Corrected entry: When Topper is frying eggs, bacon, & hash browns on Ramada's belly, you can tell it is actually a fryer shaped to look like a woman's belly. For one thing, her belly doesn't inflate & deflate from breathing, & she doesn't flinch when Topper is melting the ice cube around her belly button.

Correction: Also, if you didn't notice, when Commander Block is having a blood transfusion, in the last shot the person that has the blood drained from him is actually an inflatable man. Its a spoof so pretty much all of it is "Mistakes" to reality.


Corrected entry: When Ramada is interviewing Topper in her office, she lists off the difficulties that his father had. She says "In 1971 his Visa card was cancelled." BankAmericard did not change its name to Visa until 1976.

Correction: In this instance it does not matter that National BankAmericard Inc. changed the name BankAmericard to the easy, memorable name Visa in 1976. Since it is the exact same card, it is hardly a mistake to have referred to it as the commonly known Visa card in the early 1990s, when the film was made - even though the card cancellation occurred in 1971, when it was still BankAmericard. Regardless, this is a character's choice of words, not a film mistake.

Corrected entry: When Block's cockpit gets barraged by bullets, some of those shots would have hit him in more places than just the arm.

Correction: The movie is a spoof. In some war movies, no matter how bad the plane gets shot up (if the pilot lives) he only takes a round in the arm.

Revealing mistake: Near the start of the film, when Lt. Harley is watching his love interest show off by doing gymnastics on the tree limbs, several times you can see the actual pole she is swinging on, not the tree limb. (00:08:50)
