State and Main

Corrected entry: In the shot that had the camera peering down into the bag of cash, you can clearly see that the money is motion-picture-use money--it says so on the money. This is a particularly confusing faux pas because it is supposed to be real money, but if you see that it's motion-picture-use money, that changes the plot.

Correction: Exactly. One: the production was running out of money, so to overcome their problem, they use fake money to bribe the guy. Two: the 'good' guy is bribed to drop the charges, but they trick him by using fake money.

Mistakes

William H. Macy makes dinner plans with the Mayor and writes "Dinner with the Mayor" on the dry erase board in his office. He writes "Dinner w/ the Mayor" in the "Tuesday" slot. Then an intern comes in and accidentally wipes the appointment off the board with her shirt. Macy yells at her and tells her to rewrite the appointment on the board. The whole premise of the joke and pretty big part of the movie is that the intern rewrites the appointment in the wrong day, thereby causing the Hollywood people to miss dinner, enrage the Mayor and his wife and have the town turn on them. When the girl walks away however, the appointment is clearly rewritten in the correct day (Tuesday). This ruins the whole misunderstanding because although the appointment is in the wrong day later in the movie, at the moment the joke is supposed to be set in motion, there is no mistake.
