Spies Like Us

Revealing mistake: When Millbarge changes the missile's programming at the last instant, the rocket changes course simply by rotating the shooting frame - and even if it could change course like that, the angle of ascension would be wider than indicated on the bunker base's computer screen.

Other mistake: When Chevy chase is being filmed cheating on the exam, all the video cameras are on the sidewalls near the roof. But later when they view the footage, the last shot of Chevy copying the answers is from the floor level where no camera was seen in any previous shots. Also what was a floor level camera going to film anyway...everyone's feet?
