Because I know you really want to know!

In the previous post I asked you to find the flaw with the scene.

Maverick(Tom Cruise) says that his parents loved that music and that his mother would ask him to play "Sittin' on the dock of the bay" over and over again.  Later in the scene he says that his father disappeared in 1965 and that his mother died shortly thereafter.  Well, the Otis Redding classic wasn't even recorded until August 1967 and it wasn't released until 1968. Timeline infraction lol!

Ah! I'm so grateful you put me out of my misery. I watched that scene too many times to count. I was watching the lighting, the furniture, their clothes.

Gah.

Good catch Mr. O.
