G.I. Jane

Factual error: When Jordan arrives at the training base, she is riding in a canvas-topped Humvee. The doors consist of a light wire frame covered by a vinyl canvas, and must be hooked shut with a plastic handle. You can see that she fails to secure the door, and it flops open behind her. Yet there is the sound effect of a full-size metal automobile door slamming shut.

Factual error: When Senator DeHaven is leaving the senate hearing that opens the movie, her limo pulls out of a stone archway and onto Constitution Ave. The building in front of the limo is the American History Museum, which makes the stone archway part of the Environmental Protection Agency building. A senate hearing on the Navy's policy toward women would not be held at the EPA. Furthermore, the limo turns left, not right, and therefore away from the direction of the capitol.

Continuity mistake: Just before Demi Moore is about to get her head shaved she sees the base commander about equal treatment, and we notice very visibly that O'Neil has one side of her face bruised and all red and swollen. But in the next scene, which takes place moments later, when O'Neil is shaving her head, her injuries are all gone. Where did they all go to?

Master Chief John Urgayle: I don't know what the hell's been going on in the last 48 hours. And frankly I don't give a shit.
Lt. Jordan O'Neil: Good to see you too, Master Chief.

Trivia: Throughout the film, Master Chief John James Urgayle, played by Viggo Mortensen, reads and quotes poetry. In real life, Viggo is very fond of poetry; in addition to being an accomplished poet, skilled actor, artist, painter, and horseback rider, he published a book of his own poems entitled 'Ten Last Night' before he became well known.
