Rocky II

Factual error: During the period in which Apollo is trying to bait Rocky into a rematch, Rocky puts the TV on and sees a sports report in which Brent Musburger announces that the Los Angeles Rams defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a late field goal by Frank Corral. The movie takes late 1976-ish. The Rams did not play the Buccaneers in 1976, and Frank Corral did not join the Rams until 1978. The game in question occurred during the 1978 season.

Factual error: 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.

Factual error: Even though the story is supposed to take place in late 1976-ish, the Trans Am that Rocky drives is a 1978 model.

Mistakes

When Apollo Creed is approaching the ring for the rematch at the end of the film, his robe starts off done-up, next shot shows it undone and the towel around his neck loose, and then in the last shot it's back to being neat again with the robe done up. Even when he enters the ring it's all neat and tidy.
