Day After Tomorrow - Wrong Uniform
In the scene where Dennis Quaid is chasing the Vice President you can see Marines in uniform in the background. They are all wearing the Dress Blue Delta uniform which is the khaki shirt and blue trousers. However, the rank on their shoulders is blue and yellow which is only sewn on to the Dress Blue jacket. The rank should have been green and khaki. You would never put a blue and yellow rank on a khaki shirt, you would be out of uniform. I don't know how the makers of this movie could let this happen. I mean, it doesn't even look right!

Actually, by military rule, anyone who is not military personnel CANNOT be in correct uniform-including actors. I believe there is an exception made for actors/actresses that are former military personnel. So, in reality, almost every actor/actress you see IN uniform is actually OUT OF uniform!

Carla and Rugjohn, are you both mental? This aint about whether the extras or actors are 'in uniform'. It's about the 'pretend' uniforms being an inaccurate representation!! Oy Vey

obviously you were a marine or in the military to have caught this. I think its very funny and alot of movies have errors like that when it comes to the "military" uniform. Good catch

By military rule? So the military can now dictate how we dress? If any Joe out there wants to dress up like a military whatever he's not going to be thrown in jail. And the movie makers out there wouldn't put up with being told what they could and couldn't dress people up like. That just doesn't make sence. So in all of the war movies made the only people in uniform are ex-military persons? Sounds fishy to me.
