* CaliforniaDoubling: Averted. The Navy wouldn't allow shooting at Pensacola, so shooting was done at an abandoned airbase in Washington State. So nothing was done to make anyone believe they were anywhere other than Washington, including the renaming of the RealLife "Mobile Debs" to "Puget Debs" (after the Puget Sound). Then again, trying to make Washington look like Florida would just have been silly.

* HeroOfAnotherStory: Casey Seeger. You get the feeling that if the camera were to ignore Zack Mayo and start following her around, the movie would be just as entertaining.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: Sgt. Foley's cadence during the cadets' training ("...Puget debs...") was dubbed over an earlier real-life Marine cadence about napalming children. However, this is averted in most of the Channel 4 airings of the film while they currently have the rights; the "napalm sticks to kids" variant is retained. (in 2013)
