Corrected entry: It's pretty obvious at the end, when they both fall, that Stallone falls on purpose. Watch the DVD in slo-mo and you'll see that Apollo never hits him, Rocky just falls back to canvas.
Corrected entry: In the scene right after the first time Rocky tries to catch the chicken (to build speed), we see Rocky punching a bag with his left hand, and his right arm is tied to his side. If Mickey is trying to train him to become a right-handed fighter, why would he be having him jab with his left hand "till it hurts"? Shouldn't he be trying to build strength in his right arm?
Corrected entry: Early in the movie, in the scene where Rocky is taking Adrian home from their wedding, they are seen walking under the elevated subway train (the Market-Frankford "El"). Rocky lives in South Philadelphia (in Rocky III he said the Spectrum in South Philly was "10 minutes from my house" so he didn't move), where the subway runs underground.
Corrected entry: After leaving the gym Rocky goes to the pet shop to walk Adrienne home, and there are a few guys outside of the gym, who are taunting Rocky, calling him an Italian Chicken. After Rocky tells Adrienne that they have him confused with someone else, you can hear one of the guys say off camera, "That's Talia Shire," referring to Adrienne.
Corrected entry: In the beginning in his hospital bed, Rocky is seen giving his autograph to a nurse. He signs the autograph with his right hand. If he is a left-handed fighter, a "Southpaw" then why wouldn't he sign it left-handed?
Corrected entry: During the "Gonna Fly Now"-walk with the kids near the end-fight, the kid running behind Rocky is getting instructions on when to speed up his run. You see him take a quick peek to the left and then speed up. He is obviously being waved at or something.
Corrected entry: At the end of the climactic fight scene, Rocky throws a punch, knocking down Apollo, which throws him (Rocky) off balance. Both fighters fall to the canvas. For some reason, this is treated as though both men were knocked down. Actually, it should be ruled a slip for Rocky, as Apollo did not actually knock him down with a punch.
Corrected entry: In the final fight scene, Rocky and Apollo both fall onto the canvas on their fronts. When the camera angle changes, Rocky is on his back.
Corrected entry: Rocky sold his car in a need for money stating he's having problems parking it. Towards the end of the movie, just as he's running out of the house to practice for the final fight of the movie, the car is parked outside.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Rocky is running around Philadelphia, the last time he runs before the big re-match with Apollo, he covers the following territory: Broadstreet, the Italian Market, Fairmount Park, The Art Museum, etc. Including all of those locales, the total distance is over 26 miles. A MARATHON for a training run - quite impressive - and unusual. Clearly done just to show off the great city of Philadelphia.
