In the movie "Children of Glory", there's the tank scene, (I wouldn't ask about the validity of war films in normal cases, but this isn't from Hollywood) which plays out in the following way:
- Someone shouts that the tank is coming, at this point, the barricade is ready.
- Everyone retreats into the nearby houses.
- The tank comes, along with the supporting infantry.
- The rebels open fire from the windows and quickly grind the support down.
- Then the tank is lured into a trap, where it's flooded with Molotov cocktails, thrown from the windows.
- The crew escapes through the belly hatch.
- A street kid rushes in front of the tank and attempts to take the crew out with a (possibly stolen) pistol.
- The kid gets himself killed immediately.
- The rebels attack from two sides and successfully take out the crew from their covers.

Is this a realistic tactic, or it would have gotten the rebels killed in real life?
It's said, that they've put a significant amount of research into the movie, I'm interested in whether it's true or not.
