Rocky Balboa

Continuity mistake: When you see Mason sitting in his corner and he leans over to look at Rocky and then you see Rocky's calf flex. Dixon is not wearing boxing gloves, he only has tape on his hands.

Other mistake: Jim Lampley reacts to a knockdown by saying "That could be the end of the fight right there," then quickly adds "but no!" when he sees that Rocky is getting up. The problem is, we hear the "but no!" just before we see any sign that Rocky is going to get up.

Audio problem: Rocky is trying to convince Marie to work at his restaurant, outside of her apartment. The close up shot of him talking about a bus coming down the street and hitting him does not match his mouth movements, when they go to a long shot.

Marie: Do you have a reservation?
Paulie: Do I look like a freakin' Indian?

Duke: To beat this guy, you need speed. You don't have it. And you've got calcium deposits on most of your joints, so sparring is out.

More quotes from Rocky Balboa


Question: In Rocky V we learn that Rocky can't get licensed because of permanent brain damage. So how is it that, more than 15 years after the events of Rocky V, he is able to get licensed so easily?

Chosen answer: Stallone himself answered this question in an interview. "When Rocky was diagnosed with brain damage he never went for a second opinion and yielded to his wife's wishes to stop. So with the advent of new research techniques into brain damage, Rocky was found to be normal among fighters and he was suffering the results of a severe concussion. By today's standards Rocky Balboa would be given a clean bill of health for fighters.
