Roxanne

Revealing mistake: After CD has swoon Roxanna for Chris, Charlie falls out of a tree in front of the old ladies. If you look close you can see a darker patch of grass that CD falls in. It's clear it's placed there as a soft landing pad for the stunt man to hit.

Factual error: When they are putting out the fire, Charlie belts out "I want two 2-1/2 inch lines from the pump to the fire and three 1-1/2 inch lines from the hydrant to the pump". This is backwards. No fire department would ever use three small handlines to supply an engine from a hydrant.
