Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The soldiers watch Apocalypse Now Redux, which was edited by Jarhead editor Walter Murch.
  • While listed in the credits as Swoff's sister, Jake Gyllenhaal's character refers to her as Rini, which is in fact the real name of the actress who played the sister.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Cortez shows the picture of his wife, she is facing the right in the first shot. In all following shots, however, she is facing the left side in the picture.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): In the Interview section in the Bonus Features, Jake's character confuses Iraqis with Saudis when he is asked how he feels about the Iraqis. He also confuses Kuwaitis with Iraqis when he is asked how he feels about Kuwaitis. In the commentary it was noted that they allowed the actors to ad-lib a lot of the interview material.
