Factual error: In the helicopter scene at the end of the movie, after the RPG is launched at the Huey Helicopter, Danny McBride pulls back violently on the cyclic stick between his legs to avoid the rocket, but instead of moving backwards, the helicopter ascends in altitude, which would only happen when the pilot pulls up on the collective stick, located on his left. Pulling back on the cyclic with that amount of force would have certainly caused the helicopter to crash into the trees located behind the aircraft.ClownBabyIX

Character mistake: In the scene where Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, and John Malkovich are having lunch outside on a river in New Orleans, right after Mary-Louise Parker gets off the pay-phone, John Malkovich reads off the tail number of a helicopter flying over as "N9745C", even though the number is visible as "N9748C". A few minutes later, when the three are talking to James Rema in Mobile, in the airport control tower, they see the helicopter (again, visible as "N9748C"), only this time, John Malkovich correctly identifies it as "N9748C".
