Corrected entry: The flag in Joan Allen's office has 48 stars (Scene when she interupts her meeting to speak with Christian Slater).

Correction: The flag in question is framed on the wall, which indicates that it is a historical collectible. The flag on the pole behind her desk, her official flag, has 50 stars and is thus, correct.

Factual error: Towards the end of the movie when the President is addressing Congress, Joan Allen is seen outside of the building jogging. Joan Allen, being a senator and thereore a part of Congress, should have been inside the building.

Trivia: Judging by his looks, one would think Gary Oldman is paying homage to that Sean Penn's also somewhat 'offbeat' lawyer-characterization in "Carlito's Way".
