|Plot:||Lions for Lambs begins after two determined students at a West Coast University, Arian and Ernest, follow the inspiration of their idealistic professor, Dr. Malley, and attempt to do something important with their lives. But when the two make the bold decision to join the battle in Afghanistan, Malley is both moved and distraught. Now, as Arian and Ernest fight for survival in the field, they become the string that binds together two disparate stories on opposite sides of America. In California, an anguished Dr. Malley attempts to reach a privileged but disaffected student who is the very opposite of Arian and Ernest. Meanwhile, in Washington D.C. the charismatic Presidential hopeful, Senator Jasper Irving, is about to give a bombshell story to a probing TV journalist that may affect Arian and Ernest's fates.|

"Yankee Doodle Dandy" Traditional
Continuity: The white University of Illinios football in Senator Irvings office (in the background by Janine Roth's head for much of the interview), changes positions during the interview. At times it's level on the shelf and at other times it's sitting crooked.|
Continuity: After Rodriguez rolls onto his back so that Arian can see the extent of his injury, he is then shown alternately on his left side (correct) and his stomach (impossible).
Continuity: Janine writes "Whatever it takes" in her notebook, when she is at the Senator's office, at a different point of the page (higher) than later shown, when she revises her writings.
Fact errors: When Rodriguez and Arian are giving their presentation, they place letters of induction on the projector to show the class they enlisted. A letter of induction is a draft notice. The draft was over for over thirty years when the movie takes place, and since they volunteered, they would have used DD Form 4/1 "Enlistment and Reenlistment Document"
GEOG: When Janine is riding past the White House in the taxi near the end of the movie, her view of the White House, as represented during her passing, cannot be obtained from a taxi since those streets are closed to vehicular traffic. Also, her view of the rows of graves in Arlington Cemetery during the same sequence cannot be obtained from a taxi since the paved paths in Arlington are closed to ordinary vehicular traffic as a taxi would be.
Continuity: When Janine and Senator Irving are leaving his office he puts on his blazer and his collar flips up, he attempts to flip it down as he lowers his arms but fails. When the camera switches angles his arms are down and magically so is his collar.
Continuity: When Senator Irving returns to his office after receiving a phone call, there is a lamp positioned slightly in front of the framed article (about him) that was written by Janine. When Janine was looking at the article previously, there was no such obstruction.
Continuity: Prof. Malley describes Todd's position in the early lecture as off to the side away from most of the class. But in the flashbacks, Todd is in the middle of everyone.
GEOG: In the time between the 2 soldiers falling, the helicopter would have traveled several hundred yards; not the few feet separating their impact points in the snow.
Revealing mistakes: It is obvious that many of the scenes between actors are filmed with one or the other actor not being present. For example Meryl Streep's hair is different when the shot is from behind her. Clearly it's a double.
Fact errors: Several of the Army personnel at the command center are wearing the unit patch of the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment on the right shoulder of their uniforms. The horse on the patch is facing toward the rear. The proper right shoulder combat patch has the horse facing forward. Tradition in the regiment is that the Blackhorse never faces to the rear.
Janine Roth: Says the man in the air-conditioned room.
Senator Jasper Irving: Do you want to win the War on Terror? Yes or
Todd Hayes: Who never says anything even though he never stops
Professor Stephen Malley: But you're never going to be the same
person you are right now. Promise and potential are very fickle.
Professor Stephen Malley: The decisions you make now, bud, can't be
changed but with years and years of hard work to redo it... And in
those years you become something different. Everybody does as the
time passes. You get married, you get into debt... But you're never
gonna be the same person you are right now. And promise and
potential... It's very fickle, and it just might not be there
Todd Hayes: Are you assuming I already made a decision? And also that
I'll live to regret it?
Professor Stephen Malley: All I'm saying is that you're an adult
now... And the tough thing about adulthood is that it starts before
you even know it starts, when you're already a dozen decisions into
it. But what you need to know, Todd, no Lifeguard is watching
anymore. You're on your own. You're your own man, and the decisions
you make now are yours and yours alone from here until the end.
Professor Stephen Malley: [quoting a German General] Nowhere else
have I seen such lions led by such lambs.
Janine Roth: Wow, you must be panicked.
Senator Jasper Irving: Oh no no no no. We're determined.
Senator Jasper Irving: It is my responsibility, it's part of my job
description to protect the American people and that is why we put
this new strategy into motion now.
Janine Roth: So when does it start?
Senator Jasper Irving: [pauses while looking at his watch] Ten
Professor Stephen Malley: You're good with words, Todd. But you know
what would make them even better? If they had a heartbeat.
Senator Jasper Irving: What I can say is that this strategy has
patience and determination at its core. It ensures that it puts our
fighting men in spots where they can face, and fight, and kill the
enemy, so that we can then go on about rebuilding that country. And
if it takes ten years, that's how long we stay, we do whatever it
Janine Roth: [quoting the Senator] Whatever it takes.
Senator Jasper Irving: Whatever it takes.
Janine Roth: Why did we send 150,000 troops to a country that did not
attack us, and one-tenth that number to the one that did?
Senator Jasper Irving: How many times are you people going to ask the
Janine Roth: Till we get the answer.
Todd Hayes: Look, if we're gonna spend tax dollars, our tax dollars,
to help people break the law in a safer way, why don't we have a
designated drunk-driver lane on the highway too?
Senator Jasper Irving: OK, let's play this out, we walk and afghan
reverts back to the Taliban. Only now the Taliban has metastasis
into something infinitely more vicious and potent because they are
now 2-0 against superpowers. They butcher the people that helped us
who voted and were stupid enough to put their faith in our word. So
call it not only the end of hope for 10s of millions of Afghans but
the end of American credibility but the end of America as a voice
of Righteousness in the world. And when we are forced to go back in
a couple years. We will be faced against a shattered Iraq, a
hopeless Afghanistan and a nuclear Iran. How many troops are we
going to need then? I guarantee you will be adding some zeros.
Janine Roth: We took Iraq? How did I miss that?
Ernest Rodriguez: The men who lead do work when there's work to be
