Corrected entry: When Jerry asks Dorothy to marry him, she initially has sunglasses on, and Jerry pulls them down to the end of her nose. In the next shot, the glasses have miraculously moved up her nose a bit, and as she finally cuddles him, they are fully back up where they started. (01:33:15)
Corrected entry: Most people are familiar with the iconic line, "You had me at hello". However, it is factually inaccurate. Jerry never actually says "hello" to her.
Corrected entry: In the the movie, they show the Cardinals playing against 2 AFC teams who are in differnt divisions...NFC teams only play teams in one AFC division per year.
Corrected entry: The morning after Dorothy and Jerry slept together, she tells her sister that she loves him. After that Ray and Jerry sit down to have apple jack's. Jerry pours until Ray's bowl is filled, then in the the next shot there's more in the bowl.
Corrected entry: During the event's leading up to the firing, Marcee Tidwell is in the office with Jerry. By the time lunch is over and he calls Rod at home in Arizona, Marcee is already in the kitchen serving breakfast to the little boy implying that this would still be morning, not post-lunch.(she is present for the "Show me the Money". By the way, Arizona would not be "behind" California's time. However, how could she have been to the airport, taken her flight, been picked up and made it back home, and be serving food, much less breakfast, when they called after lunch, within that span of time?Marie Lebron
Corrected entry: When Jerry comes out of his office with all his stuff he has a leather bag over his shoulder and he is carrying a box. He puts the box down and makes his speech and takes the fish and then leaves with Dorothy but he never gets the box back from where he set it down.
Corrected entry: When Jerry and Dorothy see the deaf couple in the elevator, Dorothy mentions that her favourite aunt is hearing impaired - yet at their wedding later in the movie, Dorothy doesn't have any relatives from her family attending, aside from her sister. Funny how her favourite aunt just didn't get invited to such an important event. It makes it obvious that the writer had to make up a reason for Dorothy to know sign language.
Corrected entry: The scene when Jerry ties the dress on the front porch - the strap on the dress really did break. It was not part of the script.
Corrected entry: When Jerry goes to pick up Dorothy for their date, she comes out fully dressed, shoes on. She goes outside, Laurel comes out to bring her a forgotten key. Next shot is Dorothy, shoes in hand, in the street with Jerry waiting for a car.
Corrected entry: When Jerry and Dorothy are getting married, neither Jerry nor Dorothy say "I do"...when the priest says "Do you take this woman blah blah blah" the little boy lifts up the rings, and they say "Not yet" or something like that...this happens again when the priest says "Do you take this man"...so both of them leave their wedding not saying "I do" at all.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, Cuba Gooding, Jr. is told that he is receiving a "guaranteed" contract for 11.1 million. I do not think that there is such a thing as a "guaranteed" contract in the NFL. Those only exist in the NBA, MLB, and the NHL. An NFL player can be cut at any time and the team does not have to pay the rest of the contract. The only way that they have a "guaranteed" amount of money is via a signing bonus which is paid up front but figured over the life of the contract for salary-cap purposes.
