Factual error: During the press conference, the president says that at 5:00 AM the Baldwin residence was bombed. However, the Baldwins were sunning themselves. And, if the president was referring to Eastern time, it would have been 2:00 AM in Hollywood (sign in the background). (00:26:35 - 00:27:45)
Continuity mistake: During the "La Resistance" number, during the verse, "They may stab you in the head, with a dagger or sword," We see a guy wearing blue with a blue hat on the left (probably Craig). In the next shot, he disappears, and in the next shot, he reappears. (00:50:05)
General: Now each battalion has a specific code-name and mission. Battalion 5, raise your hands!
[All of the African-Americans raise their hands.]
General: You will be the all important first defense wave, which we will call "Operation Human Shield."
Chef: Hey, wait a minute!
General: Now keep in mind, Operation Human Shield will suffer heavy losses. But don't lose your spirit, men! Stay until the bitter end. Battalion 14?
[The rest of the group, all Caucasian, raise their hands.]
General: Right, you are "Operation Get Behind The Darkies." You will follow Battalion 5 here, and try not to get killed for God's sake! Are there any questions, men?
[Chef raises his hand.]
General: Yes, soldier?
Chef: Haven't you heard of the Emancipation Proclamation?
General: I don't listen to hip-hop.
Question: What tune does Ike play or start to play on the harmonica in the attic? It sounds somewhat familiar to me, but I have no idea what it is.
