Factual error: Carousel was not playing on Broadway in 1996, when the movie is set. We see an outside shot of the Carousel marquee on Broadway with the mayor inside watching a full scale production. A U.S. National tour with a scaled-down production began in February 1996 in Houston and closed in May 1997 in Providence, Rhode Island.
Continuity mistake: There is a scene where Al Pacino is getting dressed for a dinner while talking to one of his aids. He addresses the aide and is seen in a dressing gown with his hair all tousled and untidy. He turns away from the camera, looks in the mirror, and turns back to camera. Miraculously his hair is now tidy as can be, with not a hair out of place!
Mayor John Pappas: Lyndon Johnson said, "Everybody will give you ideas on how to get out of trouble cheaply and fast. And they all come down to this: deny your responsibility." John F. Kennedy said, "An error doesn't have to become a mistake, until you refuse to correct it."
