Pearl Harbor - New or Old Carrier?
In the scene where the bombers are taking off of the flight deck of an aircraft carrier (which was the USS Constellation where they filmed), parts of the modern aircraft carrier can easily be seen (such as the catapults, side antennas, modern flight deck "non-skid" surface, etc) as the aircraft are taking off. This switches back and forth between modern and WWII-era carriers during the scene.

I know that battleships had catapults for seaplanes, but carriers wouldn't have needed them.

I got kicked out of the theater for that scene. I've yelled it out that WWII carriers didn't have catapault lanchers, non-skid, pad-eyes, and that's the U.S.S. Constellation.

Although its been a long time since I saw Pearl Harbour, I remember looking at the majority of the warships and laughing because many of them were obviously modern, aside from the battleships. Things like rotating radar dishes on what looked like frigates, in a time when shipborn radar was in it's infancy, as well as the size and shape of the aircraft carrier flight deck.

DNB mentioned something about pissing in a Coke bottle. It was actually blood going into the coke bottle when others were donating blood in the hospital.

Chances are you were kicked out for not knowing an awful lot about warships, their design and specifications. Do your research and you will discover that there were in fact ships equipped with catapults for planes in WWII and not only just Carriers, often Battleships had seaplanes launched from stern catapults.

I know someone who walked out of the movie after the 'urinating into coke bottles' scene. Apparently he saw it coming before it did and left, finding out he was justified when he read a review later.
