On the Line

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, Kevin wants to meet "the L girl" at their stop at 7pm. While Kevin is waiting, the camera goes to the clock. First it says 7pm. After waiting a few minutes, it says 7:10pm. Then when Kevin finally gets to Abby, the clock in the background only says 6:55pm.

Continuity mistake: Kevin's boss pours his glass of wheat grass to the rim, but when he turns (just a second later) it's only 3/4 of the way full.

Continuity mistake: When Kevin and his roommates are playing baseball and having a barbecue on the field, Lance's hair is brown with blond streaks. In the next scene his hair is black again.

Continuity mistake: In the last scene with Kevin and Abby she is wearing a denim jacket. When you see the newspaper picture for the scene she is wearing a leather jacket.

Plot hole: When the Chicago Post first runs the story on Kevin, there is a picture of him on the front page, next to the headline. So anyone who was following the story would have known what he looked like, which would make it impossible for Kevin's friends to get away with pretending to be him.

Trivia: Part of the movie was shot in Toronto (actually, the guys' apartment is in Toronto, I remember seeing interviews), along with where it takes place, Chicago. If you watch the credits and you watch where the cast is dancing while Al Green's singing, you can see a Tim Horton's Roll Up the Rim billboard in the background. Also, that scene takes place at the Eaton's Centre in Toronto.
