* ReadingsAreOffTheScale: When everything is going to hell and the submarine is stuck on the ocean floor, the depth gauge is far past its last marking (260 meters). 260 meters is already way past the point where the navy originally expected the hull to be crushed and destroyed.

* ReCut: Several. ''Das Boot'' was 150 minutes long for its original theatrical release in 1981, then expanded into a five-hour MiniSeries on British and German television a few years later. In 1997 Wolfgang Petersen made a new Director's Cut edit for a theatrical reissue, which clocks in at just under 210 minutes. Both the miniseries and 1997 versions have been released on DVD.
