Corrected entry: Russell Crowe spits his water out before she finishes the sentence. (00:11:15)

Correction: When Jackson's wife mentions that she is having an affair with his dad, Jackson spits his water out just as she says it is his dad she is having an affair with. While he spits out the water before the sentence ends, his reaction to knowing that his wife is having an affair with his dad is not premature.

Casual Person

Corrected entry: The movie takes place in 1977. When the two leads arrive at the party, they are playing the Earth, Wind, and Fire song, "September" which was not released until 1978. Also, just before they arrive, the soundtrack is playing "Boogie Wonderland," another Earth, Wind, and Fire song that also was not released until 1978. (The band members at the party look like they are supposed to be Earth, Wind, and Fire themselves.) Later on, the soundtrack plays the Rupert Holmes song, "Escape (Pina Colada). That was not released until 1979.

Correction: Clearly the band is intended to be the real EW&F. If the real band is playing, who's to say they couldn't play songs they haven't released yet? It's meant to be an over-the-top opulent party, so they were likely paid quite a bit to perform. Playing brand new music would make sense.

Jason Hoffman

Corrected entry: Holland tells Janet to "Call 911". It is supposed to be 1977 and the first city in California to implement 911 service was San Diego in 1980.


Correction: The first city in California to implement the 9-1-1 system was Gustine, in March 1970, and by 1972, the 9-1-1 system was installed countywide. In 1972, Assembly Bill 515 was passed, mandating that 9-1-1 be implemented statewide. Although it took until 1985 to be statewide, 9-1-1 services were available in 1977.


Corrected entry: The film takes place in 1977, but when Holland March shows a guy a printed photo of Amilia's licence it says "Birthday 1979."

Correction: A California license in the 1970s had a section at the top left that reads "expires on birthday...". It means her license will require renewal on her birthday in 1979. The image has just cropped part of the writing off so only the word "birthday" remains.
