Max Payne

Factual error: In the film, Sgt. Jack Lupino is depicted as a United States Marine Corp Sargent. However, when Max is watching an interview with Lupino it shows him wearing either a Gunnery Sargent or Master Sargent chevrons. Not only that, but the chevrons happen to be upside down. No US Marine would ever make a mistake like that.

Factual error: As the vehicle drives on a street of 'downtown New York', on the right side of the scene as we pass store fronts, one can see the familiar symbol of the American Automobile Association - except it has CAA - Canadian AA. Canadian viewers, especially those from Toronto who recognise the city where this movie was shot, will no doubt smile at this oversight. It's early in the movie - before all the action really starts, I believe before Donal Logue's character is killed.

Other mistake: In the final gunshot sequence on the rooftop, Max Payne raises the gun up to reveal a slo-mo sequence. The handgun is coated in ice/snow. How long was he holding the gun in the air in the snowy weather?

Captain Bowen: Remember when you were a kid and you'd hold your breath when you run past a grave yard? Leave that man alone.

Trivia: At one point during the movie, Max visits a storage yard. The name of this yard is "Gognitti Storage". This is a reference to Vinnie Gognitti, who was an important character in the video game series.

Question: Was this the first PG-13 film to use the F word? If not, what movie was the first?

Answer: Hardly. The word "fuck" has been allowed, subject to certain conditions, in PG-13-rated films ever since the rating was introduced in July 1984. Prior to that (and even occasionally afterwards), it was not unheard of for a film rated as low as PG to get away with using the word, with the first use in a PG-rated film being in All The President's Men in 1976.
