Taps

Character mistake: When the adults are inventorying the weapons in the armory, one of them walks over to a case of pistols and says, "Pistol, 45 millimeter, M 1911A." The M1911A is a .45 caliber pistol and is listed as such right on the crate. There's no way the actor could have read "45 millimeter" anywhere on the crate.

Continuity mistake: When Cadet Major Morelan is unbuttoning his jacket he unbuttons the top 2 buttons and the bottom 2 buttons. This leaves the middle 3 buttons fastened. He then sits down and is talking to Tom Cruise, Sean Penn and 1 other Cadet. In the next shot when he stands up, the bottom 3 buttons are now unbuttoned and only 2 buttons are fastened. He had sat down with his hands on his knees and that never changed. The button could not/would not unbuttoned itself.
