Continuity mistake: Highway and Choozoo are in the bar when Little Mary Jackson tells them that their battalion has gone on full alert. They both leave the bar and it is night time (also a cut away clip of Aggie being driven past in a convertible car shows darkness). The scene then cuts to the barracks and throughout the scene, you can see through the thin curtains that it is daylight outside. The scene then cuts back to the parade ground and it is night time again.

Mistakes

At the very beginning of the film, Gunny Highway learns that he's being reassigned to the 2nd Marine Division. The 2nd Division, located at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, is situated on the NC coast; there are no mountains in the immediate vicinity. However, when the Gunny trains his platoon, he does so in the hills of another Marine training camp located in California. There is a big difference between California and North Carolina.
