    Happy Days was grossly historically inacurate and unrealistic on so many levels. It was just fluff comedy entertainment, they didn’t bother because no watching would care. Plus a weekly TV show like that wouldn’t have the production budget to cover those sort of things. That they would have had an outfit like Flash Cadillac on says a lot. They were a neo-Sha-na-na parody of the real thing themselves, a caricature.

    My pet peeve is bad regional accents, like the kid on the bus telling Forrest “you can’t sit here”. He sounds like a down east yankee, not an LA native.

  3. I saw a clip from Hunt for Red October on youtube and a Russian poster noted how bad Sean Connery's Russian was. Which is probably true, but the film was made for English-speaking audiences and so any Russian at all sounds way better than just faking it.

    I love how in movies all Romans have British accents, as well as all Imperial officers in Star Wars, while the Stormtrooper rank and file all have American accents.
