Rent (2005)

Rent picture

Factual error: One of Angel's lyrics (in "Today For You, Tomorrow For Me) refers to the movie "Thelma and Louise." Rent (the movie) is set in 1989-90. "Thelma and Louise" was released in 1991.[This was caused when they did the move from Broadway to the screen. What happened was the stage show did not specify the year. So when they adapted the stage show to the movie, they didn't check the references. Plus it just sounds cool. Added info by Todd Loewen]

K.C. Sierra
Daltry Calhoun picture

Revealing mistake: Whenever June is supposed to be playing the harmonica, the viewer can tell she is actually not playing it but just putting it up to her mouth. Her cheeks never are pushed out or sucked in by the air she is supposedly using to play the instrument. Also at the very end when she is playing the guitar it doesn't seem that her hand movements match the music that is heard.

Factual error: The frozen treats used at certain points in this movie are labeled with nutrition labels found in the U.S. today. The labels looked extremely different in the 70's.
