Corrected entry: The attorney in the opening sequence waves around and eventually shoots himself with a Ruger SP-101 revolver. The police describe it as a Smith and Wesson. In the United States the police know the difference. If nothing else the brand is inscribed on the frames.
Corrected entry: While the boy is waiting in the hospital waiting area, a sleazy attorney harangues another patient sitting in a wheelchair, listing the patient's injuries and how much money he can sue for each one. One of the injuries the patient mentions is a broken collarbone, but his arm is not in a sling (necessary for broken collarbones) and when they leave the scene the patient is rolling his wheelchair with both arms (not possible with a broken collarbone).
Trivia: In the movie, Reggie comments on Mark's Led Zepplin t-shirt, saying they were a great band. Mark accuses her of being one of those adults who pretends to like cool bands to get close to little punks like him. This parallels an incident where Brad Renfro was reading for the role of Mark, and a suit in the production office saw his Megadeath t-shirt and claimed to like that band, too. Renfro said the same thing to the producer that Mark eventually says to Reggie in the film.Krista
