*** He does note, however, that he can only learn it so fast because he can already speak ancient Egyptian. On Earth it hasn't been a living spoken language in millennia, as Daniel notes, and at first he doesn't realize they're even speaking Egyptian until he hears some words that sound similar. At this point he merely has to learn where Sha'uri's people's dialect diverged in pronunciation from the ancient form, rather than learning the whole language from nothing.

This would be equivalent of only reading [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Shakespeare]], then learning modern English soon after first hearing it.

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: While the film's treatment of the military is far from accurate or flattering in general, there is one military error that could have been corrected by ''anyone'' with a little military experience. At one point O'Neil calls Kawalski, his second in command, "Lieutenant". Not only that, he's credited as "Lieutenant Kawalski" in the credits. The problem is that his rank insignia are a pair of silver oak leaves, which he wears throughout the entire movie in plain sight. Those silver oak leaves mark him as a ''Lieutenant Colonel'', a considerably higher rank than Lieutenant. It can be presumed that filmmakers Emmerich and Devlin were simply unaware that you don't call a Lieutenant Colonel "Lieutenant" unless you want him very, ''very'', angry at you. And if you don't want to use his entire rank, you'd call him "Colonel."

* {{Bishonen}}: Ra. (Which led to some ViewerGenderConfusion.ViewerGenderConfusion - definitely understandable, given what movie [[TheCryingGame the actor had previously appeared in]].)

* PetTheDog: About the only time any of the military members of the team treat Jackson with any kind of sympathy is after he first exits the Stargate, [[TeleportationSickness covered in frost and disoriented]] from the transport process. Even so, they probably only give him said sympathy because they just dealt with that themselves moments before.

Even so, they probably only give him said sympathy because they just dealt with that themselves moments before. It's definitely justified, given that right after this, he admits that he made some really dumb assumptions about being able to get them home again, and has stranded them.

In 1928, a [[ImportedAlienPhlebotinum strange circular device]] is uncovered in Egypt. Cut to the present day, where it somehow ended up in possession of the United States military. With the mind of the unorthodox, [[TheWormGuy absent-minded archaeologist and linguist]] Daniel Jackson (James Spader), they manage to figure out how to use that ancient device. What they learn is that this "Stargate" opens a wormhole, leading to a desert planet
