Blow

Corrected entry: George Jung has been in jail for years, but at the end it seems like his young daughter hasn't aged at all.

S.Holmes

Correction: The visit from his daughter is an imagined one. He may have wished to imagine his daughter in a suspended state of ageless youth.

Corrected entry: The large house that Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz live in and have their party in was bought by Tom Cruise in real life, he and Penelope now live there.

Correction: Tom Cruise doesn't live with Penelope Cruz anymore.

Corrected entry: To prepare for the role Johnny Depp interviewed the real George Jung while in prison.

Correction: Hard to consider this trivia as it is nothing unique. Interviewing by actors of the real life subjects or relatives of the characters portrayed in films is so common it's not noteworthy.

Lummie

Corrected entry: In the scene where Depp and Diego are first meeting the drug czar in Colombia, it shows them driving up in late model Suburbans; the time frame for the scene was early to mid seventies. The suburban models they were driving up in were not created until late seventies, early eighties.

Correction: This time frame is about right. George was caught with weed in the early 70's and served his sentence until just after the mid 70's. George eventually met the Drug Lord in the late 70's, once he had heard of George's excellent work.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Diago and George are about to meet Pablo, a man confronts Diago to tell him that only George can see Pablo but he refers to George as Senior John for Johnny Depp.

Correction: He say Senior Jung (pronounced Young)...not John.

Corrected entry: In the scene after George and Mirtha first go broke - he's outside the kitchen seated at the table talking to his daughter. Mirtha gets upset and storms out of the kitchen, offscreen to another part of the house. But throughout George's conversation with his daughter you can see a shadowy someone lurking around in the kitchen - several times.

Correction: Right when this scene starts Mirtha is walking into the kitchen and you seen then to the right that there is a cook/maid in the kitchen too. Thats who is in the scene after Mirtha storms out.

Corrected entry: Near the start of the movie when Johnny Depp is walking down the beach, there is a ship in the background that is first of all going at an amazing speed plus has smoke coming out of it that does change at all.

Correction: The camera is shifting with the group of people as its axis, and the ship on the other end of the pan. it is an optical illusion, but very obvious once you know what you're looking for.
