Corrected entry: When Kirk invites Chris to L.A., he tells him there's a ticket waiting for him at the airport. Then they hang up the phone, but Kirk didn't say which airport, which airline, or what time the flight leaves. And somehow Chris makes it to L.A. with no problem.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the old singer reveals he is gay, he mentions that someone called 'Kim' in a song is actually a guy. This suggests to us that he wrote the lyrics to this song (none of the other members are gay as there are four girls in the car with Jennifer Aniston, one for each member) yet later in the movie, Kirk says 'AC and I write the songs' and 'It's the Steel Dragon thing'.
Corrected entry: In the scenes where the "woman" is seducing Whalberg's character, you can tell that she is a woman because she has a very skinny neck with no Adam's apple. Yet in the hotel we are led to believe that she is a man because she is urinating standing up. Maybe they should have found a real transexual to play the part.
Corrected entry: Another song that's out of place is AC/DC's "Are You Ready", which was released in 1990.
Corrected entry: When Izzy is singing in the booth right after the discusion over who writes the songs, the second time "Reckless" is started, the intro is shorter. The drums start sooner than the first time and so do the guitars.
Corrected entry: In the credits/soundtrack listing the song 'Let's get Rocked' is shown 'written by Kenneth Collen, Joseph Elliott, Robert John Lange and Richard Savage, and performed by Def Leppard.' The first name listed is incorrect; it should read Phil Collen, not Kenneth.
Corrected entry: In one of the concerts, a guitarist gives Mark a drink of water. Mark throws it up and it lands on the ground, on its side. But when it shows the next few shots of Mark, it's on the stage behind him sitting straight up.
Corrected entry: When they're trying to give the impression that time is passing fast, by showing dates while Izzy sings, one of the dates reads November 31, but there's no such date. November has only 30 days.
Corrected entry: During Izzy's first concert as the Steel Dragons lead man, when he recovers from his fall he goes over and starts singing next to Kirk, stage right. Just after he fingers the former lead singer's fans in the audience, he goes off stage to wipe the blood from his forehead. From that stage right camera angle, you now see Jorgen standing where Kirk and Izzy just were, and Kirk is now playing on stage left.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Izzy first joins the band and has his photos taken the photographer calls out Mark (as in Wahlberg) instead of Izzy.
