Trivia

Goofs

Bartle and Murphy address non-commissioned officers as "sir" numerous times throughout the film. NCOs are referred to by their rank (sergeant, staff sergeant) in the US Army, Only commissioned officers are referred to or addressed as "sir" (warrant officers can be addressed as"Mr (their last name)" or as "sir" . This is a serious error in protocol and would have been correct by the NCO being addressed immediately. See more »
