Hot Shots! mistake picture

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)

Revealing mistake: When Topper launches the olive off her belly button in the romance scene, her entire chest moves, showing that it's obviously not her chest.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where a fighter plane parks on a handicapped parking lot (on a carrier), the openings of the missile pods on that plane and its neighbour are merely painted on. (00:55:00)

Revealing mistake: When Ramada starts singing and is walking up the slanted piano, you can easily tell that the whole room is slanted by the way people are sitting in the background. Ramada is actually walking parallel to the floor.

Continuity mistake: When Dead Meat has crashed, and Washout's parachute is lying on the road, the ambulance runs over it. In the first shot, the ambulance clearly runs completely over it without catching the parachute at all. In the next shot we see the ambulance hooking the parachute and dragging Washout along the road. (00:42:55)

Topper Harley: My father used to say that not playing to win is like sleeping with your sister. Sure she's a great piece of tail, with a blouse full of goodies, but... It's just illegal. Then you get into that whole inbred thing. Kids with no teeth who do nothing but play the banjo... Eat apple sauce through a straw... Pork farm animals.

Chosen answer: A chafing dish is a large metal pan or glass container (either is called a "dish") that is used to serve hot food at a buffet. The dish fits into an elevated metal stand that has one or more holders on the bottom for small sterno containers. The heat from the lit sterno keeps food warm
