Corrected entry: When Homer is in the Principal's office dropping out of school, the words "Principal" and "Turner" on the glass door are printed backwards (as they should be) but "Jim" isn't.
Corrected entry: Throughout the movie O'Dell walks and runs with a limp. When the boys are pulling up the railroad and hear the train coming, they all run to stop it. Somehow, on this particular run, O'Dell doesn't have his limp, but did have it before and does have it again.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the scout is at the Hickam residence to recruit Jim on a football scholarship, the scout mentions he is from "The University of West Virginia." The official name of the university is "West Virginia University," and has never been called "The University of West Virginia."
Corrected entry: Homer takes his rocket to get the washer "nozzle" welded on but the 4 fins are already welded on. Why didn't he get that person to do it?
Corrected entry: When Mr. Bykovsky helps Homer with his rocket secretly in the middle of the night, John Hickham punishes him by sending him down to the coal mine to dig coal. When Mr. Bolden does the same exact thing in broad daylight, nothing happens.
