Corrected entry: Arthur realises that Brian Slade is actually Tommy Stone by recognising Brian's PA Shannon in a televised press conference. However, according to the story, Arthur never sees Shannon, much less on the morning after the orgy which he has a supposed flashback to, so how can he possibly recognise her 10 years later?

Correction: Arthur doesn't realize that Brian Slade is Tommy Stone because of Shannon. He makes the connection when the computer brings up Brian's full name: Thomas Brian Stoningham Slade.


Corrected entry: The first time we see The Flaming Creatures perform, the lead singer Malcolm, stumbles in his large boots and nearly falls over.

Correction: Malcolm is actually meant to do this. You can tell this as the "stumble" is part of the jerky dance routine that Malcome does throughout the performance.


Factual error: Although the 1984 scenes are supposed to take place in New York, there are obvious shots of red double-decker buses and other London trademarks.
