Other mistake: During the opening traffic jam dance scene, many of the cars have dented roofs and hoods from previous takes.

Continuity mistake: The first time Mia meets Sebastian, during the traffic jam, she raises her middle finger then quickly lowers it. When she meets him at the bar and we see the scene again, she raises her finger, then waves the hand in denial and, finally, lowers it.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, after the crowd dancing scene, the camera quickly pans to the left to the girl in the yellow dress lying on top of the red car. After the pan, all the shadows of the people are pointing in the opposite direction, revealing that they shot the latter scene at a different time of day and the shots were combined to make it look like a single continuous shot.

Other mistake: When we are shown Mia watching a YouTube clip with an interview with The Messengers, the clip is actually shown as paused but is still playing. (01:08:40)

Continuity mistake: After Sebastian's sister leaves his apartment right after she's been sitting on the stool and writing something at the table, he starts practising at the piano, but the table is missing and the stool is in the corner.

Sebastian: I'm letting life hit me until it gets tired. Then I'll hit back. It's a classic rope-a-dope.

Trivia: At the Oscar ceremony in 2017, the film was accidentally named Best Picture, instead of true winner Moonlight, when presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were accidentally handed the wrong envelope. Such a gaffe had never occurred in the Oscars' history before.
