally, considering that his favorite KO punch seems to be right to the back of the head while the opponent is on their knees?

Answer: Clubber Lang worked his way up the professional ranks. If you notice, the challanger is still able to fight, the referee uses his own discresion to ignore the final punch as the match would have been called in Langs favour anyway
