True Grit

Other mistake: Research in the end credits is misspelled "Reasearch."

Other mistake: When Mattie is going to get water from the creek, she is shown carrying a large, bulky, heavy wooden bucket. Had they been carrying this in their gear, it would have been visible, but this bucket is never seen among their equipment prior to this scene. Not to mention, it would have made much more sense to have used a canvas, collapsible bucket as they used in the original film.

Continuity mistake: In the first shot of the dead man hanging form the tree, his head appears to be about 12" from the tree limb. After Mattie climbs up to cut him down, his head is several feet from the tree limb.

LaBoeuf: You give out very little sugar with your pronouncements. While I sat there watchin' I gave some thought to stealin' a kiss... Though you are very young, and sick... And unattractive to boot. But now I have a mind to give you five or six good licks with my belt.
Mattie Ross: One would be just as unpleasant as the other.
