Airplane

Corrected entry: At the very end of the movie, Stryker is seen on the plane in a very sweat-soaked shirt. A couple of shots later, after Stryker is off the plane, the auto pilot waves to him as he takes off and now Stryker's shirt is completely dry.

Correction: This "mistake" was intended, since the sweat-soaked shirt was a joke, and to continue it into another scene would be in violation of one of our comedy rules, which is "Can you live with it?" Once a joke is done, it is not continued into the next scene.

Corrected entry: One of the black characters orders a steak, but later in the movie, he is sick from eating the fish.

Correction: There are two Jive characters, the right one gets sick
