* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: Leaving aside the fact that Sidewinders aren't possible to mount on an Apache, the warheads on Sidewinders are ''tiny'' compared to, say, tank shells. They contain only a couple of pounds of explosive, and wouldn't cause MonumentalDamage to any building they hit; they would in no way would cause the top of the Chrysler Building to be chopped off, and probably wouldn't hurt Godzilla either.

Anti-tank missiles like the Hellfire would be more practical; Sidewinders are designed for small, fast-moving aircraft.


Added DiffLines:

** Harpoons are also not practical for engaging land targets; their seeker heads are designed for use over water, which has minimal obstacles and radar interference. Ground terrain creates a chaotic radar picture, which can confuse a Harpoon's seeker head. A variant of the Harpoon was developed for ground targets, but it didn't enter service until 2000.
** The F/A-18 squadron leader says to his wingmen before launching his missiles "save your Mavericks", referring to the AGM-65 Maverick air to ground missile. However, when shots of the planes are shown, none of the F/A-18s are shown carrying any such missiles.
** The lead F/A-18 is the only one that deploys Harpoons to destroy Madison Square Garden, yet without returning to base to resupply, is able to fire two more salvos of Harpoons from his underwing pylons at Godzilla on the Brooklyn Bridge.

* BilingualBonus: A Japanese man sees Godzilla and exclaims something in Japanese. It translates roughly to, "I left Japan to get away from this kind of thing!" Don't think about it too hard.

* NewYorkSubway: Godzilla burrows into here to make it its new home. [[spoiler:Turns out, it did this to get to Madison Square Garden to make it her nesting grounds.]]

** Don't forget about people constantly getting Nick's surname wrong. Even a news reporter does this after Lucy leaks his taps to the news.

** Military pilots cannot fire missiles over the United States or any of its territories without the express and direct permission of the President.

** Military pilots cannot fire missiles over the United States or any of its territories without the express and direct permission of the President. It's reasonable to assume the president would give it in this scenario, but never explicitly stated.

*** Iguanas, from which Godzilla mutated, are ''herbivorous'' (eat plants), not ''piscivorous'' (eat fish).
