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: Shaving cream reappears - When Cadet Major Morelan is shaving in front of the mirror he shaves his right side of his face then shaves part of his left side of his face. The next shot is a closeup of him in the mirror and the left side of his face is unshaven and completely covered with shaving cream. He then begins to shave the left side of his face again.
